Figuring out how to choose a breast pump and determining which will work best for you might feel challenging. Especially when you consider how many options there are. But don’t worry – this advice on how to choose a breast pump plus several trusted recommendations will help!
Generally, breast pumps are used in cases where the baby is sick or premature to breastfeed or has trouble latching onto the breast, or where the mother has milk supply issues.
As mentioned, all breast pumps are different, and what works for one mom may not work for another. So here’s the lowdown on the types of breast pumps.
Electric pumps have a motor attached to them that runs on electricity or a battery. They can be either single or double meaning you can use them to pump one or both breasts simultaneously.
Spectra’s hospital-strength breast pump is powerful without the bulk and noise of other pumps. Digital controls let you adjust speed and suction to maximize output, and the pump uses a closed system, which keeps milk completely separate from the pump pieces (ensuring better hygiene and performance).
