Exclusive Pumping - a Lifestyle Choice Made Possible
There are many reasons why pumping to feed a baby is necessary. Your baby could be born premature or have tongue/lip ties which prevent them from latching, your baby might find sucking on short/inverted nipples tiring, or the mother might need to be away from the baby for long periods of time very soon after birth. Or, the mother may choose to exclusively pump (EP) as a lifestyle choice, or to allow greater bonding between the baby’s father or other caregivers through feeding. In any case, exclusively pumping to breastfeed babies is in no way inferior to nursing babies directly from the breast.
Why Consider Exclusive Pumping Lactation Support Services?
Evolving Your Preferred Lifestyle
One of the ways to regain confidence and control of your new lives after having a new baby is through regaining control of your time and being able to plan activities to support your preferred lifestyle. Pumping is a great way to ensure full boobs do not interrupt your new routines and engorgement issues stay at bay.
Regulating Your Supply
The key to regulating your supply is understanding how your body responds to signals to produce more or less milk. Learn how to “fully empty” to increase supply, or avoid engorgement issues, or “pump the desired amount” and avoid the issues of oversupply, or pump fewer times a day while maintaining supply to minimise disruption to other activities.
