Manual Breast Pumps

Perfect for the occasional pumper.


This is for a mom that might need to pump a bottle once a day or every blue moon. This style pump is small, lightweight and easy to transport in any diaper bag. These manual pumps either come with a grip that you squeeze to express your breast milk, or create their own suction.

Manual Pump that creates its own suction.

A good option is to purchase a 100% silicone breast pump, that create is own suction. We recommend the NatureBond Silicone Manual Pump made of 100% food grade silicone. It's easy to use and comes with a storage pouch. Furthermore it is dishwasher safe as well as it can be boiled to sterilize. While the pump does come with a lid, we recommend pouring your fresh pumped milk into a baby bottle or milk storage bag for safe transport.

Manual Pump where you are in control of the suction.

If you prefer a manual pump where you are in control of the suction. The is a good option.  As with the pump above we recommend pouring your breast milk into baby bottles or milk storage bags for safe transport.

Single Breast Pumps

Single breast pumps are a good option for moms that are part-time pumpers. If you need to pump once or twice a day this may be the option for you. The downside with a single pump is that you can only empty one breast at a time. If your having a hard time choosing between a single or double breast pump we would advise to go with the double. The price difference between a single or double is in general not that big of a difference.

Double Breast Pumps

Double breast pumps are perfect for anyone that needs to pump daily or is planning on returning to work. Be aware that not all double pumps are the same. A good thing to look for is a hospital grade double breast pump. The motors on these are designed to have maximum suction enabling you to pump at peak efficiency.
