1) It is prohibited, on Shabbos, for a woman to extract her milk into a utensil for the purposes of feeding it to her infant child, unless doing so for the health of the child (Pikuach Nefesh). (Shulchan Aruch Siman 328:34)

However, it is permitted for her to extract the milk directly into the mouth of the child in order to get him to latch on and start nursing. (Shulchan Aruch Siman 328:35. See Sha’arei Tziyun Os 81 where he discusses the reasons for this being permitted.)

2) If a woman is in pain due to excessive milk, she may extract it on Shabbos, provided it goes to waste and isn’t gathered for a later feeding of her child. (Shulchan Aruch Siman 330:8 and Mishna Berura S”K 32)

Likewise, if she isn’t in pain but is doing this in order to ensure that she will be able to nurse properly at a later time it is permissible [even if the child already eats other foods] provided the milk goes to waste. (Ruling of Rav Shlomo Zalmen Auerbach Zatzal quoted in Sefer M’Or HaShabbos Vol. 1 letter 11:10)

1) A woman who is extracting milk (in a permissible situation as we discussed yesterday) may use a manual breast pump for this purpose.

However, the utensil that the milk is being pumped into should preferably have soap, or another non edible and non Muktzeh substance in it, to ensure that the milk being pumped will be unfit for feeding the child (as some Poskim require that not only must it be discarded, it may never be useable in the first place even if the intention is to discard in a few moments.)

Alternatively, though not always practical, the milk that is pumped can go directly into a sink and down the drain.

2) An electric breast pump may not be used in the normal manner, and preferably should be avoided altogether.

In cases of extreme necessity when a manual pump is not sufficient, as determined by a Rav, an electric pump may be used in an indirect way (Grama) as follows:

The pump can be set on a timer to go on and off at regular intervals.

The part of the pump that attaches to the woman must be put in place when the pump is off.

Thus, when the pump turns on the milk will be extracted automatically without any action on the woman’s part; she may not even hold onto the cup while it is pumping, though it may be tied on with a string before the pump turns on. (See Chazon Ish Siman 38:4)

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the
screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue
solved soon. Cheers
