I ended up getting Milkies Milk Savers instead of a Haakaa. I read about people having problems with suction or baby kicking it off. This is the same idea, about collecting let down, but sticks in your bra. It doesn't have the "suction" part of it, but seemed like less of a hassle to me.
Babe isn't here yet, so we will see how it works 🤞
It’s basically a silicone cup that catches the letdown. You wear it only while nursing then pour the milk into a bottle when done to store. link on amazon
Also breast milk stays good for a while at room temperature so long as it hasn’t been contaminated
I've actually been able to collect a bottle's worth (4-5 ounces) over the course of the day using a Milk-Saver
I pump when my LO falls asleep after only one boob. He's currently going through a growth spurt so he's been eating every two hours so I don't have much time to get a good pump in, but when I get him back on the Baby Whisperer EASY schedule, it'll be easier to find time to pump during the day.
Are you going to be home with baby? If so, don’t worry about pumping daily because you might induce an over supply. As someone else said, the hakaa can catch let down from the opposite side (milk that might just leak anyway). I also like the Milkies Milk Saver to collect let down. I store the collected milk into 1 ounce sticks using the milk tray.
This is it. It goes inside your bra and you don’t have to pump anything.
Milk Saver! ([link]) These are great for catching milk that leaks from the other side as your baby nurses. I was getting 1-3 oz per feeding at one point.
I waited until after I got home to get a nursing bra...I ended up a cup size larger once milk came in.
I used a Boppy for BF and still use it to bottle feed. Bring it to the hospital. I spent the first day with pillows all around me...the Boppy worked so much better once I remembered it was in the car.
I BF for 8 weeks until I went back to work. I now exclusively pump for the most part with a Spedtra S2. If you ever go that route, I would order an extra set of flanges. My insurance company supplied extra tubing for my S2, but not the flanges. This ([link]) is what I bought and they work just as well as the ones by Spectra.
Also try the Milk Saver, it is easier to tuck into your shirt than the let down catcher.
They make a bag that will somehow attatch to the nipple so you can save that milk. I found them in Amazon.
