Feeding your little darling with breast milk provides him with the most important nutrients for a healthy growth. But not every situation allows you to sit down and breastfeed your baby in a relaxed manner. In these cases, a breast pump is a valuable breastfeeding aid.
A common reason for using a breast pump is returning to work early. If you would like to return to work as soon as possible after the birth, but do not want to deprive your baby of valuable breast milk, you can use a breast pump to pump daily rations of breast milk.
It is also worthwhile using a breast pump if medical problems occur, such as breast inflammation caused by breastfeeding or frequent milk congestion. A breast pump can then be used to gently pump out the breast milk, thereby alleviating the symptoms.
In other cases, the use of a breast pump is not only practical but also indispensable. Premature babies, for example, are often too weak to suck enough breast milk from the breast by themselves. However, as the nutrients contained in breast milk are very important for the healthy development of the premature baby, breast milk can be pumped out and fed to your baby in a bottle.
