Top 5 things to consider when choosing a breast pump

Here at New Beginnings, we recognise and appreciate the individuality of every mum, that's why we've listed the top 5 things to consider when choosing the best breast pump. 

1. Purpose

Choosing between an electric or manual breast pump is crucial. If you have an established milk supply, a manual pump or single electric breast pump may suffice for relieving engorgement at home. However, if your a busy mum and time is of the essence, an electric breast pump might be your ideal option.

2. Portability

Opt for a breast pump that is portable, fits in your bag, and can be used anywhere. Look for models that can be powered in the car (like a USB power outlet).

3. Expressing Settings

Consider a breast pump with adjustable settings for stimulation/massage and expression/suction phases. The stimulation phase triggers the let-down reflex, while the expression phase efficiently pumps milk. Having control over suction strength will give you a whole new level of comfort whilst expressing.

4. Sound

Whether you're pumping while baby is sleeping or at the office, choosing a quiet breast pump will ensure minimal disturbances.

5. Price

While quality breast pumps can be expensive, consider your needs and budget. 

Whether you need a breast pump for regular pumping, to increase your milk supply or even as last minute help for engorged breasts, these 5 tips will help you choose the right breast pump for your needs.
