MelanatedMama Product Review: Haakaa 90ml silicone breast pump breastfeeding manual breast pump BPA free.
I'm in a few breastfeeding groups on Facebook groups on Facebook. For weeks this product kept popping up as the newest must have for breastfeeding moms. So, finally I decided to give it a try.
Purpose: the purpose of this product is to catch the milk from the letdown from the opposite breast not being used during nursing or pumping.
How does it work?
The design is simple and user friendly. Position the Haakaa on the entire nipple and breast and create a suction that's comfortable. Wait for the let down and watch the milk drip into the Haakaa.
I used this while nursing my son. It was quite the workout, it took a few tries to get the perfect suction and to distract my son. But once we were settled the experience was pretty cool! While I nursed the Haakaa caught 2.5 oz of milk. Im interested in how much milk It will catch when I'm pumping on one side. I hate pumping both breasts at one time so this product makes sense for me especially with encouraging a let down.
If I were to give this grade I would give it a B+. It takes some getting use to and the suction isn't a strong a one. It requires frequent readjustments. If you're a mama that has an over flow, and produces a lot of milk this product would be great for you.
Would I recommend this product?
