Expressing and Storing Your Breast Milk

Your situation will likely dictate which method of expression you use. For example, if you need to be away from your baby for full-time work or school, or if your baby is premature or sick and unable to breasfeed, it is recommended that you rent an electric breast pump. Select one with a double pumping kit so you can pump both breasts at once and cut the time in half that you will need for expressing milk. If you need to be separated from your baby only occasionally, a hand pump or hand expression may suit your needs.
