Abstract:

This talk provides a summary of the latest research on how mothers who are pumping for babies in the NICU can establish healthy milk production and maintain it long term. It includes strategies for estimating a mother’s breast storage capacity and using this information to individualize her pumping plan.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Summarize the research on milk ejection during pumping and how to incorporate it into our recommendations.

Objective 2: Identify when a larger or smaller diameter nipple tunnel could improve pumping results.

Objective 3: Recommend individualized pumping plans for women based on differences in breast storage capacities.
