When we think about expressing, the first thing which pops into most mum's minds is a breast pump. Whilst breast pumps are a great tool and most mums will use one at some point in their breastfeeding journey, there is another little magical trick you can have up your sleeve which can be a saviour in so many situations!
How to Hand Express
- Start by washing your hands, and collecting something to express into. If you are expressing whilst pregnant, or in the first day or two you may find expressing straight into a small syringe is most effective, If not use a clean cup/bottle.
- Using the same hand as breast (if expressing from right breast, use right hand), make a C shape with your thumb and fingers
