  • Yes, as hot a shower as you can stand. Let the water run on your breasts, while gently massaging, starting from the outer part of your breast to your nipple. This will allow some of the milk to come out, without leaving you all sticky! Hand pump (with your hand, of course) if possible.

  • Def hot shower. Don't over pump or you breasts will produce more.
