A recent survey of more than 1,000 mums found an overwhelming love of a good brew!  The survey, which was commissioned by leading breastfeeding brand Medela, explored what mums would do if they were given 15 minutes extra each day, found that almost half would use it to enjoy a hot cup of tea!

The survey was completed by 1,066 parents and quite simply asked, if you had an additional 15 minutes in the day, how would you spend it?

The majority of parents, 49%, would enjoy a hot cuppa, whereas 26% would opt for a relaxing bath and 25% would make the most of the time to catch up on a lack of sleep and have a nap. So although sleep deprived and no doubt in need of a hot bath… a good cuppa came out on top! Others commented that they would spend quality time with their older children or partner, read, watch TV, eat a meal without being interrupted or simply sit and enjoy the peace and quiet – the list really is endless

Time is precious for all parents, especially those who are both breastfeeding and expressing as they balance this with all the other responsibilities that come with being mum!  Medela is committed to supporting all mothers and is delighted to be able to give back some valuable free time to mums who choose to express with its multi-award winning Swing Maxi Double Electric Breast Pump.

Double pumping, compared to single pumping has been proven to be twice as fast and can help mums to express up to 18% more breast milk in a single 15 minute expressing session. Thanks to Medela’s 2-phase expression technology, mum can express with the Swing Maxi in the same way that baby feeds at the breast. Combining this with the benefits of double pumping, expressing can be quicker and more efficient than ever before – saving mums up to 15 minutes every time they pump! So, what are you waiting for… put the kettle on mums!

Charlotte Price, Marketing Manager at Medela UK Commented “As a mum myself, I know just how hard it can be to grab two minutes peace never mind 15, so to have the opportunity to save some precious free time by double pumping rather than single pumping is just fantastic.  The award winning breast pump will support all mums who choose to express and save them some free time to enjoy that much needed hot cup of tea!”
