If you need a more flexible feeding schedule or if baby’s having difficulty latching on, pumping can be a solution. And working moms often want a pump that’s both portable and discreet. Medela has you covered in both departments.


  • Plug it in or let it run on batteries; either way, Medela’s signature two-phase expression technology will express more milk in less time
  • With included accessories like bottles, breast shields and an ice pack, this system offers more than most pumps
  • Available in three portable versions: the on-the-go tote, metro bag and backpack


Discreet and efficient enough to help you express more milk fast, the Pump In Style Advanced is taking our office by storm.

Price: $270



Never heard of Limerick? Now you will. This under-the-radar brand makes the only 1.5-pound hospital grade pump on the market. And that’s not even the best part. Created by two lactation consultants, Limerick’s patented suction technology mimics the way your baby actually suckles, rather than rely on the push-pull motion of most pumps.

Price: $525
