While engineering Nurture, the goal was to develop a product that mimics the benefits hand massage delivers. In order to achieve these benefits, certain aspects of the technology that lend to its performance, also lends to the size of the product. We are excited to help mama’s out there hoping to increase their milk supply and spend less time pumping, while having their hands back! We encourage users to incorporate Nurture as frequently as they can manage; and leaving the control box at work, or where they pump most often, is an amazing solution to traveling with less equipment! Nurture comes with a convenient carrier bag and rechargeable battery packs are available for purchase on the website. If size is a concern, to make the load a little lighter when traveling to and from work, we recommend leaving Nurture where you pump most often, and incorporating it into your routine at that time.
