Innovative Breastfeeding and Pumping Products from Moms Who’ve Been There

You’ve probably heard a lot about how wonderful breast milk is for your baby. And it’s all true: Breast milk is the best thing you can feed your sweet babe. But here’s a secret that experienced moms know: Breastfeeding is not easy. And pumping and storing breast milk, especially if you are a busy working mom, takes significant time and effort. Every ounce you pump is precious, and storing it requires smart, simple solutions.

It was while struggling with these challenges that mom and registered nurse Helen Anderson started Milkies, a line of breastfeeding and pumping products unlike anything else on the market. Created by moms for moms, Milkies products are clever, easy-to-use, and adaptable in a way that only products developed by real people out of a real need can be.

For example, Helen dreamed up the Milk-Saver, a smart little device that tucks into your
bra to catch any milk lost during letdown. When she was nursing her baby, Helen would leak on the other side, anywhere from one to two ounces. The lost milk was vital; this was a mom committed to pumping regularly during her 12-hour shifts as an ER nurse to make sure she always had enough supply to meet her baby’s demand. With the development of the Milk-Saver, she could capture all of that liquid gold and store it for future use (plus prevent stains and leaky spots on her clothes).

Another innovative Milkies product are the Milk Trays, created by nursing mom and firefighter Tobi Porter. She found storing pumped breast milk in conventional storage bags meant some of her hard-earned milk would be wasted when too much was thawed and then had to be tossed. With Milk Trays, covered trays designed to easily store and thaw breast milk in one-ounce “milk sticks” servings, she developed a simple way to eliminate that waste. The milk sticks fit into every type of bottle, the trays are reusable and less expensive than breast milk storage bags, and there’s no BPA, dyes, or other scary components used in the manufacturing of the trays.


Breastfeeding—and especially pumping—is a labor of love, and you’re not alone if you’re looking for ways to make it work better for you. From milk-boosting teas and supplements to breast pads to breast milk storage, Milkies offers a variety of award-winning, eco-friendly, baby-safe products developed by moms to make nursing moms’ lives easier and to help them reach their breastfeeding goals.
