Why You Need A Manual Breast Pump


As a nursing mother, your top priority at any time is to ensure that your baby is fine and at ease, making you do all you can to ensure that the baby is satisfied at all times, especially when it comes to feeding. Breastfeeding your baby is necessary, not just to quell their hunger, but to ensure proper growth and development as breastmilk has been known to contain important nutrients that are vital for a child’s formative years and beyond. 

However, the task may not be easy, even if it is not your first time. Some babies require more milk than others and it can be a hassle to sit down and try to feed them. Sometimes, you may have to do that more than 10 times a day, just to keep the baby satisfied. It can be stressful for you and may even prevent you from focusing on other things around the home and dealing with work. But that should not stop you from feeding the baby, as you can take care of things with a breast pump.

What is a Breast Pump?

A breast pump is a device used to get milk from the breast. The device has a part that you place directly on your nipples, using it to “release” milk out of it. It usually has a receptacle where the milk goes to be used when you want it. The breast pump is designed to pump the breast, stimulating it for the milk to flow. The milk obtained is then used to feed the baby at any time and by anyone with the help of a feeder. 

A breast pump should be used in the following instances

  1. Work

If you have work or other engagements to deal with, it may be difficult to always have time for the baby. Simply use the breast pump to release milk which can then be given to the baby later.

  1. The Baby Cannot Suck

Due to medical reasons, or any other, the baby may be unable to latch on directly from your breast. It is the baby’s latch and ability to suck that helps the milk flow out. If the baby is unable to do this, then you can use a breast pump to obtain milk yourself which you can then feed the baby.

  1. You Cannot Suckle The Child

It may also be that you find it hard to stay fixed while the child sucks, or you do not have the strength for it. Using a breast pump can make things a lot easier for you and the child. 

  1. To Relieve Yourself 

It is not only nursing mothers who need breast pumps as those who have finished breastfeeding their child, but still produce milk can use it to extract the milk, relieving themselves of the pain that comes with it 

Breast pumps come in different types, like the manual breast pump and the electric breast pump, but today we will be looking at the manual type.

Like the name states, a manual breast pump is operated manually, meaning you have to press it for it to work. It comes with a lever that you have to keep pressing for milk to be able to flow out of. It does not require any external source of power and you can use it anywhere, due to its size and weight. 

If you are considering buying a breast pump today, you should go for a manual breast pump due to the benefits it offers.

  1. It is Portable

The manual breast pump can be easily carried about as you do other things, meaning you do not have to be in one spot every time you need to release milk. This is a great option for you if you need to get things done around the house or you need to be away from the home for a while, as you can take it along with you. 

  1. It Does Not Depend On Any Power Source

Unlike the electric breast pump, the manual breast pump does not rely on electricity or any other source of power to function. All you need do is to control the lever for you to pump milk. This makes it great for trips as you do not have to bother about the power to get your pump working. 

  1. They Are Easy To Maintain

Since you do not have to worry about power source or batteries, manual pumps are very economical and easy to maintain as buying it once does not require any additional costs. 

Manual breast pumps are easy to buy, although you might have to consider the design, especially the breast shield if you are getting the best manual breast pump for large breasts for you to get good results.
