*Why pay more for something far less functional?*
I made my son's first Feeding Pump Bag Cover when he was about a year old - and I don't know why I waited so long!
Our Feeding Pump Bag Covers are such simple devices that make life so much easier. They are insulated to help keep your feed and ice pack cold and they're roomy enough to hold both a full feeding bag and an ice pack of reasonable size. They'll fit inside your backpack - or any other bag.
I used the bag last night and put [a few small] ice packs in there... I filled up her bag to the top last night and the bit that was in there yet this morning was ICE COLD! Awesome, thank you so much! It eliminates my needing to get up every few hours to add formula! - a recent customer.
I slept through the night for the first time last night with your insulated cover to keep my son's feed cold. I feel like a new woman!!! Thank you thank you!!!!! - Mandy M.
This cover is a size Medium and will fit BOTH Kangaroo brand 500 mL size bags AND Infinity brand 500 mL size, or similar. It will accommodate bags up to 7 inches wide and 9 inches tall.
Some people love using these covers with their IV bags, as well, especially if they will be outdoors in warm weather, or if they want some added cushion around their IV bags. The medium size covers will fit most 500 mL IV bags. If you prefer to cover your IV with an uninsulated cover, we do offer IV Bag Covers, as well.
Our Insulated Feeding Pump Bag Covers snap ALL the way around, opening completely flat. This means no need to string the tubing through a small opening in the cover - and it means you can wrap the cover around a bag that's already running. (I know that sounds like a small thing, but it's my favorite part of these covers, and customers consistently return comments like oh, it was sooooo nice to not have to feed the tubing through a hole in the cover!)
Best of all, we made our Feeding Pump Bag Covers versatile to fit multiple brands of feeding pump bags. Most other insulated covers are intended for just one brand of feeding pump - but that doesn't work for MY family. At home, we use an Infinity pump, but during hospital stays, we use the hospital's Kangaroo pumps. So, we designed our Covers to fit both.
Technical details: The insulating material is a high quality, densely-woven fleece by Malden Mills. This stuff insulates better than lunchbags and oven mitts. Our experience and that of our testers and customers has been that these covers plus a decent quality ice pack will keep a feed cold for an entire day or an entire night. We do not have air conditioning at our house, and have kept a feed refrigerator-cool all night with an ice pack and this bag. Please Note: You *must* use an ice pack with this bag if you want to keep your feed chilled for more than an hour or so. It is not a refrigerator. :)
The inside surface of the cover is flannel, not waterproof fabric. The flannel absorbs the condensation from your feed and ice pack, bringing an end to bothersome dripping.
I was surprised to find flannel inside the bag - I've only used waterproof bags - but then I noticed that this bag didn't drip condensation like our other bag does. NICE! - one of our early testers
Our ready to ship insulated bags do NOT have a pocket for an ice pack. The ice pack just tucks in the cover along with the feeding set. If you PREFER a pocket for the ice pack, we can certainly make you a bag with a pocket if you order a custom made cover.
Not every snap position will be used in every situation. Snap the cover around your feeding pump bag however it works for your set-up. Most people find that they prefer to use the hang loop inside the cover for Infinity bags, while they don't use the inside hang loop for Kangaroo - but however you use it is up to you. If you find you're not sure how best to use your bag with your current setup, please just message us!
Please note: You MUST wash these regularly. Machine wash cold, tumble dry low or air dry. I recommend washing weekly or any time it gets visibly dirty, gets formula or food spilled on it, experiences a feeding bag explosion, etc.
How cool any cover (or lunch box) will keep your food will vary with the ice pack you use, volume and thickness of your food, and the temperature of your environment. I encourage you to monitor the temperature of your food for safety while using this or any insulated cover. No guarantee is made that your food will maintain any specific temperature.
Thank you I really like the one we just got that is why I am ordering again. Thank you so much you have made my and my son's life easier with these!!
