Have you heard...
"Pumping? Pumping isn't common.
You nurse or give formula.
No one pumps!"
Let's educate them...
It's actually very common to pump. The frequency of pumping may vary, but 85% of lactating people in the US use a pump within the first fourth months. This attitude contributes to why the pumping community is so underserved.
"In the United States (US), approximately 85% of mothers with healthy newborn infants express milk within the first four months post-birth, and the majority do so using a breast pump. This figure does not include mothers of premature or sick infants or mothers with personal health conditions that necessitate breast pump use."
