When I first started my journey in breastfeeding, I was always leaking during my let-down. Luckily, I had some fantastic nursing pads to catch it all but I was sad that my milk was being wasted!
I recently had a friend (love her even more now!) tell me about this incredible product: A Haakaa! (http://amzn.to/2rbiJzA). It’s basically a small silicone manual breast pump that you suction onto your opposite breast while nursing and it catches all of your let-down – NO PUMPING REQUIRED. You read that right, you can collect milk completely hands-free, without pumping, and while you nurse!
The best part is that it’s not expensive so you don’t have to feel even slightly bad for trying to make your life easier.
I still love my electric breast pump for my normal pumping, but this little wonder lets you collect otherwise wasted milk and help stock your back-up supply in the freezer without any extra work.
If I can make any mom’s life easier, I will. I hope this helps you as much as it helped me!
