Medela Freestyle on the go breast pump

Medela Freestyle Breast Pump

This is the pump to get if portability is important to you; it has a clip-on battery pack, so you can actually pump on-the-move. (One weeSpring user says she pumped while washing dishes, riding in the car, etc.) Moms absolutely rave about Medela’s customer service, too.

The Catch: Some complain that the suction isn’t strong enough.

Medela Harmony manual breast pump

Medela Harmony Breast Pump

While most parents opt for a double-electric, this handy little pump can be a lifesaver and is affordable enough to buy in addition to your workhorse pump. It’s quiet, discrete, and fits easily in your regular handbag — and some moms take it wherever they go. (One weeSpring editor used hers while in her airplane seat, with no one the wiser.) It’s also helpful if you get engorged; it can relieve enough pressure to allow baby to latch, and because it isn’t electric, it can be used anywhere (even the shower, which is many moms’ go-to for treated clogged ducts).

Price: $30.30

Medela Pump In Style breast pump

Medela Pump In Style Breast Pump

The far-and-away favorite among weeSpring parents. It’s a workhorse: reliable, easy-to-use, and effective. Or as one mom put it, “This is the Volvo station wagon of breast pumps; it may be a bit big and heavy, but it always works when you need it.” It comes built into its own bag, with space for all the requisite pump parts and a little cooler to keep expressed milk fresh.

Price: $203.70
