Breast pump: To buy or not to buy yet? ๐Ÿ‘€

Hi mummies. Do you all buy breast pump in advance or only when you are certain that you are expressing breast milk after delivery? If you buy it in advance and not expressing any breast milk, wouldn't it go to waste as you will not be using it? If you decide to get one only after knowing that you are expressing breast milk post delivery, wouldn't it be too late/rush? Welcome input from experienced and first time mummies. Thanks a bunch! ๐Ÿ˜ #pleasehelp #1stimemom #advicepls #firstbaby #bantusharing #ingintahu #pregnancy

In my experience, I buy the breast pump in advance cause my milk start come out when Iโ€™m on 32w. And after delivery, after the baby start sucking the breast and stimulate it, my milk keep leaking and breast always swollen. Itโ€™s very pain and I need to pump the breast on time to avoid swelling breast.

lucky mummy, milk came sooner before delivery ๐Ÿ˜ thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š

I bought after delivery. try to breastfeed yr baby first. usually after delivery they will teach us to bf at least 30 minutes to 1 hour to stimulate first. later on when there is demand from bby..breast keep producing milk.. use marmet technique

I bought in advanced during my first pregnancy because at 30w my breast already started to produced milks. But my suggestion is, better be prepared. If your breast really canโ€™t produce milk then you can sell it back to other people.
