Exclusively pumping, also known as "Eping" is a way for a mother to continue to give her baby breast milk, when breastfeeding has failed or is delayed.
Most mothers resort to formula feeding when breastfeeding problems arise, not knowing that it is possible to feed their baby, their precious breast milk via bottle or alternative feeding methods.
Most mothers who exclusively express breast milk, are capable of making enough milk for their baby's full nutritional needs.
To all those mothers out there, who have faced the odds and persisted to continue breast pumping exclusively, congratulations! You are
a dedicated mother, and should feel very proud of yourself.

Does exclusively pumping breast milk get easier?
After about three months of exclusive breast pumping, your milk supply should be fully established, which means that you can pump fewer times per day.
Exclusive pumping is the second best option after breastfeeding, but can sometimes be more challenging. It is possible to exclusively pump for as long as most mothers breastfeed and longer.
