Looking for the best breast pumps in Singapore? Here’s a handy guide for breastfeeding mamas, including discounts and promos just for you!
Buying a breast pump is a big decision when you’re breastfeeding – it can aid in increasing your milk supply, and will be a big help when you return to work after maternity leave! So which one should you choose?
Things to consider when choosing a breast pump that’s best for you:
– Is it heavy? Do you need one that’s easy to take on a commute, or does weight not matter if you’ll only be pumping at home?
– Is it loud? Some breast pumps are quieter than others, so it’s worth reading the reviews to see what other mamas have to say about its sound.
– Can you pump hands-free? Most older models will require a hands-free pumping bra, but there are also some nifty new breast pumps that are so discreet that you can pump under your shirt while out in public!
– How much does it cost? Are you willing to spend more on a convenient, ticks-all-boxes model, or can you compromise on some of the functions for affordability?
We’ve listed out the best breast pumps nursing mamas can find in Singapore, plus tried-and-tested Sassy Mama faves!

The Cimilre S6 Plus (S6+) is one of the smallest and most efficient portal hospital grade breast pumps in Singapore – quieter than a library and lightweight at just 850 grams. The brand hails from Korea and has been around for some 20 years, founded by Uzin Medicare who are also the brains behind Spectra. The Cimilre S6 Plus (S6+) is a Rechargeable Hospital-grade Double Electric Breast Pump with hands free breast shields that can fit under a nursing or wireless bra (without the need for a hands-free bra). It comes with an adjustable massage mode to stimulate let down, and 12 expression modes to help mothers achieve their maximum milk output. The memory function is great for saving your preferred settings so you can immediately start your pumping sessions without spending extra time readjusting the modes.

It also has a soft night light to help mothers navigate the pump in the dark and is conveniently portable with a rechargeable battery that can last up to 4 hours.

“The Medela Pump in Style Advanced has to be one of the OGs in the breast pump market. I loved that I could easily strengthen the suction with the handy dial, and it was fairly easy to assemble once I got the hang of it! The stimulation function often released my letdown within seconds, which was encouraging for me as a first-time mama. Mine came with its own bag that was easy to carry around, with the option to remove it to be placed in my other bags. It’s also easy to get replacement parts affordably should you need to change the tubes, flanges or membranes.”

“The first time I breastfed, I got myself a manual pump, yes one of those where you’re actually milking yourself and it was a total disaster, on top of my total breastfeeding failure overall. With the second baby, I was determined to get it right. I’d been to countless baby fairs in Singapore and I keep seeing one brand of electric pumps that piqued my interest: Spectra. I was really unsure about getting it and kept thinking that perhaps European & American brands would be better (old school thinking, right?). But after reading many reviews, I went ahead and I’m super happy with it. Many of the functionalities can also be found on other brands, like the massage function to stimulate milk ducts before the actual pumping. I especially loved the fact that it’s hospital grade AND easy to transport. AND rechargeable (so no pesky cables if you’re pumping outside your home!). Often you have to choose between these 3 key features for me but this Spectra model (Spectra S1 Plus) had it all!”

PS. There’s also the new Spectra Dual S that’s currently getting rave reviews from lactation consultants worldwide! Check it out if you’re a mama who needs to pump several times throughout the day.
Manual breast pumps are often inexpensive and great for collecting letdown on one side while latching your baby on the other. Or simply collect milk when you feel the letdown coming! They’re also useful for relieving engorgement in a pinch. These are huge lifesavers in the early newborn days and can help to easily build a breastmilk stash in your freezer for emergencies.
