VI-A. Manual breast pump options: Kaneson

I started out with a Kaneson manual pump, which I like a lot. It
requires a fair amount of arm strength/endurance, since you have to
pump for 10-15 minutes. I've done well with mine, pumping for about
10 months with each of two babies and 6 months with the third. It's
quiet and easy to carry around.

As the Kaneson cylinder becomes full of milk, the suction of the
pump gets stronger. You can compensate for this by not pulling the
cylinder out as far as the pump becomes full. Pumping should never
hurt your nipples.
