Question: Is breast pumping daily good for mother? My baby is not latching to breast nipple due to flat nipple and i tried with nipple shield which didn't work great so i started pumping and making her to drink through bottle.
Answer: Dear there is no side effect for mother using breastpump. I also used breastpump during breastfeeding time. But its important to latch baby because when baby sucks the nipple it stimulate hormones and increase milk supply but not latching baby can reduce milk supply. Try to pump some milk and pumping will make nipple come out and directly put nipple in baby mouth it will help baby to latch easily..
