Since this breast pump is powered by your hand compressing the handle over and over, you don’t have to worry about plugging into an electrical outlet or having fresh batteries at the ready. But doing all the pumping action yourself can get tiresome.
That’s why this pump is best suited for moms who only need to use a breast pump from time to time. The pump uses a two-phase suction system to stimulate your milk flow in the same way that let-down does when nursing. That means you express more milk in less time.
The pump is lightweight and easy to toss in a bag. And unlike electrical breast pumps, there’s no obnoxious motor hum. Some moms even swear it does the job faster (albeit one breast at a time) than an electrical breast pump.
