Does anyone have any tips for expressing colostrum in pregnancy? Or any good videos which are about expressing colostrum specifically, rather than milk once breastfeeding is established?
Also, some advice with regards to the best gestation to start? I'm almost 31 weeks, and there is colostrum there. But I don't want to start too early.
Back story: My first baby never latched, and try as I might I could not get anything expressed on a hot, noisy, stressful ward. We ended up on formula.
I've got lots of good advice and support this time, so I'm hopeful this baby will take to feeding with no issues and frozen colostrum won't be required. But for peace of mind, I'd like to get some in the freezer if I can. I'm having a planned c-section, which is another factor.
So any help or advice appreciated.
