In this course, mothers will learn about the different ways they can express milk from their breasts and how to prepare bottles. After your first year of breastfeeding, you are more than likely ready for more independence or may need to start making bottles because you are busier or going back to work. Whatever the cause, it is important that all mothers have this useful tool in their breastfeeding journey.
In the first lesson, we will talk about how to safely and effectively get milk from your breasts. There are plenty of tools that you may find helpful, such as your hands (hand expression), manual pumps, or electric pumps. Regardless of what you use, you must be able to confidently pump milk from your breasts to be stored or used on the go.
In the second lesson, mothers will learn all about how to store milk and prepare bottles. It is important to understand how to store milk safely and effectively. This also includes an overview of how to store milk in the refrigerator vs. in the freezer and how to give milk that has been pumped directly to your baby. Lastly, mothers will learn how to bring this milk with them on the go!
