I was asked by new moms, how I built my milk bank, so if you're reading this, let me tell you it was a team effort, my sister, husband, friends and different resources helped me with tips and here's my number one recommendation: Haakaa Silicon Pump.
I know "pump" isn't appealing, but it is more of a "milk catcher" and this is not a sponsored* - it just really changed my life!
What: Haakaa (ships internationally) - known best as a silicon breast pump
Why: Catches milk while breastfeeding on one side, instead of using a dry pad.
When: Game changer for newborn stage, use as needed or when breast are fuller during early production and for night time feedings.
Where: Use at home but I've also seen moms take it with them on the go! Just remember how long breastmilk can last in room temperature* varies a little bit with whom you ask, I used CDC guidelines.
How: Laslty, wondering how it works and how to catch it, see pictures below instagram @haakaausa
New moms, what other tips do you have to share?
