I have been wanting to share my feedback on breastpumps a few months back but as usual, life as a stay-at-home mom is as unpredictable as ever. But here we are today, thanks to Fazleen who suggested and motivated me to share reviews about them.
The next few posts encompass my experience and opinion about the breastpumps I have used so far, namely Medela Swing, Medela Lactina, Spectra 3 and the latest addition to my breastfeeding journey, Medela Freestyle.
Breastpumps, especially electric ones from reputable brands, do not come cheap. However, investing in a better quality one does help to ensure a smoother breastfeeding experience (I can attest to this!). When choosing a breastpump, there are several factors to consider. Are you a working mom or a stay-home mom? How long do you plan to breastfeed? How frequent are you planning to pump? Where will you be using the pump? What’s your budget? For guidance, check out some useful tips from Babycenter and Mayo Clinic.
Here’s a brief comparison table on key features of the above mentioned pumps (For clearer view, please click on the table).
Stay tuned for the next post as I share my feedback on Medela Swing.
