Save yourself some major headaches!
on July 27, 2017
I really hate these bags. As with most new mothers, I was looking for a way to make life easier. "These fit right onto the pump and are made by the same company as my pump!" I thought. Perfect! NOPE! In no particular order, here are the problems with this product:
#1) The "adapter" is just a wide funnel that is extremely difficult to fit into the two holes at the top of the bag meant to fit them. I had several of the holes rip through, making the bag useless for the pump unless I taped up the top of the hole. The funnel adapter itself sits just barely in the top of the bag, so forget about making any moves while pumping. You will need to hold perfectly upright and still in order to not dump breastmilk all over your lap.
#2) The markings on the bag are "approximate", but are WAY off. I pumped and measured 120 mL and when measured using the markings on the bag, it showed a 40 mL difference.
#3) LEAKING - I know that other reviews talk about this, but the ziplock top is useless and I had one bag leak all over the freezer. Having a hungry, crying baby and frozen breastmilk all over your freezer and frozen food is not my idea of time-saving or easier. Cut to me pouring boiling water into my freezer to clean up the mess during the only few minutes of precious free time I had between feedings and pumping... I was not a happy mama.
#4) Pouring from bag to bottle. Forget about a nice, smooth, clean pour. If you try to pour out of the front/back, you run into the hole meant for the adapter, if you pour out of the side milk will jump over the bumps caused by the closure strips and make a mess.
I'm going back to my old bags!
