Expressing BM helps to increase lactation as your body produces milk on demand. Once you empty your breast, either by feeding your baby or by expressing, your body makes more milk to meet the demand. You can express your BM and store and use it to feed your baby later. BM can be stored upto 6 hours at room temperature (24°c) or upto 6 months if frozen. If you wish to express, always do that before you BF your baby, your baby can suck much better & efficiently than any breast pump.
Hi gayathri. I understand what you are saying. But my in law says that everytime after i feed my baby she is telling me to express milk. She is saying from third month the demand will increase for baby and it won't be sufficient unless I express after everyfeed. Is it ture? I mean should i express after every feed?
If you try to express after a feed, you won't get any. Babies are the best 'machine' to extract BM , manually or using a breast pump will not give any result after your baby has drained the supply.
Thank you so much gayathri.
You are welcome Hema 👍👍
