Best 10 Manual and Electric Breast Pump in India 2021
Breast pumps are devices used by lactating mothers for extracting (or expressing) milk from their breasts. From the ancient times, nurses and midwives have been helping women with this crucial process, but as it might be inconvenient to always seek the help of an expert, a breast pump proves to be quite useful. There are several reasons for expressing milk and using breast pumps:
To preserve the milk for feeding a newborn, later on (as in when the mother is at work and the baby is being looked after by a family member or a babysitter).
To increase lactation in women who have a low milk supply.
To prevent or relief the problem of breast engorgement (when the breasts become overfilled with milk, causing pain and discomfort).
To donate breast milk to babies in orphanages.
There are generally two types of breast pumps. A manual breast pump is used by pulling a handle or with the pressure of the foot on a pedal. It is a very handy device especially for places where you cannot use electricity.
With this one, the mother can control the suction pressure and frequency of milk expressed. However, as this requires physical effort, it might cause weariness. It is mostly available at pocket-friendly prices.
An electric breast pump can be operated with both electricity power and a battery. It is obviously very convenient to use but can be quite expensive. It consist of a motor that helps in the suction of milk and then this expressed milk is transferred to a container via a tube.
The milk container of some electric breast pumps can also be used as a feeding bottle for the baby. A storage bag for preserving the breast milk in the refrigerator might be provided by some manufacturers.
Now, let’s discover some best range of breastfeeding pump machines available online.
