Case Study | Type 1 Diabetic & Successfully Breastfeeding

Mum: Kayla

Journey: Type 1 Diabetic & told she would never breastfeed

From Kayla:

“Being a first time mum, my ultimate goal was to make it to 6 months of breastfeeding my baby. You see, I am a type 1 diabetic, and I was told by Doctors, Nurses and even friends that diabetics can’t breastfeed.. Boy, with the help of the Milkbar Breast Pump could I prove them wrong.

I met Laura, the owner of Milkbar during our stay in NICU as she was in our nursery with her son too, and while we were there with her I learnt a bit about her breast pump as we were pumping all the time!

After coming home from NICU with my son I was using another brand pump and didn’t feel like I was producing as much as I could have been so I purchased the Milkbar pump. I halved my time pumping and almost doubled my breast milk per pumping session. I went from spending 20 minutes each side on the other pump and only getting 80ml, to spending only 10 minutes on each side and getting 150ml!

I would recommend this pump for any first time mum - Thank you Milkbar breast pump!!”

“No other pump came close to what Milkbar was able to do. It was the only machine that was able to help me maintain consistent supply. This has to come down to the way the pump works. It mimics the way a baby breastfeeds, massaging the nipple to actually draw the milk out”, Laura explains.
