Skills of hand-expression

Alhamdulillah my nipps healed TAPI as we sent Sami to nursery on Wednesday, i need to use the pump to express and as i thought, the left nipp mengelupas balik eeeiii geram. Now i know what cause it. My what i called for the past year - new besfren - avent manual pump. errr actually not the real cause but it makes worse so i need alternative.

Tadaaa the idea is to express using my kuar2 urat hand. (sambil looking at my hands) duhhh they must hates me. i need lotion. Sorry tangan, dah lama xsapu lotion.

Camne? I do not know how. Need to learn. Quickly.

6 EASY (not sure easy or not, wait until i try) STEPS TO EXPRESS MILK FROM YOUR BREASTS BY HAND:
  1. Position your hand on your breast, with the thumb above and fingers underneath, about an inch to an inch-and-a-half behind the nipple. If your breast were a clock, your thumb would be at 12 o'clock and your fingers at 6 o'clock. Don't cup your breast in your hand. Instead, your thumb and fingers should be directly across the nipple from each other.
  2. Press your thumb and fingers directly back into the breast tissue, towards the wall of your chest. Don't move them further apart. Just press straight back into the breast.
  3. Roll your fingers and thumb forward to squeeze milk out of the milk sinuses, which are located under the areola behind the nipple. Don't slide the thumb or fingers along the skin--this will quickly make you sore.
  4. Repeat this sequence--position, press, roll--until the milk flow ceases. Then move your hand so that the thumb and fingers are positioned at 11 and 5 o'clock and do it again. Use both hands to work your way around one breast, then switch to the other side until you have emptied all of the milk sinuses. As soon as you see milk squirting from your nipple, you know you are compressing the underlying milk sinuses. (This position is also where baby's gums should be during efficient latch-on.)
  5. The trick to hand expression is discovering where to position your fingers. Experiment until you find the right spot. Having someone show you how is very helpful, too.
  6. Combining hand-expression with breast massage can be a very effective way to stimulate the milk-ejection reflex. Massage first, then express. Massage again, and repeat the hand- expressing routine.
OK. Macam senang TAPI i know its hard. Harder than u think. Know why? Even if u r using a very hi-tech pump (u gonna amazed how breastpump can be so hi-tech and expensive) u not gonna get good result as all these need concentration and skill. SAIKO2
Avoid These Motions
  • Do not squeeze the breast, as this can cause bruising.
  • Sliding hands over the breast may cause painful skin burns.
  • Avoid pulling the nipple which may result in tissue damage. (hahahaha nih breastfeeding bukan nipplefeeding)
Dah pektis sikit2. Tomorrow nk start la .. huishh seram gak first time nih.
"Hand expression should not hurt! If it does, you may be pressing too hard"
"We often turn to the most technologically advanced items, when simpler methods would work just as well, or even better in many cases"
