Breastfeeding is, for many women, a natural, fulfilling and rewarding way in which to feed their babies. Breast pumps are used by most breastfeeding mums to extract some or even all of their precious breast milk. There are many reasons why mothers choose to use or need to use a breast pump:

  • The mother has to return to work or college
  • The mother may have a commitment to go somewhere where it is not appropriate to take a baby
  • The mother has to take medication that could be transmitted to the breast milk
  • The mother could suffer from pain while breastfeeding
  • The mother might want to relieve the discomfort of engorgement
  • The mother has an oversupply of breast milk
  • The mother does not have to do all of the night feeds if there is extracted milk
  • The mother’s let-down reaction is too fast - also known as overactive let-down
  • The mother is going somewhere that is not appropriate to breastfeed

So using a breast pump gives the best of both worlds - the benefits of breast feeding and bottle feeding at the same time!
