About Haakaa

Hi mummies, let me know if you heard of this theory and whether it is true. Usually when I breastfeed my baby on one side, I would place the Haakaa on the other side to catch the milk. Does the amount of milk caught in the Haakaa equates to the amount of milk baby drinks from drinking breast? This is how my confinement nanny determines the amount my baby drinks when it comes to feeding at night with expressed milk.. feeding breast + milk caught in Haakaa = total amount per feed. confusing…😅#1stimemom#firstbaby #BreastfebBabies

it’s totally not equal. the flow from haakaa is from natural contraction of muscle and suction, and not as strong as baby’s suckling.. amount is different for sure

Thank you! This makes sense.
