The Haakaa Ladybug Silicone Breast Milk Collector is the perfect breast pad alternative for mums who want to save every drop of leakage and letdown instead of soaking it up.
The one-piece design attaches to your breast with suction and sits securely and discreetly in your bra. This suction is light and gentle to hold the product in place. It won't draw out additional milk, so it's ideal for mums who leak breast milk and want to save it without increasing their supply.
You can wear the Ladybug on the other side while you're breastfeeding to catch your letdown or wear one on each breast inside your bra as you carry on with your day. It is completely portable and has small feet on the bottom to stand upright on any flat surface, preventing spills after use.
Once you have finished collecting your letdown, open the plug on the top and safely pour out your milk into a container or bottle.

Milkbar Tip: The Ladybug Milk Collector is best suited for those who leak while breastfeeding or not looking to actively pump breastmilk. If you don't actively leak while feeding we recommend the Haakaa Silicone Pump as the milk collector only has gentle suction and is a more passive way to collect milk.
Size Guide: the most popular version is the 75ml style, with mums with larger supply/leakage opting for the larger 150ml version. We also have a 40ml style for more discreat use.

The guidelines of health organisations should be followed at all times with regards to catching let-down/expressing and storing milk safely.
Collecting Your Leakage and Letdown:
- With the plug closed, press down on the back of the Ladybug and centre the main opening over your nipple.
- Press to your breast and release to create gentle suction and begin collecting letdown.
- Wear your Ladybug on the other side while nursing to collect letdown, or wear one on each breast to collect leakage throughout the day.
- Remove the Ladybug regularly to store your breast milk in line with your country's safe breast milk storage guidelines. Pull the plug from the outlet and pour out the milk from the outlet into a container before storing it.
NOTE: The Ladybug should always be worn inside your bra to keep it secure. Suction is optional and helps to keep the Ladybug in place in your bra. The Ladybug will only collect milk that would have leaked anyway. It won't draw out any extra milk.
