The Do’s & Don’ts of Pumping

Pumping: The Do’s and Don’ts You Need to Know!

Navigating the world of pumping can be quite a journey, and knowing the right tips can make all the difference. Here are some crucial do’s and don’ts for a successful pumping experience:

👍🏾 DO pump every 3 hours for 30 minutes during the first 12 weeks to establish a solid supply.

👍🏾 DO use a customizable primary pump to ensure your supply is strong and consistent.

👍🏾 DO wash your pump parts after each use or consider having extra parts on hand for convenience.

❌ DON’T pump every 2 hours – it can strain your body and unsustainable over time.

❌ DON’T rely solely on a wearable pump if you’re aiming for a robust milk supply as they tend to not empty like traditional flanges

❌DON’T recommend the fridge hack as it can increase the growth of bacteria (visit our fridge hack story highlight to learn more).

❌ DON’T mix breast milk at different temperatures as it can increase the growth of bacteria.

❌DON’T support pumping while pregnant or harvest colostrum as it can cause pre-term labor and/or miscarriage.
