Breastfeeding is a miracle. A mother feeding her baby, suckling at her breast, is a divine sight. Mother’s milk is that elixir that protects the baby from all kinds of infections, allergies and keep your baby healthy for years to come. WHO recommends that a baby is exclusively breastfed for the first six months. Doctors will tell you to continue to breastfeed your baby for as long as two years of age. Despite most women knowing the benefits of mother’s milk, they face obstacles in the feed. And that is where a breast pump comes in to the rescue.

While breastfeeding is an experience that is unique to each mother, a breast pump can come in handy for a variety of medical and non- medical reasons.

“Why do I need a breast pump?”

Surabhi Dang, a 37 year old new mom, says her baby boy just wouldn’t get the latch right. “It was heart breaking for me, not just because I was not being able to breastfeed, but also because my baby was being deprived of goodness of mothers milk.”

After several days of trial and error, Surabhi says she decided to try the breast pump. “I went for the manual one to start off with, but now I have got myself an electric one and my life is so sorted, ” says this happy mother. The electric breast pump is simple to use, just plug it on and go hands free. The milk is expressed from one or both the breasts, as you choose. Post the collection, the milk can be stored in bottles in the fridge.

Breast pumps are useful if the infant has a cleft palate and cannot suck easily. Multiple pregnancies might also present difficulties in directly feeding the baby.
