Guide Review - HoneySuckle Breastmilk Storage Bags

I love a product that helps a mom provide breast milk to her baby when they have to be separated. As a mom who frequently pumps and freezes her breast milk, I can't tell you how upsetting it is when a bag leaks or breaks. That's when I definitely cry over spilled milk! HoneySuckle Breastmilk Storage Bags are double-zipper sealed bags to store your breast milk. That means if you accidentally miss part of the zipper or part comes undone, you don't lose all of your milk. Even with vigorous shaking and tumbling, no liquid was lost from the bag. It didn't tear, break or leak. I was impressed. The bag also does a fairly good job of standing up for pouring and feels heavy to the touch. One of my favorite features is that the bag is biodegradable, which helps me feel a little bit better about using a non-reusable container to store my milk. My one complaint is that the storage guidelines for breast milk printed both on the bag and in the instructions on the box are very incorrect. Correct breast milk storage guidelines can be found here: Breast Milk Storage Guidelines

Giving your baby breast milk is one of the best gifts you can give your child. HoneySuckle Breastmilk Storage Bags make giving your child your expressed breast milk easier.

These bags are absolutely TERRIBLE. I've been nursing and pumping for over 6 months now. I started out with the Lansinoh bags and never had a problem but switched to these because of all the stellar reviews. Don't believe all the hype about the reinforced edges or the double seal. I've had several incidents with milk leaking from these bags. The seals are so sticky that when you pry them apart to fill the bag, the smaller seal breaks (stays stuck on one side) and the bag becomes unusable - because as I sadly found out, just the bigger seal will NOT hold the milk in. I've had to throw out countless bags because of this issue. Now, after mastering the surgical preciseness with which I have to open the bags, I've had two bags with tiny holes/slits in the ""reinforced"" edges through which milk started to leak out as soon as I poured it in. Buy any other brand but don't buy these.
