Why would I use a breast pump?

Breast feeding is a natural process but does not always come naturally for some mothers. Milk supply may be slow to come after birth; nipples may be inverted, flat or large and fibrous affecting a sufficient latch in the beginning stages; Nipples may be damaged due to insufficient latch or from a hindrance on baby’s end such as tongue tie or cleft lip or palate; Baby may not be sucking effectively due to sleepiness, jaundice, or may be preterm and unable to breast feed straight away.

A breast pump is a breast feeding aid to help maintain breastfeeding during these times.
How it works:

  • Using a pump after each breast feed provides extra stimulation to your breasts and milk glands, which encourages them to produce more milk each time. For this reason a breast pump is usually needed by the 2nd day of birth when it becomes obvious your baby is not getting enough.
  • Stimulates your milk supply to come back when it has dried up from being away from baby in hospital or on medication unsuitable for breastfeeding.
  • Maintains milk supply when you need to be away from baby due to a medical situation.
  • Enables you to pump milk out for your baby when he/she is unable to suck or when you are unable to breastfeed for a time due to damaged nipples or nipple shape hindrances.

 

If you are indecisive about owning a breast pump before birth, we recommend you know what you want so that you do not get rushed in to hiring one for a costly price. With Unimom you can own quality and still beat hiring prices.
