Awhile back I mentioned that we bought Milkies. I didn’t realize that I was still putting off a review until someone mentioned them in a comment on another blog lol.
Obviously I love the idea of them. Like most nursing mothers I can’t stand wasting milk. These things sounded great. I couldn’t wait to try it out.
So we bought one and I pulled it out to look at it… Its a little awkward/bulky, but its supposed to hold milk so I can get past that lol. There is no way it can be used discretely like it says though. People will know you’re wearing the thing. So any idea of me wearing it out flew out the window, but at home… I can store up some milk. Great.
Then I finally got to try it… I didn’t have anything to connect the milk bags with so I decided to use it without one since its supposed to work either way. Things were going great… and then several ounces of milk (I was almost to the point of taking it out and storing the milk) exploded all down my shirt. I about cried lol. I cleaned everything up and tried again, figuring I’d done something wrong… but it wouldn’t collect at all after that, not sure why. Nothing looks wrong with it.
I bought rubber bands so I could try it w/ the bags, but honestly I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I started to one day and got distracted. I’m hoping that ends up working out and makes the thing worth the purchase. Like I said, I like the idea… I want it to work lol.
