1- Compression and massage while pumping increases output and helps treat plugged ducts.

2- Buy a hands free bra. If you are going to be spending a lot of time pumping, buying a hands free bra will free you up to do other tasks or allow you to relax while pumping.

3- Love really gets the milk flowing. Remember why you are pumping and be sure to think about that special little one while pumping to help with let down.

4- Stay hydrated to keep up your supply. Hydration is really important for nursing mothers as it aids in milk production.

5- Use an all natural nipple balm before pumping to ease with the rubbing action and after pumping to to hep with any pain or soreness.

6- Invest in a good pump. A cheap pump can cause damage, low supply and mastitis for lack of emptying.

7- Relax. Stress can hinder your body's natural ability to release milk.

8- Stronger suction does not always mean more milk. Be sure to start at a lower suction and work your way up as necessary.

9- Stick to a routine. Not necessarily the same time, but the same habits: the place, the chair, the beverage, etc. This will help condition your milk to flow. (this is slightly different than nursing on demand)

10- Don't shake the breast milk, swirl the breast milk. While there is a bit of controversy surrounding this subject, you can find the articles we consulted here, here and here. When you shake the breastmilk, you denature the molecules and break up the protein into parts. When the proteins remain intact, they help protect the lining of the babies gut and eliminate bubbles that may produce gas. So while we don't have a definitive answer, we are going to swirl our breastmilk.

Pumping and more specifically exclusively pumping is hard work.  Pumping, washing, transferring milk, freezing, thawing, and rotating your stash takes a lot of time and effort.  Enter the Kiinde Twist.

The Kiinde Twist™ feeding system allows you to directly pump from ANY pump into breastmilk storage pouches with leak-proof, twist-locking caps. You can then label, organize, store, warm, and feed from that same pouch - without ever having to transfer precious breast milk from bottles to bags.

You can feed directly from Kiinde Twist Pouches using the Kiinde Squeeze natural feeding bottle, eliminating the need to transfer milk from bottles to bags and back again! Just snap the pouch directly into the Squeeze natural feeding bottle, squeeze the air out of the pouch, and pop the Active-Latch nipple on top!  

Our Favorite Thing About the Kiinde Twist?

Kiinde products are recyclable and are free of BPA, phthalates, and PVC.  It is safer and more sanitary than regular breast pumping and storage systems.   And the best part of all?  

You won't waste a drop of precious breast milk! 

Whether you pump occasionally or are an exclusive pumper, we think what you are doing is amazing!

Pumping is hard work.  Pumping takes dedication.  

To celebrate all the pumping mamas out there, we are launching Pump It Up.  For the next two weeks we will be posting pumping tips, sharing our favorite pumping products, and offering encouragement, support and a little humor to all the pumping mamas out there!  And of course, what's a celebration without a HUGE Giveaway?!

To kick off the New Year we wanted to introduce some of our favorite Undercover Mama approved products for Nursing, and Pumping, moms.  

-All breastfeeding mothers need nursing pads. Bamboobies Nursing Pads are our favorite Nursing Pads – the only ones with a milk-proof backing and ultra-soft bamboo rayon and organic cotton velour.  They don't feel cold and clammy when we, and they are reusable so you will save a lot of money over disposables.   

-New mothers often suffer from sore and cracked nipples in the first few weeks.  Boob♥ease nipple balm is non-toxic, organic nipple balm that doesn’t need to be washed off before feeding like Lanolin does. This balm is amazing and keeps your nipples feeling soft and has healing power!

-The Bamboobies Brahhh is a maternity, sleep and nursing bra.  It is so soft and stretchy, made with certified organic cotton, spandex and bamboo rayon.  It has tapered straps that don’t fall down and offer easy pull-aside nursing access which is a necessity for tired nursing mamas.

-We love bamboo and oranic cotton, in case you haven't noticed.  The Bamboobies Nursing Shawl is a cute and practical way to cover up and it is made of that incredible soft fabric!

-At different times, most breastfeeding moms could use a little boost in their milk supply, not to mention a sweet treat. Milkmakers are lactation cookies can help promote an abundant supply of breast milk.  They are delicious and contain oats, brewer’s yeast, and flax seed can help increase breast milk production.  As moms we are busy and these cookies are perfect to help ensure you are getting what you need to keep your milk supply up.

-Pumpin Pal is a lifesaver for any Pumping Mom.  There are a number of amazing benefits from using the Super Shied angled Flanges but our favorites: milk ducts are less contricted which means less plugged ducts,  better flow and less irritation around the nipple.  If you are a pumping mama, you need these!
