Breastfeeding pumps have many uses. You should select your breast pump according to what function you intend to use it for. For premature babies or women that need to pump 6-8 times or more per day then we reccomend investing in a more reliable breast pump such as the Medela Swing and Swing Maxi pumps for example. However for occasional use such as for going out on occasions then an electric or hand pump are better choices as they are more affordable. There are pumps available now that can be used on both breasts at once, making time lost pumping far less. If used in conjunction with a feeding bustier, mum can still get all her chores and work done at the same time!
