Moms who are looking to express their milk on a budget normally choose a manual pump.
Even though pumping manually takes longer than their electric counterparts, you can get a nice efficient pump for under $50.
Here are some benefits of manual pumps:
- They are typically silent and thus more discreet than an electric pump, which can be quite noisy at times.
- Allow you to control the intensity of suction to mimic your baby’s sucking more closely.
- They are extremely lightweight and portable.
- Manual pumps cost a fraction of what some more elaborate electric models do.
