In honor of Prematurity Awareness Month, we’re sharing why NICU nurses and lactation consultants recommend Milk Stork to NICU families everywhere.
- Trust that Your Precious Breast Milk Will Reach Your Preemie. Breast milk is a vital lifeline for premature infants, known for its unique benefits that enhance immune function and support neurological development. Neonatal nurses and lactation consultants understand this better than anyone and recommend Milk Stork to NICU parents for the ease and reliability we provide to parents traveling with breast milk. We’ve shipped more than 7 million ounces of breast milk and completed more than 101,000 deliveries to date!
- Lightening the Load of Logistics. NICU parents already face monumental challenges—juggling work, caring for other children, and coping with the emotional toll of having a baby in the NICU. Providing breast milk can be Herculean effort, but Milk Stork’s breast milk travel solutions ease the logistical burden. Breast milk, though powerful, is delicate and requires proper refrigeration at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or colder to preserve its nutrients. This challenge can be particularly daunting for parents with long drives to and from the NICU, especially during warmer months. Milk Stork offers solutions like the Cool Commuter, featuring robust insulation to keep your breast milk safe and refrigerated on the go.
- Lightening the Mental Load. NICU journeys are filled with emotional highs and lows, and the added stress of managing breast milk logistics can take a heavy mental toll on families. This is where Milk Stork truly shines. With medical-grade coolers and travel solutions designed with care, we safeguard your breast milk and ensure that it reaches your baby safely and easily, no matter the distance or circumstances.
If you’re a NICU parent grappling with the challenges of pumping and traveling with breast milk, consider familiarizing yourself with Milk Stork. It’s more than just a service—it’s a lifeline that can make your journey a little easier and more manageable. With a little help from Milk Stork, you can focus on providing the best care for your baby and focus on what truly matters: Your family.
