I was hoping for more from this & thought the funnel would be perfect. Instead it seems to hold & waste the colostrum that I’m working hard to get. Disappointed
I'm sorry you were dissapointed in the funnel not coping. There is great variations on volume of colostrum for people, this is why we include two cups with lids so you have the option to use those if the funnel does not cope. The oral syringes in 1 and 2.5ml are to either be attached to the funnel, used directly to collect drops, or suck colostrum from the cup to then store it. I hope this helps so you can get maximum use of the options in this kit.
A helpful sized kit. I’m glad I got it as my baby ended up in special care and we used the colostrum, I wish I had tried a bit harder and expressed more (I gave up after 2 or 3 days due to such tiny amounts for a lot of work). So if you’re considering it, buy this and collect whatever you can. And take it to hospital - I had less than 1mL but we used it.
Nyssa, it's wonderful to hear you collected what you could, tiny amounts really do matter! We include the 1ml syringes to try to convey this message. It's gold for your baby. x
Purchased this kit around week 37 of my pregnancy and started collecting colostrum around week 38. I found the small medicine cup very handy to express into. Much easier than trying to collect straight from breast to syringe. Good value for money, very fast shipping. Would purchase again from Ecowomen!!
Great to hear Tara, I'm happy to hear the cup option worked well for you. We try to give options so you are covered for minimum as well as generous amounts of colostrum. Best wishes for a positively journey ahead. x
