Milkies milk savers.

Has anybody used them before? I'm putting together a nursing gift basket for my cousins baby shower. It's her first and she hopes to breastfeed. I leaked like crazy when my milk came in. Are these helpful or just nice in theory?

I'm also including:
A fleece tie blanket for tummy time
Coconut oil
Reusable nursing pads
So That's What They're For and The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding
A water bottle with a straw
Some easy snacks
Some sleepers for baby
A lillebaby baby carrier


Any other suggestions?

Looks like a good list. And yes to the milkies. Never came across anyone who didn't like them.

I can't think of anything else to add to that.

Awesome! I didn't even know they existed until I was past that stage.

I would add some burp rags/thin receiving blankets. I might also consider a nursing pillow if she isn't getting one already or an extra cover, and maybe a cover for when she is in public.

Yes to the Milkies, maybe add a nursing friendly baby carrier? I had a sling type one with an extra piece of fabric that served as a cover. I loved it.

I'm getting an outfit set that comes with recieving blankets. I think she already has a pillow. I'll let her decide if she wants a cover or not. Thank you for the input!

Awesome! I wish I knew about the milkies when I needed them. I wasted sooo much milk lol. The lillebaby starts at 7lbs and has a privacy hood. In order to nurse in it you just loosen the straps and lower baby down to breast level. It's a nice carrier.
