Breast pump function2019-07-03
The most common reason to use a breast pump during breastfeeding is to keep the milk so that the baby can still get breast milk when you are not there. Even when you are with your baby, using a breast pump can help maintain your milk. If you want to continue breastfeeding after work, it is more necessary to suck the milk out and save it.
In addition, the use of breast pumps can also stimulate milk secretion and increase milk volume. If your baby is a premature baby or does not suck on your mother's nipple, using a breast pump to collect milk will not only allow your baby to eat valuable breast milk, but also relieve the pain and pressure that the milk will bring to you. However, it should be noted that the number of milking during the expansion of milk is not too much, otherwise it will make the situation worse.
In a special case, if the doctor advises you to stop breastfeeding temporarily, for example because you are taking medications that may be harmful to your baby, or if you need short-term hospitalization, use breastfeeding during the time when you cannot breastfeed your baby. The milk is sucked out and can continue to help you maintain adequate milk secretion.
Although some people prefer to milk by hand, most people still think it is faster and easier to use a breast pump. At the beginning, you may not get used to it. It feels strange to use the "machine" to suck out the milk in your breasts, but usually it won't take long before you can suck it very easily.
