A great gift for every nursing mama!
by Jessica Martens | guest reviewer for The Snap Mom
I have a 5 month old nursling, and after having 3 babies, I’ve learned that I’m not an “accessory/gadget” mama. I have enough to remember and keep track of in my day, so I like to keep things simple. This is an EASY way to pump without actually having to take the time to pump. I never considered myself to be “leaky,” so I didn’t realize how much milk I actually leaked until using the Milk-Saver. I can collect a 4-6 oz bottle by the end of the day, by only using the Milk-Saver when I feed. Every drop of liquid gold counts, right?! (All my nursing mamas said, “amen!”) I pump for my freezer stash, so I use the Milk-Saver while I feed baby, and then I add the milk to what I get from pumping.
It’s made out of a soft silicone and stays right in your bra or tight fitting shirt. (And I’m a small 36B while nursing.) It’s also very discreet, you could definitely use it in public if you needed/wanted to.
IT’S EASY TO USE
You can hold baby in one arm and put the Milk-Saver in and out without being a hot mess. You can use it in whatever position you nurse baby in (I use it while feeding laying down on my side.)
IT’S EASY TO CLEAN
You just give it a quick wash in warm water and some soap and set it upside down in your drying rack to dry.
IT MAKES EXTRA MILK APPEAR
Instead of letting it go to waste in your nursing pad, it goes into a bottle to be used for later! Instead of pumping, you are free for that quick* trip to Target. (*Ha! you know you’re going to walk every aisle with a coffee in hand. Because you can. You go, girl.)
IT’S EASY TO TOTE
It comes with a small hard case and can fit easily in your purse or diaper bag.
IT’S COMFORTABLE. (Wait, wasn’t that a pro?) It’s actually so comfortable, you can forget it’s in. Which is fine, until you bend over and spill a bit of milk. It would be nice if it had a stand to rest on, or a flat bottom so you could put it down. (The benefit of getting that extra milk is so great that it’s not that much of a problem)
I will definitely buy this for every friend who plans to nurse her baby, it’s so great!
Editor’s Note: If you have an oversupply, be aware that if you leave it on after nursing, it may stimulate you and increase milk supply. You should still be able to use it successfully while nursing just be mindful of removing it afterwards.
