Milkies Milk Savers

Milk Savers: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

Mother's milk is often referred to as liquid gold, and for good reason. It's not like mommies can stop by the McDonald's drive-through and pick up a couple of bottles on a whim. Women who don't come by the boob juice easily may cringe every time they "let down" and release the coveted liquid without trapping it — an occurrence that happens frequently. While mom breastfeeds her child on one side, the other breast may leak and soil a nursing pad, leaving the drips undrinkable. Milkies came up with a pouch crafted to catch the breastmilk to keep the good stuff from going to waste.

Instead of slipping a typical nursing pad into a bra, breastfeeding mothers can use a Milk Saver ($26) to catch the juice so they can store it for future use. Would you give it a try?

I would have loved this while I was breastfeeding. I used to hold a cup up to my boob while it was leaking. Uncomfortable but I didn't want to waste any.

I'm curious about this product, maybe I'll give it a whirl when my new baby is born and then post a review.

As a mom who had to resort to pumping with boy babies these would have been nice. The second time was even more stressful as I knew how hard it was maintain my supply by pumping alone. If a drop fell to the floor or he didn't finish a bottle I was so stressed as I knew it was going to run out.

For the big letdowns (usually the first two feedings in the morning) I simply put a small tupperware against me to catch the milk. It's easy to do when you're using a pillow; I don't think I tried this when I was holding the baby.

Very practical if you have problems breast feeding. Even if you don't, you can always have some spare milk for the day, just in case baby is hungrier than usual or something.

It's a good idea but it looks really uncomfortable.

This is FUNNY!!! Those things just make me want to laugh. I know they are practical and serve a very good purpose, but they have got to leak.
