Top 7 electric breast pumps

top 7 electric breast pumpsI had an electric breast pump … for one day.

In a sleep-deprived haze I failed to read the first instruction – DO NOT IMMERSE IN WATER – and I did just that after the first use. So it was “goodbye hundreds of dollars” and “hello manual breast pump” (thankfully it could be used as both!).

So I am clearly no expert on electric breast pumps. Although I am better informed than my younger brother, who (about 20 years ago) began giggling uncontrollably while reading the local newspaper classifieds. The source of his giggle? For sale ads for breast pumps, which in his adolescent mind were like bike pumps but for boobs!

What was I talking about …?

Oh right. Breast pumps … electric ones … it is coming back to me now.

Here are the Top 7 Electric Breast Pumps as voted by you in the Bub Hub product reviews section.

1. Medela Mini Electric

Medela Mini electric“The Medela mini eletric breast pump is fantastic. I used a manual breast pump for my first and it was so slow compared to this. It makes expressing so easy and quick. You can express anywhere. I tell everyone this is the one to get.” – Mel Dutney

“When i had my first daughter she was in NICU so i had to purchase an electric breast pump. I used it for 3 weeks solid every 4 hours and it was amazing! It had very good suction and i could fill a bottle in less than ten minutes with it.” – jes

2. Unimom Allegro Portable Breastpump

Highly recommended breastpump!  Been searching for a portable breast pump since I will be returning to work soon and I stumbled upon the Allegro.  Have been using it for a month now and all I can say is that this is a really good dependable pump – not to mention affordable!  Kudos to Unimom!” –  Mabs

“The Swing is by far my favourite ~ I use it every day and have done for 9 months now.  It is cheaper to buy than hiring one for months on end. I truly bless this pump everytime I use it, and wish I’d not stuffed around hiring and trying other pumps for so long.” – BaronessM
