NATURE’S SUPERFOOD, MUM’S SUPERPOWER!

Celebrate Your #BoobPower! This Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the unsung heroes in our lives – our Superhero Mums. These extraordinary women don’t wear capes or fly through the sky: they naturally produce a complex, yet perfectly balanced blend of nutrients, antibodies, and hormones tailored to meet the specific needs of a growing infant.

Through this ‘superhero elixir’, otherwise known as ‘Breastmilk’, Mothers pass on antibodies, which provides passive immunity for longer. The thick yellowish milk (colostrum) produced for the first few days following birth is particularly rich in antibodies.

In recognition of this amazing ability, Pippeta, the brand behind award-winning hands-free breast pumps, together with Lactation Consultant, Maria Myers are aiming to highlight this often taken for granted superpower.  

Myers says: ” Breastmilk and our boobs are the dynamic duo, which provide nourishment and connection. Breastmilk is in fact a living organism that protects baby and changes to always provide the nutrients they need.  Boobs deliver this liquid gold elixir: a superhero concoction crafted by nature to bring health, immunity, and a bond between a mama and her baby.

“Not only is breastmilk free, but it also prevents the need for expensive medicines and treatments! Due to its immunological properties, breastmilk can treat a whole range of conditions for both mum and baby. This Mother’s Day, let’s raise a toast to all our incredible mums and their #BoobPower! A dedicated superpower, which lies in the nurturing magic of breastfeeding.”

Breastmilk has natural antibacterial properties, so it can be used to treat a range of skin problems including cuts and scrapes. But did you know that breastmilk can also help heal…
