UPMC Breast Pumps
Who Offers UPMC Breast Pumps?
The breastfeeding experience can be very stressful and frustrating, especially in the beginning. Finding the right pump with your insurance, knowing what supplies you will need ahead of time, and what to expect through the breastfeeding journey. We now offer a UPMC breast pump at an affordable price and with unmatched service.
When it comes to nourishing your baby, every momma and daddy needs to look at their options and figure out what’s right for their family. Here at The Breastfeeding Shop, we firmly believe that mom’s milk is the very best source of nutrition for a developing baby. But some babies aren’t the best at latching, and some moms have trouble producing enough milk. One thing that you can do to help increase your milk production is to pump after feeding your baby. It’s best to start this process before your child starts to grow and eat more.

Which Breast Pump Should I Get through My Insurance?
If you’re feeling overwhelmed trying to compare all the different breast pump options, don’t give up. And it might not be best to rely on a recommendation from a friend or family member. Each and every mom is different and has her own needs. Certain UPMC breast pumps are made for casual pumpers who have enough time to breast pump manually. Meanwhile, double electric breast pumps are perfect for working moms who need to pump several times a day. It’s all about finding the right equipment that will help support your needs during your busy schedule. Our knowledgeable team can make it much easier for you to find your breast pump.
Are Hands-Free Breast Pumps Reliable?
Yes, hands-free breast pumps are very reliable. Some models will fit right into your bra, and it’s easy to put in your settings and let the pump do the work for you. Plus, this type of breast pump makes it easy for you to multitask while you express your milk. That might include running some errands, playing with your baby, or doing a conference call for work. Here at The Breastfeeding Shop, we offer a number of hands-free breast pumps from UPMC. Get in touch with us for more information.
What’s the Best Way to Store My Breast Milk?
If you’ve decided to pump your milk, it’s very important to make sure that you are storing your breast milk properly. After you wash your hands and express your milk, you should make sure to store the milk in a container without bisphenol A (BPA). We recommend using milk storage bags that are specifically made for this purpose. Additionally, if you write on the bag the date that you pumped the milk, this will help ensure that you’re using the oldest milk first. The fresher the breast milk is, the more nutrients it will have for your baby.
It’s best to store the milk in the back of the refrigerator or freezer, so it’s not getting hit with warm air every time the door is opened. If you don’t have access to a freezer or fridge, you can use a cooler with ice packs for up to 24 hours. Your milk can be stored in the back of the fridge for about 4 days or so. And it can be frozen for up to 12 months. But it’s best to use the milk within 6 months.
The best way to thaw frozen breast milk is to transfer it to the refrigerator and let it set there overnight. If you don’t have that much time to wait, you can run the bottle under warm water. Don’t heat up your milk in the microwave or on the stove because you could end up accidentally burning your baby.
What Should I do if I’m not Expressing Enough Milk?
Everyone’s lactation journey is different. If you’re having some trouble, there are different tactics you can try. You might have to try pumping more often throughout the day and create a regular routine. Or, you might need to relax a little more when you pump. Additionally, you should try to take care of yourself and get some sleep during this process. At The Breastfeeding Shop, we offer an experienced lactation consultant that is here to help you out.

How do I Get My Baby to Drink Milk from a Bottle?
Some babies make this transition easily. Meanwhile, other babies can get a bit finicky when you try to transition from the breast to a bottle. You might have to make some small adjustments until you find what your baby likes. That could mean trying a different bottle or a different nipple. Or, you may have to try some different feeding positions or have your spouse or another caregiver feed the baby. With some babies, if they can smell mommy, they’ll only take milk from direct breastfeeding.
