Marie, I would really like to breastfeed my baby, but I was wondering what kind of breast pump to buy for when I want to pump extra milk to store it. Can you help? Thanks, Suzie

I get this question frequently because there are many options on the market. How can you choose what is best for you? I don’t have an answer that applies to everyone, because it really depends on what you want to do with your breast pump. Suzie, for you it seems clear that you want to breastfeed your baby almost all the time, and want a practical tool to pump your milk occasionally. If this is the case, if your baby is born at term and has a good sucking capacity, a simple manual breast pump will be enough. However, there are electric breast pumps available as well. Please read my article about breast pumps to learn more to help you make an informed choice.
