Breast pumping to increase milk supply

kali ni entry ni utk puan-puan sahaja ye....tuan-tuan baca je boleh lah, utk nk tambahkan pengetahuan...=)
mamasue cukup berminat psl cara-cara utk increasekan breast milk supply ni....sapa yg tak suka kan klu susu tu byk je...pastu lama plak tu kite masih boleh breastfeed baby kite....
zaman kakak dhiya dulu, mamasue dpt pump smp kakak dhiya 8 bulan je...pastu rasa payah tul lah nak dpt 1oz pun, naik sakit n lenguh tangan-tangan sbb pump lama sgt...mata pun smp rasa nak juling sbb asyik dok tenung je botol pump tu awat la sket sgt yg nitik nih...
so this time, mamasue terasa nak try la pumping technique utk increasekan milk supply nih...1 person yg mamasue tau terror is mommalydzar. mamasue nak minta tlg kt momma lydzar perturunkan sket ilmu kat mamasue boleh x? nt mommalydzar emel-emel la kt mamasue mcm mana caranya eh? =)
dari apa yg mamasue search internet, ni artikel yg paling bagus :

  1. Pump both breasts simultaneously using a fully automated hospital grade electric pump.
  2. Increase the frequency of pumping times by shortening the interval between pumping times instead of increasing the duration of pumping (e.g., pump three times for 15-20 minutes versus two times for 30 minutes if you're away 8-10 hours). This way you're pumping about the same number of total minutes, but you're stimulating your breasts more frequently, which triggers milk production.
  3. Incorporate the "Massage-Stroke-Shake" (M-S-S) technique as taught by Chele Marmet, an LLL Leader and co-Director of the Lactation Institute in Encino, California, USA: Double-pump for 5 to 7 minutes. Stop. Massage both breasts simultaneously in a circular motion similar to a breast self-exam. Stroke both breasts all the way around from the chest wall to the tip of the nipple in a straight line using only your fingertips. Then cup each breast with your hand, lean forward, and gently shake your breasts. Repeat by pumping another 5-7 minutes and M-S-S. Finish by pumping 5-7 minutes.
    If your pump parts include a flange insert for a smaller areola, use the inserts for the middle pumping to stimulate the areola and the milk sinuses located behind the nipple. The hands-on, M-S-S technique stimulates an increase in prolactin levels, which in turn increases milk production.
    Mothers whom I've helped to use this technique report an increase in milk pumped in a short amount of time.
  4. Whenever you are with your son, breastfeed! There's nothing more effective in removing milk from your breast than your baby looking up at you, smiling, with milk dribbling from the sides of his mouth!
so, utk ibu-ibu yang breastfeeding at the moment, dan ibu-ibu yang expecting, mari lah kite sama-sama teruskan usaha dalam projek mega ibu-ibu nih...carry your breastpump to work everyday!

huhu namaku disebut2 disitu :D

actually tak la terror mana pon sue..kita pon tengah belajar2 gak lagi..

yang penting memang always kena stimulate breast tu supaya boleh keep on supplying. tau kan konsep bfeed is demand-supply. more demand so more supply.

kt opis kena pump at least 3kali sehari, no matter what. bz pon kena gak carik masa utk pam.

kt rumah pon sama, if baby lagi suka tidur, kita kena pam gak utk kosongkan breast. bila breast kosong baru la ada signal utk breast terus menghasilkan susu.

lagi satu tips, masa tengah susukan baby, elok jugak kita buat tandem pumping. sebelah nyusu baby, sebelah lagi pam..
