The coolest? The Miracle Blanket. But I've already raved about that.
Second coolest? Sensible Lines Milk Trays. These trays would make a great gift for a breastfeeding mom who pumps and freezes her milk.
Sensible Lines has created these great, BPA-free, trays that freeze milk in one-ounce tubes. Once a tray is full and frozen, the milk can be popped out and thrown in a normal, zippered freezer bag.
There are a few benefits to this type of storage:
- Normal breast milk storage bags can really add up, cost-wise, especially for a mom who is pumping multiple times a day. These trays only need to be bought once, and a lot of the little "milk tubes" can be stored in one inexpensive freezer bag. Easy on the wallet and the landfills.
- According to the Sensible Lines Website, freezing milk in smaller portions may preserve more of its nutrients since it freezes faster.
- It's easy to thaw exactly the amount of milk needed--instead of searching for a bag of frozen milk that just happens to contain three ounces, the caregiver just thaws three little milk tubes. Simple.
