Breast pump makes it ideal for working women who have to go away to work soon after delivering the baby and still would like to breast feed their baby. Breast pump helps to express the milk out of the breast so that it can be fed in the mother’s absence.
Breast pumps are sold in all baby care shops and stores, and there are several brands available today. All breast pumps come with detailed instructions about how to use them. There are some simple tips every mother can follow before expressing breast milk so that it is easy and effortless of them to do that.
Before expressing the milk through breast pump you could gently massage your breast so that it softens up and the breasts do not seem hard. When you use the pump, it will be less painful and also the milk will flow out effortlessly. When you put the breast pump, it automatically sucks the milk out of the breast and fills it into the bottle. You could transfer the breast milk into storage devices and keep it in the refrigerator. However, one should remember that breast milk cannot be stored for more than 24 hours and it has to be disposed after that. Actually doctors advice that the breast milk should be used within 3 to 4 hours of expressing it because it is better for the baby. In case you want to use it after 4 hours, then it should be frozen in the refrigerator and even after freezing it should be used within 24 hours.
