Parenting Expert gets a real life parent to review the Fraupow Wearable Breast Pump.
Hello, I am a mum of two and had my second child in October 2022 and I have been asked to review the new Fraupow Wearable Breast pump for Parenting Expert. There are 10 years between my children, and so much has changed since my firstborn – I am not sure that wearable breast pumps even existed when I had my first child. I was therefore excited to give this a try. My partner has been very supportive throughout pregnancy and birth, trying and testing things that could help our family life – what works best for us isn’t always best for others and we both like trailing new gadgets, especially where our new baby is concerned!
What’s in the box?
- Breast pump
- Pump carry bag
- Bra strap adaptor
- Various size funnel adaptors
- Charger cable
It took a while to get my head around all the bits that were in the box – some of the extra attachments didn’t come with any instructions, so I had to work out what they were for. However, I soon worked it out.
The actual product looks smart, feels really good quality and isn’t too heavy.
The Fraupow Wearable Breast Pump looks really good and feels like it is a quality product. It comes with lots of attachments that can be a little daunting initially but I soon for the hang of it. I liked the strap for your bra to ensure that everything fitted comfortably. The little storage bag was a really useful addition and meant that it was easy to take the pump out and about with me when I needed to.
I found the pump really easy to keep clean which is beneficial when you are a busy mum. It was easy to use and I liked the fact that it was so quiet too. It was also not too heavy – some that I had felt previously seemed really heavy in comparison. I was laso impressed with the battery life.
I really liked using the pump as it was simple and very quiet. However I have to admit that I was not very successful at getting large amounts of milk each time. However, this may not have been the pump and could be down to various factors. My milk supply has not been particularly high and I also have quite small breasts. I had to hold it on to keep the suction on my nipple so that I didn’t lose any milk during pumping.
- Really simple and easy to use with very little noise
- Good value for money
- Small enough to take out and about, particularly with the carry bag that comes with it.
- Was really comfortable
- People didn’t realise I was wearing it when using it out and about
- Battery life is really good and lasts a long time
- Looks really good
- Easy to pour the milk out of
What would you improve?
- Personally I think the suction could be stronger
- Hard to use with small breasts
Would you recommend this product to other parents?
I would 100% recommend this product and company! I’ve really enjoyed using the product and will definitely use it again in the future if I have any more children.
