I want to breastfeed as long as possible. Is there any more flexible way to do this? What if I want to go out? What happens when I get back to work?
Don't worry, there are other practical ways to give your baby breast milk. You can milk your baby and give your baby a bottle. In this way, you can ensure that your baby can enjoy all the benefits of breast milk even when you are unable to continue breastfeeding.
Benefits of Milking
The most valuable gift you can give to your baby is undoubtedly breast milk. When you are not able to breastfeed, you can continue to give your baby this precious gift by milking your baby. This will ensure the continuity of your milk.
There are mothers who breastfeed their baby for a long time without having to express a single drop of milk. However, there are many other advantages besides the convenience and flexibility of milking. Let's have a look at these.
1- You may have returned to work and it is not possible to breastfeed your baby at any time.
2- Your baby's father, aunt, uncle or grandmother may want to enjoy the pleasure of feeding her.
3- You may have decided to spend long hours outside during the night.
In this way, even if you are not physically with your baby, your baby's breast milk can continue to feed.
4- If your baby is born too early / premature or is too sick to take the breast directly, you can express your milk and give him a very valuable milk called colostrum with a bottle. Colostrum is produced in the first days after birth, contains a large amount of protein, vitamins, minerals and is very important for the development of your baby's immune system.
5- If your newborn baby is unable to take your breasts to the mouth correctly, it may prevent milking from milking and thus no need to feed your mini with formulated milk. If you are having difficulty clinging to your breast, you should seek help from a connoisseur.
6- If your milk comes in and you feel your breasts are full but your baby is not ready to feed, a pump will be very savior. You can express your milk and store it for your baby when you need it.
Even though milking may seem difficult at first, it is actually quite easy. In time, you will see that you have never been forced. Unless your doctor advises otherwise, the best time to start expressing milk is a minimum of four to six weeks after birth. This will allow your baby to become accustomed to suckling.
Philips AVENT offers you two types of pumps, manual and electronic. Which one you use depends entirely on your personal preferences. Both products work quickly, precisely and quietly. Thanks to the patented five-leaf massage cushion and silicone diaphragm, the pumps provide the closest use to mothers like breastfeeding.
Using Philps AVENT pumps, you can store your milk in a refrigerator or freezer in an AVENT Feeding Bottle or pre-sterilized VIA storage containers. Avent storage containers and feeding bottles are often preferred by mothers because all products of Philips Avent are compatible. You can easily attach VIA storage containers or breast milk storage bottles to the pumps. This way you can deliver your milk directly to these storage systems without having to transfer it to another location. This way, you can store your milk in the refrigerator (freezer or coldest place) for 24 hours and in the freezer for 3 months. You can easily write the date and time on the VIA storage containers with a pencil.
If you wish to use the milk stored in the freezer that day, lower the milk container into the refrigerator and allow it to thaw slowly. If you need to use the milk from the freezer immediately, place the container in another container filled with hot water or use the AVENT Bottle Warmer. The Digital Baby Bottle and Food Warmer allows you to quickly and safely heat your baby's food. Its advanced technology automatically calculates the required warm-up time and the right temperature.
Remember that once you heat the milk, you should use it or discard it within the hour. Never store it for the next feed.
Remember the two most important situations that you and your baby are expressing your milk with a pump.
