Best Hands Free Breast Pump
If you’re a new mother, you’ve likely asked yourself: what’s the best hands free breast pump for me?
It’s an understandable line of enquiry, because the market for baby essentials is full of affordable options offering various benefits. It can be daunting to choose just one, especially with the understanding that these tools and devices directly affect you and your baby’s personal comfort.
That being said, there are some universal points and key takeaways that will help guide you in your selection. Let’s talk about some of them.
What are the advantages of using hands free breast pumps?
There are two key advantages to a hands free breast pump: flexibility and convenience.
Let’s be frank for a moment: child-rearing is a serious commitment. For parents who decide to have children, their ability to move around the house or to perform regular household chores is among the first to be directly impacted by having a baby.
A discreet breast pump helps to alleviate some of the stress involved in child care. With a portable breast pump, you can set aside milk for your baby while they’re resting or sleeping. Once they’re awake and ready to feed, a parent can simply warm up a bottle of already-extracted breast milk, feed the baby through a baby bottle, and then return to a household task or relax while feeding the baby.
The best hands free breast pump allows mums to save time that can be better used for resting, taking care of their babies, or doing other tasks. Moreover, the knowledge that your baby can be fed at any time, from anywhere, with the help of a handy tool like a wearable pump, lifts a great worry from many parents’ shoulders and minds.
What to consider when picking out a hands free breast pump?
The best hands free breast pump options are straightforward enough: they free your hands so you can continue with daily routines while still providing for your baby. They help you do this by giving you both comfort and efficiency when nursing your baby.
If you’re looking for hands free breast pumps, you’re leaving manual pumps off the menu by default since they are operated by hand. Wearable manual breast pumps are available; however, if you’re truly looking for no-hands-involved in the milk extraction process, then you may have to consider other types of breast pumps.
Ultimately, the best hands free breast pump you’re looking for is the one that addresses a specific need, whether it’s a more comfortable breastfeeding experience, ease of breastfeeding, or feeding efficiency in a hectic household.
How often should breast pump parts be replaced?
Remember, you will be using your electric or manual breast pump frequently for the foreseeable future – you may need to replace a part sooner than you may expect. When you experience reduced suction, it may be a sign that some parts need replacing. Replace parts immediately when you notice tears or cracks.
There are the breast shields, or flanges. This is a cone-shaped part that fits over your nipple and is typically made of soft silicone for better flexibility and comfort for the wearer. These can be replaced every six months or when you notice wear and tear.
Other parts include the valves, tubes, connectors, and membranes, which help facilitate milk extraction. Valve membranes can be replaced every two months or sooner if you pump more frequently. Duckbill valves, on the other hand, can be replaced every two to three months. Backflow protectors can be replaced every three to six months, while tubing can be replaced every six months or when it becomes stretched or damaged.
Another key part of the best hands free breast pump options is the milk collection bottle: this is where the milk ultimately goes, and it’s where your milk is stored after pumping until you transfer its content to a different container. Check the device specifications if this too can be easily replaced, and research how to clean it thoroughly. It’s best to replace these every six months.
Finally, for hands free and portable electric breast pumps, you have the motor. If you’re using the breast pump correctly according to its manual, you wouldn’t need to worry about the motor. However, you may be interested in checking its energy consumption; if the voltage it feeds on isn’t compatible with the motor’s needs, you could damage the breast pump or make it operate inefficiently.
BabyHeart’s best hands free breast pump options feature these parts, with replacement or reusable options available for the parts that get used or handled the most. They also come in soothing designs and with discreet settings, so you can extract breast milk in both comfort and peace, whether you’re at home or on a trip with the family.
