Why we recommend it: The Willow breast pump is a game-changer for breast-feeding. With the Willow, you can "pump wherever the day takes you." No wires, tubes or loud noises to deal with -- and no spills: milk flows into the self-sealing and spill-proof storage bags
What the experts say: Finally, technology has caught up with our on-the-go lives. In the most meaningful improvement to the electric breast pump since its invention, Willow has created a wireless, wearable pump that is silent, discreet, and pretty close to magic.
Why rent it: Breast pumps can be tricky. It's an intimate product, and what's deemed proper design can vary widely from one mom to the next. And then there's the elusive milk production factor: it may be that you intend to pump for a year but only end up needing it for a few months. We realize that not all moms have the same experience with pumping, which is why renting is the perfect option for flexibility and cost.
When you'll need it: Use it for as long as you're breastfeeding! The average length of breastfeeding is 6 months.
Details: Willow's smart technology responds to your body and maintains suction similar to a baby, enabling mobility without spilling a drop. It's also smart: download the free app to track milk volume, pumping history and individualized pumping tips. Best of all? You can get up to 20% more milk in each session. Optional accessory: reusable container inside the Pump.
