A mother expressed with a breast pump half a liter of breast milk while running the New York marathon

Molly Waitz is a 27-year-old mother who gave birth to her baby Bode eight months ago. Last weekend she ran a marathon for the first time, the one in New York, and since she is breastfeeding her son, she did not know how to run for several hours. She then decided to use a portable breast pump during the race, with which she expressed half a liter of breast milk .

As it did? She placed the pump inside her sports bra, and the expressed milk was collected in BPA-free bags specially designed for proper conservation.

The pump he used is Willow, a new cordless breast pump that we have presented to you some time ago, with which you can express milk without using your hands. It can be used while you are doing anything else, such as running a marathon.

The pump, connected via Bluetooth to an app, alerted the runner when the bag was full. So, he took the bag out of the pump and placed it in a backpack that he carried during the race. And he did the same thing again later.

The portable breast pump is a revolution for its practicality and discretion, and is for sale in the United States and is priced at $ 499 (450 euros).

The mother finished the race in six hours and 46 minutes , according to official race results, and pumped out nearly 20 ounces (just over half a liter) of breast milk.

“I first pumped somewhere between miles three and four and then I did it again from the Queensboro Bridge, which was mile 16,” he said. “I slowed down a bit to do it, but I really didn’t have to. You could do it blindfolded,” he told GMA.

Molly ran a marathon while pumping milk for her baby . It has been a personal challenge for her, and she wanted to give a message to other mothers:

“Anything is possible if you want to do it.”

Breastfeeding in children older than one year: breastfeeding from 12 months is not spoiling

The first thing that caused me doubt when writing the post was the title. I have often heard the terms prolonged breastfeeding to refer to children older than 12 months who are still nursing. Or breastfeeding in older children. And yet, I get the impression that these terms refer to something that is not normal, as if breastfeeding had to have a short duration or children beyond the age of 2 years were considered too old to breastfeed.
