Darlin’ Deals Review & Giveaway ~ Fairhaven Health Nursing products!

Disclaimer: I received complimentary Fairhaven Health nursing products to review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you have ever been a breastfeeding mother you know just how precious your milk is. Every drop of that liquid gold should carefully stored for bottle feedings when its necessary for you to be away from your child. Sometimes you are so busy caring for and feeding your baby that it becomes difficult to find time to pump milk for storage. Furthermore, its crucial to store breastmilk in a way that will keep it fresh for future use and organized so you ensure your baby gets milk that hasn’t expired.

Fairhaven Health keeps both of these issues in mind by carrying a line of products called Milkies. I was sent 2 Milkies products to use in conjuction with nursing my daughter – the Freeze breastmilk storage system and the Milk-Saver. This was my first experience with these products and I was eager to see how they worked.

The Freeze system is a plastic upright container intended to be placed in a freezer and used to organized expressed breastmilk placed in storage bags. There is a metal tray at the top to place each fresh bag on so that it freezes flat, then you slide the bag in through the top opening and it falls down to the bottom of the Freeze storage unit conveniently keeping the bags in order so that you pull out the bottom bag first which has been in the storage system the longest. This was an amazing product, when I breastfed my first child I stored my bags of breastmilk in a food storage container in the freezer and it was such a chore sorting through all of them to find the correct bag to feed my baby based on the dates written on them.

The other product I received, the Milk-Saver, was a unique product that I’d never seen or heard of in all my years of parenting. Its a soft silicone type cup that you place inside your bra while you are nursing your baby. It goes on the breast that is not being used to feed your child and it collects any milk that drips while you nurse on the opposite side. I was skeptical about this product because I wasn’t sure just how useful it would be – I thought, how much milk naturally could leak without using a pump? Well the answer is A LOT! I used this for a few days while feeding my daughter and I was surprised to easily collect over 2 ounces each day from all my feedings combined! That’s a lot of milk that would have otherwise been wasted.

I highly recommend these products if you are nursing or know anybody who is, they are both high quality products that can make your experience with breastfeeding much easier!
