  • What breast pumps do you recommend?

    FTM here as well, so no personal experience yet, but I chose the Spectra S1. I used the Aeroflow website to see which pumps I qualified for with my insurance and was emailed a list. I basically had already narrowed it down between a Spectra and Medela because those were the brands I had heard about most on these kinds of forums, but I decided on the Spectra because it has a closed system (which, if I understand it correctly, is useful to prevent bacteria growth etc.) and because it is said to be quieter. I will be going back to work at 12 weeks, so a quiet pump is important to me.

    The spectra S2 was covered 100% by my insurance, but I paid the extra money to upgrade to the spectra S1 as it has the option to run on battery power (s2 didn’t), which is another important factor for me due to returning to work. If I wasn’t planning on that, I probably would’ve stuck with the S2.

    How can you increase your milk supply and milk output?

    If you are still concerned that your milk supply may be low, there are a few things that you can do.

    · Increase nursing frequency. The more you nurse the better. Make sure you're getting plenty of rest and drinking plenty of fluids. Also, try to include high protein snacks throughout the day to help boost your energy level.

    · Get yourself a quality breast pump, if you don't already have one. Double Breast Pumps are recommended when trying to increase a low milk supply. Try pumping after every feeding session for at least 15 minutes, and then continue pumping for an additional 2 to 3 minutes after the last drops of milk have been expressed.

    · Try Fenugreek or other herbs to help increase your milk supply.

    · Seek professional help. Sometimes just talking to a Lactation Specialist puts your mind at ease, and helps you relax, which is a key ingredient to a healthy breastfeeding relationship.

    The key to increasing your milk production and overall milk supply and output, is to remove more milk from your breasts. It's supply and demand, the more milk expressed, the more your body will produce.

    The factors to consider before you buy the breast pumps:
    1. Portability.
    2. How easy is it to clean?
    3. Consider the noise level of the pump.
    4. Is the pump comfortable to use?
    5. Is it user-friendly?
    6. Does the pump come with special features to facilitate pumping?
    7. Are replacement parts easily accessible and what about a warranty if there is a breakdown?
    8. Feeling the pump with your hands before purchasing it.
    9. Used pumps are not an option.
