Post for Baby

Collection and storage of Milk

Generally, most breast pumps allow for the milk to be collected directly into bottles, which  may be stored and later fed to a baby by bottle. This milk can be kept at room temperature for up to six hours and  refrigerated for at least 8 days.  In some cases, travelling or working Moms freezes milk for up to 12 months. Expressed milk may be kept at room temperature for up to six hours.

Manual breast pumps

These are operated by squeezing or pulling the handle repetitively.  By doing so, the Mom can controll how much milk is expressed at any given time.  This method can, in most cases be tiring for the Mother, and can only be done one breast at a time.

Electric breast pumps

Electric pumps are designed to be powered by a motor and has suctions that are attached to the breast allowing the milk to pass through plastic tubing.  This type of pump allows for faster pumping of milk from both breasts simultaneously, thus allowing the Mother more time for herself and baby.
