We were “green” before “green” was in!
Milk Trays™ are FREE from
Bisphenol-A, Phthalates and dyes. These trays and even the plastic
itself are manufactured in right here in the USA and Sensible Lines is
proud to say that we have been using the best plastic for freezing
breast milk since the creation of Milk Trays™. Using this form of
freezing breast milk reduces the amount of wasted plastic associated
with nurser bags. Nurser bags have to be thrown away after only one
use! Milk Trays™ are 100% reusable and recyclable! Moms can 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 “ recycle rating “1”.
Milk Trays™ are a breast milk freezing system made from PETG plastic, a medical-grade plastic meeting the highest standards
in plastic and manufactured right here in the United States! Milk
Trays™ will eliminate many of the problems you as a
breastfeeding/breast pumping mother face today.
Milk Trays™ are a safer, easier and
more economical choice for you to create a frozen "stash" of breast
milk. If you are a working mom, an on-the-go mom, or just a mom wanting
the security of knowing that you will never run out of breast milk then
Milk Trays™ are the right choice for you!
Notable attributes of Milk Trays™ are:
- Total of 16 semi-cylinder cavities that are 1 oz. each
- Eliminates waste associated with nurser bags
- 1 oz. Milk Sticks fit through ALL bottle openings, unlike “ice cubes”
- Lids block out freezer burn, eliminate freezer smells and are easy to stack
- Slim in size to ensure ample room in the freezer
- Plastic 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 expressed
breast milk. From the higher quality of plastic, exact measurements,
versatile shape, flexibility down to the lids, Milk Trays™ are the right
choice for you, the breastfeeding mother.
Milk Trays™ are used to freeze
expressed breast milk, not actually store breast milk. You will pump
breast milk into the bottles that come with the breast pump and then
pour that expressed breast milk into each of the cavities of your Milk
Trays™. This will then freeze it into the patented one-ounce servings in just a few short hours
and will fit into any bottle opening . Once the breast milk is frozen,
you will then “pop out” the one-ounce Milk Sticks™ and store them in
dated freezer-safe zip lock bags (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 in
Milk Trays™ allows for more room in the freezer by allowing you to place
as many ounces as you 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 you 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 you wash your hands prior to handling the milk.
Let’s face it, breast pumping is hard! Babies know how to get fed better than we can pump. However since us women make up over 46% of the work force,
we want to continue working and breast feeding, we have to pump and
store our breast milk. Breast pumping requires dedication and patience
not to mention staying hydrated and well rested! What mother can achieve all that?
You don’t want to have hundreds of
barely filled nurser bags in your freezer that you'll tend to pour four
to eight ounces into. 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
Make the right choice for yourself and your baby. Freeze your expressed breast milk in Milk Trays™.
