Empty the milk from the Lacticups every 2-3 hrs, right before breastfeeding or pumping. Do not exceed more than 4.0 hrs, the milk can turn sour. Please refer to Breastmilk Collection and Storage Guidelines for more information on this subject.
We must clarify that thanks to all the new knowledge on the properties of breastmilk, your milk will not be "contaminated" by leaving it on the Lacti-Cups over your breast for up to 3.0 hrs, and no more than 4.0 to ensure freshness. (2.0 hrs of babies in NICU). Breastmilk contains more than 2 million bacteria killing factors per teaspoon, therefore, your breastmilk will not be producing bacteria, it will be killing bacteria. Yes, Your Breastmilk is That Awesome Mammas!
While creating the Lacticups Essentials we realized that assembling it properly could be challenging for moms who are visually challenged or impaired. At that moment I decided to add the Braille marks of UP on the silicone lid. Also, even if we don't have visual impairments, at night while you are breastfeeding in the dark, it will be easier to assemble if you feel the embossed UP in Braille and match it to the spout in the cup.
The Plugs come in 2 colors Pink and Blue. These are Mom Hacks. These practical silicone pieces are made with two purposes, to prevent milk spills from the Lacti-Cups Essentials in case the cups are very full and you are going to be leaning forward often, or picking up your toddler or laying down.
Also, these can be used as Markers, a reminder on which breast you are feeding on next. Assign one color as your marker, and use it on the side you are nursing on next. You can wrap it around your bra strap or use it to the seal the Lacticups to prevent spills as it fills.
DO NOT SEAL THE LACTICUPS CONTINUOUSLY. That is why the barrier on the cups exists, to prevent spills, just don't allow your cups to get too full, in this way the barrier works perfectly.
Nursing moms are prone to breast yeast infections. Excess moist and heat increases the possibility to develop yeast infections, allow your breast to air dry after nursing.
The Lacticups are easy to remove: Unclip the bra on the side you are going to remove the Lacticups, have a wash cloth handy, lean forward holding the Lacticups with one hand while keeping it flat. Slowly remove it and dry your nipps from the milk.
Pour the milk into a storage container, storage bags or reusable bottles
Wash the Lacticups Essentials by separating the silicone from the cup, use dish washing soap and water, and dry it with a clean washcloth. There isn't a need to sterilize it if you wash it immediately after emptying the milk.
If you want to use the dishwasher it is very safe, BUT, you should consider that dishwasher soaps contain harsh chemicals that can leave residues in your baby's feeding utensils.
