Is there anywhere other then the lact-aid site to purchase replacement bags?

no... but you can take a baby bottle and cut a hole in the nipple.. turn the nipple down on the bottle. You can slip your lact-aid in through the nipple with the ring on the lact-aid as well. Then take the collar from the bottle and screw it down onto it. It works great with the lact-aid. This way you can save your bags for out of the house trips.

That's right I used that method a lot. I also used the bottle bags that you get from the store with my lact-aid. You just have to make sure your ring is on really tight.

Thanks Nona and Lalle, I'll give it a try!
Stupid question though - then do you just hold the bottle the whole time? Cause I really have to hold the squirmy Abigail for the first few minutes while she's feeding then after a while she settles down.

I had a little pouch like you use for the lact-aid and I just stuck it in there. Or you maybe able to stick it in your bra between your breasts.

I could make a pouch that would fit the bottle. Thanks for the tip!

Here is the link to the bottles I came up with in 2001... there are pouches with them also. I no longer have the original pictures. So this is a link to them on a site I went to years ago.But this site is NOT Protocol friendly at all. So I do not frequent there anymore. http://www.fourfriends.com/abrw/Articles/adaptations.htm

Thanks Nona,
I also use this site - but what do you mean "protocol" friendly. I have definitely found the info here more helpful but now I'm concerned that maybe I am getting mixed messages.?? Is there something I should watch for?
thanks,

Kimberlee they are somewhat anti bcp protocol. At least that was my experience years ago. I haven't been to that site in at least 6 years.
