Breast pumps are part of your postpartum essentials. Especially if you are planning to resume work post-childbirth, you are sooner than likely will be researching breast pumps to aid your breastfeeding process. More often, moms are confused about getting the right breast pumps for breastfeeding their babies. In fact, this is one of the most asked questions in our mom community, Momly, as well. To soothe your worries, we thought of bringing some of the recommendations mouthed by our Momly moms when this question of breast pumps was raised. These recommendations are based on experiences shared by the moms in Momly.
Medela Swing Maxi Double Electric Breast Pump – This is one of the most loved breast pumps that moms vouch for to pump up milk. Equipped with a soft rim with advanced expression technology, it is a comfort giver induced with natural experience for babies. It has a USB Type – C port which aids in faster charging and provides up to 6 pumping sessions in one go. Also, the shape is built in such a way that it rotates completely to 360 degrees which makes it an easy fit for your breast. “Medela is easy to get hands-on. It is quite good and durable. Also, it is available widely which is a major plus” says Dr. Amrita, Momly mom. She also goes on to mention the Philips Avent electric breast pump which brings us to another household brand in the matter of breast pumps.
Philips Avent Electric Single Breast Pump – Armed with natural motion technology, it powerfully combines suction and nipple stimulation which means it can relieve engorged nipples, inverted nipples and help in effective latching. It is built as a one-size-fits-all formula and its design is in such a way that you don’t have to lean forward but can be upright while feeding. And more specifically, its quiet motor experience is an added bonus which was a major point of contention for moms in our community. Some of the moms abhorred the sound that other breast pumps made. Maybe breast pump manufacturers could make a note of our Momly moms’ suggestion and give a quiet, discreet experience for pumping.
Luvlap Electric Breast Pump – Phased into three, it promises massage, stimulation, and expression. Luvlap breast pumps massage phase helps in easy suction with a soft massage. The massage phase stimulates the breasts which goes hand in hand with the baby’s suckling motion. What is best about this breast pump is if there is no power supply, it resorts to an extra handle to convert into a manual pump. Anti-backflow design in it prevents milk contamination and motor damage.
