A breast pump allows you to pump breast milk while you're away from your baby — or between breast-feeding sessions. Manual breast pumps are a common choice for mothers who are breast-feeding and who need to pump only occasionally. You simply place a cone-shaped shield on your breast and squeeze the handle to express the milk.
