W have been working overtime over here to find the best breast pumps. From $15 to over $900, we’ve tried the pumps to tell you which ones suck the best…
Best All Around
This is an electric pump that has a closed system, so it doesn’t let any air flow between the pumped and the tubing, which helps protect from bacteria. It’s also customizable to find your best settings. It’s quiet, comfortable and it gives a pretty good supply. And it’s cute. It looks like an 80s tape cassette player.
Great for on-the-go… you can use it when you’re driving, flying, whatever. It’s super lightweight. It is loud though. It sounds like a printer.
Freemie Liberty lets you pump hands-free with your shirt on, without having to be attached to a plug. The pump clips on to your waistband and lets you multitask while you pump. They advertise that you can even pump while you’re sleeping, which is not something we have tried. YET. NOTE: You can’t put the cups in the dishwasher and it’s hard to tell when the cups are filling up.
Suctions onto your breast and does the work for you. Great for on the go or for using while feeding on one side.
Worth The Wrist Workout
This is great because you’re not tethered to any outlets. It’s super portable! It’s very efficient.
Most High Tech
The Naya advertises a few things: hospital grade pump, water instead of air is supposed to yield 30% more than a regular pump, it’s specially designed for comfort, it comes with a smart tracker app to track your sessions, and it has a rechargeable battery. BUT it’s super expensive and kind of intimidating.
Check with your insurance, a lot of them cover these so you don’t have to pay any more, which is great because diapers are expensive enough!
