As you’re picking your pump, you may be dreading the long hours you’ll have to spend stuck in the corner of a room by an outlet, handcuffed by your pump. But you can actually avoid all of that by getting portable breast pumps. If you’re searching for the best portable breast pump, the Freemie Independence and Spectra S9 are both great options to look at. Both of these lightweight breast pumps are easy to carry and come with a rechargeable battery. So, you won’t be stuck, plugged into an outlet or car adaptor every time you have a pumping session.
Spectra S9 Electric Pump
You may be wondering, “Should I get a Spectra S9?” Compared with the Spectra S2 and S1, the S9 is much smaller, lighter, and easier to carry around. The S9 can fit right in the palm of your hand because it’s about the size of a cell phone. And if you’re supplementing an S1 or S2 with the portable S9 — the same parts should work on both pumps. The Spectra S9 pump may not be quite as powerful as the other Spectra pumps or portable options. But the S9 breast pump is very gentle — even at its highest settings. Additionally, it has a closed system as well as backflow protection. So, you don’t have to worry about any mold or bacteria contaminating the pump and your milk.
Freemie Independence Mobile Breast Pumps
Similar to the S9, the Freemie Independence pump is a light, compact breast pump that can fit right in your hand. The Freemie Independence mobile pump comes with hospital-grade suction, and it’s very easy and straightforward to use. There are no apps, bags, or chords you have to mess with. You can stick the closed system cups right into your bra and put the pump on your hip or in your purse or pocket. Because it’s a quiet breast pump, you’ll be able to use it without being noticed. Plus, the Freemie collection cups are shaped to fit around the breast comfortably. So, you won’t be walking around with two bottles jutting out from your chest.
