"Breastfeeding…the Very Heart of Our Business"
Medela’s primary focus is breastfeeding…by helping moms to successfully breastfeed their babies and to do so for as long as they choose. Medela’s Breastfeeding Division exists to enhance mother and baby health through the life-giving benefits of breastmilk.
Founded in 1961 in Zug, Switzerland by Olle Larsson, Medela continues to grow under the ownership of the Larsson family today. Medela serves its customers through 13 subsidiaries distributing to over 90 countries worldwide. Medela’s U.S. subsidiary, Medela, Inc., has been serving the American market for over 25 years.
Medela is the first manufacturer in the United States to develop a workplace program to meet the needs of working mothers. Through the Corporate Lactation Program, businesses support breastfeeding employees and their families by providing breastfeeding counseling and breastpumps in an accessible, private, pleasant location. This program has been instrumental in making American businesses more "nursing-mother-friendly" with programs in major corporate firms.
I work in Oregon and we have great laws for breastfeeding mothers. I am sure I have Medela to thank in part for these benefits.
I do not know about you but I developed a great relationship with my lanolin after I had my baby. During the first weeks of breastfeeding mothers may experience nipple tenderness and cracking. Medela's Tender Care lanolin offers soothing relief for sore nipples. Medela's Tender Care Lanolin is 100% safe for mom and baby and does not need to be removed prior to nursing. It contains all natural ingredients and is preferred by moms over other formulas. Medela's Tender Care Lanolin is specially formulated to glide on smoothly and gently.
Tender Care Hydrogel pads provide instant relief for sore nipples! They cool on contact and are contoured for a perfect fit. Tender care Hydrogel pads are even reusable. The are easy to use, simple run under cool water for 1-2 seconds, shake off and set aside for 2 minutes. After that you can place the gel side of the pad directly on your nipple.
I had my first experience with gel pads while I was still in the hospital. Like most (if not all) new mom's nursing was a shock to my nipples and they quickly became sore and tender. The gel pads helped cool them and relieved the pain quickly.
