Nuby Double Digital Electric Breast Pump 3.5

When it comes to juggling time with a newborn baby in tow every second is precious, if you choose to express your milk a double pump will halve the time you spend attached to a machine.

The Nuby Double Digital Electric Breast Pump comes with a built-in rechargeable battery that gives 3 hours of pumping away from the wall socket. This pump features 9 levels of stimulation and 9 levels of expressing mode, it encourages milk let down by mimicking the baby’s feeding action and drawing from the breast instead of uncomfortably pinching the nipple. In the box you get the Nuby Double Digital Electric Breast Pump, two Nuby combat colic bottles 180ml with slow flow teats, two bottle cradles, a mains adapter plug, bottle adapter to attach Nuby bottles for collecting milk and a dummy.

The touch screen display shows how long you’ve been using it and what levels it is set at. The gently backlit controls let you see what you need in the night without waking others or blinding yourself and lets you easily adjust the settings as needed. This pump is also quiet allowing you to express next to your sleeping baby or partner without disturbing them, the soft silicone shields provide a comfortable fit. Getting a precise fit takes a little practise due to the angle of the bottle, it is easier to sit up right or tilt forward a little to prevent any accidental leaks so it won’t be ideal for those looking to recline on the sofa or in bed. The pump has to be switched manually from stimulation to expressing which means you have to juggle both the bottles in one hand to reach for the button or utilise a toe. This pump comes apart effortlessly and can be cleaned quickly, the battery and compact size makes it highly portable, the teat can be attached straight to the collection bottle for fast feeding. If you are looking to use this pump regularly the risk of leaks and lack of an automatic switch over to milk collection might become irritating, but if you are looking to express a few times a week to allow someone else to feed baby to give you some freedom it is reasonable choice. RRP £145.00
