What Took So Long? Finally, A Genius Breast Pump That Doesn’t Suck

In March 2014, Samantha Rudolph read a New York Times article titled “Shouldn’t the Breast Pump Be as Elegant as an iPhone and as Quiet as a Prius by Now?”

She couldn’t agree more. So, together with her husband Jared Miller, the then child-free entrepreneur decided to build a better breast pump — one suitable for women living in 2016.

Fast forward two years, the couple now have an 8-month-old boy and a company called Babyation.

The St. Louis-based startup is dedicated to developing innovative new products for families, with their first product being a “revolutionary” breast pump.

Forget bottles hanging off breasts and noisy pumps — the Babyation pump promises a more quiet, comfortable, and discreet experience for nursing moms.


“We don’t mean to be dramatic, but we think this breast pump will literally change the lives of many women,” Rudolph told The Huffington Post.

The Babyation pump has comfortable breast shields designed to mimic the feel of a nursing baby and is much quieter than conventional pumps. Long tubes collect milk into bottles to give women the option of keeping their tops on while pumping.

The pump also comes with an app, which allows the speed and suction of milk to be adjusted. It can also track how much milk each breast expresses, the length of the pumping sessions, which side(s) is pumped, the time of the last pumping session and much more.

This fantastic product is the subject of a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of raising $50,000 (predictably, it’s already been exceeded). You can pre-order the pump for a discounted price of $350 here.
