  • Direct latching is the goal when you're a nursing mama. But expressing milk via hand or a breast pump is often necessary when you are at work or you need to be away from your child for a certain period. 

    If you're a busy mom who needs to express milk in a short amount of time, an electric breast pump may be ideal for you. But if you're mostly at home with your baby, then consider buying a manual breast pump. They're not as pricey and might be a little faster and easier to do than expressing breast milk by hand. 

    Some manual breast pumps double as milk letdown catchers, too. While you're breastfeeding on one breast, it collects milk leaking on the other breast simultaneously. Here are the manual breast pumps to choose from:

    1. Haakaa
    Php950 (100ml) and Php1,250 (150ml)

    This silicone, safe and environment-friendly letdown catcher requires no complicated cord or batteries! It's unique, but many moms swear it suctions milk from your breast and does a better job than some electric breast pumps.


    Available at Rustan's and Mothercare or online at Milk & Honey, The Nest and Babymama.ph
