HOW WE BEGAN

The birth of our company started during my global health career, while working at UNICEF, helping mamas maintain breastfeeding in factory workplaces. When we resolved the usual workplace issues of break times, lactation space and breast pumps, we were baffled that we could not resolve one major struggle: how to store breast milk outside the fridge, keeping their milk cold long enough to last their 10+ hour workdays and commutes.

Since then, we have been on a mission to resolve this hidden crisis!

Our journey getting here was not easy. We first looked at existing products—and found dozens of cooler inventions for beer, but practically none for breast milk! As we realized we needed to invent our own solution, we found that the path to create hardware was not paved for women. 

And all of THAT, drove us even more!

This massive passion resulted in our patented, portable breast milk cooler that will last up to 18 hours designed and produced almost entirely by women!

Take it to the beach, on a mountain top, to the office , along your travels -wherever you need to pump without the stress of spoiling that liquid gold. YOU are proving that mamas can give 100% to our babies without sacrificing our sanity and well-being! 

Thanks for letting Mila's Keeper be a a part of your breastfeeding journey and helping us pave an easier road for all mamas.

OUR JOURNEY

Mila's Keeper UNICEF Project - factory workers in Vietnam

The inspiration

Despite experts in hand, our UNICEF project fell short of our goal of helping thousands of working mamas maintain their breastfeeding goals due to the inability of keeping breast milk cold long enough to last their daily 10+ hour work and commute. Finding a cooler and storage solution for this problem marked the beginning of our journey with Mila's Keeper.
