Hand expressing - with or without pumping

Hand expressing - with or without pumping

Best Practice for expressing milk long-term – “hands on pumping”
 
-         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.
