Breast Milk

Pumping and storing breast milk allows breastfeeding mums to have a supply of milk for their babies when it is needed. This can be a good option for mums who return to work after having a baby. What do you guys think? )))

Hi Favor, proper planning, support, and the correct equipment can help breastfeeding mums continue to breastfeed, even after returning to work outside the home. Because most often it is not so easy to manage everything at once.

Hello friends/women, I will like to talk a little about breast milk. Milk is made in small, sac-like glands in the breast. Hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, prolactin, and lactogen tell these sacs to grow and develop. This process starts during the second trimester of pregnancy. The human breast does not store a large amount of milk. Your breasts will make new milk with every feeding.

Hi Gift1, also suckling causes mother's body to release a hormone called prolactin. This hormone tells her body to make milk. It also causes the release of oxytocin, a hormone that triggers the let-down reflex. The milk moves out of the milk gland, into the milk ducts, and into the nipples.

Hey Jerry, during every feeding, the breast milk changes. At the beginning of the feeding, the milk is bluish and contains lactose and proteins, but little fat. Such milk is called foremilk. The end of the feeding produces hindmilk. The hindmilk contains more fat, the main source of energy for the baby.

It is important to note that, before returning to work, mothers need to establish their milk supply and breastfeeding skills. Your baby also needs time to develop his/her breastfeeding skills. These tips will help you maintain your supply of breastmilk:
-Breastfeeding or pumping on a regular schedule
-Drinking plenty of fluids
-Eating healthy
-Getting plenty of rest

It is good that, once the mother and her baby have a steady breastfeeding pattern, introduce your baby to bottle feeding with pumped breast milk. This allows plenty of time to establish good feeding habits. Do not start before your baby is 3 - 4 weeks old. If you plan on using stored milk, it is best to only breastfeed when you are with your baby in the evening and on weekends. Buy or rent a breast pump at least 2 weeks before going back to work. Start building up a supply of frozen milk.

After returning to work, you will need to pump milk 2 to 3 times a day. As the baby gets older, you may be able to reduce the frequency of pumping, and still keep up your supply. An ideal workplace will provide a private room for breastfeeding mums, with a comfortable chair and an electric breast pump for use by all nursing mothers. If possible, arrange to nurse your baby at lunch time too.

As a mum, you may need to give your baby a bottle of formula if you do not get enough breaks or cannot pump a full day's worth of milk in one session. However, formula feeding lowers the baby's need for breast milk. Your milk supply will also decrease. Every day, nurse your baby right before leaving in the morning and right when you return home from work. You may find that your baby nurses more often in the evenings on the days you work. Feed on-demand when you are with your baby.

Now there are a number of breast pumps on the market. Pumps may be hand-operated (manual) or work by battery or electricity. Personal models that are easy to carry are available for purchase. You should find the type that is comfortable for you to use and allows you to collect your breast milk in a reasonable period of time.
