When it comes to breastfeeding, there are a lot of questions that new mothers have. How often should I nurse? How do I know if my baby is getting enough milk? How do I position my baby correctly? One question that many mothers ask is how long they should pump with a haakaa. In this blog post, we will answer that question and give you some background information on the haakaa silicone pump!

What is a Haakaa Pump?

The haakaa silicone pump is a manual breast pump that is designed to be used while you are nursing your baby on the other breast. It suctions onto your breast and collects any let-down milk that would otherwise be lost in a nursing pad. The haakaa pump is easy to use and can be worn under your clothing so that you can pump hands-free!

How Long Should You Pump with a Haakaa

Does using a Haakaa count as pumping?

Yes! Using the haakaa pump counts as pumping. It is a great way to collect any let-down milk that would otherwise be lost, and it’s easy to use while you are nursing your baby on the other breast.

Should you pump when your milk comes in?

You should pump when your milk comes in to help establish and maintain your milk supply. Pumping after every feeding is not necessary, but pumping at least once a day will help keep your milk production up.

How long you need to pump will vary from woman to woman, so it’s important to listen to your body and do what feels best for you.

How Long Should You Pump with a Haakaa? 

The answer to this question may surprise you! There is no set amount of time that you should pump with a haakaa, and it will vary from woman to woman.

Some women find that they only need to pump for a few minutes, while others may need to pump for up to 20 minutes. It’s important to listen to your body and do what feels best for you.

If you are using the haakaa silicone pump to collect let-down milk, then pumping for a few minutes is all you need. However, if you are using the haakaa as a supplemental breast pump, then you will need to pump for longer. If you are using it as your only pumping method, then you will need to pump for at least 15-20 minutes.
