Hope this article helps you in finding one for you. But please know that a pump is a practical approach to expressing milk. Expressing milk is more to do with an emotional drive that accelerates breast feeding. Follow these steps for a let down which will maximize the milk flow.

  • Hand express before your use the pump. The pump wouldn’t struggle with letdown reflex.
  • Pump at the same time everyday.
  • Milk flow is highest during mornings when you wake up. Do pumping then. You can also check for a fault in pump during this time.
  • There should be a good gap between your last feeding session and pumping.
  • Do not make pumping the only way to express milk because if you stop feeding your baby directly it would definitely reduce the natural milk supply after 2-3 weeks.
  • It is normal for one breast to produce more milk than the other breast.
  • Switch your breasts every 5 mins. Each breast should get a stimulation of 10-15 mins.
  • You can keep pump expressed milk at room temperature for 4 to 6 hours and can be refrigerated for about 5 days.
