Let’s talk breast pumps… more specifically, ones that allow you to multi-task without cords, tubes or bottles. Just like a mum hack only better, today’s handsfree and wearable breast pumps are a nifty tool to have in your breastfeeding arsenal.

Placed inside your nursing bra, wearable pumps use motored suction to draw out breast milk while you’re getting on with your day. Like a helpful friend that takes care of things in the background, these discreet little assistants extract precious breast milk while we’re cleaning, cooking, exercising, working, washing, playing or just relaxing.

Talk about time-saving and being able to get more done.

What to look for when buying a wearable breast pump

Before you decide what to buy, you need to know what you can buy and why. We’ve answered some basic questions to help you understand what’s available, and what you might need.

Is it essential: No

How much will it cost: $100 to $600

How long will you use it: Up to 2 years per child

Would you purchase before baby arrives: No

Accessories available: Assorted flange sizes, portable travel cases, power adapters

Wearable Breast Pump Features to Consider

Comfort: we found that when we were using the correct flange size for our nipple, it was the most comfortable so look for a pump that either comes with a few different flange sizes or measure your nipple before ordering.

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.

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.

Battery life: most wearable breast pumps have a battery life of 100-210 minutes of continuous pumping, charging can take 2-3 hours so we recommend setting up the charger when you head to bed so it’s fully charged for the day ahead.

MGV tip

If you feel like the pump is too heavy or not supported enough in your bra, pop a tight-fitting boob tube style top over the of your bra as well. Holds it all in.

  • One happy mum said “Yes definitely easy to use! I also always wear a boob tube style crop top over my bra. This just holds everything in nice and firm. I do find they aren’t overly discreet. Like they feel bulky but I can’t fault how well they work. My milk supply has not decreased at all” – Sarah
  • “I wouldn’t have been without mine to be honest. I expressed all feeds for my bub and he contacted napped for the first 6 months so the wearable pumps were fantastic! Anywhere we went I took them and chucked them on, to my parents or in-laws, out to breakfast. Literally anywhere! Even just trying to get stuff done at home, it was super easy putting them on and still being able to do what I needed” – Ellora said in her review

  • Another parent left the review “They are awesome. Allows so much more mobility while pumping. Can cook dinner, clean, do the laundry, etc all while pumping!” – Monica

FAQs, Your questions answered

What is a wearable breast pump?

A wearable breast pump is a hands-free, compact device designed to fit discreetly inside your bra. Unlike traditional breast pumps, which require you to be stationary and connected to a machine, wearable pumps allow you to move freely during use. 

Can I use a wearable breast pump if I have inverted nipples?

Yes, wearable pumps are generally suitable for mums with inverted nipples. These pumps use gentle suction to draw out milk, and the flexible silicone shields conform to various nipple shapes and sizes. Some models may offer additional accessories or customisation options to accommodate different nipple types.

Are wearable breast pumps suitable for all breast sizes?

Wearable breast pumps are designed to accommodate various breast sizes. Many come with different sizes of silicone shields or flanges, allowing you to find the most comfortable fit for your breast size. It’s important to choose a pump that offers a range of sizes and adjustable settings to ensure a proper fit for comfort and output.

Can I use a wearable breast pump while breastfeeding?

Absolutely, wearable breast pumps are designed to provide flexibility and convenience, allowing you to pump while breastfeeding or in between nursing sessions. We’ve heard from loads of mums who used the pump on their alternate side during feeding to catch letdowns and build up their stash.
