Everything You Need to Know About Spectra Breast Pumps
We’ve been hard at work talking to pumping and nursing mamas about their pumps and which ones they love. We first talked about Medela and today we’re going to talk about why Spectra breast pumps are among the most popular pumps on the market.
Spectra breast pumps extract milk equally as well as any pump on the market. Here are a few reasons that nursing moms love these pumps:
1. Spectra breast pumps are very quiet and lightweight
What is great about Spectra breast pumps is they are much quieter than other pumps. For moms who pump in the office and are worried that co-workers can hear the pump, having a quiet pump is very important. Also, if you have to take conference calls while pumping, a quiet pump can make that possible.
Additionally, the Spectra S2 weighs in at only four pounds, which makes dragging it to and from the office a breeze.
2. Spectra breast pumps offer a closed system
A closed system simply means that your breast milk doesn’t flow back into the tubing. It’s a more hygienic system that ensures your breast milk won’t be contaminated by mold or bacteria.
3. Spectra breast pumps have highly customizable settings
The Spectra breast pumps have adjustable suction in both the expression and letdown modes. This allows you to find a setting that works best for your pumping needs. By being able to adjust settings, you can find one that is pain-free, making it more likely you will stick to your pumping goals.
4. Spectra breast pumps have built-in value-added features that make pumping easier
The Spectra breast pumps include an auto-timer, which is great for letting you know when you should stop pumping. It’s easy to get engrossed in other things while pumping and realize you’ve been hooked up to your pump for much longer than necessary! It also has a backlight so you can see the settings and timer in the dark for those late-night pumping sessions. While none of this actually affects the actual pumping, they are value-added features that can make the hours you spend attached to your pump feel a little bit more luxurious.
5. Spectra breast pumps offer two pumping options
The main difference is the Spectra1 has a built-in battery that lasts for 3 hours (when fully charged). The Spectra S2 does not have a built-in battery.
If you want a super portable pump, the S1 is for you; however, it is a little bit heavier than the S2. If you know you are always going to be near an outlet, then the S2 is your best bet as it’s lighter and you won’t ever have to think about charging a battery.
