What is Colostrum?
Otherwise known as first milk, is a thicker viscosity golden fluid released before breast milk production begins. For some, it comes during their third trimester which means you may be able to express the colostrum and store it ahead in preparation for your baby's arrival.
Colostrum is regarded as ideal nourishment for a newborn. It is highly concentrated, full of good fats, protein, nutrient-dense, so a little goes a long way. You can build up a ‘stock’ and keep it in your fridge so, should you hit a curve in your breastfeeding journey, and your baby needs extra fluid or nutrition, you have the expressed colostrum that can help you bridge the gap.
Colostrum is traditionally collected in single-use syringes often made from harmful plastics. The Haakaa collector is made of 100% medical grade silicone, which means it won't leach nasty toxins and can be safely stored in the fridge or freezer. It's easy-to-use and reuse, making it the ideal option for mums both before and after birth!
Please note: Not everyone is a candidate for antenatal colostrum expressing, so always get the green light from your midwife, OB-GYN or doctor first.
Colostrum can be collected in single-use, plastic syringes sometimes provided by your health provider, but the Haakaa Colostrum Collector does better. Made of 100% medical-grade silicone, this colostrum collection kit is toxin-free and is designed to be reused. Made from soft squeezable silicone, the colostrum collector has a vacuum effect to collect droplets that can be safely stored in the fridge or freezer for later. And unlike traditional syringes, you can feed and manage your colostrum from the same container.
