Breast milk is often referred to as “liquid gold” – and it’s clear why! Each and every drop is rich with the goodness your little one needs to thrive. What’s even more amazing is that your breasts are intuitive to your baby’s needs, constantly changing the make-up of your milk to suit bub’s developmental stage and helping to protect them from any lingering illnesses.
So why let something so incredible go to waste in nursing pads? You can literally build your breast milk stash with the extra milk that leaks during feeding and throughout the day. Thankfully, Haakaa has a wide range of multi-award-winning milk-saving inventions to help!
And the best part? It takes ZERO extra effort to build your stash with these top tips, ideal for busy mums who just don’t have the time to be stuck on the couch expressing!
1. Start early!
Colostrum (early milk) is incredibly nutrient-dense, and many women are able to express a few drops at a time starting from their final weeks of pregnancy (with medical clearance). Up until now, the only option for antenatal expressing has been into single-use plastic syringes. But get ready for a REVOLUTION! Haakaa’s NEW Silicone Colostrum Collector has completely changed the game – made of 100% medical grade silicone, it creates a vacuum effect to suction droplets straight off your nipple. It won’t leach chemicals, is safe to freeze and heat, and can be reused over and over again!
2. Bye-bye to breast pads!
If you’ve ever breastfed, you’re probably familiar with breast pads. They sit in your bra during the day to catch leakages and prevent awkward milk stains. Many mums have no idea how much they leak because it’s all efficiently soaked up… but you may be pleasantly surprised at how much you can save if you swap out the breast pads for a pair of Haakaa’s latest innovations – the Ladybug Silicone Milk Collectors! These little beauties are made with super soft 100% silicone and use light suction to attach to your breasts. They sit discreetly in your bra, catching any leakage as you feed your little one or carry on with your day. They’re seriously so comfy, mamas often say they forget they’re wearing them!
