Hi Minu Maheswari ! U can use breast pump in case u are not able to feed directly or u will not be available to the baby. U can stop using breastpump once ur milk supply is stimulated.. directly feeding is always better than using a breastpump, as it strengthens the mother child bond. it also helps in loosing pregnancy's weight, and increases child's immunity. However using a breastpump for longer duration can affect breast tissues and cause engorgement.
