My Coldy Cold Ice Pack from Saizen

It’s been 5 months since I started pumping at work. At the end of the day, I have to transport my breastmilk from our office back to our home. One thing you need to remember is to keep your breastmilk cool/cold to avoid spoilage. So you need a good quality insulated/thermal bag aaaaaaaannnnnndddddd GOOD ICE PACK.

Before I went back to work, I’d researched what ice packs are available here in Manila. There is “Nano Ice” by Babymama. Techni Ice that you can purchase from Sulit vendors. At SM department stores, they have Coleman and Rubber Maid ice packs.

I tried the Coleman ice pack “bag” (“bag because they have the ice pack in a plastic container) but I think it is not good for long term use. The ice pack plastic warps 😦 Thus, I switch to this (refer to the image below)

I bought this from Saizen at Robinson’s Magnolia for only 88 pesos per ice pack. What I like about this ice pack is, the gel substance is sealed in a plastic container, not plastic bag, thus prevents the risk of “matapon ang laman pag natusok” πŸ™‚

Below is a picture of my Motherly Bag with my ice packs πŸ™‚ Douzo!

What are Lacta Hoops?

Image

Lacta Hoops are breastfeeding/nursing bracelet that help mothers remember which side of the breast they last nursed. The bracelet is reversible so just flip it and you’ll know what side of the breast to offer on your next feeding.

Some mother uses scrunchies, pony tails, clips, pins etc. but some of these items offer risk to your baby, like pins. Β Lacta Hoops is made of 100% silicone (the material used for making some baby toys). It is also food grade and non-toxic. It is also cold and hot resistant therefore you can sterilize it!

It is also a good fashion accessory πŸ™‚ since it is soft and does not contain choking hazard (like beaded bracelets). You can also use it to a distracted baby while nursing.

You can check this link to know how the Lacta Hoops are used πŸ™‚
