Giveaway: Milkies Milk Saver

Congrats to Amy V. Check your inbox for instructions on claiming your prize.
Breastfeeding is a topic that is so very close to my heart. I have three boys and a newborn girl that have all been breastfeed within 5 minutes of birth and then for the next year of their lives. While some women have issues that prevent them from nursing, almost all mothers are encouraged to at least give it a try.

Study after study shows that there is not a single product made in a lab that comes close to incredible value of nursing your baby. One really important aspect of breastmilk that you will never find in a can of formula is the presence of antibodies. When a woman is around a virus or germ, she develops the antibodies that stay in her system. If that same virus later affects the baby, your milk will provide the baby with the antibodies to fight the infection and help them to fight the bug right from the start.

As with everything pregnancy and newborn related, there are some mild drawbacks – mostly centered on discomfort and embarrassment. One of those drawbacks is leakage. For many nursing moms, leakage is something that happens while they are actively nursing their child. This is how it works: You start nursing baby on the left side and get the “let down” of milk, but lo and behold both breasts let down and now you have a wet circle on the right breast. Not only is this inconvenient, uncomfortable and embarrassing, it’s also a waste when you really think about it. That’s where the Milkies Milk Saver comes into play!

About the Milkies Milk Saver:

“Our patented design allows you to breastfeed anywhere without worrying about embarrassing leaks or uncomfortable nursing pads. Slim and portable, no one will even know you are wearing it. Best of all — it collects your leaking breast milk when you nurse, allowing you to store extra breast milk effortlessly.

The milk-saver is easy to use; simply slip into your bra-cup on the non-nursing side before you breastfeed. The milk-saver collects the breast milk that is leaked out when your milk lets down. You can store this milk and save it for any time its needed.

Breastfeeding is something to be proud of. The milk-saver makes it easy. The patented slim design makes the milk-saver nearly imperceptible when worn. A stylish and durable case keeps your milk-saver safe and clean when you’re on the go.
At Milkies, we care about the safety of the materials that make up our products. The Milk-Saver has been rigorously tested to ensure zero chemical leaching and contains no BPA or phthalates.

As an environmentally conscious company, we give breastfeeding moms an alternative to disposable products. The Milk-Saver has exceeded all expectations for functionality and simplicity. It has received accolades from lactation specialists, pediatricians, and breastfeeding moms the world over.

The Milk-Saver makes the perfect baby shower/new mom gift. Or get one for yourself.

Also the Milkies Milk Saver is a USDA allowable cost at WIC clinic. Email helen@mymilkies.com for more information.

Here’s What I think about it:

My very first thought about this product was whether or not it would be noticeable to those around me and would it be comfortable. I was very pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to slip into my nursing bra and how I didn’t even notice it once it was in place.

Early on in the process of breastfeeding, you experience this stage of leakage that is uncontrollable. While your body is trying to figure out just how much milk is needed, it tends to overproduce, which results in what is called engorgement. The Milkies allow you save that leakage or at least collect it, so that it doesn’t run down the front of your shirt. This product really comes in handy when you get to the “rice cereal stage” because one feeding can produce enough milk to mix in with the rice cereal – which is just perfect!
