Is The Elvie Breast Pump Worth It?


Hatchery_blog10-wearable elvie pump in nursing bra

‘Fits in your bra, and your life’ - given its amazing features and life-changing benefits, the Elvie Pump’s motto definitely holds! Most of you may have already come across this revolutionary UK brand online or through word-of-mouth.


A newborn baby breastfeeds every 2-4 hours on average, with each session lasting 20-30 mins, which will take up most of your time in a day since you are confined to a chair and pumping with wires with an external machine. The wearable and lightweight Elvie Pump gives back some of your time as it redesigns breastfeeding for modern lives - making it possible to pump anytime, anywhere.


Is the Elvie Breast Pump really worth it? The short answer is yes. For the longer version, read on for more.


How does it work?

The Elvie Pump fits in your bra and your life! To start your pumping session, place the pump in your nursing bra, then turn it on by pressing the ‘Play’ button on the electronic Hub or the Elvie app. The Elvie Pump has 2 different modes and 7 varying intensities to fit any mothers’ pumping needs. By default, it starts with the Stimulation mode and automatically switches to Expression mode when it detects a let-down - how smart!









Size matters

Elvie Pump is the smallest and lightest all-in-one wearable electric breast pump. The Elvie pump's seamless shape allows you to tuck it discreetly in your nursing bra - giving you the confidence to pump anywhere. Don't let your pump sessions stop you from completing your mom tasks!


Silence is golden

The world’s first silent breast pump, backed with revolutionary technology, eliminates noise so that you can pump in peace. No more awkward pumping noises, just peaceful pumping sessions anytime, anywhere!


Hassle-free

Do away with the fiddly parts and complicated tubes with the Elvie pump! With only five parts to clean, it's the fuss-free pump that every super mom needs. Elvie knows how precious time is to moms out there, so the pump must be easy and quick to assemble! It only takes seconds to put together or take apart the pump - no cords, no wardrobe changes, no fuss! (psst, we tested taking apart and putting the Elvie pump back together. Our record holder took 19 seconds to complete the challenge! Watch the video here!)


State-of-the-art breast pump

The Elvie Pump uses state-of-the-art technology to let you control your pump from your phone, making it a truly hands-free experience Thanks to the app, you can monitor real-time milk volume, track pumping history, and get custom pumping insights without ever reaching into your bra. The Elvie Pump will also automatically stop pumping once it detects full milk volume output!


Make it double

The Elvie Pump is available either in a Single or Double Pump. When it comes to pumping, demand = supply. Keep in mind that it’s best to have relatively equal pumping sessions on both sides to maintain a similar supply for both breasts.Hence a double pump would work wonders for maximum efficiency!












Warranty & Care

The Elvie Pump has a 2-year warranty on the electronic Hub and a 90-days warranty on the washable components from the date of purchase. For cleaning and sterilization, boil the washable parts for no more than 5 mins. We do not recommend UV sterilization as it may risk warping the structure.


With a dedicated Elvie Customer Care team to provide support and assistance, you can reach them via email or through the Elvie toll free hotline.


Choosing my size

One of the washable parts of the Elvie Pump is the Breast Shield, which is available in 3 sizes - 21mm, 24mm, and 28mm. Getting the right size depends on your flange (or nipple) width, which may change during your pregnancy, and breastfeeding journey. The Elvie Pump includes the 2 larger Breast Shield sizes (24mm and 28mm) by default, and the 21mm Breast Shield is available for purchase if you find you need a smaller size.
