They say when it comes to your baby, “breast is best.” That’s true. Breastmilk, which is often dubbed as “liquid gold” has tons of benefits for both the mother and the baby.
Unfortunately, breastfeeding will not be a walk in the park. In fact, a lot of moms cannot fully commit to exclusive breastfeeding for variety of reasons – the need to go back to work, lack of milk supply, pain or discomfort, limitations on breastfeeding tools, and the list goes on.
Thankfully, Babymama was born.
What is Babymama?
It all started in 2009. Owner Mi’ann Oblea was looking for a breast pump that is both affordable and comfortable to use.
After doing her research, she found out that the quality breast pumps are effective but comes with a hefty price tag while the cheaper ones below P10,000 have “horrible reviews.”
She saw the need for an effective and economical breast pump that an average working mother can afford. She decided to look into Korean breast pumps, which gave the best of both worlds.
Instead of selling in malls, Oblea decided to start her own brand, Babymama, and maximized e-commerce platform. Since then, Babymama grew and expanded its product list.
Aside from being the exclusive distributor of Spectra (Korea) and Ameda (USA) brands, Babymama also has milk storage bags, lactation aids, wipes, toothpaste for kids, and other kids’ paraphernalia. There are also a lot of products available for moms like nursing bra and girdle.
