In our efforts to remove fat from the breastmilk we feed our LPLD baby, Teresa, we started with just pouring a few 8 oz bottles into a larger bowl, covering it, and letting it sit overnight in the fridge. Then in the morning, we used a large flat ladle to scoop off that fat, leaving as much breastmilk behind as possible, and using that 'skimmed' milk to give to our baby while I was at work. It worked well, and I hope to provide numbers someday as to how well, exactly, it works.
But then our breastmilk separator arrived from the Ukraine. The more expensive an object is and effort required, the better the product should be, right? Well, the instructions were mostly unintelligible, so luckily Amazon pointed us in the direction of youtube, and, lo and behold, there are great, simple instructions for use on youtube, my favorite of which is here, produced by none other than Slavic Beauty. Hmm. Of course.
