Their team of breast pump and feeding experts will ensure you have the information needed to make informed decisions.

What kind of pump should I select?

Double electric breast pumps are by far the most common breast pumps on the market, and deemed desirable by most women. “Double electric pumping” is a term used when a mom can pump both breasts at the same time. This is of course faster and more efficient for mothers, especially those considering breastfeeding exclusively and those who are on-the-go often. However, every woman is different, and we’re pleased to break down the different pumps available in the following flow chart, including the Ameda Joy, Spectra S1, Spectra S2, Spectra S9, Medela In-Style, and Zomee breast pump.

The flowchart below is compiled based on StorkPump’s long-standing experience in supporting moms through their breast pump selection. All questions are easy to answer and range from personal preference and style to experience. This allows all mothers and soon-to-be mothers the ability to easily select the right pump for them. From exciting features like a nightlight and digital display to lightweight and portability options, you’re sure to find a match! And, if you still need help, the lactation experts at StorkPump can gladly assist.
