  • For many moms, prolonging their breastfeeding without putting them under house arrest is possible with a breast pump. They also choose electric breast pumps because they want to pump faster and more comfortably. 

    When buying your electric breast pump, you may want to consider how much sound the motor makes and the portability. Some electric breast pumps offer many modes or suction levels (from mild to intense). There are some who have flange sizes for every type of breast. an incorrect size could lead to pain, less expressed milk, or a lot of liquid gold waste.

    Unlike more than decade ago, moms now have more options for electric breast pumps alone, and you can find one for your budget. Here are the electric breast pumps you can choose from:

The Swing and Freestyle are both heavy-duty breast pumps. The only difference is the Freestyle has a rechargeable battery while with the Swing, you need to plug it.
