1/31/2012 Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine mom reviewer loves the Milk-Saver!

I must say I am absolutely in love! I’ve been able to put approximately two additional ounces of breast milk in the freezer daily which is huge considering I generally pump a little under three ounces at each sitting... Read more

New Mom/Blogger Shares her Milkies Experience- She loved it!


5/10/2011 The Stir -Breastfeeding Moms Number One Problem Solved?

Any breastfeeding mom knows that wasting even the smallest drop of breast milk can result in a flood of tears (ours, not the baby's). Yes, we breastfeeding moms are quite accustomed to crying over spilled milk. There is no shame in that! Whether you're pumping or nursing, every ounce is precious. Still, in the first few months of nursing, most of us have come to accept that with letdown comes some leakage on the other side. The milk that comes out of the other breast is usually either the reason we have embarrassing wet spots on our shirt or the reason we have to throw out our milk pad.

Now, there is a new product on the market -- The Milkies Milk Saver -- that collects the leaked breast milk and allows moms to store it for later use. But is it too good to be true?

The product works discreetly and can be slipped into the bra without being detected. When the nursing mom leaks, the milk is stored in its reservoir rather than wasted into a pad or into the bra. The concept is amazing.

 I love breastfeeding but I hate to pump.  I am sure most breastfeeding mama's feel this way.  When I was given the opportunity to review the Milk-Saver by Milkies I was so excited! ( read the rest of her blog post...

The Milk-Saver was recently featured on Well Read Reviews... this user became an improptu reviewer and loved the simple and effective design. Read about her experience in her awesome blog...

Last week I was at Bosom Buddies, a weekly support group for breastfeeding mothers courtesy of Karen Bell, CLC of Breast is Best Lactation Services. We were discussing new products on the market that may be popular with Moms now.

That reminded me of when I saw the product Milkies while I was pregnant. My best friend (and former breastfeeder) Blair, showed them to me and I thought they were genius! Saving milk — ah hah! (read more in her blog...

Anticipating the birth of my first baby boy, Colton, was joyous. I loved being pregnant and labor was great.

OMG! Breastfeeding mom saves 70 ounces of milk in 1 month with a Milk-Saver

So, I've had my milk-saver for a little over a month now and I wanted to give one last milk update.  In one month's time, I collected nearly 70 ounces of milk! I've had to start a second ziplock bag full of milk-cubes! I want to buy these for all my breast-feeding mommy friends!


Melanie, IBCLC; Chicago, IL

Thanks for the solution to a big problem we encounter often. We keep these in the office, and when a mom comes in with a wet shirt or dripping towel we suggest a Milk-Saver—problem solved! My clients tell me the Milk-Saver has actually saved them money. Nursing pads are expensive! I recommend these all the time. I had a client with inverted nipples having thrush problems. She leaked constantly and had to wear nursing pads, creating a moist environment making her thrush even worse. She started wearing a Milk-Saver on each side to collect the leaking milk and her thrush completely cleared up. She was able to stop using topical Nystatin within two days and the thrush was completely resolved by day three. Thanks for the great product, I will share this story at our next conference."

Feb. 18 2010 "One Little Word She Knew" review has posted!

The Milk Saver is another great product for nursing moms! (If you're new to my blog, check out my review yesterday too.) It collects breastmilk from the non-nursing side while you feed your baby. Slip it into your bra before you nurse and as your milk lets down, the Milk Saver collects it. It saves milk that would otherwise just drip into a nursing pad and go to waste!

Milk Saver is BPA and phthalate free and is independently tested to ensure zero leaching. Its also recyclable. The Milk Saver comes with a handy carrying case that also acts as a stand. It can collect up to 2.1 ounces, or more if you attach a breastmilk storage bag as shown.
The first time I tried the Milk Saver, I collected 1/2 oz from both sides together. I used it again the next morning and got 1 1/2 oz just from one side. If I used it regularly I could collect quite a bit of milk - all without having to pump. Its very easy to pour milk out of the Milk Saver and wash it out for reuse. The Milk Saver is made of a soft pliable plastic, so its comfortable to wear.

