This is a little review on how I have found the Milkbar NZ breast pump which I have had for around three weeks now. It is totally my honest opinion and have in no way been sponsored to do this. I truely love this pump and wanted to share it with other mamas :-)
I stumbled across this pump on Facebook by chance one day. I had been borrowing a friends pump but was finding it uncomfortable, time consuming and a lot of effort for very little result. I don’t have a big supply due to a previous breast reduction (blog post to follow) but what I did have was very quickly getting less and less.
After reading about the Milkbar pump I decided to give it a go and with my supply dwindling quickly I messaged Laura on Facebook to see if I could pick one up that day! They are based in the Waikato region and although they don’t have a store, Laura very kindly let me collect it from their storage warehouse.
I actually cried all the way home from collecting the pump.
I was so sad that my supply was decreasing that this really was my last chance.
I pumped that evening and was amazed at how comfortable it felt and how it stimulated the nipple just like a baby does when feeding.
I think I managed to get around 15mls out in 20minutes...that doesn’t sound a lot but I had previously only been able to get 8-10mls with over half an hour of pumping.
