For all the breastfeeding (or soon-to-be) moms out there, this mom find is for you! I saw this mini-breast pump, sometimes called a bullet pump, online and decided to give it a try. It was pretty cheap, so I thought that I might as well check it out. The pump is great! There are many versions of this pump, I’m sure they are all the same, but this is the one I purchased: Silicone Breast Pump
I started using the pump to build my milk stash before I went back to work. I would use the pump in the morning (the first feed of the day). I now use it every morning and I get about one bottle each time. The pump works through suction so you just give it a little squeeze and let it suction to your breast. This pump is great because no battery is needed so I just keep it next to my bed at night.
The only issues I have with this pump are the measurements on the side and the fact that the lid is not really secure. For both of these reasons, I pour my milk in a storage bottle after I pump. It is more secure, in case it gets knocked over and the measurements are correct.
This pump is not meant to be your daily full-time pump, but it’s perfect for quick pumping sessions when you don’t want the hassle of setting up a regular pump. This pump would also be good on the go, when you need to get a quick pumping session in. It is a great compliment to whatever pump you decide to use for your regular pumping sessions.
Give it a try!
