Breastfeeding can be an amazing and rewarding experience for new mothers as you bond with and nourish your little one. For mothers who are pump-dependent or pump more than 50% of the time, using the hospital-grade (multi-user) Symphony PLUS® Breast Pump is the ideal option. However, for mothers who are pumping less than 50% of the time – such as those who are returning to work or just going out for an evening with friends – having a personal use breast pump allows flexibility to pump on the go.

As a new mom, it can often seem as though there just aren’t enough hours in the day to balance motherhood and all the other responsibilities you may have. If that sounds anything like your own life, then you may want to consider the added flexibility that hands-free pumping offers for busy, multitasking mamas. Hands-free breast pumps provide many unique benefits – They are often lightweight, compact, and easily portable, designed specifically for the active mom in mind. If you fall into this category, here’s just a handful of what parents like you love most about pumping hands-free with a compact double-electric breast pump and pumping bustier:

Greater Freedom

One of the best benefits associated with hands-free pumping is the freedom to use your hands while pumping – meaning, they’re not full while holding your breast pump, shields, or other accessories for your entire pumping session. Whether you use this time to check your email, relax with a book, scroll through your newsfeed, or get ready to leave your home is up to you. Regardless, the ability to spend less time solely devoted to pumping and more time multi-tasking means that you can check a few more things off that to-do list while still providing every drop of that liquid gold to your little one and without sacrificing your breast milk supply.

Improved Mobility

You can also do more than just use your hands while pumping! Medela’s Hands-Free Pumping Bustier was designed for convenience, comfort, and support. It holds your breast pump and shields securely in place, so you can move freely and stay on the go – whether you’re pumping at home, in a lactation space at work, or while traveling.

Simple and Easy to Do

Hands-free pumping is something that can be done relatively easily, so long as you have a quality pumping bustier to pair with a lightweight, compact double-electric breast pump. Our Hands-Free Pumping Bustier is ready to use in 4 super-simple steps:

  • Hook: Fasten the bustier at the front.
  • Zip: Zip it up from the bottom.
  • Insert: Place a breast shield on each breast beneath the bustier, with your nipples centered in the tunnels.
  • Attach: Finally, attach a connector to each breast shield and ensure your assembled breast pump is connected!

Our Hands-Free Pumping Bustier is also easy to clean; it can be machine washed and tumble-dried. The last thing we want to do is make pumping more complicated, so our breast pumps and accessories are designed to be easy to use – which means less time stressing and more minutes out of your day spent enjoying your new baby instead!
