The Haakaa came onto the scene like a storm. The simple hand pump makes all of the sense. I mean, literally ALL of the sense. This genius contraption takes all of the parts and pieces and guesswork out of breastpumps. Literally.
Reason #1 – Parts & Pieces
Your friends might have told you about that pumping session when they were trying to get the pump washed out and dropped the valve on the floor right as they were really, really needing to get to pumping. Or, better yet, they couldn’t find the valve at all.
Most pumps have several pieces that have to be put together after washing or before use. The Haakaa completely eliminates that with this genius one-piece wonder.
Reason #2 It’s Easy to Clean
All of the yassssss. When you’re a breastfeeding mom, taking things apart and keeping them together and making sure they are sanitary for your liquid gold is of the utmost importance. This little ditty is so easy to wash out with a bottle washer.
Reason #3 It’s Great For Catching The Let Down From The Other Boob
You know that other boob that likes to let down at the same time as it’s friend? The suction on the Haakaa is so amazing that you can pop it on and continue nursing without having to hold it on or worse – lose out on that precious milk that could have been added to the stash in the refrigerator.
Reason #4 It’s Inexpensive
The Haakaa is affordable for any mom. You can easily have one in a diaper bag, one at work, one in your car, and one in the dishwasher – all for less than the price of most other handheld breast pumps.
Reason #5 It’s Lightweight and Easy to Conceal
If you’re all about being discrete or don’t want to add a lot of weight to your already bursting diaper bag, the Haakaa will happily go along for the ride without taking up much space or adding much weight. At just 5.6 ounces – yes 1/3 of a pound, this little wonder is an easy addition you won’t notice in your bag.
What’s more – the Haakaa isn’t big and bulky like most pumps, so you’ll be able to pump when and where you need to without making it that obvious.
Reason #6 It Fits All. The. Boobs.
Whether you’re rocking all the mom boobs or can barely notice you’re feeding a critter with those things, this pump is for you. It’s specifically designed to fit all of the sizes you can throw at it. No need to worry about whether you’ll fit or whether it’s not going to be able to get the suction it need to get the job done.
Reason #7 Save More Milk
With easy to use storage lids and the spout-like cup, you’ll be able to store your breastmilk in the Haakaa or easily transfer it over to a storage bag.
