kindestCup - 3 in 1 Breakmilk Collection Cup
Empowering parents to breastfeed with confidence.
Breastfeeding is a beautiful and easy way to nourish and comfort tiny humans. But managing lactating breasts and regulating milk supply can be challenging.
The worlds first and only 3 in 1 breastfeeding cup supports breastfeeding in three ways:
- Hand expression
- Cup feeding
- Saving leaking breast milk
1. Hand expression: This is the most natural, effective method of breastmilk expression (other than breastfeeding a baby). kindestCup is ergonomically designed to make hand expression easy. It promotes good posture and can be used right and left-handed and in any position: sitting, reclined, side-lying. It is engineered (by breastfeeding mums) to collect hand expressed milk efficiently. The sprays in every direction are contained within the soft silicone cup.
Hand expression is as old as breastfeeding itself. During hand expression the gentle, pleasant touch of your own hands generates positive feedback, which triggers and promotes the release of breast milk. kindestCup is designed to amplify this positive feedback loop.
Many lactation professionals recommend hand expression to prevent medical conditions such as engorgement, blocked ducts or mastitis
Hand expression is beneficial for managing both, low milk supply and oversupply
Easy once learnt, free, always available and feels good
Able to be done without baby (ie not just a milk catcher)
Hand expressed milk has more fat content than pumped milk
2. Cup feeding: kindestCup has a soft rim that conforms to baby's tiny mouth so that baby can feed directly from kindestCup. No artificial nipples, no nipple confusion. Cup feeding is completely natural for babies. Even newborns can do it.
Cup feeding may also help babies who get gassy or colicky from the bottle
Some lactation professionals recommend cup feeding as a temporary feeding alternative for babies who struggle with breastfeeding issues due to oral restrictions, such as tongue ties or lip ties
- Some dentists recommend cup feeding to promote healthy oral-facial development
3. Saving leaking breast milk: Breast milk is liquid gold that should not go to waste on clothes or nursing pads. Take advantage of the letdown reflex, for example when baby is nursing on the opposite breast. kindestCup gently adheres to the leaky breast and collects drip milk to save for later. kindestCup has wider opening and more compact shape than any other silicone breast pump, which makes for an exceptionally gentle and secure latch. Fits all breast sizes.
