What does it mean to express milk by hand?
2 doctor answers • 3 doctors weighed in
Pediatrics 36 years experience
Pumping by hand: Hand expressing means pumping milk from a breast without using a pump. The woman takes a warm shower or applies a warm cloth to her breast for a few minutes. Then she massages her breast by encircling her breast with both hands at the chest wall and slowly squeezing the breast in towards the nipple. After a couple of minutes, the breast will start discharging milk and this can caught in a cup.

8c of any liquids: The typical recommended amount of fluid to take in daily is around 8 cups. That includes water, milk, juice, other beverages & liquid from foods like fruit. Thirst indicates too little. The ideal varies from day to day depending on heat, activity, etc. However, most women should try to drink a cup at and between each meal/snack and at bedtime to keep the fluid level steady, especially if pregnant.

A 39-year-old male asked:
Why is my right thumb numb?

Numb thumb: There too many possibilities to discuss in 400 characters. The nerve pathway goes from your brain through your neck and down your arm to your thumb. The problem could be anywhere along the way. It could be as simple as pressure on the digital nerve from sleeping the wrong way to a brain tumor. If you are concerned i suggest you get it looked at by a physician.

No, rest is crucial: Periodsnof rest can be as important as the workouts themselves if you want to improve overall fitness (strength, endurance, speed).
