Oh, how I wish I had known about this product years ago! I cannot count how many loads of laundry I have had to wash because of milk stained bras and shirts. Because the letdown reflex is bilateral, both breasts will simultaneously release milk. But unless feeding two children at the same time, the milk on the non-feeding side is usually wasted; absorbed into pads or clothing. But not with Milkies! It is placed on the non-feeding breast and as you feed your baby, it collects all the milk ejected. I average 30 mls/1 ounce a feed. Over the course of the day, this adds up to an extra feed that I do not have to do anything to collect. This product would be especially helpful to mothers who are unable to pump. For me, being able to set the pump aside and collect enough milk for dad to do a nightly feeding is such a relief.
Made of a soft plastic, it sits comfortably against the skin. It can be held onto the breast easily with a nursing bra, allowing your hands to remain free for feeding your baby. The plastic easily folds to a spout allowing you to simply pour the milk into a storage container or bag. The plastic case also doubles as a stand, which comes in handy when trying to set baby down after you’re done breastfeeding. It is easy to clean as it is dishwasher safe. This product is a breastfeeding must. I have already recommended this product to other breastfeeding mothers, and will continue to do so.
