Great in Theory
I’ve used the silicone breast pump & storage bags for 4 months now and what I can say is that they’re great in theory, but there’s also a few things that other buyers would need to take note of.
1) The Breast Pump. I have a love-hate relationship with this thing. It’s excellent to catch letdown milk when you’re feeding/pumping from the other breast. But with its size and shape, any little motion to upset it for even a fraction of a second (wriggly, kicking baby or an accidental elbow nudge) would make it lose its suction and send spilt milk all over your top. I’ve had to learn to let go of these little heartbreaks but would love if they could find a way to make this happen less often (tried their stronger suction mode — not more effective yet more painful). ALSO this bundle doesn’t come with the cap/stopper which I think is silly because my pregnant brain just didn’t realise the pump didn’t come with any cover or stopper and I had to order it in another separate package later on.
2. Reusable Storage Bags. For all intents and purposes, these are great. However, it is quite hard & fiddly to pull off the sliding grey seal entirely (which you have to do in order to be able to pour out the contents from the edge) without shaking the bags and causing spillage. To avoid spilling too much milk, I just fill these bags half full.
