Best Breast Pumps

Feeling overwhelmed with the pump selection these days? Use this guide to find the best option for your needs.

If you're soon returning to work and want to keep feeding your munchkin breastmilk, a breast pump is a must. Even if you'll be home with your baby, a breast pump can help ease engorgement in the early days, allow your partner (or Grammy!) to feed your baby from a bottle, and make it possible for you to have an occasional evening out.

Since double-electric pumps are pricey (though still much less expensive than buying formula), many women register for a pump, so family and friends can pool together to gift it to them. Pumps are also part of Affordable Care Act, which means that some health insurance plans will cover the full or partial cost of one. Check with your policy provider before you buy, though, to understand any stipulations.

Whether you want to pump several times a day or just occasionally, the following eight breast pumps get high marks from American Baby.
