More interesting clips: hand expressing

While we’re on the topic of interesting clips online, I am just loving all the fanta-bulous resources there are out there in cyberspace.  Of course, you have to take the wheat with the chaff, so there’s always a fair amount of rubbish to wade through, but we’ll keep posting interesting clips we find that might help mums with new babies.

Today’s clip is about hand expressing.  Hand expressing is a really useful tool for breastfeeding mothers for general expressing, for getting a little bit of breastmilk onto the end of your nipple to tempt baby to open wide, to soften breasts that are engorged with milk, and to express off a little at night if your breasts wake you (while baby slumbers happily on).

Over the coming weeks we will be posting more on feeding.  Let us know if there are any topics in particular you would be interested in 🙂
