Pigeon Only Moms Breastfeeding Advocacy Campaign + Giveaway

By 4:44:00 PM , , ,


It’s long been studied and proven that the benefits of breastfeeding are unmatched by any other. As a brand with the mission of supporting the joys and challenges of parenthood, Pigeon recently launched its Only Moms Breastfeeding Advocacy to celebrate the unique and phenomenal ability of moms to breastfeed their babies.


I was so lucky to be part of this campaign where Pigeon reached out to numerous moms and moms-to-be at their recent Only Moms Breastfeeding Event at the 3rd Floor of SM Makati last August 20. It was actually a week-long event with fun activities, breastfeeding solutions booths, and amazing prizes for participants, just in time for Breastfeeding Month.

Moms and dads learned more about why breastfeeding is indeed #BestFeeding, both in terms of health and practicality, while everyone else gained better understanding and appreciation of what breastfeeding moms go through to better help and support them.


Pigeon Gentle Fit Breastshield has air-tight ring firming any type of breast. With air-tight, it can pump different stimulation modes to produce milk glands. It can be switched from simulation mode to express mode. Electric Breast Pumps are also available—the Portable and Pro—and these are perfect for on-the-go moms or those who like to customize their breast expression experience.

The event was made more enriching with tips and advice about breastfeeding solutions by certified parenting and lactation expert, Abbie Yabot. Richwell Phils Inc., COO, Maye Yao Co Say shared her own insights about why breastfeeding should be given more importance. While Pigeon Brand Ambassador, Shamcey Supsup-Lee, was able to lend a relatable voice for new moms like her going through their own breastfeeding journey.


Abbie Yabot shares tips how mommies can perfectly latch their babies. The baby must be facing the mommy, tummy to tummy. Help babies to open their mouth with clean hands to take their nipple. Check 5 signs of a good latch.

1. Cheeks are rounded.
2. The lip should be down. Aim the nipple toward the baby’s upper lip/nose, not the middle of the mouth.
3. Baby shows swallowing and gulping. Remember to keep your baby’s ear, shoulder, and hip in alignment, which will make swallowing easier.
4. Part of areola should be into the mouth of your baby. His nose is slightly away from your breast.
5. When your baby comes off the breast, the nipple is not flattened.

One of the breastfeeding mom's struggle is nipple soreness. May Yao says, don't feel pressured and don't wait for it to get sore. Let your nipple rest and don't worry for inverted nipples. She recommended Pigeon's nipple puller for inverted nipples. It has nipple shield that soothes the breast.

According to Shamcey, eating lots of malunggay, having soup, and power pumping every three hours are some of the things she does to make sure she produces more milk. “I’m just glad that I get help from Pigeon in terms of providing me with what I need when I encounter difficulties,” Shamcey pointed out.


She continued, “The breast pump is great because I can continue to make sure I have enough for Nyke even when I’m not always with her. And my mother-in-law bought me the nipple cream. I recommend for moms to invest in nipple cream. When you’re breastfeeding, it’s really going to hurt so you’ll need all the help you can get,” she advised.

Despite the challenges of breastfeeding, Shamcey managed. “We don’t want our baby to get sick. Nothing can really replace breastmilk. They’ve not been able to make a formula that can mimic what breastmilk can do for the baby,” she concluded.




Abbie encouraged moms further to keep on breastfeeding despite the challenges because there are solutions, “Yes, there are challenges that can be quite daunting, but there are good solutions. And that’s what Pigeon emphasizes,” she said. “For moms who feel like they are not producing enough milk, it’s actually helpful to just keep breastfeeding and pumping. The more milk you express, the more your body will produce. It’s also best to use a breast pump to keep the milk flowing,” Abbie added.


And while moms with newborn infants are the main audience of the breastfeeding advocacy and event, Pigeon sees a larger and more inclusive need to drive awareness on its importance. Statistics here in our country show a major lack of support and encouragement for moms to breastfeed. By educating more people about this, Pigeon is aiming to help build a stronger support system – that includes dads, family, and friends – for moms who are going through the journey, as well as the infants whose health and well-being is top priority.

