hand expression

how do you do this and not get milk everywhere? Long story short i forgot pump pieces at home and had to hand express but it was spraying everywhere. I had an avent manual with me but couldn't get the suction going?? So i tried expressing into the horn since it was wider but it still kept getting on my stomach, legs, and then would spray outside of the horn after 1 oz i finally just stopped but so frustrated b/c i could have pumped more than 1 oz had i had the pump pieces

Re: hand expression

I don't have a pump...I only hand express. I kinda lean forward, so it can't dribble down on me. It just goes right into the bag. With one hand I hold the bag open (holding under the zipper part) and the edges are up around my nipple. so all the spray is contained in the bag. If you change the way you are expressing, then the direction of the spray changes, too. HTH!
