I have a newborn and a preschooler at home. Between the feedings and scheduled pumping sessions. I occasionally still get full and start to leak some milk. This pump comes handy when I have to cook or clean or do any domestic chores. I am able to collect the milk that I would have otherwise lost. This pump has good suction and it stays put until its full. Please be careful to remove it when its full - I once lost a full pump while working in kitchen as it became too heavy to stay put. My only negative feedback is related to the cover. The lid does not provide a seal, if you accidentally topple the pump with the lid on, milk will fall. Therefore I immediately transfer the milk out of it and avoid storing it in the pump.
Love LaVie! I am a lactation consultant and love to recommend these products to my mommies!
So far I’ve been using this product for a little under a week and I’ve been able to save 1-3 oz each time I’ve used it to catch let down on the opposite side that I am nursing on. It’s super easy to use but it’s initial suction is strong so if you haven’t breastfed before, that is something you will get used to. I am excited to use this product to build up a freezer stash!
Best purchase I’ve made! Helped me so much relieve engorgement when my milk came in and makes pumping so much less painful. Now I can’t imagine ever pumping without
Helpful with making sure you don’t loss any milk