“We’d like to encourage everyone to be breastfeeding advocates, because our support plays a crucial part in mom and baby’s breastfeeding journey,” Maye concludes.

  5. Breastfeeding is best feeding because it is all that my baby needs and more. Apart from the nutrition and protection that my baby gets, nothing beats the bond that breastfeeding formed between us. I'm proud to be breastfeeding and will continue to do so as long as my baby wants to :)

    I believe it is the bestfeed because my Mom used to feed us more of her milk and the benefits for me as a kid before is good. I had a good mental and physical health and most of all the bond of the mother and child will become stronger because of the physical attachment thru breastfeeding!

  7. My baby weighs 10 kls and has 1 tooth out at 6 months/3 days. He is such a happy and very charming baby. Aside from the nutrition my baby can get through my breastmilk, the bond and connection we created is endless. I'll get the magical feeling that the world only revolves around us whenever we are breastfeeding. Just a look in his eyes, and the world stops. Leaving me no worries, making all problems disappear. Nothing can top/change that feeling.

  11. Breastfeeding is bestfeeding because it has a lot of benefits not only for the mom but also for the baby. It lessens the chances of having breast cancer for the mom and it boosts the immune system of the baby because of the antibodies that are transferred through breastmilk.

  13. As a first time mom, breastmilk or mother's milk is the bestfeeding for all babies because it helps our little one to fight any kind of diseases. It also give more energy, nutrients and vitamins that helps our little one to be a "SUPER BABY ". it also one of the best BOND between a mother and a baby. 2 months from now i will give birth to my first born child and breastfeed to my little one; hopefully if I have enough supply of breastmilk I can also give to the babies that needs it.

  15. Breastfeeding is bestfeeding because of a lot of reasons. First, God created a woman's body the way it is because he knows that our liquid gold is what's best for the little one. Second, It's free and every mother has it Third, you woudn't worry that it might be contaminated and that it can harm your baby in anyway. Breastfeeding is one of the ways to show our unconditional love to our child, even if it is painful at times we just take a deep breath and let them latch as we know this is what's best for them! Have a happy bestfeeding journey! ��

  16. Breastfeeding is best coz it’s not just about feeding it is all about loving.
    I am a working mom and 141kms away from my 7months old baby boy. Even though distance separated us, I make sure he gets the right nutrition from my breastmilk. I am pumping milk at work and make sure it was stored properly until I get home. People tell me it’s hard and difficult because I have to carry a fridge-to-go every week in addition to by luggage; yet, I am determined. It’s my way of showing him that I can endure everything just to make sure he’ll be healthy. Whenever I come home and see him smile, I know I did the right choice.
    Mothers may not be always physically present but their love and care for babies will always be evident. How babies feel and know it? hmmmmm….it could be the breastmilk that does the talking.

  19. Breastfeeding offers a special way to enhance the bond between moms and babies. As a firsttime mom, I learned that breastmilk guarantees that my little one grows strong, smart and happy. She is turning a month old by the end of the month and I plan to breastfeed her until 2 years old.

  29. As a first time mom, I really made sure that my baby was breast fed. It's the best bonding you can have with your little one as an infant. And as a mother, for me it is very fulfilling that my baby was breast fed. With breastfeeding, you are sure that you are giving EVERYTHING that your baby needs. If they have colds/cough, you don't need to give them any medicine, you just have to feed them with breastmilk. They don't even need to drink water because again, your breast milk is enough for their bodies. It's how perfect and amazing our God is. There are no powdered milk and other baby processed foods could match breast feeding bacause it's the BEST feeding you can give for your baby. Our God made sure of that. :)

  39. Breastfeeding is BEST feeding because of the important benefits it gives and offers to the baby and to the mothers as well. It protects the babies from a long list of illnesses and protects the baby from developing allergies. Plus, it can save you a lot of money compared to the commercialized milk.
    When i gave birth to my second child, i had witnessed the importance of breast milk /breastfeeding to the babies,most especially to the preemies or preterm babies. Breast milk acts as their medicine and the preemies babies received positive outcome after drinking breast milk from their mothers. From NICU they were transferred to nursery room. And breastfeeding is one of the important emotional bonding between the mother and the child.
