There are two types of pump available, Manual and Electric. If you are looking at a pump, which is not very expensive, which is lighter and easy to use and portable, which you will not be using more often (only 3-4 times in a day then go for Manual pump. You can also take advice of your doctor on exact ways of using it. Manual pump is also known to increase the breast milk supply. So do not worry, you can easily use it.Pumping milk takes almost the same time as breastfeeding, but with practice and a good pump, you can pump your breasts in as little as 10 to 15 minutes.
