Evenflo Breastpump Review and Giveaway

Evenflo

Breastfeeding may be best for baby, but there’s no denying that it is a major commitment for moms. For moms who need a little more flexibility in their schedules or who plan to work outside the home, breast pumps are an essential purchase.

Towards the end of my pregnancy, I spent a lot of time researching breast pump options. I planned to breastfeed, but I also wanted my husband to be involved in feeding the baby and the option to continue breastfeeding once I returned to work.

There are so many different breast pump models on the market, and deciding between them can seem confusing. So many factors influence breast pump purchases. In my opinion, the biggest factors are budget and frequency of use. Every mother needs to weigh those factors before picking the pump that fits her lifestyle. Someone who rarely pumps may be content with a manual option or a single-pump. More frequent users generally want automatic, dual breastpumps.  While hospital-grade breastpumps can cost hundreds of dollars, you can find high-quality occasional-use models for well-under $100.

I received a review sample of the new Evenflo Comfort Select Performance Breast Pump from MomCentral. This occasional-use pump was designed for moms on-the-go. It’s compact enough to fit in a small gym bag, large purpose or diaper bag, and you have the option of using batteries or an AC-adaptor as the power source.  All of the components are BPA-free for baby’s safety. 

For mom’s comfort, the pump offers soft inserts for a better fit and a vacuum-control dial to adjust suction pressure. A baby sucks at around 60cpm, and this pump can work at up to 57cpm. While this is a dual-pump, there are two motors. This great feature allows you to adjust the suction for maximum effectiveness on each breast. Moms recovering from mastitis or a nipple infection will appreciate this feature.  

Best of all, the Evenflo Comfort Select Performance Dual Electric Breast Pump is budget-friendly. (I found it for just $69.99 on Amazon.)  If you are looking for a reliable occasional-use pump, this new and improved Evenflo pump is an affordable option.

    For first time moms, my tip is to know that it is not easy. Which, incidentally, is my tip for those just entering into marriage, too. :) I think it’s one of those things we expect to come naturally, but it’s a lot of work!

    What a super giveaway. My best breastfeeding tip is to use heat and lanolin and squeeze like crazy to get those pain/knots/soreness out!

    I found it best not to fall into to much tracking of which breast your baby has nursed from. When it is late and you tired chances are you wont remember.

    i used my hair band on my wrist to remember which side to feed my child on first.

    At the beginning I would never nurse without a cloth diaper/ burp cloth tucked under the other breast. I had that kind of milk that shoots across the room! Even though I was nursing on one side, the other side would invariably leak. Nursing pads were a must too! I am stocking up for baby #2, due any day now.

    I found breastfeeding to be really difficult, it took me weeks before everything fell into place. My tip is to not buy the Boppy pillow for nursing. I found it made baby too high & I used some pillows instead.

    I not to mention my guys have been reading through the nice ideas from your site and so the sudden got a horrible suspicion I never expressed respect to the web site owner for those secrets. Those ladies are actually so warmed to read all of them and have pretty much been loving them. Many thanks for really being quite accommodating and also for selecting this kind of helpful ideas most people are really desperate to understand about. Our own honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.
