Dr Jackie Kent is recruiting for this study she is doing at The University of Western Australia, contact her if you are interested in participanting.
We currently measure breastmilk production by asking the mother to weigh her baby before and after all breastfeeds at home for 24 hours. We aim to assess if a preferable alternative would be pump the breast(s) with an electric breast pump for 10 minutes every hour for 3 hours (4 pumps). The pumping will take place in the research room at The University of Western Australia and mothers will be able to keep the expressed milk. We are recruiting mothers who have previously expressed milk and whose babies will take breastmilk from a bottle.
