Best Single Electric Breast Pumps for 2021






When bringing baby home for the first time, it can seem overwhelming; so many things to remember and expressing milk can seem like just another job on your to-do list. However, the good news is that you don’t have to rush in to expressing milk, so if you’re not up to it immediately, you can prepare for it. It is worth having a breast pump on hand for when those times call for extra support to help increase milk supply.

Whether you’re returning to work, getting out for a date night, or sharing the nighttime feeding load, investing in a single breast pump will make life easier for you and your breastfed baby.
