When you're lactating, it's completely normal to leak milk.  Most moms notice it while nursing or pumping on just one side.  There are many different types of breast pads you can use that absorb the milk so you don't end up covered in breastmilk. I doubt I'm the only one right now thinking thank goodness for breast pads because if we didn't have them available, I can imagine the heaps and piles of laundry.  I've forgotten to wear them before and it's not that fun... overnight, especially.  But during the day, there's a way to collect every drop of milk that leaks! Maybe you already know about the Milkies Milk-Saver, because it is the #1 Breastmilk Collector out there!
You don't have to waste your breastmilk by using the Milkies Milk-Saver!  I'm going to share how exactly it works, all about the changes in the design over the years and my experience using it!


I was sent the Milkies Milk-Saver to help facilitate this review.
The packaging is 100% recycled paperboard and it has an image of a lady using the Milk-Saver with the slogan, "Save Every Drop."

Milkies Milk-Saver Details:

∙ Made in the USA of a durable silicone, free of BPA or phyhalates.
∙ Laboratory tested to ensure it is 100% safe from chemical leaching. 
∙ Reusable and environmentally friendly- reducing waste of disposable breast pads.

∙ When you are no longer in need of the Milkies Milk-Saver, you can gift it to a friend or recycle!

You can go to Recycle Nation and put in the keyword silicone and your zip code to view some locations near you that recycle silicone.
It comes with a storage case that protects the Milk-Saver when not in use.  The storage case is also a stand for holding the Milk-Saver, which is super handy so you can get a breastmilk storage bag prepared or directly pour into a bottle or sippy cup.  
4 years ago, I reviewed the Milk-Saver and I honestly wasn't 100% satisfied.  I had it spill all over me a few times and about cried.  Have you seen the meme below?  It is soooooo true!!!
Feel free to read my previous Milkies Milk-Saver review HERE. I still loved having the Milk-Saver and used it ALL THE TIME to slowly build a stash of milk. Fairhaven Health, the company behind the Milkies Milk-Saver listened to the concerns moms had and they made some fantastic improvements!  The image below shows what the original Milkies Milk-Saver looks like compared to the new version.  The shape has slimmed down so it is less of an oval and more narrow/pocket shaped.  The old version had a removable plastic rectangle piece that went inside the product, with a lip that the silicone slipped over and help the Milk-Saver keep opened... you could attach a breastmilk storage bag onto this, which was very cool but was a big learning curve.  With the new version, you can more freely move about.
The New & Improved Milkies Milk-Saver has a special feature that prevents breastmilk from spilling out of the top.  The protective lid blocks milk from pouring out when leaning forward. This lid is plastic and has a small handle to lift out of the Milk-Saver, with two support shafts to help keep the lid stationed. Here is a GIF showing how it settles in, creating a seal. 
The Milkies Milk-Saver is great for moms that are tired of throwing away breastmilk soaked breast pads and want to save the milk they leak during the day.  If you are struggling building up a freezer stash, the Milk-Saver can help!  It is super simple to use, barely noticeable while you wear it and cleans up quickly. I also love it because it is a beneficial breastfeeding aid that can further reduce your carbon footprint!  There is NO OTHER PRODUCT like this on the market, it's truly one of a kind and I love it!
You can buy the Milkies Milk-Saver on Amazon or directly from Fairhaven Health!

What's my favorite thing about the Milkies Milk-Saver?
I love when moms have options to help them feel successful in their breastfeeding journey!  The Milkies Milk-Saver can build confidence that you are more able to provide for baby thanks to the extra ounces you'd be otherwise tossing away.
Is there anything I'd change?
I love all the changes that were implemented over the last few years and at this time, I'm pleased to report that I am completely satisfied!  I do recommend the Milkies Milk-Saver to everyone, but no more having to tell them to be careful how they move.
I give the Milkies Milk-Saver a 10/10!
