    Kritika is only halfway through her pumping journey, but her transformation has been INCREDIBLE. She has gone from stress and anxiety about her milk supply, to finding peace in pumping and balance in her life. Now, she's making more milk WITHOUT pumping more!

    This is exactly why we created the Pumping for Working Moms Program! We could not be more proud of her and can't wait to continue to work with her as she continues to work toward her goal.

    In a male-dominated workplace, she EXCEEDED her feeding goal! // Client Interview with Kristi

    In a male-dominated workplace, she EXCEEDED her feeding goal! // Client Interview with Kristi

    Kristi was one of our first working moms to go through the Pumping for Working Moms Program and it was her experience that helped shape the program into what it is today. Her story of making pumping work at work, surrounded mostly by male coworkers, will resonate with you on some level. She is smart, dedicated, and was a pleasure to work with! Can't wait to see her back in the program again!

    1st time mom pumped enough milk for her son! // Client Interview with Shelley

    1st time mom pumped enough milk for her son! // Client Interview with Shelley

    Shelley tried 3 other lactation consultants for pumping help with no success before joining us inside the Pumping for Working Moms Program. She went from being an undersupplier to an oversupplier, from working to not working to working again, and through other major life transitions during the first year of her son's life.

    Shelley also believes in this program so much, that she's even sponsored a member who can't afford to join us, we're so thankful for people like her! She put in so much hard work to meet her goals, and her husband was a huge support as well. We loved getting to know Shelley as we worked alongside her to pump fast and efficiently in a way that worked for her individually.

    Pumping a full milk supply as a TWIN MOM! // Client Interview with Elicia

    Pumping a full milk supply as a TWIN MOM! // Client Interview with Elicia

    Elicia joined our coaching program right when we first launched in early 2022 when she was pregnant with her twins and had incredible results! It was not an easy journey for her at times, but being well-prepared made all the difference in meeting her goals. Her happy, determined attitude was such a delight to work with and reminds me of so many of the 100+ mothers who have joined our program over the last 1.5 years.

    She shares with us her story in this interview. Here are a few impressive highlights from her pumping experience:

    🔥 was able to have an early discharge from the NICU

    🔥 established a full milk supply for 2 babies within 2 weeks postpartum

    🔥 switched to exclusively pumping with confidence and no regrets

    🔥 continued to pump efficiently after returning to work

    🔥 EXCEEDED her 1-year pumping goal for BOTH babies

    and so much more. I loved hearing about her accomplishments and her experience inside our program. This was not easy, but she worked incredibly hard and utilized everything we had to offer and it paid off over and over again for her. We are SO proud of her!!

    #38 Pumping with Hyper-lactation Syndrome | Elisabeth

    #38 Pumping with Hyper-lactation Syndrome | Elisabeth

    Elisabeth Anderson-Sierra, a Certified Lactation Counselor and BabyBuddha’s Director of Lactation Services, has played an instrumental role in optimizing BabyBuddha’s small but mighty breast pump so it’s the most portable, effective hands-free option on the market.

    She also has a rare condition, hyper-lactation syndrome, which results in her pumping around 200 oz. of breastmilk per day (10x the average a mother typically pumps). Not only does this provide a unique perspective and wealth of expertise when it comes to breastfeeding/pumping, but it’s also led to Elisabeth donating 350,000 oz. of breastmilk to date (a Genius Book World Record!)
