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?

    With every little thing which appears to be building throughout this particular subject material, your viewpoints are actually very radical. Nonetheless, I appologize, but I can not give credence to your whole theory, all be it stimulating none the less. It seems to everybody that your comments are not totally justified and in simple fact you are yourself not really fully certain of your point. In any case I did take pleasure in examining it.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    In accordance with my research, after a in foreclosure home is marketed at a sale, it is common with the borrower to still have any remaining unpaid debt on the loan. There are many financial institutions who make an effort to have all charges and liens paid off by the subsequent buyer. Having said that, depending on specified programs, restrictions, and state laws there may be a number of loans that aren’t easily solved through the shift of loans. Therefore, the responsibility still remains on the client that has received his or her property in foreclosure. Thank you sharing your thinking on this web site.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    You’ll find definitely many details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I give the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly you will find questions like the one you bring up exactly where probably the most critical thing is going to be working in honest beneficial faith. I don?t know if very best practices have emerged about points like that, but I am certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I believe which you should really write alot more on this subject, it could possibly not be a taboo subject but usually men and women are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
