Why express milk?
Moms can choose to express milk for several reasons, including:
1.There may be various reasons in life that you may not be able to breastfeed your baby in time. The biggest advantage of breast pump is that your baby can benefit from your milk when you're not around. For example, when a mother returns to work, travels, or is separated from her baby for other reasons, using a breast pump to deliver and store breast milk is convenient, even necessary.Families can use stored breast milk to feed their children.
2.Expressing milk, you can clearly know the amount of milk produced, and you can also determine the amount of milk your baby eats per meal, and you can see the changes in the amount of milk your baby drinks, so as to avoid the baby choking on the milk too fast or the baby not getting enough to eat.
3.The baby will not take too long to feed each time, sucking is effective, and will not develop the habit of biting the nipple to sleep. When the baby touches the bottle first, it will be easier to wean later, and the baby will not resist the bottle.
4.It is easier to judge whether the breast is emptied by expressing milk. Empty breasts can reduce the pain caused by breast enlargement and will not affect milk production.
5.The baby's sucking may bite the mother's nipple, which can easily cause inflammation and lead to forced termination of breastfeeding.
6.The mother does not need to feed the baby anytime and anywhere, and does not have to keep the same position for a long time, causing back pain and leg pain.
