Amazing! Even at 9 months post partum

published

Purchased and used for the first time when my baby was 9 months old. Obviously breastfeeding is well established now and I don’t find I leak very much but wanting to try my baby more regularly with a bottle (which she currently won’t take) before returning to work soon.
Expressing after feeds is annoying and time consuming, so thought I’d give this a go to try and steadily build up as stash of breastmilk. Well I’ve used it twice today already, it’s so easy to just grab and pop on whilst feeding from the other side, and rinses quickly sfterwards. Very happy to easily get 30mls without any effort, I thought maybe I’d only get a dribble! Very pleased with my purchase, should easily have a bottle by the end of the day.

Purchased in September 2019 at Amazon for $20.00.

Fantastic product!

published

This is a great pump to use. It’s so easy. I can usually get a decent amount every time I use it. At first when bub was little I would use it on the side I wasn’t nursing on. Now if I pump I can still use it on the opposite side and it gets a decent amount which makes pumping quicker when needed. Well worth the purchase. Would be great for someone who wants to create a freezer stash but dislikes the idea of pumping with an electric pump. A tip I learnt was to fold the flange back and squeeze haakaa and then attach it, that way it will not fall off.

Purchased in September 2018 at Be Calm Baby for $40.00.

very good product

published

Haakaa silicone milk catcher. This product is for women with a lot of supply, but also for ladies who just need t catch that extra overflow form second breast!
I would use it while breastfeeding both of my kids - breastfeeding on one breast and HAAKAA on the other!
I love the HAAKAA with the stand and the lid!
I recommend to every single MAMA to be, if they are planning to breastfeed for long time!

Purchased in November 2016 for $29.00.

Works a dream to save milk

published

I was originally pumping but was desperate to save breast milk incase we needed it so started using a haaka on the opposite side I was breast feeding on. Wasn’t a huge fan at first but now that I have the hang of breast feeding and can rest baby on a pillow and have free hands, I can support the haaka without worrying it will fall off. I use it a few times enough and end up with enough to store for a bottle if needed (or freeze for future use).

Purchased in February 2019 for $25.00.

Convenient and so easy to use

published

I have been using the Haakaa as an alternative to my electric pump. It’s so easy to use. One thing that I’ve learnt to help the let down faster is by getting your baby to feed a small amount on the side you express then apply the Haakaa. I used it when travelling when I was full. It also goes in dishwasher!!

Purchased in June 2018.

The easiest breast pump I have ever used but I feel like if you don’t have a good let down or good supply it doesn’t work. Would still recommend to give it a go

Better than an electric pump

published

I used to use this to just catch let down, now I am using it to assist hand pumping. I had limited luck with electric pumps and hated all the cleaning.
Only concern is the local milk bank won't accept milk expressed this way as they have had a very high contamination rate. Just be careful with cleaning etc.

Love, love , love my Haakaa!

published

I am so in love with my Haakaa silicone breast pump! It suction’s to the breast and catches the let down while feeding my daughter on the other side or I have used it to relieve pressure from engorged breasts.
I love my Haakaa so much that I bought a second one.

Easy pump

published

This thing is a miracle! I just had my baby 4 days ago but noticed I was leaking some while nursing her on the other side. Just suctioned this on and continued nursing and I had caught over an ounce just in the time baby girl was nursing other side! Helps collect without having to pump, and that’s worth it for me alone!

Love this thing!

published

When I first got this, I was afraid my baby would kick it off while he was nursing. But if you have the placement right, the suction is great, so it’s really hard to get knocked off. I usually can get 2-3 Oz while using this. Just be careful when taking this off or setting it down, since this doesn’t have the stopper, it could easily be spilled. I’ve knocked mine over once, and it’s so sad when you lose a whole sessions worth! I’m much more careful now with it.

Haakaa is amazing! It seriously gets more than my medela and in half the time. Its effortless and discreet with no funny noises. I use my haakaa at work and have been for the past 9 months, being silicone it is very portable and discreet in my handbag or my back pocket.

Awesome and so easy

I put it on the opposite side I am nursing from and it catches the let down and is so easy to use. I can put it on one handed very easily, and usually get about 90 mil in ten minutes from one side! And its so easy to clean! I am in love lol

Great for engorment

published

Quick to deliver, got this product soon after my little girl was born and managed to collect so much milk that leaked out the opposite side from where I was feeding my girl.

It amazingly stayed on and almost could hand pump from the device too!

I only ended up using this for the first 2-3months. After that my breast milk regulated and I did not need it anymore. Great for first time mums wanting multiple kids maybe? Not sure about mums with their last planned child.

Can't live without this. Best purchase.

published

Don't bother buying an expensive pump unless exclusively breast feeding. Thos was one of them late night purchases at 2am and now is my most used baby product. I have collected over 7 litres of milk and havent used my Medela swing since i bought this. I buy it for all my pregnant friends and they love it too!
I dont "leak" and it still catches alot of milk. I am now 7 months post partum and only use for the first feed in the morning and catch anywhere between 40-80mls however at one stage, i was easily collecting 200mls throughout the day! Honestly buy this product :)!

So fantastic for catching let down!

published

If you have a let down on your other breast while feeding, this product is for you! I have saved litres of milk from soaking into breastpads with this producy and have been able to get a good supply of spare milk in the fridge/freezer. Easy to use and clean and not expensive for what it is. Love it!

Great simple pump.

published

This pump is easy to use and even easier to maintain. Great pump for catching all the goodness of letdown on the side you're not feeding. Love the handy suction base to prevent spillage when you put it down. Not painful to attach either- gentle on nipples which is an essential.

Questions & Answers

Rebecca S.

Rebecca S.asked

I feed my baby on both sides...how does the pump work? Do i use it on the opposite breast and then swap sides when baby swaps breats?
Also, will i still have enough milk in the 2nd breast when baby swap sides to complete for feed?

I’m trying to decide between the 100ml and the 150ml (the latter being a new addition to their range). I’m only a smaller busted woman (still just a B cup at the end of my pregnancy) but leaking and expressing colostrum just fine. Would 150ml tend to fall off the breast and just be unnecessary or do some of you wish your 100 was bigger?

Can it be used without bub feeding on the other breast?

Yes I have used it when Bub started sleeping all night. I woke up and had to express just to have a bit of Releif.
