Junobie is THE solution for eco-conscious mamas who are keen to stop using or avoid plastic breastmilk storage bags. Junobie was founded by a mum who was sick of single use plastic and wanted a better solution for storing and transporting her liquid gold. You can find out more about how Junobie came about HERE.
Junobie milk storage bags work in exactly the same way as your traditional milk storage bags with a key difference; they can be used again and again (and again and again!). This is all thanks to the material that they are made from. Instead of plastic which can degrade quickly or only be used a couple of times, Junobie Breastmilk Storage Bags are made from food grade silicone and free from BPA, BPS, PVC, Latex, and Phthalates. This means they're able to stand up to regular cleaning and use (and everything else #mumlife has to throw at them!) All you need to do after use is wash, dry and you're ready to go for round two.
They most certainly are. Because nobody has got time for leaks, the slider at the top of the bags ensures an air-tight, leak proof seal at every use. You can store your bags standing up, lying flat, even upside down if you wanted to (though we're not sure that you would!) and you can be sure that you won't lose any of your precious liquid gold.
YES! Junobie milk storage bags can be labelled using a dry erase marker. You can also use permanent marker but will need a magic sponge and/or alcohol/whiteboard marker remover to remove. You can also use sticky labels though they may not stand up to regular washing.
They can! Junobie bags are designed to maximise storage in a compact way. They are both fridge and freezer safe and can be stored standing up or lying flat. They are also microwave, dishwasher and boil safe.
Junobie milk storage bags hold approximately 180ml of liquid. This allows for expansion during freezing.
Junobie milk storage bags can be washed with warm, soapy water or popped in the dishwasher. You're also able to purchase a Junobie Breastmilk Bag Brush which can squeeze into the corners and ensure the bags are fully clean before next use.
We are really excited to introduce Junobie to the Milkbar community. As a brand, we have moved away from stocking plastic breastmilk storage bags in favour of more eco-friendly, longer lasting and sustainable products and Junobie ticks all of those boxes!

There's not much more exciting than packing your hospital bag.Your hospital and how long you're staying will determine what you need to pack in your hospital bag to some extent BUT there's still a list of essentials that can make even the shortest stay that little bit more comfortable.
Am I making enough milk? It's a question most new mums have asked themselves when establishing breastfeeding for the first time.
