Throughout my first breastfeeding experience, I dealt with clogged ducts and mastitis constantly, so I was extremely surprised this time around, after having my daughter, to be leaking milk almost constantly- especially from my right breast.
When I saw the Milkies Milk Saver On-The-Go, I saw a product that could help me save the milk that I was literally pouring into breast pads on a daily basis. I want to have a small freezer supply for my daughter, but should not pump due to a history of significant oversupply.
The Milk Saver On-The-Go is a hard plastic breast shell that is made up of two halves that snap together. The shells are contoured to fit the form of the breast and sit in a bra discreetly (for me, they are invisible even in an unlined bra). At the top of the shell is a pour spout that allows you to empty without taking it apart and potentially making a mess while trying to pour the saved milk into another container. This is amazing for when I’m out and about- a quick, no-fuss transfer and the shell pops right back in my bra. They’re also extremely comfortable; it’s easy to forget I’m even wearing them!
While trying the Milkies Milk Saver On-The-Go, I have been able to do all my normal activities without much leakage/spillage- including bending over, and nursing. I’m able to get about an ounce per hour while wearing these around, and get even more when wearing them during a letdown. Thanks to this product, I’m able to have that small stash in the freezer for my daughter when I need a little time away!
When you’re done wearing them, the halves pop apart for easy cleaning. Just make sure they are snapped back together exactly straight- otherwise they can leak due to the curves not sitting together correctly!
