1. Place your fingers and thumb
on opposite sides of your breast (eg your thumb on top and fingers underneath) not too close to the areola and nipple.
2. Gently squeeze
your breast when your baby is not actively sucking. This should get your baby actively sucking again.
3. Hold the compression
until your baby stops actively sucking or stops sucking altogether.
until the breast compressions don’t make your baby actively suck again.
5. Change positions
by moving your thumb and fingers slightly to squeeze different parts of your breast.
6. Take care
not to disturb your baby’s attachment to the breast.
