NICU pearl: Cover the containers during pumping to make more milk

with one comment

When mothers are initiating and maintaining lactation by expressing milk with a pump, cover the containers with a towel, a receiving blanket etc. When the moms stop staring at the bottles and counting every drop they are often surprised to see how much more milk they express. – Kathie Marinelli and Mary Lussier, Connecticut

ABM’s protocol on the NICU graduate going home offers evidence-based guidelines for supporting breastfeeding for NICU infants.

At ABM’s 2010 Intenational Meeting, members from around the world submitted their breastfeeding clinical pearls and mythbusters. We’ll be sharing the Top Ten winners on the blog this week. Clinical pearls reflect the opinions of individual ABM members, not the organization as a whole.
