Hands-free breast pumping has obvious advantages. Not only does it give your arms a rest, it also releases your hands to do other things.
There are, fortunately, specialist pump bras designed to take the strain out of expressing. Find the right one, and you’ll be able to get on with eating, cleaning or working at a computer comfortably.
At first glance, they can look a little intimidating, so we’ve put together a guide to help you choose the best one.
Some particularly practical mums choose to make their own hands-free pumping bras. This is certainly the economical choice, but it’s not always the most convenient. After all, each time you need to pump you’ll have to fiddle with elastic bands and readjust the pump for a good seal.
Making your own pump bra might be cheapest, but specialist versions needn’t break the bank either. The HANDS FREE BREASTPUMP ADJUSTABLE BRA ($26.99), for example, costs less than $19 (get the 30% offer code: Madenalweb)and has all the features you’ll need, including an adjustable strap, an expandable zipper panel and an accommodating Velcro fastening for a comfortable fit.
