Details

Colostrum, otherwise known as first milk, is a thicker viscosity golden fluid released before breast milk production begins. For some, it comes during their third trimester which means you may be able to express the colostrum and store it ahead in preparation for your baby's arrival.

Colostrum is regarded as ideal nourishment for a newborn. It is highly concentrated, full of good fats, protein, nutrient-dense, so a little goes a long way. You can build up a ‘stock’ and keep it in your fridge so, should you hit a curve in your breastfeeding journey, and your baby needs extra fluid or nutrition, you have the expressed colostrum that can help you bridge the gap.

Not everyone is a candidate for antenatal colostrum expressing, so always get the green light from your midwife, OB-GYN or doctor before you do it.

Colostrum can be collected in single-use, plastic syringes sometimes provided by your health provider, but they can be difficult to use one handed. The Haakaa Colostrum Collector is a set of six 100% medical-grade silicone collecting tubes that can be used to collect, store and feed colostrum, reducing the chances of cross contamination. Each comes pre-sterilised. The soft squeezable silicone works like a vacuum effect to collect droplets that can be safely stored in the fridge or freezer for later. Unlike traditional syringes, you can feed and manage your colostrum from the same container, which are portable, leakproof and reusable.

Editors notes

Antenatal expressing is beneficial for new mums to become familiar with their anatomy before breastfeeding is established.

Specifications

6x collectors holding 4ml each.

Age: great for after 37 weeks but only use if you are given the green light from your health care provider and you are a low-risk pregnancy. It should not be done by anyone at risk of premature labour. Use the collected colostrum in those first few newborn days. The collectors can then be cleaned and used for another baby, yours or someone else's.

Material: medical-grade silicone.

Non-toxic and safe for feeding newborns.

No more syringes!

These have made colostrum collection so easy! I just express straight into the tube rather than expressing into something else and drawing up.

I like the extra storage space as I was also using 1ml syringes prior and having to use multiple.
