So I used this for weeks after my baby had jaundice initially and we had to bottle feed her 20 ml expressed milk after breast feeding, and I didnt have a breast pump. It worked perfectly I was able to express up to 30 ml with each feed, sometimes even 40. I have know bought a breast pump because you can only use the hakaa when feeding, but instead of douple pumping I use breast pump on one side and hakaa on the other because hakaa most of the time expresses just as much as breast pump. I would highly recommend this especially if you want to hold off in buying a pump to see first what your breast feeding circumstances are and what you need.
Absolutely love my Hakaa. I was sceptical and hesitated for a long time to purchase, but it really is amazing. It catches so much breastmilk, that my husband had the opportunity to feed our baby. I highly recommend and wish I got it with my 1st pregnancy.
I was very skeptical when told about this pump but I had so many issues with blocked ducts and lumps from over supply of milk that i was willing to try anything. Rather than electric breast pump that stimulates more milk production this helped drain some from the other breast while feeding, without overly increasing supply. I get about 50-100ml off during each feed to freeze for later. Since using this system no more lumps
I used this a few times and after each use my breasts were sore and tender. The following day I would notice blocked ducts and had to try to massage them out. I can see how this would be a great time saver for some however it just wasn’t for me!
The Haakaa pump was recommended by a mid wife in hospital, to take the edge off the feeling of fullness. It has been easy to use and easy to clean.
