You don’t. Plenty of parents all over the world never use a bottle with their baby. But they can also never leave their baby. This means no going to a doctor’s appointment alone, no having a drink with friends and no going back to work. It can feel very limiting to not be able to travel far distances from your baby and to always be watching the clock even if you go for a walk or bike ride.
Okay but seriously...it is. It’s a small silicone cup type contraption that you suction to the breast that you are not nursing off of. It stays there while you hands-free nurse off of the other side. Oftentimes women leak off of the breast they are not nursing on. This milk usually gets soaked up in a pad and wasted. The haaka catches this milk, and the very gentle stimulation can encourage a bit more milk flow as well. With no extra effort sometimes moms will get an extra oz each feeding. By the end of the day that is a full extra bottle that you can offer your baby when you have to run an errand!
