Breastfeeding or Pumping: What to Choose?

You can supply your baby with breast milk through breastfeeding and pumping. Breast milk is natural nourishment for newborns. Breastfeeding and pumping are two different ways a mother can feed their child. 

Health experts usually advise that the best nutritional choice for infants is to get breast milk for a minimum of the first year of life. 

However, if breastfeeding is not going as smoothly as you had anticipated or you cannot take time off work for 1 year, then breast pumping can prove to be a better alternative. 

We’ve listed out the benefits of both, breastfeeding and pumping to help you decide which one is best for you and your infant.


Benefits of Breastfeeding


Minimal Clutter - Breastfeeding eliminates the need to clean a large number of bottles or pump parts after every feeding session.


Enriched Milk Nourishment - Breast milk nutrients are particularly well suited to your baby's requirements when your body is bonding with your child in the intimate manner that nursing entails. Your breast reacts to the baby's saliva, creating antibodies against viruses or germs to which the infant has been exposed.  


Increase Your Bond With Your Newborn - Breastfeeding parents spend a lot of time holding and feeding their children. The proximity and time spent together foster a strong link between mother and baby.


Always Around the Baby - When you primarily breastfeed, you shouldn't have to worry about having pumped milk on reserve to feed your baby.


Benefits of Pumping


Flexibility - Pumping allows you to feed your baby on a schedule that works better for you. 


Backup Milk - By scheduling extra pumping sessions during the day, you may build up a supply of extra milk for times when you want to drink or eat something that isn't good for your baby's health. 


Reduce Discomfort - Breast pumps alleviate breast pain caused by a poor latch, biting, or other issues.


Measure Milk Extraction - For some mothers, pumping is reassuring since they can see exactly how much milk they are producing and what their baby is consuming. 


Invite others to interact with the baby - If you practice pumping, others can care for your child. Giving your baby a bottle is a great way for fathers, grandparents, and siblings to bond with them. 


Additional Time for Self - Since other people can take care of your infant, you can enjoy some much-needed self-time or even finally have time for a quick shower. You won't have to always be concerned about your baby not eating while you're at a workout session, sleeping, or getting your hair styled.


Based on your priority, you can choose between breastfeeding and breast pumping as the most suitable option for you and your baby.
