Expressing must begin with the day of breast milk began to arrive and continue up until the child begins to gain weight evenly.It is important to express the remaining milk if the baby sucks bad or sluggish, or if the milk comes out of my chest with difficulty, and in the case when lactating women it is not enough.Every drop of breastmilk increases its amount the next day and facilitates breastfeeding.

Most babies do not need human milk, therefore without purpose

doctor it should not be given to the kid.If a nursing mother faithfully and regularly expressing her milk, the baby every day sucks all the better, usually within 6-8 weeks, it can be stopped.

Expressing provides regular and complete emptying of the breast and in the event that for any reason, can not breast feed your baby, such as premature and frail children are not able to suck or if breastfeeding is necessary to temporarily refrain izdue to illness of the child or the mother, and so on. d.

express milk is necessary and in the case w

hen a nursing mother it a lot, as this procedure in this case helps to prevent stagnation, or painful knots formed in the mammary glands.This is especially true of women with abundant secretion of milk.So, they have painful nodes are usually formed on the 3-4th day after birth, when the milk begins to flow from the chest under the pressure, but it does not mean that it must immediately express.The mammary gland is sensitive, but if the mother regularly feeding your baby breast, painful swelling usually disappears without treatment within 1-2 days.If it lasts longer, it's a sign of stagnation of milk and we must begin to express it.If the passage of time painful nodes remain after feeding, it is necessary to express her milk, otherwise it may be inflammation of the breast (mastitis).By the way, we have already talked about chest pain during feeding, especially in the first

first days following birth, it passes very quickly.But we must not confuse these feelings with the pain caused by the stagnation of milk.

should express milk in the case of breast inflammation, which begins with the increase, and then suppuration painful knots.On the causes of the inflammation we have already said, but it bears repeating that it is often caused by failure to comply with hygiene rules or engorgement.The disease is accompanied by fever and chills.

A nursing mother should know and remember that pumping milk is an essential condition for the prevention and treatment of breast inflammation.

At the first suspicions of breast inflammation is necessary to consult a doctor to prevent the disease in its very early.In addition to medications, your doctor may prescribe wraps, bed rest is necessary.The nipple and the area around it is necessary to keep dry, otherwise cracks may form.Inflammation of the mammary gland is necessary to bandage.

for successful and rapid cure is necessary to continue breastfeeding and express milk regularly.It is possible to feed the sick and feeding, but if it stands out from pus or blood-feeding should be stopped, and the milk from it decant.

When to express milk?It is best to perform immediately after the feeding of the pumping of the

breast to which you applied the child.If he sucked from both, then you first need to express milk from the one that took the first baby.Each pumping milk should last at least 20-25 minutes, and it can not be stopped, even if during the first minutes of the milk only flows drop by drop, because the more copious sometimes begins in 10-15 minutes.

How long to express milk?It always depends on the reasons for decanting.If it is carried out to increase the amount of milk it lasts no more than 6-8 weeks.During this time, the baby becomes more strong and could have sucked all the milk itself.Longer need to express milk in the event that a child born prematurely or with any birth defects, if the baby is very weak or sick.In all these cases it is necessary to express the milk as long as the child does not become strong enough to be able to suck well.If your baby for any reason (for example, due to illness) sucks worse or if the mother is temporarily decreased the amount of milk, it is necessary to express it as long as the baby starts sucking again well.When a nursing woman running and reimburse expressed milk per feeding, it is necessary to continue pumping until weaning.

If mother's milk more than you need the kid, and stagnation causes the formation of painful knots, it is necessary to decant just enough to come

relief because excessive pumping only increases the secretion of milk, which is already available in abundance.

Expressing shown and if there is leakage mother's milk, for example, while the baby sucks a breast of another at the same time stands out milk, and sometimes in the first week of both milk glands can be allocated between feedings.If you do regular pumping, leakage normally stops after a few weeks

now proceed directly to the pumping equipment.To do this, you can choose a convenient way of the procedure described below.It should be remembered that this procedure must necessarily begin with the implementation of the rules: you need to wash your hands thoroughly.

Expressing hand.One mammary gland should be put on the palm and gently massage all areas.Supporting four fingers below the breast, press it with your thumb in the direction from the edge of the nipple, slightly pulling the breast forward.At the same time you can not touch the nipple, so as not to damage it.To completely empty the chest, thumb and index finger should be moved clockwise.Milk fed dropwise first and then a trickle.When decanting, do not push on the prostate much pain.The mammary gland has four main channels, and therefore usually enters the milk from the nipple four streams simultaneously.

very important that pumping was performed in a uniform pace, rhythmic movements, as if sucked child.

Many women express milk in one hand and the other hand holding the bottle or glass.In some cases it is better to express milk with both hands and put on a glass tray on the nipple level.When milk is collected in the bottle, then it is necessary to insert funnel.

can use for this procedure and the glass breast pump, models of which are now in a great variety of stores.They can be mechanical, and electrical, the choice is yours.

However, with the help of a breast pump is possible to decant the bulk of the milk and finally emptied the chest can only express her milk residues by hand.

There is another fairly easy way of pumping the milk, the so-called method of "warm the bottle."Some moms prefer it, since experience shows that it is less traumatic and easy to use, if pumping by hand or using a breast pump for some reason painfully.

So, you need to take a bottle with a wide neck and pour hot water into it, and then give a warm glass of water to a temperature in the container.Then the water should be poured, the neck of the bottle to cool rapidly and attach to the halo accordance

girdle so that the bottle tightly closed.Thus there arises a vacuum because of which the mammary gland in the bottle begins to empty.Such decanting procedure can be repeated several times, expressed milk pouring into a clean bottle.I would like to add that the commercially available anatomical and special bottles that are convenient for expressing milk in this way and to store it.

With regard to the storage of expressed milk, then each portion must be collected in a separate bowl and soaking for a while in a sealed container at room temperature.

When the milk is cooled, it can be put in the refrigerator, but it is not stored for more than 10 hours. These recommendations will preserve the healing properties of breast milk, so necessary as the baby fell ill or weakened, and the child, whose mother works.
