As Salam Alikum Readers here’s some pumping advice in pictures
As Salam Alikum Readers
Today I’m going to write a review of all the breast pumps I’ve tried, I’ll list the names and types of pumps I’ve tried and how I felt that they’ve worked for me personally .
Spectra love the setting of this pump , bottles are a bit oddly shaped not a fan of the one piece flanges as it’s harder to get into the pumping bras , note there are medela hacks to use medala parts with the spectra pump I’ll try them and give a review. Still playing around with the settings to figure out what personally works for me.
Medela is a good pump there are several different models I have personally tried the harmony hand pump the Lactina pump, symphony, in style pump they all work and are easy to use . There are so many different types of medala pumps and different size flanges it’s super easy to use just be very careful with the suction it’s super easy to accidentally hurt your nipples but using to much suction. Will show you the hacks I’ve used in another post in sha Allah.
Avent Manuel pump easy to use and store works great like the design.Love this design and the cushions flange pump. Not really a fan of the bottles because they are oddly shaped and a huge size even this smallest size ones.
Haakaa is a suction based cup thing that’s great for catching the second boob drips while baby nurses . Only issue I have is my baby seems to like to kick it off the other breast while she’s feeding. The suction and take a minute or so to get right .
Evenflo double electric pump it works like the extra cushion of the breast pump inserts small easy to pack design, don’t care for the one piece style flanges. I do like the extra flange cushions and I found a hack I use with medala flanges and evenflo cushions.
Amadela purely yours personal and hospital grade all I can say is don’t both they didn’t have any suction or speed even at the highest setting huge waste of time. Not a fan of the one piece flanges they are personal a pain to deal with and award to wash and get into pumping bras.like the duckbill valves and they will fit up in the medala parts I’ll show you the hack later.
My Last Goodbye
The time has come for my “last goodbye”,
On this earth,
Thought I would let you know,
For all its worth
This “last goodbye”,
I want see you again,
I know you’re not in that body,
But it’s all that’s left on this earth,
And my children,
By my side,
I’m trying to say,
“My last goodbye.”
All I ask,
Is strength from Allah ,
To see me through,
“My last goodbye”,
My heart may be broken,
But with Allah by your side,
Suffering and pain,
Will no longer be inside.
Sweet peace to you,
As you take that final ride.
“My last goodbye”,
My precious babies
Has you now,
Forever, in his bosom

Yesterday I had a very bad experience at the airport .
My day started off good and I was excited and nervous as I was flying alone with a 15 month old went through the line got my boarding pass from the airline I was flying on then went through security and that is were I ran into issues.
The security people were not helpful and I am not fluent in Arabic , and they didn’t speak English so it was very hard the few who claimed to speak English didn’t understand me at all and there is no paging system in the airport what kind of airport doesn’t have a paging system?
The problem is over a piece of paper apparently I forgot to get a piece of paper from the police department in the town I was staying in because I stayed more than 3 months .
They had me run all over the airport looking for my husband I had several panic attacks and dissolved into tears , They finally found my husband and the issue was almost resolved had to travel back to the town I was staying in to get dumb piece of paper.
My husband he re-booked his flight and left me with his brothers and his Brother in law . Went to claim my bags and guess what they sent one on the airplane so I don’t know if I’ll ever see it ?
I rode in the car back to the town and am now just sitting here waiting.

Allah is the best of planners and providers.
Allah gives trials and tests to those he chooses.
Allah has tried far better people with far worse trials and they stood firm steadfast and far more patient then I.
Allah sends mercy and ease in due time to those who remain patient. All that being said I have to tell myself this sometimes on a daily basis. I have had such a difficult time and have such a heavy heart right now.
SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) is so bitter sweet it has its ups and downs and moments of truth.
I pray that Allah helps and heals my daughter and son.
I pray that Allah protects them and keeps safe and upon the straight path. I pray that Allah blesses my children and keep them strong steadfast and patient.
I pray I can make it through my test. I pray I can handle it all with steadfastness and patience.. Ya Allah
