Why need to pump breast milk?

You can also use a breast pump for these reasons: To stimulate your milk production and increase your milk supply. To collect milk to feed a premature baby or one who can't latch on to your breast. To relieve the pain and pressure of engorged breasts – though too much pumping when you are engorged can make matters worse.

The main reason to breast pump your breast milk to feed your baby when you are not around (might be going out for work or shipping etc) and also they maintain the good breast-milk feed to your baby when you are with them. Also, it is very helpful for working mom where nursing continues with your pumped breast milk.

Pumped milk can be given to your baby by anyone at home (baby caretaker or relatives, dad) and you need not be there to give it and also gives you to take time out of your baby care and get good sleep/break.

When to start pumping breast milk?

In use though, most health professionals advise that you establish your breastfeeding routine first before using a pump. If you are very uncomfortable with a full feeling in your breasts in the first several weeks after your kid is born, you may want to reduce or relieve engorgement with an occasional pumping session.
