This log can be used to track how often you are pumping and how much milk you are expressing. Remember that pumping should not be painful. See the link below for tips on pumping more effectively.
Applying a nipple shield correctly is necessary to have success using this tool. Nipple shields can be used to help coax a primarily bottle fed baby to feed at breast, help a preterm baby create suction, assist with SNS feedings, and protect damaged nipples during the healing process.

Click the button above to watch a paced bottle feeding.
