One of the things that I truly look forward to as a mother is to breastfeed my little one. According to my doctor as well as the many blogs and websites that I have visited, breast milk offers the right mix of nutrients and vitamins to babies. More than that, it also has emotional benefits—it bonds you with your baby and makes him feel secure. No wonder breast milk is referred to as “liquid gold,” and not a single drop should be wasted!
But just like any mom-to-be, my main concerns are the hassles that come with breastfeeding and of course, the adequacy of my milk supply. Lucky for me and many other mom-to-be’s, Milkies have come up with innovative products that can solve all these problems. Check out the following products that I highly approve of and would definitely recommend having:
Milkies Milk Trays
What I truly love and adore about these trays is that it allows us to carry breast milk anywhere we go. Just simply pour the breast milk into these trays and freeze them. If you plan to travel, you can just place the frozen breast milk stick into a bottle and allow it to thaw while you are on the road!
BONUS TIP: when your little one is teething, you can have him or her nibble on a stick to soothe their sore gums.
Milkies Milk Saver
Just like the tray, this handy little container allows moms to collect every single drop of their liquid gold. It’s as easy as placing it under your bra cup and let every single drip and drop get collected. Nursing? Place one of the milk savers on the non-nursing side, so it collects while you breastfeed! Once you’re done, simply pour the collected milk onto a tray or storage bag.
Milkies Breast Milk Storage Bags
Once you start breastfeeding, you’re going to end up with extra supplies (or wish to stock up some) at one point or another. With the Milkies storage bags, you don’t have to worry about sterilizing or BPA. Each bag is ready to use (pre-sterilized) and made with the highest quality food grade plastic (BPA-Free). Also, each bag has reinforced sides to prevent breakage and double zipper closure to prevent milk from leaking out.
BONUS TIP: Don’t have an extra freezer to store your milk? Consider getting the Milkies Freeze – it can b used with any storage bag, easily disassembles, has a first in and first out system (so old milk gets used first), and prevents contamination!
Milkies Nipple Nurture Balm
Cracked and sore nipples are some of the complications breastfeeding mothers may also encounter. Well, this balm can help soothe and heal your nipples. And don’t worry, they are proven safe for both the mom and the baby!
Milkies Nursing Blend Supplement
This supplement contains herbs that can boost milk production along with a few vitamins and minerals to help us stay healthy while breastfeeding. Because at the end of the day, it is tiring (if not energy sucking –pun intended) to produce, release or even pump milk.
Recommended intake is 3 capsules a day. If taking pills or tablets isn’t your thing, then I highly suggest giving the tea version a try.
Milkies Nursing Time Milk Tea
As I have mentioned above, if you’re not a fan of taking capsules or tablets this is another option that you can try to boost your milk supply. The tea contains blessed thistle and fennel seed, both of which have been scientifically proven to improve milk supply.
Milkies Nursing Pad
While we all know we shouldn’t waste a single drop, there comes a time where every momma’s got to run some errands. When collecting milk isn’t an option (with the milk-saver), and you simply need to prevent milk from saturating through your shirt — this nursing pad will help keep you dry and comfortable. It is reusable as well as washer and dryer friendly!
BabyIt Perineal Massage and Postpartum Recovery Gel
This pH-balanced and preservative-free gel is specially formulated for postpartum massages (yes, our lady bit down there deserves the extra care!). It helps soothe the stretched out, inflamed or newly stitched-up area down there.
