According to the Pennsylvania Department of Public Health, the percent of Pennsylvania mothers who started breastfeeding after birth increased more than 10% between 2009 and 2018. However, breastfeeding rates drop by nearly 25% eight weeks after birth. Two factors seem to drive this decision to quit breastfeeding. Moms feel like they’re not producing enough breastmilk to satisfy their hungry baby, and many moms are returning to work at that time. For most moms, both of these obstacles can be overcome with a high-quality breast pump.
How breast pumps help moms continue breastfeeding for longer
An electric breast pump allows you to build your milk supply by pumping during breastfeeding sessions and between sessions. You can also practice milk boosting practices like cluster pumping and double-pumping using a pump. Not only does pumping increase milk production by increasing the demand, it also provides you with a breastmilk stash that you can use when you go back to work. Even more exciting, pumps like the Elvie Stride can be worn to work in a standard nursing bra so you can pump while you’re at the office.
