A friend loaned me hers and I just tried it out, but it came out of my bra just as dry as it was when it went in. I wasn't expecting the vast quantity of pourable ounces that it showed in the demo video, but I was hoping at least for a couple of drops. :/

I'm just really baffled b/c I have such a huge supply that I actually have to block feed to make DS have normal poops that aren't foamy and frothy b/c of a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance. I really would have thought that the milk saver would catch a little something.

I didn't feel a letdown at all that other time I tried, but he just ate again and I had an amazingly painful letdown even before I took him out of the crib and he nursed for a lot longer and I ended up collecting about half an ounce. orngbiggrin.gif

Well, do you usually leak a lot when you let down?

 

I actually got a Milk Saver because I was such a ridiculous leaker for the first few months that nothing could contain the leaks. I usually leaked about an ounce during a feeding.

 

But if you're not a leaker--and now, nursing my 13-month-old, I'm not--then you won't have any use for the Milk Saver!
