The Best Breast Pumps

Breast Pumps Breast Pumps

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

Spectra Baby 2
$159

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 produces a pretty good supply. And it’s cute. It looks like an ’80s tape cassette player.

Ultra-Portable

Medela Freestyle
$290

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.

Most Discreet

Freemie Hands-Free Pump
$300

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. One other negtive is that it’s hard to tell when the cups are filling up.

Best-Looking

Haakaa Manual Breast Pump

Worth The Wrist Workout

This is great because you’re not tethered to any outlets, making it super portable! It’s very efficient.

Most High Tech

Naya
$940

The Naya advertises a few things: hospital grade pump, water instead of air is supposed to yield 30% more mik than a regular pump, 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. Do check with your insurance, though, because a lot of plans cover these, which is great because diapers are expensive enough!
