There are some NEW breast pumps in town! They’re called Spectra Breast Pumps. They offer three different variations, a manual breast pump called the Spectra Handy Plus, a double electric breast pump called the Spectra 9 Advanced, and a hospital-grade breast pump called the Spectra Dew 350.
I first noticed the Spectra Breast Pumps on Amazon. They were making it into the TOP 10 most popular list of breast pumps, which I thought was crazy because I’d never heard of them. Plus, their hospital breast pump kind of looks like a boob! Did anyone else notice? Anyways, the customer feedback is what caught my eye next. I was impressed.
The Spectra 9 Advanced Double Electric Breast Pump was even beating out Medela regarding customer satisfaction. That’s when I knew that I needed to do a little bit more digging.

The Spectra 9 Advanced Double Electric Breast Pump offers two phases, just like the Medela Pump In Style. It provides the stimulation phase, a rapid cycle designed to stimulate let down, and then the expression phase, which is a slower cycle, best for expressing milk. This Spectra Breast Pump offers two separate adjustments, one for the cycle and one for the vacuum strength, and having two individual adjustments means more options for comfort.
Did I mention that this Spectra Breast Pump also offers a large LCD screen that shows you exactly where you’re at during your pumping session? It’sIt’s pretty cool. The pump unit itself is super tiny and lightweight, and it will fit in the palm of your hand. Talk about convenience. Also, it comes with a built-in rechargeable battery that will provide 3 hours of pumping when fully charged. So you can pump on the go or plug it in and pump in place. This Spectra Breast Pump also offers DuaHygienic Protection, which means that the milk won’t cause backflow into the pump; therefore, your milk is never at risk. Plus, all parts are BPA Free.
Spectra Dew 350 @ Amazon here
The Spectra Dew 350 Advanced Hospital Breast Pump is designed to initiate, sustain, or increase one’s milk supply. Like I said before, this hospital breast pump will cost you less than $200.00! That’s unheard of! Most hospital-grade breast pumps will run you anywhere from $800 to 1500 dollars. This Spectra Breast Pump offers a single dial that adjusts both cycle and vacuum strength.It’s extremely easy to use, quiet, and it also provides backflow protection. It also comes with a handy microfiber designer tote bag and a little cooler with freezer packs to store your milk.
All three Spectra Breast Pumps, even the Spectra Handy Plus Manual Breast Pump, offer 24 mm standard breast shields. As of now, they do not provide additional sizes of breast shields. However, you can purchase the Spectra Silicone Messager, which helps fit smaller breast sizes. They are currently working on larger-sized breast shields, but the nice thing is that these Spectra Breast Pumps are versatile, meaning that they can be used with most other personal-sized breast shields.
Well, that’s just a basic rundown of the new Spectra Breast Pumps. I suggest reading the customer reviews on Amazon or anywhere else you can find them for more information.
