Hand Expression

Every breastfeeding mom needs to learn to hand express her milk because:

  • It reduces breast fullness
  • Soften the breasts
  • Make it easier for the milk to flow
  • Increases milk supply

Expressing your milk gets easier with practice. Don’t be discouraged if you can only express a small amount in the first few days.
