There’ll be times you feel like a milk machine, but just imagine what you could get done if you didn’t have to hold the breast pump while you expressed milk?
Pumping bras are a game changer. They do the heavy lifting for you, leaving your hands free to get things done! Who knew there was such a product that allows mums to be the multi-tasking wonder women we always knew they were?
Here’s our list of five super-handy pumping bras you need before the next feed.
The Medela Easy Expression Bustier cleverly allows busy mums more time to get things done in comfort. Find it online at Milkbar Breastpumps ($69.95).
Do single or double pumping with easy access to a pumping panel on the Simple Wishes Super Mom 3 in 1 Bra. Seamless fabric means it’s almost invisible under clothing when worn with the removable foam cups. Buy online at Nursing Angel ($64.95).
Pump with ease
Holds the pump securely in place while you read, write, text, surf, tweet, shop online or tend to bub. Pick your favourite colourful, printed Pumpease bra from the Pumpease online store ($49.95). There’s an organic cotton version, too.
This one has a zippy little feature – a zip up the front makes it easy to put on and take off. A layered, crossover slit design helps create a better seal for your pump. The Haakaa Hands Free Pumping Bra is available from Breastmates ($49.90).
In place with lace
This lacy number looks just like the bras you used to wear before you had a baby! The pretty Dairy Fairy Hands-Free Nursing/Pumping Bra is available from the Fluffy Mama ($69) and Tess Nursing Chemise (top image) from Dairy Fairy ($69).
