Brought to you by the experts at Bibs and Binkies & Medela

  • A breastfeeding session lasts an average of 16 minutes
  • Almost 3/4 of moms produce more milk in their right breast
  • Babies will drink more milk from the breast that is offered first
  • The average time it takes for a mom’s milk to let-down, or start flowing, during a breastfeeding session is 56 seconds
  • About 1/3 of moms can’t sense their let-down (the feeling when your milk comes in)
  • Babies breastfeed until they’re full, not until they “empty your breast”
  • On average, babies remove 67% of the milk you have available, which ranges from mom to mom.
  • Whether you are breastfeeding or pumping, the amount of milk removed and its fat content will be similar in nature
  • Your milk sprays out of many holes, not just one
  • Years ago, breast pumps resembled turkey basters (WE HAVE COME A LONG WAY!)
  • No matter your size, you will make enough milk for your baby
  • Certain nutrients found in breast milk are responsible for developping your baby’s brain and nervous system
  • Breast milk contains special antibodies that help build immunity and fight infections
  • 77 % of breastfeeding/pumping moms get outside help from lactation consultants
    • 74% of babies have been breastfed
    • 43% still breastfed at 6 months
    • 21% still breastfed at 1 year

  • At birth, your breast milk is called colostrum. It is extremely rich in antibodies and gives your baby a giant immunity boost.
