What are Lacta Hoops?

Image

Lacta Hoops are breastfeeding/nursing bracelet that help mothers remember which side of the breast they last nursed. The bracelet is reversible so just flip it and you’ll know what side of the breast to offer on your next feeding.

Some mother uses scrunchies, pony tails, clips, pins etc. but some of these items offer risk to your baby, like pins.  Lacta Hoops is made of 100% silicone (the material used for making some baby toys). It is also food grade and non-toxic. It is also cold and hot resistant therefore you can sterilize it!

It is also a good fashion accessory 🙂 since it is soft and does not contain choking hazard (like beaded bracelets). You can also use it to a distracted baby while nursing.

You can check this link to know how the Lacta Hoops are used 🙂

Recommended Breastmilk Storage Period

Recommended Breastmilk Storage Period

Reference: Dietary Prescription Food Guide Pyramid Second Edition: for Filipino Infants, Children and Adolescents by Philippine Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition

When my son started eating solids, our pediatrician gave us a pamphlet about the diet of Filipino infants, children and adolescents. The title is “Dietary Prescription Food Guide Pyramid Second Edition: for Filipino Infants, Children and Adolescents”.

The pamphlet also contains the recommended breastmilk storage period. I create a “table form” of the said information.
