Top Five Breast Pumps of 2019

A breast pump is a mechanical device that lactating women use to extract milk from their breasts. They may be manual devices powered by hand or foot movements or electrical devices powered by batteries or electricity.


Scientific American (1863) credits L.O. Colbin as the inventor and patent applicant of a breast pump. In 1921-23, engineer and chess master Edward Lasker produced a mechanical breast pump that imitated an infant's sucking action and was regarded by physicians as a marked improvement on existing hand-operated breast pumps, which failed to remove all the milk from the breast

Today, we have many choices on the market for breast pumps that it can be hard to know which one offers the most performance for your money.

Typically, a single breast pump are usually manually operated and are the least expensive types of pumps ranging from $20-$60. Single battery operated or electric pumps cost between $40 and $185. Double (or dual) pumps typically run on electricity, although some also provide the option of battery operation.


Check with your insurance provider as your health insurance plan must cover the cost of a breast pump. It may be either a rental unit or a new one you'll keep. Your plan may have guidelines on whether the covered pump is manual or electric, the length of the rental, and when you will receive it (before or after birth).
