Best TENS Units For Stimulating Lactation
Adding a TENS unit to your inducing routine is a great way to see faster results. The more regularly you can stimulate your breasts the quicker your body becomes used to the idea that it should be making milk. This, in turn, will cause your body to ‘wake up’ the milk-making mechanisms in the breast.
Comfort and ease of use are essential things to consider when purchasing a TENS unit. We reviewed a range of units, assessing them on various points, such as, comfort, variety of settings, easily replaceable/available electrodes, and battery life.
PRO TIP: To get more life out of your electrode pads, clean your skin with alcohol before you apply the pads. When they start to lose their stickiness, wet your finger and rub water on the sticky side of the pad – let dry. This will revive the sticky on the pads and you can continue to use them. The best part is you can keep doing this until it just doesn’t revive them anymore. I’ve been able to keep the same set of pads for several months before they stopped being useable.
