Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
You have made an important decision to breastfeed your baby. During your hospital stay, we want to help you provide breastmilk for your infant. Breastmilk is very rich in nutrients and provides your child with antibodies to fight infection. These antibodies are even more important to sick infants. Studies have shown that infants recover quicker from diarrhea and respiratory illness if breastfed. We want to help you establish and maintain your milk supply when you cannot nurse your baby.
UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh provides high-quality Medela Symphony, double electric breastpumps for your use. Please request a breastpump personal kit and cleaning supplies from your nurse or patient care technician.
Please let your baby's nurse or doctor know if we can help you in any way with your breastfeeding experience while your child is hospitalized at Children's. We wish you much success.
