Whoever said “there is no use crying over spilt milk” was clearly a big fat liar or not an exclusive breast feeder and they deserve to be punched in the gut (I kid of course…..no punching, but maybe I nice talk’n to). I have definitely cried over spilling my milk and feel that it is completely justified! The stuff has greater value than gold!
I’d heard of Milkies before but I didn’t want to spend extra money on another product, that is, until I got closer to going back to work and realized how precious every drop of breast milk was. Milkies is an insert that slides into your nursing tank/bra to collect the milk that leaks while you’re nursing on the other side. I was noticing how absorbed my nursing pads were and was frustrated because my child could be having that instead of it being wasted and thrown in the trash.
These things are amazing! I had no idea how much milk I was wasting and now I don’t have to. They really are easy to use, comfortable, and collect up to 4 oz. that you can dump into a bottle or freezer bag.
I highly recommend Milkies for mamas who are going back to work, or have a low supply and want to make the most of every drop.
