Milkies Milk Trays
Milk Trays are Bisphenol-A and phthalate FREE. They are manufactured in the USA and Sensible Lines is proud to say ‘we have been using the best plastic for breast milk freezing and storage since the creation of Milk Trays. Using this form of breast milk storage reduces the amount of wasted plastic associated with nurser bags. They only have one use where Milk Trays are absolutely reusable! Moms can also stop continuously spending money on nurser bags! Studies show that infants fed with canned formulas and from bottles manufactured with BPA are exposed to as much as 13 mcg/kg per day. Moms want to look for plastic baby feeding products that are recycle rating “1” .
Milk Trays™ are a breast milk freezing system made from PETG plastic which is a medical-grade and FDA-approved plastic that meets the highest standards in plastics manufacturing in the US and in Europe! Milk Trays™ are even made from a higher grade of plastic than nurser bags and are even safe for the environment. Milk Trays™ are a breast milk storage system that will eliminate many of the problems breastfeeding/breast pumping mothers face today.
Milk Trays™ are a safer, easier and more economical choice for breastfeeding mothers who want to create a frozen stash of their breast milk. If you are a working mom, an on-the-go mom, or just a mom wanting the security of knowing that she will never run out of breast milk then Milk Trays™ are the right choice for you!
Notable attributes of Milk Trays™ are:
Sixteen semi-cylinder cavities that equal one ounce each, eliminating waste common with nurser bags
These one-ounce Milk Sticks fit through ALL bottle openings, unlike “ice cubes”
Lids that block out freezer burn, eliminate freezer smells and are easy to stack
Slim in size to ensure ample room in the freezer
Withstands temperatures from –40˚ to 212˚ (boiling begins at 212˚)
Plastic that is very flexible making it easy to remove the frozen Milk Sticks.
Reusable and can last, depending on use, for up to one year
Made from hard plastic and does not allow fat soluble nutrients to adhere or cling to the sides like the soft plastic of nurser bags
Invented by breastfeeding, working moms
Milk Trays™ are not ice cube trays (or ice cube trays with lids). Milk Trays™ are a breast milk freezing system that has been specifically designed for breast milk. From the higher quality of plastic, exact measurements, versatile shape, flexibility down to the lids, Milk Trays™ are the right choice for breastfeeding mothers.
Milk Trays™ (breast milk storage trays) are used to freeze expressed breast milk, not actually store breast milk. Breastfeeding/pumping mothers will pump their breast milk into the bottles that come with the breast pumps and then pour that expressed breast milk into their Milk Trays™. This will then freeze it into the one-ounce servings and patented shape that will fit into any bottle opening in just a few short hours. Once frozen mothers will then “pop out” their one-ounce Milk Sticks™ and store them in freezer safe zip lock bags (easily found in every kitchen) until ready to use. Now the trays can be reused for the next round(s) of pumping.
Freezing expressed breast milk this way allows for more room in the freezer by allowing mothers to place as many ounces as they want (usually over a two week span) into one bag. Since the one-ounce Milk Sticks™ are already frozen they remain separated in the bag allowing mothers to remove only the ounces needed for that bottle at that time. Also in one-ounce servings breast milk freezes faster minimizing the amount of nutrients lost during the freezing process. Freezer safe zip lock bags are safe to hold frozen food products like breast milk remember the milk is already frozen! It is safe to touch the frozen breast milk as long as hands are washed prior to touching the milk.
Let’s face it, breast pumping is hard! Babies know how to get feed better than we can pump. However since women make up over 46% of the work force, mothers wanting to continue working and breast feeding have to pump and store their breast milk. Breast pumping requires dedication and patience not to mention staying hydrated and well rested! What mother can achieve all that?
Since mothers don’t want to have hundreds of barely filled nurser bags in their freezer they tend to pour four to eight ounces into each bag. The entire bag must be thawed and since breast milk cannot be refrozen once thawed (even warming then cooling then warming again is also a “no-no” because of early spoiling and even more destruction of valuable nutrients) usually several ounces get thrown away. Think about that for a moment…several ounces thrown away…that can really add up over time.
Here are just some simple numbers to consider……
If you were to waste only two ounces of breast milk in one day. That equals 10 ounces wasted in one work week! That adds up to 40 ounces wasted in one work month! You have now wasted 480 ounces in one year!
WOW, and that is only counting just two ounces a day
