  • Simplisse Double Electric Breast Pump 1 of 8
    Simplisse Double Electric Breast Pump
    When I was in the NICU with my 34 weeker, the only thing I could do was pump because her heart rate would drop under any stress and she wasn't a fan of the boob. This is when a good electric pump comes in handy. Simplisse offers a gentle compression technology minimizing tugging and pinching on their Double Electric Pump. Unlike other breast pumps on the market, Simplisse breast cups are soft and gently puff in and out. You won't have to worry about being suctioned uncomfortably when it's time to stop. The fit makes things much easier on you and your breast. I love that in comes with lots of goodies too! A cooler, 2 gel packs, wet storage bag, and 4 collection bottles all in a microfiber tote bag. Perfect for when you need to pump on the go. See below, I am giving ONE to a lucky reader.
