Breast pumps can be a nursing mother’s best friend. They make the difference between a stressful and at times painful, experience and an easy, no-fuss, take ten minutes out of your day and then you’re back to work chore. While every mom and every baby is different, we decided to focus on those that would need an electric breast pump and how it can help new moms.
Breast pumps come in two main types: manual and electric. To know what’s right for you, you need to look at what each types is good for.
In addition to the aforementioned considerations we mentioned (single vs double, manual vs electric), there are few features you should look for before purchasing the best electric breast pump for you:
Best overall: Philips AVENT Double Electric Comfort Breast Pump
This versatile breast pump allows mothers to start off with a gentle stimulation before choosing the expression setting (low, medium, high) while also providing a soft cushion that stimulates the flow. Its unique design allows a number of comfortable pumping positions so moms can express easily and relax.
Best design: Medela Pump in Style Advanced
With its custom backpack, patented 2-phase expression technology, and customization settings, this breast pump affords moms the greatest level of comfort and freedom while they’re getting down to the business of being a mom. The pump comes with several different sized flanges, a cooler bag, and ice pack so moms won’t be tripped up for one moment while they’re at work or out with the family and friends.
Best value: COCOBELA Double Electric Breast Pump
With its multiple suction modes and levels and super quiet, USB charged motor, the Cocobela is the breast pump with the most bang for your back value on the market. Using it is simple and it’s designed to prevent leakage from the tube while all the milk makes it to the bottle, keeping every fresh and clean.
