    How much colostrum should I express?

    Colostrum can be collected safely from 36 weeks pregnant. It is always recommended though to contact your health care professional before starting colostrum collection. In terms, of how much you should collect; this is body dependent on the collection being variable to each person. Some mothers may only be able to collect 1ml per collection, whilst others may get up to 5ml.

    Colostrum collecting kit

    I really like that it comes in a cute little bag that is discreet and I can use as a clutch later. There are plenty of different size syringes which is handy as this early on, some days there will be more than others. This is the second time I have used the product and it’s all so great and compact. Last time I popped the whole bag in the freezer ready for my husband to grab and throw in an Eskimo to take to the hospital so I plan on doing that again for ease.

Brilliant customer service! The kits are great and give you all the things you need to get started on your breastfeeding journey!

    I was thrilled for this to arrive and to have found an all-inclusive colostrum collection kit, from the different size syringes to the labels for the hospital. I was also grateful as a first-time mum for them to include a 'how to' card - super helpful!
