Hi friend, today we will be talking about about one of our favorite breastfeeding products the Haakaa. Follow along to find out why this is such a loved and highly recommended product! Promise this little guy is a GAME CHANGER!
What is a Haakaa?
A Haakaa is a breast pump. However, it's not like a traditional breast pump that consists of a bunch of parts that need constant sanitizing and assembling. A Haakaa is a silicone pump you suction to your breast. No batteries, wires or fuss.
We recommend you attach it to the opposite breast as you breastfeed or pump the other breast with an electric pump as usual.The Haakaa requires little to no effort to utilize as it is entirely hands free after you suction onto your breast. The pressure of it being suctioned actually draws out more milk and of course catches already what would have leaked otherwise into a nursing pad and gone to waste.
Breastfeeding moms know the importance of saving every last drop of that liquid gold. Work smarter not harder mama and quickly put inside your bra and start saving every drop of your liquid gold.

Your Haakaa not only can collect all that leaking liquid gold and build a quick robust freezer stash for you BUT can help with clogged ducts. Mommas who have had to deal with clogged ducts know they are no joke and you want to address them right away!

All you have to do is fill up your Haakaa with warm water, use enough to reach your nipple. Next grab your epsom salt and pour 1-2 Tbsp. Suction the Haakaa to the blocked breast and allow the heat, salts and suction relieve the clog. Keep your haakaa attached for 10min or so and repeat as needed.
