18. Reasons for pumping and type of pump to use. Some mothers simply prefer to collect breast milk by pumping.   Some mothers must be separated from their infants. They should probably use an electric, Lopuco, or Kaneson type pump. These women should be under the care of a Physician/Practitioner or a Premature and High Risk Counselor.   Some mothers pump to go back to work or school or for an occasional bottle. They could use a Lopuco or Kaneson type pump and should consider contacting a regular nursing women's group.

There are several pumps available, ranging in price and effectiveness. Naval, Evenflo, and Kaneson are hand pumps; Medela, Egnell, and Neonatal Axicare are electric pumps.
