How to Manually Expressed the Breastmilk???

Have u ever faced having breast engorged but you could not expressed it out?? No electricity maybe?Atau time pergi training bawak pump tapi takde plug point?? No longer a big issue kalau pump boleh pakai battery kan! Tapi kalau ada pump canggih skali pun, tapi tk bawak part yg sepatutnye macam akak ni, tak gune ;) It happened to me yesterday, bila bangun pagi kelam kabut, time tu baru nak packing botol dan sebagainye. Alih2 morning session nak pump..adehh???Mane plak breast shield ni???waaaa!!!

Nmpk tak corong yg tak complete tu???Itulah yg den lupo nak amik???

Anyone who followed me thru twitter knew how much I suffered yesterday.

This is not my first time facing this. The first time when Adam was 3 mos, breast dah engorged, but time tu no power supply. Time Adam jgak, masa belum dapat mini-E, the whole the day I was at UM and did not bring the spectra pump. Adeh sakit macam nak menjerit!! Again after almost 3years experience, I decided to manual pump out the breast milk. 

The 5oz milk managed to be expressed out!
Kurang sket sakit!

Balik keje, Mr Hubby helped to bring that part. 
Alhamdulillah, at least ada fs boleh direct pump dalam keta. ;)

Again, thanks Nadine for remind me to google for marmet technique. Tho it was after I expressed out manually, I'm still wonder how's the technique all about. Sebelum ni pernah dengar and baca sekilas pandang about this technique, tp tak sangka I have to face this things again. Mommies, have a look, mana tahu emergency, boleh try guna. After baca teknik marmet ni, actually lebih kurang with what  I did to manual pump the breastmilk yesterday. Happy reading gals!!


Draining the Milk Reservoirs

1. Position the thumb (above the nipple) and first two fingers (below the nipple) about 1” to 1–1/2” from the nipple, though not necessarily at the outer edges of the areola. Use this measurement as a guide, since breasts and areolas vary in size from one woman to another. Be sure the hand forms the letter “C” and the finger pads are at 6 and 12 o’clock in line with the nipple. Note the fingers are positioned so that the milk reservoirs lie beneath them. Avoid cupping the breast

2. Push straight into the chest wall
  • Avoid spreading the fingers apart.
  •  For large breasts, first lift and then push into the chest wall

3. Roll thumb and fingers forward at the same time. This rolling motion compresses and empties milk reservoirs without injuring sensitive breast tissue.

Note the position of thumb and fingernails during the finish roll as shown in the illustration.

4. Repeat rhythmically to completely drain reservoirs.
    ~~ Position, push, roll...repeat!

5. Rotate the thumb and fingers to milk other reservoirs, using both hands on each breast.

  Avoid These Motions

1. Do not squeeze the breast, as this can cause bruising.

2. Sliding hands over the breast may cause painful skin burns.

3. Avoid pulling the nipple which may result in tissue damage.

mommynadia said...

tp yelah,we shud thanks the technology,kalau perah pakai tgn,mmg ak ramai working mother survive to exclusively bf kan!!

owh ye ke,shud get info bout that.bnyk menda nk ingat n bnyk benda mudah lupa skrng!

mommynadia said...

sriously, fs kua sket bunyi pada spectra but much slower compared to mini e.

kak nadia pakai mini e boleh dpt 8oz mase pntg skali pump for 1 side.kak nadia rs not bcos of pump.

aty bnyk df kan, so aty kena cr mase untuk tgh malam kerapkan pump from 12 to 6 morning. kalau bgn pagi after baby dah df,terus pump clearkan breast.
kalau aty mmg bnyk df,dpt 4oz skali pump shud b ok dah,as long aty kena kerapkan pumping for 1 day.maybe 3-4 times.for stock purpose.

goodluck darl!

I am also an FS user. Memang. Pernah tertinggal breastshield sekali, back caps sekali, bottle caps ... 2 kali kot. Now, I will make sure that I have assembled them all before leaving home to ensure that none is left behind.
