Drawing from her own personal experience as a pumping mom, PumpEase™ and Snugabell creator/owner Wendy Bell has developed a product and company that offers quality support to pumping moms and now has a new line of maternity/nursing wear, the Toni Top line. She brings together quality products that combine ingenuity with quality and fashion. Along with a beautiful giveaway opportunity for Leakies, Wendy answers a few questions, sharing her passion, mothering wisdom, and how her company is celebrating World Breastfeeding Week. I’m so grateful for the support of PumpEase™ for TLB and all Leakies and hope you enjoy the interview and giveaway.
TLB: What would you like readers to know about your company?
Wendy: We are a mission-based business that is socially conscious and WHO Code compliant.
TLB: How many employees or contract workers do you have and how is Snugabell breastfeeding friendly as a company?
Wendy: We now have seven employees/contractors on our team. We haven’t had the opportunity to flesh out a breastfeeding policy as none of our employees have ever been pregnant or nursing, however we would certainly encourage the new mom to bring her baby to work, wear her baby and feed on demand.
TLB: It’s World Breastfeeding Week, how is Snugabell celebrating?
Wendy: We are recruiting moms from across the nation to “Pump Across America”. “Like” our Facebook page(s) to find out more, including details about all the fantastic prizes we are giving away like a LLLI-endorsed Hygeia breast pump package worth more than $300!
TLB: What are some practical ways everyone can promote breastfeeding?
Wendy: Talk about breastfeeding; offer support to a breastfeeding mom (LLLI phone number, refer an IBCLC, tell her about KellyMom.com, etc); advocate for a breastfeeding mom that is receiving misinformation.

Do Not Disturb door hanger
