 - If you are a mother who works and, at the same time, you take care of the house, it is best to choose an ergonomic model that you can transport comfortably and that allows you to extract quickly and easily.

- If you suffer from any illness or setback with your breasts and it hurts when he sucks, it will be better to have a complex model that intelligently regulates the vacuum available and, likewise, the pressure does not hurt you.

- If, on the other hand, you have little time and you need to feed your baby quickly, a double electric pump may be a good choice. Thanks to its double bottle technology, it will be easier and faster to express milk from both breasts.

After having clear the scenario to which it will be used and adapted to your lifestyle, it will be time to show you the latest developments for 2021 in electric breast pumps:


The first of them is the S1PLUS from SPECTRA BABY USA, whose main characteristics are that it has a closed system, that is, it is not necessary to clean the narrow tube because it has a pumping system that keeps the tube dry, preventing air from flowing between the milk itself and pumping tubes while pumping is performed. This helps protect your breast milk and baby from bacteria, mold, and other viruses while the pump is taking place.

In addition, it has a practical built-in rechargeable battery, and each mother can customize the pump settings according to how her own body responds and track her flow until she finds the most suitable setting for her, using the suction process that takes two phases and that goes from suction mode for milk discharge to natural extraction mode.

This pump is very innovative, light, silent and portable, and has a technology similar to the natural suction of babies, and a very favorable point that mothers love is that it has a night light so at night they will not wake up the baby or the couple, in addition, it weighs less than 1.5kg, so transporting it will not be a problem, and it can be used in both a single and double extraction version for both breasts.




The second that came to innovate the extraction technique is the ELVIE, since it is the first hands-free extractor that is worn without cables, tubes or containers, this being one of its most notable characteristics. It is a pump and milk container at the same time, it is so small that it fits in the nursing bra, and it is completely silent. In addition, it operates in two modes simulation and expression and can be customized with 7 different intensity settings. Includes two cup sizes and a third can be purchased separately. Importantly, the battery charges in two hours and the pump can connect to its own free Elvie app to monitor milk volume in real time, have a report on your pumping history, and control pumping remotely. If you are one of the moms who has a lot of milk, the internal container holds a maximum of 5 ounces (148 ml) of milk; So, if you tend to fill more, you will need to empty it in the middle of the session.

It is a small puller, the size of the palm of your hand, and can be attached to a belt using a clip, or carried in a purse. Milk is stored in cups that are shaped like the breast and fit inside the bra. Each cup can hold up to 8 ounces of milk (236.5 ml.). The extractor is rechargeable via USB or standard plug. In addition, it has a programmable sleep timer that allows you to express milk while sleeping. Another nifty option is that it allows you to buy the Freemie cups only, and use them with another compatible extractor (including brands like Ameda, Spectra and Evenflo). It is important to note that the battery usually lasts an hour, approximately, and although it does not make a lot of noise, it is not silent either. Another important aspect is that there is a tube that goes from the cup that is in the bra to the pump, which can be hidden but will be felt under clothing.

Thanks to this, the mother will be able to carry out other tasks with the time saved. It can be used on all kinds of occasions, whether you want to express milk occasionally or if you want to express continuously. The model has been prepared to perfectly simulate the baby's sucking; This way the breast and nipple of the mother will not suffer, hence it can be used daily. In addition, it has a system that helps promote long-term milk production, thus, the baby can be guaranteed that he will have breast milk throughout the lactation stage. Also, it is a very discreet device and makes very little noise, so you can perform the extraction anywhere. Its programming is with buttons, and that has been somewhat unfavorable for not having a touch screen, but they have released a new model with the same characteristics as this one, but it adapts the improvement of the touch system being the Free Style Flex.

This electric pump has 2 suction modes with 10 intensities each, which simulate the behavior of the baby: a first stimulation phase, which favors the release of milk, and another extraction being its main characteristic. It also has a universal funnel size that adapts to any size of breasts, and a particularity is that it includes as an accessory the Natural feeling bottle with nipple, which replicates the baby's natural sucking form.



Another interesting proposal is THE AVAILAND NATURE SMART3. This portable extractor is designed for frequent use, rather for the home, since the motor unit is somewhat heavy. Availand uses Smart3 technology which is a 3-phase extraction concept: massage, pressure and absorption. It is quite silent and the power in each phase can be regulated up to 9 levels, so it can be adjusted as the mother feels best.
