We talk about the advantages of breast milk and how essential it is for mothers to feed their infants this marvellous food. However, we sometimes overlook that breastfeeding may not always be possible for some mothers. For mothers who need to be away from their infants, the breast pump is a blessing.
A breast pump extracts milk from the breast, through the nipple, by stimulating milk production. The milk is collected in a container through a funnel placed on the breast around the nipple. There are many types and brands in the market, and mothers can choose between an electric and a manual pump.
Most of the mothers utilize a breast pump sooner or later during their breastfeeding time. A few ladies will use a pump once they return to work. Others may utilize it at times, and still, some might be expressing more often. Figuring out how to express milk can be an overwhelming procedure. These steps will set the mother and her infant up for progress.
As indicated by studies, breast milk can be stored in the freezer for as long as a year and in the fridge for eight days. Here are a few tips to remember while storing additional milk:
It is better not to let a setback with breastfeeding affect the mother. Hence, using a breast pump and giving her baby breast milk is extremely beneficial. The quantity of milk a mother pumps is never a reliable indicator of how much milk she is secreting. It cannot indicate how much milk her child is getting during breastfeeding itself. A healthy breastfed baby is almost always more efficient at drawing milk from the breast than a pump.
