Pumping While Nursing

Pumping while nursing can be an easy way to collect milk. At first it may seem awkward, but with practice, it gets much easier!

1) Set up pump first, so it’s ready.

2) Latch baby

3) Place pump and turn on.

Steps 2 and 3 can be reversed if it’s easier for mom to do it that way, but many moms find it easier to place pump on with one hand vs getting baby latched “one handed”.
