Best cheapest breast pumps for 2017


If you are expecting and need a way to store breast milk for when you are away, a breast pump is just what you need. This breast pump review for 2017 will guide you through affordable and easy means to store breast milk for your baby.

Types of Breast Pumps:


Manual Breast Pump
As the name implies, you would have to put in some effort by squeezing the lever or handle of the pump to release the milk from the breast. The milk moves from the breast to the storage cup or bottle at the end of the pump’s funnel. You can then unhinge the funnel and pump from the bottle. Maintenance of this pump is easy, as it does not have any tube or cord attachments.

Electric and battery-powered breast pump
This kind of pump usually comes with a timer, digital screen, memory, and in some versions, a night light. It is usually electrically or battery operated and comes with a small motor for suction, leaving your hands free to do other things.

Features of the best breast pumps 

There are certain features to consider before purchasing a breast pump, as well as where and how you plan on using the breast pump. If you are a working mother and want one in the office, it will have to be small and relatively quiet. On the other hand, if all of your breast milk pumping is going to be in the comfort of your home, there are other aspects to consider.


Warranty

If you plan on using the pump on a regular day-to-day basis, it is best to look for a pump that comes with at least a one year warranty. This way, if the motor gives out, you can get a replacement.

Double-Pumping

A hospital-grade pump works wonderfully for mothers who plan on pumping often. These usually come with dual pumps so both breasts can be efficiently expressed. Apart from the speed of the pump, double pumps deliver better milk.

Carrying Case

If you happen to be a mother always on the go, and you need a pump that is rather inconspicuous, a carrying case pump is a must. Some can come as a professional briefcase, a sporty backpack, or even a shoulder bag.

Insulated Storage Compartments

If you plan to pump on the go, choose a pump carrying case that comes with an insulated storage compartment for the milk for later use. Try to keep a couple of ice packs in the storage compartment to keep the milk cold.

Pump Weight

Carrying a breast pump around regularly can make even the lightest pumps feel heavy, especially with a briefcase or diaper bag. To ease the stress on your shoulders, it is necessary to choose a breast pump that is light and easy to carry.


Now that we have an understanding of the features of a great breast pump, below are the top five affordable breast pumps.
