Milkies?

Has anyone ever used Milkies? They are breast pads that catch the leakage so that you can save it instead of soaking it up and rinsing it down the sink. Just wondering if they're worth the investment.

Haha, no. I'm ok with throwing it away in my disposable breast pads. But I make a ton of milk and could easily pump about twice what I needed when I was a working mom, so "wasting" the leaked milk was never anything to worry about for me.

That's where I'm at, too. It makes sense at first when production is a little low, but I don't introduce bottles until it's time to go back to work and by then production isn't an issue.

I am not sure that is a good idea...lots of contamination from bacteria and then sitting in a bag at body temp for a while.  I would not recommend that (nurse and lactation consultant)

Never did. I don't leak enough to need them. My pump response is crap.

I thought about it, to wear while I nursed on one side. My left always has a let down when I nurse on my right. I wouldn't wear it any other time though.

That was my first thought, too, but I seen a couple of lactation consultants suggest them.

LOL! I've heard about them but I never used them.

I never needed those. I fortunately have never been a leaker :) Oh, weirdly, most of my leaking happened when my first baby was around 10-11 months old. It lasted a couple weeks too. Not sure what was up with that.

Yep, I bought one and it was awesome!  I would leak up to two ounces at a single feeding so it was totally worth it for me
