Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

Even if you are in a situation where you can stay at home, at some point, whether for personal comfort or for the babysitter, you will still likely want a breast pump. Because frequent use of a manual pump can lead to hand cramping, fatigue, and frustration, a manual breast pump is best for mothers who anticipate only the occasional need for pumping. Manual pumps are smaller and quieter than motorized pumps, so you can easily pack one in your diaper bag for emergency situations. They are also more affordable and more versatile than motorized pumps. The best rhythm for a manual pump is a quick double-squeeze as it more closely mimics a baby's suck than one long squeeze does.
