Do You Need a Breast Pump?
Since every mother’s situation is unique, you’ll need to think about your lifestyle, employment situation, feeding preferences and how long you plan on breastfeeding when making the decision on whether or not to purchase a pump. If you’re planning on working outside the home after baby is born and continuing to breastfeed, for example, then a good pump is a must-have. But if you expect to be with baby most of the time, it may not be quite as crucial.
We recommend getting a pump if:
*You’re planning on being away from baby on a regular basis, such as for your job, or for an extended period of time, such as a trip.
*You’re looking to maintain your milk supply, either because your baby can’t or won’t nurse or you’re dealing with an illness or a medication that isn’t safe for breastfeeding.
*You’re dealing with low supply or engorgement.
*You prefer feeding baby expressed milk.
