My baby is 6 days old. she has slight jaundice. My breast milk sometimes leak n bcos my baby keeps falling asleep while sucking I need to pump n save it for her later. So how do I pump while lying down or sleeping?
can buy a hands free bra. its a good investment. think some mummies are selling here. i am using it and its great! free your hands to do things or rest your hands dont need to keep holding the bottles.
Hi andieluv2 ,
Hands free bra? When I use my hand to pump I have to press the suction very hard into my breast in order to get good suction n not leak to the side. Using hands free bra can prevent the leak sideways? Thanks
I find that I need sit up straight or else the milk will leak out of suction cup into my breast is my pump no good or what?
you definitely need to sit upright in order to pump irregardless what brand of pump you using.
Yes I agree .. Sit up n pump will be betters
how old is your newborn now?? Mine today is 6 days which I notice she also latch till fall asleep. So I sometime just wake her n conti feed her.. If not awhile later will make noise lei..
Btw I using medela freestyle, I find it not bad ..
Which pump you using btw??
what pump are you using? i am using medela PISA. freestyle also not bad. it is handsfree by itself but the spare parts eg valves is ex. so if its faulty or you need extra set, it will cost more to get them. i heard from many mummies that PISA's suction is stronger than freestyle which works great for me. PISA is not hands free so you need to use hand to hold. or else you can use hands free bra to hold the breast shield in plc.Originally Posted by lovepixie:734425
i have attached a pict of the handsfree bra i am using. you are suppose to sit up nahz. but relax. try not to be so tense if not i realise it will affect let down too. so far the hands free bra had serve me well. my nxt pregnancy will sure get 1 too.
I have Avent manual and little bean automatic pump (gift).
if ya using a manual pump then think the hands free bra defeats the purpose. its more for electric pump. have you consider investing in a good dual electric pump if you are using often? manual pump can be time consuming and tiring.Originally Posted by lovepixie:735541
Even cows have to stand to be milked ...hehe...
If you have the extra $$$ get freestyle.. you can lean back and relax while the pump does its job. Occasionally you just need to massage to stimulate more milk. That's all.
thanks for the recommendation. I'll go try at the stores before purchasing.
I using freestyle.. But I find that sit up stimulAte milk faster.. After feeding 1 hour I pump for 10 min like that for both side only ... Then I left abit to feed my newborn later..
Agreed that need to sit straight to pump .
I have both freestyle n Pisa n both r good :-)
when i pump i also sit straight, i really agree .:_)
