It's pretty much second nature now for moms to expect their partners to help out with the baby. In fact, let's not even call it "helping out" — it's just called parenting, right? Your partner should be an active part of your baby's life in all things, even if you're breastfeeding. But can your partner help with pumping?
Um, absolutely. In fact, I don't think there's any part of being a parent that your partner can't support you in or offer some hardcore help. My ex and I separated when my daughter was 2 months old, so I never had any nighttime help. Even though I breastfed, I still was super jealous of moms who had partners get up in the middle of the night. Do you know how amazing it would've been if I had a partner who would pick up the baby in the middle of night, change her diaper, swaddle her, and bring her to me so I could feed her? And then they could take her back to bed with a full tummy while I didn't have to do too much moving around?
So, yes. Of course your partner can help with pumping breastmilk. It doesn't matter if you're pumping exclusively, if you're pumping at work, or if you're trying to build up your supply. Your partner can help with pumping in these nine ways.
