Let’s talk breast pumps… more specifically, ones that allow you to multi-task without cords or bottles. Like a mum hack only better, wearable breast pumps are a nifty tool to have in your breastfeeding arsenal.
A wearable breast pump is a cordless electronic device that sits independently inside your nursing bra, using suction to draw out breastmilk. Like a helpful friend that takes care of things in the background, these discreet little assistants extract precious liquid gold whilst you’re getting on with your day. Talk about time-saving and being able to get more done.
What to look for when buying a wearable breast pump
Quiet operation: look for a wearable pump that features a quiet motor. Noise-reducing technology will mean that it’s more discreet for use out and about, or at the least won’t disturb your sleeping baby when you’re home.
Range of suction levels: to ensure a comfortable and efficient pumping experience, many pumps come equipped with modes like ‘massage’ or ‘expressing’ as well as a range of suction levels that you can adjust to suit you.
Capacity – you’ll want to know exactly how many mls of breastmilk each pump can take, especially if you’re going about your day with it working in the background. Most pumps have a capacity of between 150-180ml per pump.
