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, will be a big help if you’re returning to work after maternity leave, and can be a lifesaver for exclusively pumping mamas! So which breast pump should you choose?
Things to consider when choosing a breast pump that’s best for you:
Is your breast pump heavy?
Do you need a breast pump that’s easy to take on a commute, or does weight not matter if you’ll only be pumping at home?
Is your breast pump 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 breast pump 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 is one of the smallest and most efficient portal hospital grade breast pumps in Singapore – super quiet and lightweight at just 850g.
