Breastfeeding Must Have #4

This is something I wish I had known about when I was breastfeeding Grayson. It collects the milk you leak from the boob that isn't feeding the baby. This is especially handy for that first feeding of the day when leakage tends to be most.

I don't know about you, but I work HARD to store up a supply of breastmilk in the freezer for the times I can't be with my baby. So this little invention is great because you don't have to waste a single, precious drop. I've been using it for the first morning feeding when I'm particularly engorged. Right now I'm collecting about a 1/2 ounce per use. And I imagine this will only keep going up and envision that as S gets older and eats more, I'll be collecting a couple of ounces each time I use it. This is my new fav by far.

It's called the Milk Saver by Milkies. You can read more about it here and can buy it here or here.

Genius! Good to know for the next baby. Wish I had known about this with my first baby.
