I must admit, I was absolutely amazed when I first read about 'Breastmilk Popsicles' or 'Momsicles' as our American friends call them. What a fantastic idea! Baby gets all the goodness of the breastmilk delivered in lolly form, which is so refreshing and cooling for the summer and it even helps soothe gums if baby is teething.
So why not get expressing if you're already breastfeeding and make up some breastmilk popsicles (or lollies) - they are so quick and easy to make and baby is sure to love them!
1. If you haven't got one already, buy a lolly mould from any supermarket or home centre - they are so cheap and even IKEA sells them. Wash and rinse well.
2. Express some breast milk into a bottle
3. Pour your expressed breast milk into the moulds and place in the freezer.
You can offer baby a breastmilk popsicle every other day or every few days or once a week - it's up to you. They are sure to go down well on hot days. Enjoy!
