- If you're a nursing mom who plans to spend more than a couple hours away from your baby, pumping is a necessary evil.
- It keeps your milk supply up and ensures your kiddo has enough to eat.
- The Medela Pump In Style Advanced is a great option for moms who want to get their pumping done quickly and easily.
Whether you're running an errand, taking a short trip or heading back to work full-time, you'll need a good breast pump to get you through those times when you can't breastfeed your baby directly. Using a breast pump when you would normally nurse your baby is critical since it tells your body you still need to make milk. It also helps you build up a supply of breast milk that others can give your little one while you're gone.
It's rare to find a mom who actually enjoys pumping, so choosing an effective breast pump that works best for your situation is all the more important. There are a number of expert reviews of breast pumps, and they've also inspired a ton of real-world feedback on retail sites. I also took into consideration my own experience pumping on and off for my two young sons. All of those perspectives yielded our picks for the best breast pumps.
We've included an easy-to-use model for working moms or any frequent pumper, an equally efficient pump that's also ultra-hygienic, a unique pump that keeps your hands completely free for multitasking, a lightweight single electric pump that's great for travel, and an inexpensive manual pump that's ideal for occasional use.
Here are the best breast pumps you can buy:
- Best breast pump overall: Medela Pump In Style Advanced
- Best closed-system breast pump: Spectra Baby USA S1
- Best breast pump for multitaskers: Freemie Freedom
- Best breast pump for travel: Yunbaby Portable Breast Pump
