My son was born 9 weeks early and spent 33 days in the NICU. Because he was so small he never was able to latch on. The doctors told me the single most important thing for me to do was to focus on providing milk for my son. My husband bought me the Pump in Style pump and I have been using that for the past 5 1/2 months. My son is amazingly healthy and has had no complications. I attribute that to the breast milk he has received. That wouldn't have been possible without the breast pump!
