The treasure mom with little milk, use a breast pump to help increase the amount of milk, the baby ate one side to be full, still can suck another side to be soft, especially go out also not afraid of milk to rise, can be said to be discharge milk artifact, because the breast does not need to save milk.
In special cases, if the doctors advised mother to temporarily stop breastfeeding, for example, because mom is taking drugs may be harmful to the baby, or need short-term hospitalization, so in the mother can’t give the baby breastfeeding during this time, use the breast pump to suck out the milk, can continue to help maintain sufficient milk secretion.

Correct use of breast pump in three different situations
1. Early maternal and infant separation. You know, the breast pump is certainly not a milk opening tool, so in the baby has not directly sucked the mother’s nipple when the use of breast pump, the risk is still very high. If there are some special circumstances after the birth that cause the separation of mother and baby, then the first consideration is whether to seek help from the hospital, whether it is possible to provide a medical-grade breast pump, and the best way to open milk and collect colostrum with massage hands.
The suction device that buys on the market, write to be suitable for 4-6 weeks after giving birth mostly. The main reason is the newborn sucking way and the baby born for a long time impasse , plus the new mother postpartum also cannot secrete milk in large quantities, so the colostrum volume is very small, and thick, at this point it is necessary to use the gauge sucking device, those difficult to discharge the milk of the breast discharge, let the breast form from the circulation, thus accelerating the milk. But when you start using a breast pump, you may feel pain in your nipples and breasts, or even edema. So do not use a breast pump too early, the best in the mother’s milk can be normal secretion, and then gradually began to use a breast pump to stimulate lactation, at the same time can be squeezed out of the milk retained for the child to eat.
2. Carry milk to work. This time, in fact, the mother’s lactation are relatively stable, the breast pump can also adapt to compare good, mom at the beginning, don’t too mind when using a breast pump production breast to adapt to a new kind of lactation stimulation is certainly need time, don’t cry because it is not ideal in yield can increase the intensity of pumping and extend the using time, this would not significantly increase the amount of milk, may make the breast were injured.
3. Excessive production. Too much milk is also a painful thing, many mothers because of fear that the milk is not empty will cause is silting, causing mastitis, they continue to use a breast pump to suck, this additional stimulation, we are not advocated, this will lead to the mother of prolactin secretion disorders, milk production continues to rise, lead to milk, the formation of a vicious circle .In fact, under this situation, the mother should adjust the frequency of the use of the breast pump according to their own feelings, try not to suck the breast to a soft drop of milk did not give the degree, to maintain the degree of ease and comfort, to achieve the balance between supply and demand.
Use and cleaning of breast pump
