Technology is finally catching up to pumping moms everywhere. “Willow” a Wearable Wireless Breast Pump was just unveiled this week, at CES 2017, and already moms everywhere are getting their bank cards ready.
Quiet, Portable Design
Two sleek white pumps fit seamlessly inside your bra, and under your shirt. The suction mechanism is supposedly just like an infant sucking, and seems to cover the breast more naturally than current pumps. And it’s Smart. Like, really smart. Willow automatically senses your letdown, and adjusts the pumping draw and speed accordingly. You don’t have to touch it to manually switch speeds, or wait a set amount of time.
No wires or tubes – and it connects to your smartphone
The system is wireless and can last 2 days on a single charge. The milk storage bags fit right inside each unit, in a simplified design that can go straight into the freezer or poured into a bottle.
You can track your volume pumped on an app directly on your phone. Which of course, is freaking awesome. I mean it’s 2017 already and this FINALLY feels like the breast pump of the future!
FDA Approved and Foodsafe, BPA Free Plastic
The bags are truly innovative and connect directly to the flange mechanism for spill free collection. Cleaning the pump is easy, as there are only 2 parts to clean.
Cost is rumoured at about $420, which pretty much rivals the existing, noisier and bulkier, pumps currently on the market. The Willow is available in Spring 2017 and you can sign up on their website to be alerted when it’s released. Visit www.willowpump.com for more information. I personally would LOVE to try one of these babies out.
