Rethinking the Definition of Breast/Chestfeeding: Where Does Pumping Fit In?
The first breast pump is credited to being invented/patented in 1854 by O. H. Needham. Since then, the pump industry has exploded, making breast pumps more accessible throughout the Western World. While technology has transitioned with the times, the bias that exists within lactation has not. Clinicians are still drawing hard lines on what the “true” definition of breast/chestfeeding is. In this presentation, we’ll dive into why there’s still a debate and answer the age-old question. Spoiler alert: Pumping is breastfeeding and lactation professionals have a responsibility to support parents to meet their pumping goals.
