The overwhelming amount of breast pumps on the market and lack of evidence-based pumping research make it difficult for both parents and professionals to know how to choose and use breast pumps effectively. After conducting pilot testing on over 50 breast pumps with a custom designed Breast Pump Vacuum Monitoring System, we will use the graphs and data gathered to better understand the differences between pumps and which are most effective for specific pumping scenarios. We will dive into the science of breast pumps, the practical use of different types of pumps, and clinical aspects of counseling pumping parents.

Learning Objectives:

Overall Objective: Participants will be able to identify important features of a breast pump to effectively help mothers choose and use a pump appropriately for sufficient and practical milk removal.
1. Explain terms and types of breast pumps
2. Describe qualities that affect breast pump performance as well as the practical implications of different pumps
3. Evaluate strategies for appropriate breast pump selection and use
