The pump offers the comfort and convenience of fast, easy pumping at the touch of a button.
Mothers can pump out breast milk and store it for later use. However, breast pump has some painful effects that not many mothers are aware of.
1. Reduce milk supply. A breast pump is very different from a baby latching on to your nipple and suckling. The latching of a baby can stimulate more milk production in your body. If a baby is not allowed to latch on, the milk production reduces.
2. Freezing can reduce the nutrition of breast milk. If the baby is fed by the mom directly, he can get all the nutrients of breast milk. But freezing breast milk for more than three months, thawing, and reheating causes a reduction of vital nutrients in the breast milk.
3. Breast pump can damage the nipple and cause breast tissue. The wrong setting can cause great pain to mothers while pumping.
4. Feeding With Both Bottle and Breast Confuses Babies. If you frequently switch between bottle and breastfeeding, it can be confusing for your baby. This is due to the difference in the mechanism of lactation in the two conditions. Your baby may suck harder on her mother's nipple, just like he sucks on a bottle. It can also cause the mother’s nipple sore.
