I LOVE this product, I came across this product out of desperation ... one night I was sat there with my two week old baby holding a bottle under one breast to catch the uncontrollable flow (after worrying for two weeks that there was nothing there !) and supporting my baby with my other arm. I was struggling, my baby started to fidget and I dropped the bottle and yes there is use crying over spilt milk that stuff is pure gold to expressing/breast feeding mums. So I googled ... found this product and it arrived two days later. Absolute game changer ? Health visitor advised to top up milk storage and I’ve actually got a nice little collection from these bad boys. They are a must ! Also can walk around the supermarket while the babies asleep without anyone knowing ... fab oh and also it pours out of a small gap at the top, pretty much leak proof !
These are amazing for collecting your letdown. I used these on the opposite side to the one I had was feeding from. Just pop in your bra and they will do all the work. Price is cheap, but they are a little bulky I found inside your bra.
Every night when I was feeding, the other boob would let down & I'd be watching that precious milk dissipate into my breast pad. This little number was perfect for catching that milk & put straight into a bottle for another feed later on. I caught 30ml+ sometimes which is a whole feed during the newborn stage!
These are great to just place in your bra when feeding off the other breast. They catch a fair amount of let down and are really easy to use. I do find them slightly difficult not to spill any when taking them off but for the price I really like them. They also allow your nipples a bit of breathing space between feeds which is good for tender nipples.
These are amazing and by far the best thing i have ever bought. Amazing for two reasons, I can collect milk, and I don't have to get changed after every feed. In the beginning I could collect 150-200ml a feed, just collecting the milk from the opposite breast to the one I fed from. This allowed me to build up a really good freezer store, which was so helpful whilst I spent 12 weeks on and off in hospital. Eight months in I get around 300ml a day but this is enough for the days when I am at work (I returned at 4 months). They also stop me needing to get changed after Every feed due to the amount of milk that comes off the other side being too much for any breast pads. The only thing that would improve them would be to have a little sterile travel case for them to take out and about.
These are great but if you wish to use the milk to feed regular emptying and cleaning is required. I use to leak masses so i loved these and as i exclusively expresses for twin every little helped to ensure i had enough for their next feeds. I found them well worth the money and in the long run cheaper that buying pads all the time.
Milk saver!! I have an over supply of milk and was drenched while feeding, now i can collect the leaking milk and freeze it for later. They are so comfortable that I forget I'm wearing them and pour milk everywhere when leaning forward. Just wish you could open the spout to pour instead of it being open all the time
I bought these after repeatedly soaking my little boy whilst breastfeeding due to strong let down. They are great to pop over the breast you are not currently feeding on to collect milk that leaks as you feed. I found that even if I didn't keep the milk it was great to use them as pads got soaked too quickly and became uncomfortable. The only issue is that sometimes I forget I've put them on as they are not really that noticeable and then I will bend over and pour the collected milk all over myself and the floor ( and sometimes the baby) rendering the collection useless!
I didn’t get on with these well at all, I found them very uncomfortable and also lost a lot of milk as if you bend over the milk spills out the top, which with a baby you’re constantly bending over, just not practical.
Wow..... I was told bout these weeks into having my son and they was just what I needed. I felt like a cow, I would leak so much from the opposite boob I was feeding on and going through so many breast pads and leaking through to my tops ect. And if he napped and I needed to feed I would leak. This was great to catch the milk so I wouldn’t have embarrassing moment but also to capture the milk so I could save it put it into a bottle and keep it for later or freeze. I used them all the time.
Only down fall is the hole on the top and that it’s not capped. After feeding son I would lay him down or go to change his nappy and when there full and you bend forward the milk would obviously come out and go every where which is one messy and annoying but 2 upsetting as it a waste and couldn’t be saved. I will be 100% using these again for the next arrivial.
