My Mood:
I also expressed before Paxton was born saved the colostrum in little colostrum vials to give him to help his blood sugars after birth. Let me know if you want a tiny vial or two to fill I have hundreds and they are less daunting to fill than even a 1-2oz container when your expressing 5-8 drops at a time.

Anything you can express by hand is fine after 34 weeks just don't stimulate the nipple area too much.

After 39 weeks you can use a pump.

My milk came in on day 3.5-4 instead of day 5-6 like previous pregnancies this was my third.

I also pumped and syringe fed in the hospital whenever baby was sleepy.
Mommy to Patrick 05/19/05, Parker 11/20/09 and Paxton Arrived 2/14/13, Penelope 5/29/14
