Go Hands-Free! Busy Moms Need a Wearable Breast Pump

April 19, 2024

Tailored for busy moms on the move – which, let’s be honest, is all moms – wearable breast pumps (sometimes known as “hands-free”) can be a game-changer for breastfeeding moms. If you’re an expecting mother seeking convenience while pumping, you’ve landed in the right place. Edwards Health Care Services (EHCS) provides a range of wearable breast pumps covered in part or in full by insurance.

Choosing a breast pump that best fits your needs can be overwhelming so let the breast pump experts at EHCS help. We’ll also walk you through some popular hands-free brands (Willow, Elvie, Medela, and Lansinoh), how to use a hands-free breast pump, and answer common FAQs to ensure you have all the information you need. Let’s dive into this exciting journey of hands-free pumping!

Why Wearable Breast Pumps are Perfect for Busy Moms

Every mother knows how crucial it is to have a reliable breast pump. If you’re looking for convenience and flexibility, a hands-free breast pump is your perfect solution. Let’s explore why it’s the ideal choice for busy moms like you.

With a hands-free breast pump, you can multitask and make the most of your time. Whether you’re working, catching up on household chores, or simply relaxing, a hands-free breast pump lets you continue with your daily activities while expressing milk. The convenience it offers is unrivaled. Unlike traditional breast pumps that require you to be stationary, a hands-free pump allows you to move around freely.

Moreover, a hands-free breast pump helps maintain your milk supply. Regular pumping is essential to stimulate milk production and ensure a steady flow. With a hands-free pump, you can easily incorporate pumping sessions into your daily routine without disrupting your schedule.

At EHCS, we understand the needs of busy moms like you. That’s why we offer a range of hands-free breast pumps that are designed to provide comfort, efficiency, and convenience. Our pumps are equipped with advanced features, such as adjustable suction levels and customizable settings, to ensure a personalized pumping experience tailored to your preferences.

What’s the difference between a wearable breast pump and a hands-free breast pump?

Wearable and hands-free breast pumps offer distinct advantages and cater to different preferences and lifestyles. Wearable breast pumps, like the Willow Go and Lansinoh Wearable, are typically compact and discreet devices designed to be worn inside a bra, offering mobility and convenience for multitasking moms. These pumps are quiet and allow for discreet pumping even in public settings. On the other hand, hands-free breast pumps such as the Elvie Stride and Medela hands-free pumps are often worn with a pumping bra or other hands-free accessories and offer convenience through their portability. Hands-free pumps may have more features and pumping power suitable for longer or more frequent pumping sessions. You might prefer a hands-free pump if efficiency and output are more important than extreme portability. Ultimately, the choice between wearable and hands-free breast pumps depends on the mom’s needs, lifestyle, and priorities, whether seeking portability and discretion or focusing on efficiency and performance.

Choosing the Right Wearable Breast Pump

When it comes to selecting a wearable or hands-free breast pump, it’s essential to consider various factors to ensure you find the best fit for your needs. Let’s delve into the comparison of top pump brands, the factors to consider when making a decision, and the importance of balancing cost and features.

Comparing different brands can help you identify the one that suits your requirements the most. While all of our breast pumps are high quality, it’s crucial to consider your specific needs and preferences. Our hands-free breast pumps are designed with innovative features to enhance convenience and comfort during pumping sessions.

When making a decision, remember to consider factors such as suction strength, noise level, ease of use, and portability. Our hands-free breast pumps offer adjustable suction levels, ensuring optimal milk expression without discomfort. Additionally, our pumps operate quietly, allowing you to pump discreetly wherever you are. With their compact and lightweight design, they are perfect for busy moms on the go.

While cost is an important consideration, it should not be the only deciding factor. Instead, focus on the features that are most important to you. Our hands-free breast pumps offer exceptional value for their price, with a range of features to make your pumping experience efficient and comfortable.

Choose a hands-free breast pump that aligns with your needs and lifestyle. We understand the importance of finding the right pump to support your breastfeeding journey, and our team is dedicated to providing you with the best options available. Explore our range of hands-free breast pumps today and discover the perfect fit for you.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Medtronic MiniMed™ 780G System With SmartGuard™ Technology with Guardian™ 4 Sensor

The MiniMed™ 780G system is intended for continuous delivery of basal insulin at selectable rates, and the administration of insulin boluses at selectable amounts for the management of type 1 diabetes mellitus in persons seven years of age and older requiring insulin as well as for the continuous monitoring and trending of glucose levels in the fluid under the skin. The MiniMed™ 780G system includes SmartGuard™ technology, which can be programmed to automatically adjust insulin delivery based on the continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) sensor glucose values and can suspend delivery of insulin when the sensor glucose (SG) value falls below or is predicted to fall below predefined threshold values.

The Medtronic MiniMed™ 780G system consists of the following devices: MiniMed™ 780G insulin pump, the Guardian™ 4 transmitter, the Guardian™ 4 sensor, One press serter, the Accu-Chek™ Guide Link blood glucose meter, and the Accu-Chek™ Guide test strips. The system requires a prescription from a healthcare professional.

The Guardian™ 4 sensor is intended for use with the MiniMed™ 780G system and the Guardian 4 transmitter to monitor glucose levels for the management of diabetes. The sensor is intended for single use and requires a p rescrip tion . The Guardian™ 4 sensor is indicated for up to seven days of continuous use.

The Guardian™ 4 sensor is not intended to be used directly to make therapy adjustments while the MiniMed™ 780G is operating in manual mode. All therapy adjustments in manual mode should be based on measurements obtained using a blood glucose meter and not on values provided by the Guardian™ 4 sensor. The Guardian™ 4 sensor has been studied and is approved for use in patients ages 7 years and older and in the arm insertion site only. Do not use the Guardian™ 4 sensor in the abdomen or other body sites including the buttocks, due to unknown or different performance that could result in hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

WARNING: Do not use the SmartGuard™ feature for people who require less than 8 units or more than 250 units of total daily insulin per day. A total daily dose of at least 8 units, but no more than 250 units, is required to operate in the SmartGuard™ feature.

WARNING: Do not use the MiniMed™ 780G system until appropriate training has been received from a healthcare professional. Training is essential to ensure the safe use of the MiniMed™ 780G system.

WARNING: Do not use SG values to make treatment decisions, including delivering a bolus, while the pump is in Manual Mode. When the SmartGuard™ feature is active and you are no longer in Manual Mode, the pump uses an SG value, when available, to calculate a bolus amount. However, if your symptoms do not match the SG value, use a BG meter to confirm the SG value. Failure to confirm glucose levels when your symptoms do not match the SG value can result in the infusion of too much or too little insulin, which may cause hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

Pump therapy is not recommended for people whose vision or hearing does not allow for the recognition of pump signals, alerts, or alarms. The safety of the MiniMed™ 780G system has not been studied in pregnant women, persons with type 2 diabetes, or in persons using other anti-hyperglycemic therapies that do not include insulin. For complete details of the system, including product and important safety information such as indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions associated with system and its components, please consult https://www.medtronicdiabetes.com/important-safety-information#minimed-780g and the appropriate user guide at https://www.medtronicdiabetes.com/download-library
