Some mamas rock the whole breast milk pump deal. NOT me. I'd listen to my friends brag about all the tons and tons of breast milk they pumped -- so much they had "a freezer full" while I was stuck hoping, just hoping to get at least two ounces per pump session (if that). Still, because I worked after my son was born, breastfeeding all the time was out of the question. I wasn't into the formula route, thus pumping was necessary, so onward I trudged with my measly 2 oz sessions. The worst part? When you have to pour those two ounces from the pump bottle to the breast milk bag then back into a feeding bottle. You always lose some milk this way and seriously, for someone bad at pumping, ANY leftover milk, even those drops left in the bag are heart breaking. Luckily, mamas today have a better option: the new Kiinde Twist, which doesn't waste a drop of precious breast milk. The Kiinde Twist is an awesome new baby feeding system that not only allows you to directly pump from ANY pump into breast milk storage pouches, but those pouches go straight to a bottle. No mess, no fuss, and best of all, no lost breast milk. Keep reading to learn more about this innovative and non-toxic breast milk feeding system.
Direct Pump Ease
The most innovative part of the Twist system is that it allows you to attach a breast milk storage bag directly to your breast milk pump using the Twist Direct-Pump adapters. These adapters twist-lock onto pumps from ALL major brands, for leak-free, transfer-free pumping, directly into the pouch. Medela, Evenflo, Lansinoh, Simplisse, Philips AVENT, Playtex, Ameda and Tommee Tippee pumps are all supported. Kiinde Twist Pouches are tough, so they won’t break, and are of course, leak-free. You can collect, store and serve breast milk using the same pouch. Pouches also self-stand or lay flat to save space, offer a high visibility labeling surface and can be used as conventional breast milk storage bags (without direct-pump).
Snap & Feed
When it’s time to feed your baby, the Twist pouches snap right into the Squeeze natural feeding bottle. You simply thaw and warm your milk, then snap the pouch directly into the Squeeze bottle, squeeze the air out of the pouch, and pop an Active Latch Nipple on and you’re good to go. Some key features include:
- Collapsible Twist Pouches eliminate gas from your baby’s meal.
- The patent-pending 1-piece Active Latch nipple means there is only 1 food-contact part to clean.
- Active Latch nipples are designed to resemble the breast so require deep, wide, natural latching.
- The contoured bottle shape is easy to hold for your little one and parents to hold.
- Top rack dishwasher safe.
- Steam sterilizer safe.
Store & Warm
The Twist system is available with some nice optional breastfeeding extras such as the Keeper, designed to hold breast milk bags flat for compact storage. You can use the Keeper to organize bags by date and dividers keep the bags from sticking together. Keeper also has an upright, easy-to-access design that makes efficient use of fridge and freezer space and holds 72 ounces of milk (12 full 6 oz bags). There’s also the Kozii Warmer, which works as fast as steam, as easy as a microwave, but is as safe as warm tap water. Kozii follows CDC and USDA guidelines to safely thaw and warm milk and the design helps eliminate hot spots.
Super Easy & Safe System
Beyond the sheer ease of this system, and the fact that you’re losing less breast milk via transfers, there are plenty of other perks as well. Some key features of Kiinde Twist include:
- The entire system is BPA-free, PVC-free, and phthalate free.
- Almost all the components are recyclable.
- The system is top rack dishwasher safe.
- The system is free from complicated parts such as threads, lock rings, or complicated venting parts, meaning it’s easier to use and clean.
