10 of the best breast pumps for mammas who want to express themselves

Posted in Breastfeeding.

It’s World Breastfeeding Week and while you’re born with the tools of the trade, a handy breast pump accessory can certainly help. Here we give you a roundup of our favourite breast pump picks!


The Philips Avent Comfort Breast Pump is a popular choice with new mums – we even had a few nursing mammas try it out for us! It’s as comfortable as all get out thanks to the silicone attachments, but what really seals the deal is the fact that it’s electric for no fuss pumping.


Another electric breast pump is the Difrax BtoB Breast Pump. Beautifully discreet, a breast shell nestles into the bra and milk travels down a tube directly into a bottle for easy feeding later.


Familiar bottle and dummy brand Nuk also makes a breast pump. The Nuk Luna Single Electric Breast Pump has the option of running on batteries, perfect for expressing on the go.


For a huge range of pumping options under the one umbrella, try Medela. From the sweet and simple Harmony manual breast pump to all the bells and whistles of the Symphony double electric breast pump, Medela has your breast pump needs covered.


From Tommee Tippee comes the Closer To Nature Electric Breast Pump with Express & Go Starter Kit bundle. The Closer To Nature milk pouches means there’s no transfer required so not a single drop of your precious milk is wasted.


Manual breast pumps are excellent for occasional expressing. Perfectly sized for popping in your bag, the Ardo Amaryll Manual Breast Pump is super comfortable and can be used by both right and left-handed mums.


The compact Pigeon Electric Breast Pump Pro lets you quickly and easily choose a comfort level to suit your needs.


From handy manual models to full hospital grade designs, Spectra has a breast pump to suit everyone. The Spectra S2 Hospital Grade Double Electric Breast Pump includes a night light, a timer and a ‘let down’ mode, brilliant for mums who find it difficult to express milk.


If you know you’re going to be expressing a lot, you’re likely to be looking for the whole kit and caboodle of electric breast pumps. The Grow Diana Dream Breast Pump Pack includes a hospital grade pump, breast shield kit, and Grow milk storage bags – that’s a whole lot of value!


For those planning for a bub next year, keep your eyes peeled for the launch of Babyation. Having kicked their Kickstarter goal, the breast pump with a technological twist is set to launch March 2017.


Finally, how best to store your liquid gold. Take care of your breast milk storage needs with Philips Avent Breast milk storage bags and cups. Nothing feels more defeating than spilt milk when trying to load up the freezer, this way, you’re safe as houses!
