Given the fact that the location of milk is familiar, what remains when it comes to production of milk is the way this can be facilitated. The most effective, and only way is by stimulating woman’s breasts. This can be performed either by the woman herself, or with the help of her partner or spouse. Duration should last at least twenty minutes (i.e. ten minutes for each breast) and should be performed eight times at the most, on a daily basis. What has been determined so far is that the most beneficial and effective way to initiate the production of milk is by way of suckling (by the partner). In case this sounds a bit unpleasant to some, quite a good substitute is also a bit of hand massage, together with the stimulation of the nipple(s). Since the vital hormones, which are responsible for inducing milk production, are secreted constantly only for ten minutes, and stay in woman’s blood stream just for twenty minutes, performing either of the two techniques after the designated period will have almost no positive effect, and will prove to be practically useless.
For those women who do decide to go with the first method, it must be pointed out that in this case, the technique employed by the partner in question is absolutely essential, when it comes to giving satisfactory results. However, if the technique employed is not proper, it will only induce counter effects – meaning a woman will not be able to lactate no matter how hard she tries. Therefore, it is advised to get as many information as possible on the proper suckling techniques, either from the books or by way of internet. Regarded as the most effective manner to conduct suckling is to have a partner do it for 5 minutes (each breast); repeating it until the twenty minutes mark is reached.
Women, who on the other hand, opt for massage-stimulation, should know that Marmet Technique has yielded best possible results so far. On top of it, all the women who have tried it have only those most favorable things to say.
One woman is able to initiate lactation with as little as four stimulation sessions lasting twenty minutes, on a daily basis. In addition, what women should also know is that the greater the number of sessions in the course of the day, the faster induction will take place and yield much better results. For the purpose of getting even better and more satisfactory results, a woman should give her best and arrange the session in an even order throughout the day.
