Dexbaby MilkBank Review And Giveaway

I was ended up only breastfeeding Evan for a few months. I think I would have done it a lot longer if I would have had a breast pump and a storage system. With this baby I have a breast pump(that I'll be telling you about tomorrow) and a great storage system.

Dexbaby was super sweet and sent us the MilkBank Storage System, (3) 4.5oz storage bottles, (3) 2.5oz storage bottles, (1) 8 oz vented feeding bottle, (2) 2.5oz ventilated feeding bottles, and (3) 5oz ventilated feeding bottles.

The MilkBank Storage System includes:
1 Vacuum Pump
3 Storage Caps
1 2.5 oz storage/feeding bottle
2 4.5 oz storage/feeding bottles
1 outer insulated bottle with Stage 1 nipple & cap

MilkBank allows for your baby to have the freshest breast milk possible. Traditional methods such as bags and bottles trap oxygen when sealed. Any level of oxygen exposure begins to spoil breast milk which impacts the nutritional value and distorts the flavor. MilkBank allows you to vacuum seal breast milk into storage bottles for later feedings.

How It Works
Photobucket

I am all about any product that is better for my baby. It only makes sense that taking the oxygen out will allow breast milk to keep the nutritional value. Now that I have the MilkBank Storage System, I can pump and store my milk in the freezer. One of the main reasons I quit breastfeeding is that I am modest and didn't want to do it in public. I was skeptical of storing milk and now that I have this system I can just grab a bottle and go. I know that my baby will still be getting nutritional breast milk and I won't have to worry about ducking into dressing rooms to feed her.

Evan was a fussy baby. He had a touch of colic and horrible reflux. We tried several bottles to keep the air out, but they were all hard to keep clean. MilkBank has a triple-vented cap that prevents colic, spit-up, burping, gas, and fluid in the ear. Not only is it leak-proof, but it is also 100% dishwasher safe!! There are no extra brushes which means less fuss!

How Vented Feeding Bottles Work
Photobucket

Did you know that warm milk or formula allows for the best nutritional absorption? MilkBank has amazing Insulated Feeding Bottles that will keep milk warm throughout the entire feeding. You can use air or warm water to keep the inner bottle insulated. These bottles are also ventilated. Not only will baby receive the best nutrition possible with the warm milk, but it also has all of the same features as the the ventilated bottles.

How Insulated Bottles Work
Photobucket

This is a picture of a storage bottle inside of the insulating bottle.
Photobucket
You can see where you would fill with warm water if you were using either the 2.5oz or 4.5oz bottle. If the milk is already at the right temperature, you can just leave the outer insulated bottle empty and it will still keep milk warm.

I am really excited to use the MilkBank Storage System with Isabella. I am looking for any products that will make my life easier with a newborn and a toddler and MilkBank is perfect. It only takes pumping the air out to keep my breast milk more nutritional when stored. If I take bottles with me, I don't have to take time away from my son if we're out and I need to feed the baby. Even the ventilated bottles are dishwasher safe so I don't have to spend unnecessary time scrubbing them either! I want to thank Dexbaby again for sending us all of these bottles for the Baby Bash!

I thought the breastfeeding bill of rights was really helpful. I've never been asked to stop breastfeeding, but I have received some very dirty looks. It's good to know I'm actually legally allowed to do it.

I read on one of the links (myths about breast-feeding) that "resting" the breast (not breast-feeding) for a while actually doesn't help the milk supply, that it helps the supply when you keep nursing. I didn't know that.

This would be so amazing to win, because I'm a little new to milk storage and want to do it right for my new baby.

I did not get to breastfeed my baby because she was in NICU for 19 days and it was never offered Maybe because she was 7 weeks early.

Anyway I learned that you can buy these a Babies R US.

This looks like a great system. I love the link to bill of rights my fav part is: •If you have a right to be somewhere with your baby, you have a right to breastfeed there. It's the law, says La Leche League International. While there are a few places, such as courtrooms, where babies aren't permitted, you can legally nurse in most public places - stores, restaurants, parks, and malls.
