We recommend breastfeeding as much as possible. It is the best way to feed your baby. However we understand that not every mom can feed on demand and be with their baby 24 hours a day. If you want to continue to provide your baby with breastmilk , a breast pump is an effective way to establish and maintain a good milk supply.
There is no doubt about it; breast milk offers incredible health benefits for little ones. Breast pumps can be very expensive and may simply be out of the budget. If the high cost of a hospital grade breast pump, which is required for more than occasional use, seems to be a barrier to breastfeeding, here are a few options you can look into. There are numerous programs designed to specifically help women with the care of their newborns. The WIC Women Infants Children program exists to help lower income families with the nutritional needs that their children have. WIC is a very big supporter of breastfeeding and, if you qualify, they may be able to supply you with a quality breast pump.
One study found that the volume of breast milk significantly increased after music therapy by times! While music, visual meditation, and looking at photos of your baby helped the most, any kind of music worked. So put in your earbuds and get ready to get the milk flowing with some of our favorite tunes. With a mix of motivational, relaxing and, well, just plain fun tunes, here's your new favorite pump playlist! Pump It , Black Eyed Peas.
