I am a mom of 2months baby boy. I am facing problem regarding my baby’s milk. Whether he is taking enough milk from my feed. Can anyone tell how much ml milk is required for a 70days baby?

Secondly i want to ask about breast pump. Someone told me that electronic pump is harmful for the mother.As i am a working lady and now i hv to be on work from next week so anyone can suggest me about electronic or manual pump.and how long i can keep the extracted milk?

Your responses will be appreciated. Thanks

If your baby is sleeping atleast for an hour or 2 at a stretch he is taking good feed. Also if he is weight gain is proper then he is taking enough milk. Electronic pump is good option as you are going to join work.

Thanks Rebecca, wht is the best time to use pump and extract milk. and for how long i can keep that milk? Can i warm tht milk again and again?

Early mornings they say good time to pump but being a working women you do whenever you get time.. Initially the outcome will be little, do not pump more than 20 mins from one side and give a gap of 5 to 10 mins before pumping from other side. The extracted milk can be kept in room temperature for maximum 4 hrs as its summer time.. If its refrigerator 24 hrs and you have to bring it to room temp no need to heat. Just put the bottle in; warm water filled utensils, once taken out feed of its remaining throw away. Always taste the milk before giving.

Thanks for ur response. 😘
