Why Consider a Wearable Breast Pump?

Pumping breast milk is a route that many moms choose when it comes to feeding their babies. Some women feed their babies exclusively with pumped milk or use it in addition to breastfeeding or formula feeding. 


Whatever your situation, a wearable breast pump can make pumping sessions feel less like a chore.


There’s no arguing that breastfeeding is incredibly convenient. You can breastfeed your baby anywhere on demand without any prep work or cleanup. But there may be many reasons why moms choose not to breastfeed and prefer pumping their breast milk instead. 


Using a breast pump may be less painful than breastfeeding a baby with a poor latch or who has learned to bite with their first few teeth. Pumping your breast milk is also a great way to keep track of the actual number of ounces your baby consumes in a day and gives other caregivers the ability to feed the baby.


A traditional pump requires sitting next to a bulky machine plugged into the wall. Staying in one spot for the entire pumping session is not always easy when you have a baby. 


For moms returning to work or on the go with older kids, carrying the machine, tubes, cords, and other pump parts around with you is a hassle.


A wearable breast pump gives you the freedom to keep moving as you pump. Much like breastfeeding, you can use a hands-free breast pump anytime and anywhere.


Finding a breast pump that fits your lifestyle is important, and it’s equally as crucial to set up a calm environment where you can relax during some of your pumping sessions. Quality rest is one of many healthy habits that contribute to maintaining your milk supply. 


Set up a nursing station in your home where you can comfortably breastfeed or bottle-feed your baby, and use your breast pump.


A seat with power recline and an adjustable headrest like the Glider Plus will support you in the proper position for pumping sessions. Keep the Feeding Pillow within reach to help hold your baby as you feed them and give your arms a break.

Warranty

Electric breast pumps often come with a warranty that guarantees the product for a few months or years when you buy it directly from the company or a reputable retailer.

Budget

Breast pumps come in a wide range of prices. Check that the pump has your most needed features before paying a high cost. Your insurance plan may fully cover a traditional pump and may work with you on covering the cost of a wearable breast pump.

Flange Sizes

A wearable breast pump will come with a set of flanges in one or two different sizes—usually 21, 24, or 28mm. Measure your nipple in millimeters with a fabric measuring tape or nipple ruler then add 4 mm to find your flange size


Using the incorrect size can cause pain or inefficient milk expression when pumping.

Dishwasher Safe

Keeping your pump parts clean is critical to providing your baby with safe breast milk and preserving the integrity of your breast pump. A breast pump with dishwasher-safe parts will make it easy to keep up with cleaning.

Suction Power

Look for a breast pump that offers hospital-grade suction to ensure it fully expresses all the milk from your breast at each pumping session. Many wearable breast pumps have varying levels of suction power and rhythm for customizable settings.

Battery Life

Before buying, consider how you’ll use your wearable breast pump and what kind of battery life you expect. Different brands and models can have a battery life that accommodates between threeand eightpumping sessions


If you plan to use your pump mostly at home, you might be able to recharge more often. If you have a long-distance trip coming up, a rechargeable pump with a longer battery life will be better.

Reviews

Veteran moms can be a wealth of knowledge when researching which breast pumps work well and which ones don’t. 


Scrolling through the most recent product reviews can draw your attention to issues you hadn’t considered, or validate your favorite choice.

How to Create a Feeding Station

It’s not only breastfeeding moms who benefit from a feeding station. Designating an area in your home to pump breast milk and feed your baby, will help you create a functional and enjoyable routine.


A nursing station or feeding station is your go-to spot for bonding with your baby while they eat and keeping your feeding supplies organized. 


Imagine a corner of your baby’s nursery with a glider chair next to a dimly lit lamp on top of a dresser that holds everything you need within reach. A setup like this will make pumping or feeding a stress-free experience.

FAQ’s

Are Breast Pumps Worth It?

This answer will be different for every mom. Consider your breastfeeding experience so far, your goals for pumping, and your budget to help you decide. If you’re struggling with your decision, reach out to a local lactation consultant for advice.

Do Wearable Breast Pumps Actually Work?

Yes, they do! Many moms find that hands-free pumps are ideal for their busy lives compared to traditional pumps.

Do You Need to Wear a Nursing Bra with a Wearable Breast Pump?

It’s not necessary to wear a nursing bra when using the pump, but nursing bras often have more adjustability than regular bras. Since you want the bra to hold the pump in place, a snug but comfortable-fitting bra is best. Nursing bras, sports bras, or wireless sleep bras may work well with a wearable breast pump.

Can I Use a Wearable Breast Pump While I Work or Travel?

Yes! These types of breast pumps were made to be used discreetly and on the go. The rechargeable battery means you can use your wearable breast pump anywhere without cords and plugs tying you down.

The Willow 3.0 claims 100% leak-proof pumping in any position.

What Is the Battery Life of Wearable Pumps?
