  • Don't think it's a huge necessity. Would have rather used something like the hakka. Sep 25, 2020

  • Great for the first few weeks at home when everything is sore. Also good for helping heal nipple damage. Sep 16, 2020

    Used before giving birth for about two months to help inverted nipples. Aug 22, 2020

  • Do not recommend for inverted nipples. Painful to wear for long periods of time and caused a lot more irritation than without them. Jul 22, 2020

  • Best invention ever for sore nipples! They keep your shirt/bra from touching and make those first few days/weeks bearable. Can do nipple cream under and heal sore nipples much faster. Great gift! Apr 03, 2020

  • These were SO helpful at the beginning when my nipples were sore and I didn't want them to touch fabric! I could put them on, but still wear a shirt normally. Mar 31, 2020

  • these were given to me in the hospital and they are a life saver. this product also catches your milk which is great but not so great when bending over and your milk spilled Mar 23, 2020

  • These were lifesavers in the newborn cluster feeding days to give sensitive areas some time to air out without touching anything. Mar 06, 2020

  • These helped with an inverted nipple which was a nightmare until I found this product! I love these things, just make sure the vent holes aren’t in a position to leak! Feb 19, 2020

    These were great to have when my nipples were so sore at the beginning of breastfeeding! I couldn't stand for anything to be touching them so this gave me much needed relief. Jan 23, 2020

    A must have for new nursing moms!!! Keeps your clothes off of your nipples and lets air get to them so they can heal!!! Oct 02, 2019

  • Great if you are having breastfeeding issues Sep 25, 2019

  • These helped prevent chafing when I first started breastfeeding. As an extra bonus they collected any letdown milk. Sep 04, 2019

  • These saved my nipples shortly after I started nursing. Gives them a space to heal. Aug 22, 2019

    • Eti D.
    • EDINA, Minnesota

    I never understood how to use it and it was uncomfortable Aug 15, 2019

  • Worked great in the early weeks when it hurt for my nipples to touch a bra or shirt and also helped with inverted nipples Aug 09, 2019

    • Anne G.
    • Lansdale, Pennsylvania

    I had very sore nips and I felt they were getting irritated all day being smooshed in my bra and under clothes. I thought this would help but it irritated them even more. Maybe they were too small. Aug 09, 2019

    • Little Canada, Minnesota

    For the first weeks after starting to nurse this are the best, it does help you but after you get used to it you don't use them any more Jul 29, 2019

  • I love that these make flat/inverted or sore nipples pain-free and ready for nursing. I wear these in my bra every day! Jul 24, 2019

  • Great when I first started nursing and I couldn’t stand anything to even graze my nipples. Jul 11, 2019

  • I didn’t love these. The space to put your nipple in would be pushed to hard with my bra and always ended up hurting me more than helping. Jun 27, 2019

    • Alena T.
    • Raleigh, North Carolina

    These are great for catching milk from the breast that my baby is not feeding on early in our breastfeeding journey. I was able to start saving milk early! Every little bit counts Jun 22, 2019

  • These are so convenient! I like that they fit in your bra so it’s not in the way of my baby while he nurses the other side. Easy to clean and assemble. Jun 20, 2019

  • These were so critical during the first few weeks of mother hood! My nips were so sore and these helped give some relief. Truly they were a lifesaver! May 10, 2019

    So helpful for sparing sore nipples from rubbing in your shirt and bra. Highly recommend if you're dealing with soreness. Apr 25, 2019

    Used these when I was pumping. My breasts were tender and leaking. These were a must need when I went back to work. Apr 04, 2019

    Great for sensitive nipples with breastfeeding. Mar 19, 2019

  • These were hard to get used to but did help draw my inverted nipples out. Mar 10, 2019

    Why weeLove Milkflow Lactation Cookies:

    In case you need a valid excuse to eat cookies, here’s a really good one: boosting milk supply. Nursing moms need to fuel their bodies to keep up with the demands of milk production and new parenthood. (If you’ve been wearing the same pants for three days—we get it, girl!) While lactation teas, capsules and powders aren’t for everybody, cookies most certainly are.

    Milkflow™ from UpSpring created the first ever lactation cookies made with the dream team of ingredients: Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle. These two essentials work together to help naturally promote breast milk supply in those early days, during your baby’s growth spurts (when you’re glued to the glider for feedings!), and pumping sessions.

    Available in Oatmeal Raisin and Double Chocolate Chip, cookies are non-GMO and made in the USA with all natural ingredients. These tasty treats come in packs of two—perfect for tossing in your diaper bag for a healthy snack on the go. Each box comes with 10 packs (20 cookies total), so you’ll be able to keep your milk production going strong while keeping “Hangry Mom Running Errands” at bay. It’s a win-win.

  • Milkflow Lactation Coffee Pods
  • weeThink

    Moms are all about multi-tasking (just ask anyone who can fold laundry, while doing an Amazon Prime order, while playing peek-a-boo with the baby.) Luckily, here's a way to get multiple things done at once, with a lot less juggling...

    UpSpring Milkflow Coffee Pods give nursing women a much-needed caffeine fix—along with milk-boosting duo fenugreek and blessed thistle—in just one cup of joe. A lactation supplement in easy-to-brew coffee? Yes, please!

    Compatible with most Keurig K-Cup coffee makers, each pod serves 55mg of caffeine and 450mg of Fenugreek to help establish or increase a healthy milk supply (hello, growth spurts!). All ingredients are natural, gluten-free, and non-GMO. And don't worry—the pods themselves are made with mother (earth) in mind, too. They're 100% compostable, 100% plant-based, and BPA-free.

    Ready to pop in a pod and get back to that master multi-tasking? Because there's a diaper bag to be packed + car keys to be found.
