The Spectra S1 is the breast pump that moms have been waiting for. We would even go so far to call it the "Cadillac" of breast pumps. In fact, it's so comfortable and efficient, you'll wonder if it's even working at first, until you look down and see ounce upon ounce of that "liquid gold", aka, breast milk effortlessly being expressed. It's so quiet you'll question it's pumping prowess, but again, you'll see results in no time flat. It's easy to use, portable, and hygienic. Need we say more? Okay, okay…it is a little pricey. In fact, it was the most expensive pump we tested. However, we urge you to consider the fact that not only are you investing in a machine that will contribute to the very nourishment of your child, but it could also become your constant companion, accompanying you to work, on vacations, on a mom's night out, etc. In our opinion, it's just about worth every penny.

Spectra has a new battery powered breast pump available now. The Spectra 9 Plus Advanced Double Electric Breast Pump is made for moms who value portability. It can be used as a double or single pump. Reviewers say that the pump itself is slightly bigger than a soda can. With the lightweight and small profile, some suction power is lost in comparison to the S1, but depending on your needs it may be worth it. This pump retails at $250, almost $100 less than the Spectra S1Plus.
