The Differences between Breastfeeding and Pumping

Breast pumping and feeding each have their pros and cons. Here at The Breastfeeding Shop, we believe that during the first six months, breastfeeding is crucial for an infant. But a pump can make this a little more manageable for new moms. Pumping lets you share feeding duties and set your own schedule. In addition, you won’t have to worry about latching problems or getting bit by your little bundle of joy.

Even if you’re a mom who plans on breastfeeding instead of pumping, getting a breast pump can still be beneficial for you. Pumping right after a breastfeeding session can help you express more milk. Additionally, you can keep a backup supply of breastmilk in your refrigerator and freezer, depending on how soon you’ll need it. If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation where you can’t directly feed your child, you have milk readily available.

But you probably shouldn’t wait to get a breast pump. When your baby is still tiny and not drinking quite as much, it’s a bit easier for storing breastmilk. Once you start to express less milk moreMilk supply infrequently, it becomes more difficult to build back up your supply. You might not be able to meet your baby’s breastmilk demands.
