Hi, my child is one month old and I want to be able to feed him anywhere and that's why I want to express my milk using a pump. however, I tried using the most basic breast pump which is manual but the suction part was quite painful. Does all breast pump cause pain or pumping is genuinely painful? should I still try using one? and what is the timeline of using breast pumped milk? how long can I use the expressed milk?
