The effort of pumping breastmilk is worthwhile for mothers who want to keep up breastfeeding when they return to work, travel, or are absent for any reason.
However, it is very important to make sure that pumped breastmilk is stored under the proper conditions. This article has all the important rules for pumping, refrigeration, thawing, and heating pumped breastmilk.
Feeding your baby from a bottle within the first few months is not recommended. Instead, allow breastfeeding to develop naturally. Bottle feeding can cause nipple confusion and lead to difficulties with breastfeeding. Therefore even in the delivery room, it is important to notify medical personnel that you intend to breastfeed and therefore your baby should not be given a bottle without your permission.
