P.s. most of these pumps don’t come cheap.

Whether it is you’re trying to stockpile a freezer full of milk in preparation for going back to work, or a new exclusively-pumping mama cause baby just won’t latch well, here’s a list of the top eight breast pumps in the markets so you won’t have to pore through the spec sheet.
