Are you short on time? The crucial points to remember are:
Colostrum is the initial milk you give that aids in the growth of your infant’s immune system, and you can harvest by hand by squeezing and withdrawing your thumb and fingers from around the nipple. Following the birth of your baby, you should extract prenatal colostrum together into a syringe or a teaspoon. Colostrum harvesting is unlikely to provide labor, can improve your baby’s capacity to nurse, and is medically advantageous for women with high blood pressure or diabetes.
Colostrum is known as nature’s liquid gold, and not simply for its golden yellow color. Nature has created this first infant meal to build up your baby for existence in the beyond. If your midwife requires a Colostrum Collection Kit, they will give you all the information you need to prepare for colostrum harvesting.
Colostrum can be collected after a pregnancy reaches 37 weeks, and the breast milk your infant obtains within the first few days following birth when you are nursing. Colostrum collection and hand expression are valuable skills to acquire throughout pregnancy. Your midwife may help you in simple steps.
What is in the kit?
In this kit, you can have everything you need to collect colostrum syringes throughout your third trimester. It is essential to have a Colostrum Collection Kit and a famous one to provide many mothers with a bit of an advantage in lactating. It is the ideal approach to begin your nursing adventure and boost your chances of production when combined with your Prenatal Tea.

Choose a time when you won’t be distracted and can rest for at least thirty minutes. It may be simpler to perform the first few times while taking a relaxing and soothing bath.
Wash your hands frequently. You could find it simpler to have shorter, clipped fingernails as well.
Gently and firmly rub your breasts from top to down toward the nipple with a flat palm or build a fist.
Keep an eye out for colostrum, which can be transparent or milky in color. It is not crucial if you do not see any because the activity alone stimulates the formation of it.
After a few minutes, create a C shape with your thumb and fingers about 2-3cm first from the nipple tip and gently stroke + squeeze (don’t squeeze till it hurts).
Colostrum should begin accumulating in the nipple end, which you can gather in a syringe.
The colostrum gathered may be dated to use the labels given and kept in your freezer in a reusable jute bag, able to give to your baby if they require it after birth.
