- Have a photo of your baby, so that you can focus on your little one, instead of the machine
- Massage the breast or apply a warm pack
- Hand express to start the flow [SeeYouTube videos – links below]
- If using a machine pump, apply the well-fitting pump flange, making sure to centre your nipple so it won’t rub against the side.
