Sending your Inclusions

After placing an order, follow the instructions below to send your inclusions to us.

Breastmilk

AMOUNT TO SEND:
2-15ml (1/2 Teaspoon - 1 Tablespoon)

Seal your Breastmilk in a milk storage bag with the air squeezed out.

It's very important to use a proper milk storage bag and not a zip-lock bag as these are sterile and prevent milk from going bad in the post.

Label the bag with your name and your order number beginning with 'S'. Wrap in paper towel and seal inside a second storage/resealable bag.

Please use the same name you have placed your order under.

NOTES:
- Milk does not need to be kept cold in transit.
