Pumping breastmilk is a very personal behavior for most women. Surveys indicate women want a pump that works quickly, obtains a sufficient quantity of milk from each breast, and does not cause pain. A pump that works for one mom may not work as well for another mom for a variety of reasons. Many mothers have found interventions and techniques that make their pumps work better.
In this three-part book, Marsha Walker, RN, IBCLC, shares information on the history and regulation of breast pumps, the mechanics of pumps, a review of the literature, types of pumps, ways to pump more effectively, flanges, how to choose a pump, pumping protocols, how to troubleshoot problems, and how to deal with low milk supply.
If you want to know more about breast pumps and tips and techniques for pumping more milk, this is the book for you!
