When to start pumping is a personal decision that can be dependent on a wide range of factors. The most common (and equally important) reasons are:
-If your baby is born prematurely or experiencing health issues.
-If your baby is not gaining enough weight.
-If mom has to go back to work.
-If caregivers are feeding your baby.
Breastfeeding is a long journey and usually takes time and practice to get it right for you and your baby.
