    Snap! I totally want to try these too! I saw them a while back and they had the FUNNIEST sales video I had ever seen(the one on the Milk Saver tab on the website). But it does look like a fantastic product, and I was forever leaking out of the breast pads last time.

    I saw these when I had DD but I wasn't sure about them. Do you know anyone who has used them???

    I didn't have a huge issue with leaking past the first few weeks. I'd be curious if anyone has used this before though.

    That's cool! I've never seen those before, but always thought something like that would make sense. I HATE pumping. So much in fact that I haven't done it since my 3rd dd. My last two kiddos have never seen a bottle a single day in their life - It's so much easier just to always have them with me and feed them. ANyway, I could see using those in the beginning. That way I could put a little stored milk in the freezer just in case some sort of event happened where I had to be away from the baby for a few hours. I do have to say though, if I was using that milk on a regular basis I would be sure to mix it with other pumped milk. The milk that leaks out is Foremilk. So, that milk is much more watery in content and has less fat.

    With DD I always found the opposite side than the one she was nursing on would leak at the start. I'd have to put pressure on it to stop it. It might be good for that!

    I hear ya, pumping is a pain. DD never had a bottle but I also never had a life. I'm thinking of being a little more lenient on the bottle this time, which means more pumping. Ugh! I borrowed a pump las time so I'll need to buy one. Joy. :P

    They seem like a great idea but I passed them up last time. I'm glad I did because I didn't leak as much with DS2.

    You know, with my first I definitely needed the break, so pumping was worth it... although she wouldn't take a bottle anyway!!! But honestly, at this point, those babies are so easy to take care of, if I'm out with JUST the baby, I hardly notice that I'm doing any extra work at all. Of course, if I end up with a particularly "difficult" baby I might feel differently, LOL.

    I never minded pumping. I was so worried about going back to work that I would pump on one side while DS was nursing on the other to keep my supply high. I pumped every two hours at work and every 4 hours at home till he was 10 months and I started to dry up .

    Pretty much felt like a cow, but never minded it much.

    Plus DS was 5 weeks early and had a horrible time latching, so pumping was essential for us getting him nutrition.

    Now that I have a 2 year old I'm guessing new baby will be a piece of cake. LOL! It's all about what you're used to hey?
