1 Bump

OMG this is the best thing I've come across so far....

My Milkies (mymilkies.com)......I always had trouble breastfeeding my DD bc I would leak like crazy on the other side that she wasn't feeding on. AHH! so frustrating. I found these.

Anyways...Anyone else use them? What do you think?

I"M DEFINITELY GETTING ONE!! or two hehe

  • Just be careful in using them. Stopping the flow of milk can cause plugged ducts and mastitis, so I wouldn't use them too often.. I did not leak nearly half as much with my second, either, so there's hope lol.

  • I would just stick a burp cloth in my bra on the opposite side I was feeding on. It didn't save the milk, but it kept me from getting soaked. I'm not sure if I would have liked the milk to be saved. I produced enough, so I didn't need what leaked out. I'd rather make sure that my supply of what the baby is actually eating at the breast is enough without having to worry about what came out from leaking. I wouldn't think wearing that all the time would be a good idea. Your boobs wouldn't be able to breath at all, which would be a problem. I

  • I must have been thinking about lilly padz.

    Anyway, those do look great! I leaked so much I could have fed another baby from just the drippings on teh other side the first time around lol. Good luck, I know you can do this! :D
