Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump
My friend who is a leader of her local breastfeeding support group swears by Lansinoh’s manual breast pump for breastfeeding moms who only need to pump the occasional bottle. She says it’s all about the ergonomic handle! Manual pumps can also come in handy when you need relief from engorgement and don’t want to invest in a pricier battery-powered or electric model pump.

The soft whooshing sound of the Medela Symphony was the soundtrack to my first few days at home with my youngest daughter. She was having latch issues, and until we figured things out, I used this particular hospital-grade electric double pump as a way to help establish my milk supply. Need to pump exclusively? That’s what this baby was made for. The retail price may be hefty compared to other electric models, but hospitals and pediatricians’ offices typically rent them to moms for a reasonable monthly fee.
Medela Swing Pump
One at a time! This single electric pump from Medela makes the girls each take a turn, but with natural suction action, super-comfortable breast shield, and reputation for efficiency, many pumping moms say it’s worth the wait!
