Breast pump gadgets to offer to the moms of respite


Two companies have launched bombs laptops to help breastfeeding mothers to collect their milk in motion.

Women that use breast pumps are often applied to them several times a day, and during the periods of around 20 minutes or more.

However, in general, they have to be plugged in to a power outlet and the pumping mechanism is noisy.

Both the Willow and the Freemie Freedom pump are designed to be used more discreetly placed inside a woman’s bra.

Unlike traditional pumps, which are powered by rechargeable batteries and are very quiet.

Both are on display at the CES technology fair in Las Vegas.Stressed moms

“Mothers have a lot of stress, have an outlet in the wall, they are often isolated in a small room and they have to get out of life,” said Willow chief executive Naomi Kelman.

“A teacher told us that she had to stop and go in a supply closet to pump.”

Willow won an award for its device at CES in 2017, since when the pump has been available to buy as a test of the beta, but now is the launch on the market, retailing in the US for $479 (£354).

Has faced some criticism online from those who have tried it, including the comments of the bags, which contain 4 oz (118ml) milk, they are too small.

A spokesman said that in the future “options exchange” of different sizes, and he added that the pump can be stopped, while the smaller bag is changed over.


The Freemie Freedom pump comes with 8 bags.

It is the first portable product of harm to the Health, which launched its first wearable pump in 2013, after 10 years of development. Until now their devices have required a power outlet.

It has a “sleep” that shuts down after a certain amount of time if the user you want to fall asleep while pumping – even though many of the women find that difficult.

Co-founder Dr. Stella Dao, an emergency physician, and her husband, Dan Garbez came up with the idea when his twin babies were born prematurely.

“They were in the neonatal intensive care unit, my wife realized that she was having the use of your breast pump 10 or 12 times a day, which forced her to take off her clothes, and do it for 20 to 30 minutes to an hour,” said the Lord Garbez.

“The point that I made is that your employment situation is difficult and demanding, but many of the women around the world have difficult and demanding jobs and may not stop what they are doing and the use of a breast pump.”

Willow comes with an app currently only for iPhones – that women can use to make a follow-up of the production of milk.


The Freemie Freedom, in contrast, does not, but is compatible with other applications on the market, said the Lord Garbez.

Sells for $300 in the united states and is also included in some health insurance plans.

Tech analyst Carolina Milanesi of Creative Strategies, said that it was heartening to see the products on the market that offered women a greater flexibility.

“In the busy life that we are living in and in the attempt of women to a better balance between career and family that I am sure of a welcome of the best solutions to empower those that I do not have to give priority to one over the other,” she said.
