Used my Haakaa for the first time today. How much milk should I expect to get? Or will be completely different from mum to mum?

(For the record, it's so easy to use!)

It varies person to person. I couldn’t express - got hardly anything. We’re talking not covering the bottom of the bottle after 30 minutes plus. Other women will get so much they can fill a freezer and donate to a milk bank.

Completely varies - even from breast to breast! One boob gives me 3oz at a time and the other 1oz.

It has meant I haven't needed to buy a real pump though. Love mine!

I use nature bond (basically the same thing). To start I got 10-30ml each side and now (baby is 7 weeks) my record is 210ml from one breast in one session! It's great, I ditched the manual and electric and just use this now

@blueskiesbrighteyes 210 ml! 😯

I've got about 40 ml from each side so far today. Will see if DS will take a bottle tonight 🤞

I’m thinking of trying this. With my electric pump last time round I didn’t get anything but thought of trying again with this! Does it just collect let down from the other breast? As I don’t leak. I want to just stimulate the other breast to try and boost supply. Does anyone know if it will do that?

I've been attaching DS to one side for a minute to stimulate, then swapping him to the other side, and attaching the Haakaa to the first side. Seems to work so far for me. I don't leak much usually.

When I started 50ml was good now I can get 3-4oz.

Just be aware the haaka only collects foremilk and won’t drain the breast collecting hind milk aswell like an electric pump will.
