Saving Breastmilk : Milkies

You might of heard someone talk about breastmilk as liquid gold. The reason for that is because it just is. It’s precious and we don’t want to waste it. I remember when I was pumping my milk for Mavrick I actually dropped a whole 4 oz on the floor. I wanted to cry. Its hard enough to breastfeed, so having to add pumping on top of that… you want to make sure you keep every drop.

I received a Milkies Milk-Saver Breast Milk Collector as a gift from a friend and even though Sienna is on the verge of turning 2 months old, I have to admit that I haven’t used it until this morning.

Basically it collects your leaking breast milk when you nurse/pump, allowing you to store extra breast milk effortlessly. To be honest, I never knew how much milk would leak while I nursed or pumped. I always wear a nursing pad so clearly all the milk would be collected in there. But when I forgot to put a pad once, and noticed my jeans were drenched, I thought… okay I do have a lot leaking.

This morning, I decided to pump and put the collector on my other breast (inside my bra) It is actually very comfortable but I didn’t have high hopes. I was told you could save a good amount of breastmilk if you used the collector, but I was skeptical. I didn’t pump very long, maybe 2 mins, and while I collected about 1.5 oz from the breast I was pumping, I could see I had a fair amount in the collector. I added it to the bottle of the freshly pumped milk and could you believe I gathered about 1.5 oz as well. THAT IS INSANE?! All this time my liquid gold has been going to waste!

If you aren’t a fan of pumping, I strongly suggest you get this to help save as much milk as possible. Same goes for breastfeeding (especially if baby has a strong latch… who knows how much milk you’ll collect)

I have not been paid by the company whatsoever to blog about their product. This is just me sharing the oh-so-awesomeness of this liquid gold saver. Do you have a collector?

    Yet another issue is that video games can be serious in nature with the principal focus on understanding rather than entertainment. Although, there is an entertainment aspect to keep your kids engaged, each and every game is often designed to work towards a specific expertise or course, such as numbers or scientific disciplines. Thanks for your publication.
