Hi All, We are going to discuss Best Electric Breast Pump – Spectra S1 & S2 Breast Pumps. This unit comes in Spectra Baby USA S1 (blue) and Spectra Baby USA S2 (pink) models. They’re both excellent choices.
The S1 is a tiny bit more expensive than the S2, but it has the option to switch to battery power in case you can’t or don’t want to use the power cord. It’s a little thing, but that rechargeable battery pack could really open up your world when you’re pumping exclusively.
Both products are robust and can last for months or even a year, depending on your usage. They make quick and comfortable work out of pumping your breasts, and you won’t need earplugs when you operate this unit either – it’s extremely quiet.
Both pumps are lightweight at just over 3 pounds. With the Spectra S1 or S2 pump, you can express milk one breast at a time, or you can do both breasts at once. While some electric pumps are loud and attract attention, this one is quieter.
Another key feature is that the pumps have a closed system, which means your milk particles won’t go inside the actual motor. This is a more sanitary choice if you need to lend out or give away your pump when you’re done.
The pumps have a letdown mode that signals your breasts to release their milk supply. It also comes with a timer and a night light, which is a welcome addition for those 2 a.m. feedings!
