Breastfeeding in Public Blog
There are several types of pumps available on the market and the ones you should choose largely depend on your nursing habits. First of all, the primary distinction you should be aware of is between pumps designed for mothers that have to pump once a day or less and those who have to pump more than once a day.
For the latter, top-end electric pumps are the most recommended, whereas for the fortunate mothers who do not have to worry about this problem more than once a day, mid-range electric or battery operated pumps will do the trick. Even manual pumps will get the job done, though admittedly manual pumps will require far more patience and energy.
With both eyes constantly on your new-born, it is quite hard to save some time for anything else. However, it is fairly important that you take care to clean your pump when you know you are not going to use it in the next couple of hours. Also, every once in a while check the tubes of the pump and clean them if you ever spot milk residues.
Other than that, any electric breast pump is easy to handle, so your babies should get all the nourishment they require, as long as you take care of all the necessary precautions.
