Breast pump is a special type of mechanical device, basically used to draw milk from the breast. It allows the consumer to accumulate the breast milk in storage bottles or bags for later use. Breast pumps are mainly used to relieve the breast pain and also to provide breast milk for the babies who cannot suck milk by themselves. These pumps are designed for extracting milk from the chests by forming a joint around the nipple and spreading over and releasing pressure in the nipple, which expresses the chest milk. Each suction & release combination is called cycle. Breast milk provides protection against many diseases in babies, as well as the main source of their nutrition. Breast milk transfers the antibodies or immunoglobulins including IgG, IgA, IgM and others from the mothers to their infant. These pumps also serve as an immense help for breastfeeding working mothers by providing flexibility with their feedings.
