14: Lactation Support Technology
Lactation support technology refers to the equipment and methods used to support successful breastfeeding. These include breast pumps, breast shells, nipple shields, feeding tube devices, weighing scales, and proper milk storage—any or all of which can be useful in supporting women in initiating and maintaining their breast milk supply and, ultimately, to breastfeed.
