Whether you’re breastfeeding or not, you may need to use a breast pump to express breast milk. Here are the main types of breast pumps you’ll find
A dual breast pump – or double breast pump - is one that allows you to express from both breasts at the same time. That means there are two breast shells and two milk collection bottles – basically, a standard electric breast pump that’s doubled.A dual breast pump can cut down the time you spend expressing, because you’re pumping both breasts in the time it takes you to do one. However, they do tend to be bigger than single pumps so less portable, and some mums mention they feel a like they’re in a dairy!
