Industry Leaders on Primo-Lacto®

“I am pleased to inform you that I trialed the Primo-Lacto system with a mom. She was having difficulty pumping colostrum for her 32 week baby who was in our NICU (had only gotten a few drops the day prior). I set her up and came in and she had filled up 2-3ml syringes with the Primo-Lacto and was in the process of filling 2 more. I am ready to place an order for the Primo-Lacto collection kits."

“I just set up a mom a few minutes ago! She is so happy! This is her 3rd and she knows how hard expressing can be! She said, ‘A nurse must have invented this!’ ‘Nope,’ I said, ‘a mom! A fantastic mom!!’”

“Colostrum is hard to capture because typically the volume is too little initially (a couple drops) and it does not flow easily due to its sticky consistency. Because of this, the favorite tool is the funnel with the syringe attached. The smooth surface of the inside of the funnel is also critical to encouraging the flow of the colostrum.”
