Going Swimming after having a baby and lactation?
So, I’m going to be having a baby about the start of July. I know I’m gonna have to wait a while after the baby comes, for my body to heal up some. My question is, What can I do about the milk that runneth over? With my first boy, anytime I got a shower or even took off my nursing bra, it was like free flowing milk. How can I contain this during the summer? I don’t want to go to the pool, dribbling milk all over. But also, I don’t want to take my newbie or a breastpump to the pool either. (Ugh, how would I even keep the milk in the heat?)
I’ve seen a few products that are like silcon covers, that fit over the breast to help prevent leakage. Has anyone tried these type of things for swimming? I don’t trust company product reviews, of course their product is the best and flawless, etc.
I haven’t put on much weight this pregancy, and I’m excited to try in keep up the trend for after the baby. Any kind of positive advice or reveiws you could give are deeply welcomed!!
I bought some of the silicone shells that collect leaking breast milk. They are the perforated ones. (they have holes at the top to allow air flow to the nipples) and whenever I bent over to pick something up, all the collected milk came gushing out of the top and through my clothes onto the floor! If you are going to use some, get the non perforated ones.
