Breastfeeding mommies unite! Congratulations on choosing to breastfeed; you’re providing your little one with the best possible start in life. Your breast milk is filled with vital disease fighting nutrients and immunities made-to-order; it is no wonder breast is best! If you’re planning on returning to work or simply looking for more flexibility, you’re going to need a breastpump. A good breastpump can easily become your most used and necessary baby item so let us help you choose the right breastpump for you.
How to choose the right breastpump
Taking care of a little one is no small feat. You’ve done your research and picked out the best diapers, wipes, shampoo, soap, crib mattress, sheets, and much more. Still, we’re sure there are a few things left on your to-do list and we can help take one of those items off of your plate!
Choosing the right breastpump takes some research as well as expert advice. This is where we step in…
When choosing the right breastpump there are a few things to take into consideration:
- Are you planning on pumping exclusively?
- Will you be pumping at work or on-the-go?
- What accessories will you need to enhance your pumping experience?
There is no shortage of breastpump manufacturers to choose from; however, not all breastpumps are created equally. Brands we love and trust include, but are not limited to, Medela and Ameda!
The Medela Pump In Style Advanced Starter Set comes mommy recommended and is one of the most popular breastpumps on the market. Their patented 2-Phase Expression technology is a feature many moms rave over because their pumping experience closely resembles that of their suckling infant.
When choosing the right breastpump, many moms gravitate towards Ameda’s Purely Yours. The only breastpump on the market with a closed kit system, moms can pump with ease knowing their breast milk will be free of mold, bacteria, and viruses.
When choosing the right breastpump be sure to understand what comes with the basic insurance pump. Some insurance breastpumps will come with a carrying bag, bottles, or even a breastpump that is able to work via AC Adapter or batteries. What is important to you in a breastpump? Is it portability, discretion, or simply a breastpump that is reliable and extracts more milk faster?
Thankfully, if the pump you choose does not come with all of the accessories you will need, they more than likely will offer such accessories in either an upgrade breastpump package or for individual sale so you are able to customize your pumping experience.
Accessories that often make your pumping experience more convenient and enjoyable include:
- Breastpump cleaning wipes
- Steam bags
- Extra bottles with lids
- Breastpump bag to hold all of your essentials
- Lanolin cream
- Battery pack and/or extra power source
- Hands-free pumping kit
