Why does the Pasuk add the word "l'Ya'akov" by each of the sons born to Bilhah and Zilpah?

Tosfos ha'Shalem (1), Ramban: To teach us that although they were the sons of the maidservants, Ya'akov considered them his children just like the sons of Rachel and Le'ah. 1

And the reason that it writes "l'Ya'akov Ben Chamishi" and "Ben Shishi" by the birth of Yisachar and Zevulun (Pesukim 17,19) is because of the large number of sons that Le'ah bore, to teach us that Ya'akov considered them all important (though it is not clear why we would have thought otherwise).
