Video About Pumping and Storing Breast Milk

by Viktoriya

A note from BreastfeedingQuest: Another video from Gerber - nicely-done! One thing that I want to draw your attention to is when they say to pump every 4 hours at work. If your situation and work environment allow, I would do it more often - at least as often as the baby would nurse.

This is the video that helped me learn how to pump and store breast milk. It is a bit long, but it covers many important topics: pumping milk, let-down, operating a pump, storage guidelines (where and for how long).

The demonstration is done on a pump that I used - Medela. It is a double electric pump that allowed me to pump both breasts at the same time. I also tried manual and single electric pumps of different brands, but they failed to extract milk from my breasts. This one worked! And if a mother plans on returning to work, this pump will work the best.

The amount of milk that a mother will be able to pump varies. I was pumping at work together with some other ladies in the room. We all had the same pumps. Many ladies pumped quicker and more milk. It took me 20-25 minutes to pump 6-8 ounces.

This video also covers storing and thawing guidelines. It seems too thorough at times, so this video is best for first-time moms with no experience in nursing.

Here is this video. Hope it will help someone the way it helped me 2 years ago!