3/24/10 Just Mommies-Milkies Milksaver Review and Giveaway

After using it the first time, I was totally surprised at how much milk was collected in there!  It seemed to be about an ounce.  I couldn’t believe that I was essentially wasting that much milk on my non-nursing side when I breastfed!  I was pretty excited that I collected that much and after my daughter was done nursing...(click on the link to read the full review)


Julie, RN, IBCLC; Monroe, MI

“You were kind enough to send me a sample of the Milk-Saver, and it arrived at a time when a patient really needed it. I asked her to be my first mom to try it. She likes it and I would like to promote it in my classes and with my clients. I am very impressed with your website, and your accurate, evidence-based education page of breast milk benefits! Your video clip is also a great promotion tool for breastfeeding, one I will refer clients to. I’ve been an IBCLC for 19 years and this is one of the most efficient, mom-friendly, eco-friendly and useful products I’ve seen. Great job!”

Julie, RN, IBCLC; Monroe, MI


Theresa, Rome, GA

It’s comfortable—after a few seconds, it was hard to tell it was there. It’s also easy to use (no assembly required) and easy to clean. I like the storage case, and the fact that you can use it while breastfeeding in any position. I think it is a great product. I was very skeptical at first but now I am a believer. I have a pump but I hate using it…I prefer the passive way of collecting small amounts of milk.”

Theresa, Rome, GA


Jennifer, Orlando, FL

I have a 5-week-old whom I've been using my Milk-Saver for and I love it! I wish I'd had one with my 18 month old—I had to pump for her to make a bottle, which is time consuming and increased my milk supply more than I needed. Now I get enough milk to make one bottle per day just while feeding my baby and I don't have to use it every time I nurse. It is definitely worth purchasing for breastfeeding moms.”

Jennifer, Orlando, FL


Rhonda, Los Angeles, CA

I gave this to my daughter at her baby shower because I remembered always being wet when I fed her. I hated the mess, it was one of the reasons I didn’t breastfeed longer. I want my daughter to breastfeed her baby for one year if she chooses. She uses the Milk-Saver whenever she feeds and she loves it. I wish I would have had one 27 years ago, I would have been a more successful breastfeeding mother.”

Rhonda, Los Angeles, CA


Holly, Corpus Christie, TX

I love this product! Not only I am able to save more milk without pumping, I also reduce the amount of laundry per week. It is amazing to see how much milk would be wasted if it weren't for this product. My daily collection turns out to be at least one extra meal/feeding for my daughter. It is also easy to clean and comes with a portable case that can be used as a stand after you are done collecting. I recommend this product to all my friends who are nursing.”

Holly, Corpus Christie, TX


Amy, Modesto, CA

I am so thrilled with this product! I am nursing my fourth child and I wish I had a Milk-Saver with the three older children. As a working mother I appreciate the time and effort involved in storing breast milk. With my Milk-Saver I am able to passively collect twice the amount I was getting by just pumping! My daughter is 18 days old now and since I began using a Milk-Saver I have collected ten ounces per night with only two feedings per night! I can’t believe I wasted that much milk in a washcloth before I discovered my Milk-Saver. Thank you for such a fantastic product.”

Amy, Modesto, CA



Luanne, Texarkana, TX

I thought leaking was an inconvenience. Now I use a Milk-Saver and I actually look forward to collecting all the leaking milk just to see how much I can put up in a day. My lactation consultant told me about this product and I don’t know what I would do without it. This is what all my friends are getting at their baby showers.”

Luanne, Texarkana, TX


Maria, Crestwood, KY

"I just wanted to thank you for this amazing product. I have been able to store between four and six ounces of milk a day with this product - and the best part is, it doesn't require any extra time or effort do to so. I am continually amazed at how much milk is released during let down - precious 'liquid gold', as I call it, that would be not only wasted, but would have ended up in a soaked nursing pad (uncomfortable!) or all over my shirt (ugh!). I can't believe that sometimes I collect anywhere from .5 - 1.5 oz. per feeding. I've been using this product for one month now and I truly consider it a must-have for nursing moms, especially nursing moms who are working also, since this really helps with increasing the stored milk you can freeze for use when you go back to work. I only wish I had it 3 years ago when nursing my first daughter. I have told the lactation consultant at my children's pediatrician's office about it and am telling all of the other moms I know. Thank you again - and please feel free to use my comments in any of your marketing materials or contact me if you need any more glowing reviews. I'd go out of my way to make sure everyone heard of this awesome product!!!"

Polly, Shreveport, LA

This is my favorite baby shower gift! I didn’t know how much milk I was wasting until I started using this product. When I went back to work I had a freezer full of milk and I even gave some milk to my sister whose had a C-section (her milk didn’t come in for five days). She would have given her daughter formula if not for the Milk-Saver. Thanks for coming up with this!”
