MUST HAVE Feature 1 - Oxygen & Light Barrier
Made of double layer premium LDPE/PET plastics that are freezer safe and provide an additional layer of oxygen barrier to slow down oxidizing of breastmilk enzyme. This will preserve breast milk freshness and taste after freezing.
Another factor that can cause oxidization in milk is light exposure which is also why our milk bags are not transparent.
Without the oxygen and light barrier, oxidization of breastmilk enzyme will accelerate hence generating a smell/odour which most parents are familiar with when they use single layer storage.
MUST HAVE Feature 2 - Avoid cross-contamination
Does this sound familiar - "Wash your hands, put your thumb into the milk bag mouth, unzip/pull apart defrosted breast milk bag, pour out breast milk from the very same mouth you just stuck your thumb into?"
Chances of contaminating the defrosted breastmilk had just increased by just the above actions! Worse still if your finger was wet.
With MyLO Breast Milk Storage Bag, you can avoid cross-contamination as you just have to snip/tear off the pouring spout to pour the liquid gold out.
MUST HAVE Feature 3 - Genius Thermometer
Babies prefer their milk to be warm (~40-50°C) BUT warming up to optimal temperature is so troublesome.
However, with MyLO Breast Milk Storage Bag, you don't have to test the temperature with your wrist anymore! The breast milk temperature will be indicated on the milk bag's temperature chart. No more cold or hot milk for your baby!
MUST HAVE Feature 4 - Day & Night Indicator Tab
Did you know that breastmilk expressed during the day or night have different levels of melatonin and cortisol? Melatonin (regulating sleep) is more concentrated during night pump while cortisol (increase alertness) is typically highest during the day.
Offering your baby "mistimed" milk may cause them to be more awake when they should be sleeping and vice versa!
You will find the day (sun/cloud) & night (moon/stars) icon conveniently located at the top right corner of the milk bag. Simply circle the corresponding time for easy identification among all your milk bags!
