    Default Milkies Milk-Saver?

    Not sure where to post this...but anyone ever tried these? I was curious about them with DS as I used to leak SO MUCH, especially in the early days, on the side I wasn't nursing from. Seemed like such a waste of milk. Was thinking about getting them to have with this new little one who is due soon...Thanks ladies!

    someone gave me a pair when she was done with them; she'd get most of 4oz during a nursing that way! i never leaked much so i never tried them, but i'd sure want to save it if i had.

    My friend lent me one because my other boob would leak when I used my hand pump at school. I never used it because it was large and I didn't really leak that much. I really don't know how I could walk around with them in and not look ridiculous. I am small and have small breasts though, so having anything in there would make it noticibly different.

    After reading the other replies, I never even thought about using them when nursing lol. Then they might be worth it. Although I'm sure you could fashion something homemade much cheaper.

    I have a set, and they were useful in the early days when I was trying to nurse my fourth baby, despite his cleft, and leaked like crazy from the other side. I could fill the little cup thingie. I would never ha e used them between feedings, as yes, it looked silly, but every drop I didn't have to pump was awesome.

    Thanks, ladies! I think I might give them a try, despite the price, to use during nursing.
