Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Mostly breast pumps are used by mothers who need to prepare for the child in advance due to their business. Most of the working ladies are using breast pumps to empty the breast in advance and to have milk as per need. Breast pump helps to maintain breast production by emptying breast if used properly.

Emptying of breast even if the baby does not need at present but after some time helps to maintain milk production and also can be managed in hectic routine of working ladies. Some time sick babies are unable to suck, so in those timings, breast pump helps fully for mother to empty breast as engorged breast can give her symptoms as well.

Babies taken care by maids can be well fed by breast milk even in a tough working schedule of the mother with the help of a breast pump.
