Such a great hands free option
Evita on Sun 17 Nov 2019I used the Elvie single pump during my exclusively pumping journey alongside a Medela pump. I loved Elvie as I could use it whilst walking, whilst holding my little one, whilst cooking or cleaning the house. It’s amazing if the baby is fussy and wants to be held a lot. It was also amazing during the night and early morning pumping sessions as it was quiet and didn’t wake my little one up. If you are looking for a pump to use every now and again to give your baby top ups then I would go for a cheaper pump instead. The Elvie pump would be ideal for mums who have other children so are not able to sit still for 20-30 minutes whilst they are pumping. It would also work well for when mums return to work and might want to make pumping quiet and discreet. I have done excessive amounts of research on exclusive pumping and have learnt that one of the best pumps to go for is a Spectra pump. I would buy it the next time around if I had to pump again. When it comes to output then I found that both Medela and Elvie gave me similar amounts, however there were times when Elvie wasn’t very consistent, especially if it wasn’t put on right.
