What is a breast pump?
A breast pump is a device that tries to simulate the suction movements of your child as well as possible so that your milk production starts and stays. The device massages your chest and then rhythmically sucks your nipple. Sucking your nipple is done by means of a vacuum. It is intended that your acceleration reflex is generated by hormones released by the rhythmic sucking of the device. Then the suction of the flask ensures that milk actually comes out of your breasts. The milk is then collected in a storage bottle.
Do handpulls and electric flasks differ?
In the base, flasks and electric flasks work the same. The chest is emptied by means of rhythmic sucking by building up and breaking the vacuum. There is not clearly a pumping device better than the others. Some women prefer a hand pump while others swear by an electric flask. The choice is therefore entirely personal.
