Reasons to Exclusively Pump

Reasons to Exclusively Pump (EP)

Straight from the Research

-“Pumping may have started when an infant was hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit and the parents are encouraged to provide breastmilk.”

-“Pumping may have been proposed as a possible short‐term solution following problems with direct breastfeeding, such as the infant's inability to latch, transfer milk effectively, accept the breast, or parents needing/wanting to monitor intake.”

-“May have been influenced by the availability of high‐quality breast pumps.”

-“Families returning to work before the breastfeeding relationship was established.”

-“The availability of social media to gain social support for EP and a source for EP strategies.”
