I recently had my second son, and while nursing my first son came easy to me and I had absolutely no issues, this second time around has been a different story. This little guy was born with a tongue tie (that flap of skin under your tongue is attached more than normal) which made breastfeeding excruciating. I mean, toe curling pain every time he would latch on. I had to pump milk exclusively to save my sanity and keep him fed.
Pumping exclusively is hard work, and it is quite a process: pumping, transferring to bags, freezing, thawing, warming, transferring to bottle, feeding, washing the bottle…start again.
Well breastfeeding moms, take note. We have a wonderful system to share with you that makes pumping a breeze!
The Kiinde Twist Universal Direct-Pump breastmilk collection, storage and feeding system takes the “process” out of pumping and makes it SO much easier! You pump, freeze, warm and freeze your breastmilk all without needing to transfer (and risk spilling your precious milk). Here’s how it works:
The Kiinde Twist system comes with adapters for all major breast pumps (excluding Dr Browns).
Using the included Direct-Pump™ adapters, Twist Pouches™ twist-lock onto pumps from all major brands, for leak-free, transfer-free pumping, directly into the pouch.
After pumping, store and organize Twist Pouches using the Kiinde Keeper™ breastmilk storage bag holder, which fits in all standard fridges and freezers.
- Keeper allows you to quickly and easily organize your expressed breastmilk storage bags by date. Its universal design fits Kiinde Twist Pouches™, and breastmilk storage bags from all brands and sizes.
Feed directly from Kiinde Twist Pouches™ using the Kiinde Squeeze™ natural feeding bottle, eliminating the need to transfer milk from bottles to bags and back again! Just snap the pouch directly into the Squeeze natural feeding bottle, squeeze the air out of the pouch, and pop the Active-Latch™ nipple on top!
- Twist Pouches™ can completely eliminate gas from your baby’s meal, without complicated venting mechanisms.
Active Latch™ nipples are designed to teach and reward deep, wide, natural latching. By requiring suction AND massaging of the nipple, they are designed to discourage “lazy latching”, and to ease the transition between bottle and breast. You can also use other brand nipples with an adapter!
I am in love with the Kiinde Twist! We use it often, even now that my son’s tongue tie has been fixed and I am back to nursing again. It makes it easy for us to leave him with a babysitter when they don’t have to worry about transferring the milk between bags and bottles.
He never once had issues using the nipple on the “Squeeze”, and goes between bottle and breast with no problems whatsoever.
The Twist system is so easy to use, and made exclusively pumping a much easier experience. You can purchase the Starter Kit, which comes with everything you need OR get the Gift Set, which includes a Kozii Milk Warmer on top of everything you receive in the Starter Kit!
