Reasons for expressing
Medical reasons for using a breastpump
The use of a breastpump can be necessary if the newborn initially sucks weakly and milk production is not sufficiently stimulated.
Also in the case of mother-child separation, e.g. work, premature birth or illness of the child, milk production can be built up and maintained through regular expressing.
As a result, the baby can be fed with precious breast milk, and expressing is beneficial for subsequent Breastfeeding.
