How and Why You Should Haakaa: Silicone Breast Pump
During my pregnancy, I searched for all the tips and tricks to maintain my breastmilk supply. In that search, I found tons of things but one item stood out and I regret not purchasing it sooner! Fast forward 3 months postpartum with a struggling milk supply I finally did what I should have done from the day I saw it online. I purchased a Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump!
What is a Haakaa?
Haakaa is a silicone manual one piece breast pump or collection cup for nursing mothers. It is designed for you to collect milk hands-free while nursing, sitting around the house, washing dishes, etc.
What is it For?
The Haakaa collects milk from your let down which is milk most moms typically leak out. What a waste of your precious milk. This method helps you to store more milk by catching a few ounces during times you typically wouldn’t. “What if I don’t experience leaking?” No problem, the Haakaa will still collect milk most of the time even if you are not a mom who experiences leaking.
How Do I Use A Haakaa?
What Are The Pros?
One Piece for easy cleaning
Easy to use
Helps to maintain milk supply
Helps to build a freezer stash
Perfect for traveling
Fits all size breast
What Are The Cons?
Measurement markings are incorrect
Once full suction weakens, be sure to watch it so it doesn’t fall off and you spill your precious milk you worked so hard for
Why Do I Need One?
The Haakaa is a great BONUS accessory to have in rotation with your normal nursing and pumping routine. This is not to replace your electric or standard manual pump as it does not fully empty the breast. By attaching it to the breast your baby isn’t nursing on at the moment you can collect milk you typically wouldn’t collect or you leak out during a let down. During your breastfeeding journey, every drop of milk is important and essential to your babies development. Since using my Haakaa I have collected an additional 12-16oz of milk a day. So I say it’s worth it!
