It looks so AWESOME! I leak a bit all day, and I don't know if it is 2 ounces. I do know that using the lilypadz is nice, but a little inconvenient, and blocking the milk isn't as comfortable as letting it leak a little if it needs (into my nursing bra's which are thick enought that no one can see but I can feel...) so this product really look like a great idea. I hate to purchase it if it doesn't work or is uncomfortable.

Are these the same as the Milkies? http://www.mymilkies.com/milksaver

I haven't tried them but I agree, they look so cool!

Exactly! I put this same thread and semi-lucid rant in Breastfeeding and LWAB. Got three responses, and I guess there is no top to this thing and it is really big. Still seems like a brilliant idea!

nak

can you link to the thread with the replies?

what do you mean there is no top?

I had been collecting leakage on the non nursing side (during feedings) using a small bottle but that requires 2 hands which I don't always have available... so I end up using a pad to catch the leaks (which can be up to 2 oz from one breast in one feeding... but usually it's 1 oz) but I HATE that I'm letting so much milk go to waste in a pad.

When I was nursing my first baby I used this to collect leakage, but sometimes I'd forget they were in my bra and I'd bend over and the milk would come out of the holes. Not fun!

I'm super interested in this product!!!

I wonder if it would be a breeding ground for thrush...
