Willow Smart Breast Pump
Move over clunky machines, the Willow breast pump is on it’s way to save busy nursing mums. The Willow smart pump promises to be a wearable device that’s tube and accessory-free. It’s small enough to fit inside your top and quiet enough for you take a work call while using it – bliss!
Milk is collected to an internal bag (so no need to be attached to a bottle) and the intergrated app tracks your milk volumne in real time. It’s intuitive, too, which means that it senses when let-down has occurred and seamlessly moves into expression mode without any effort from you. With a battery-powered pump that is said to last several days between charges, the Willow could be a godsend to mums who need to pump. It’s not yet been released for sale, but it should be available later this year. For more information visit their website here.
