Judi Weinstein was ready to breastfeed her first son, but latching problems made that difficult. That experience left her with a plan B: to pump and store breast milk for bottle feeding. Unfortunately, she encountered another roadblock during that process.
Determined that there had to be a better way to pump, store and feed the breast milk, she created her own solution. That solution is called the Mother’s Milk Mate, reports Trib Local.
â€œI wanted to create a system that would benefit moms like myself, as well as those moms returning to work, who were still committed to providing breast milk to their babiesâ€, Judi says of her invention.
The Motherâ€™s Milk Mate Rack & Bottle Breast Milk Storage System offers breastfeeding moms and their babies a variety of health, safety and convenience benefits. Most importantly, it lets moms pump, store and feed their breast milk using the same BPA-free, recyclable bottle.
â€œI was tired of sorting through disorganized, messy and leaky breast milk storage bags,â€ Judi says. â€œI knew I could come up with a better way to organize my pumped breast milk. I also knew I wasnâ€™t alone, and a great solution could benefit other moms.â€
“My motivation was simple. The desire for a single bottle for pumping, storing and feeding that would make for a happy, healthy, breastfed baby and a less frustrated mom!”
