Willow is a set of two breast pump wearables that are meant to be worn inside a woman's bra. An app on the wearer's smartphone tracks volume of breast milk and time spent pumping and logs that date for later use. Women don't need the app to pump, however— the product works entirely on its own to encourage the let-down reflex and then adjusts pumping based on the wearer's flow. When the bag is full, the pump stops automatically. One charge gets wearers at least five pumping sessions, and in a pinch, can do a single session on 20 minutes of charging. The idea behind Willow is to allow women to pump while still going about daily activities.

The Ardo Calypso — both the double or single pump version — is the quietest of all tested electric breastpumps. In comparison with many other commercially available pumps, it is only perceived to be half as loud, and it is still powerful. If a new mother wants to express milk regularly and for long periods of time without any restrictions, the Calypso breastpump is the most convincing choice. The quiet and powerful, yet pleasantly gentle means more peace and quiet for you and your baby.
Women decide to get breast pumps for various reasons such as to feed the baby via a bottle, relieve engorgement, feed twins, boost their milk flow, or for premature babies. A breast pump will also help keep your milk levels up if your baby is not feeding well. Otherwise, your supply will go down with time. It allows the mother to continue breastfeeding after returning to work or when you must travel without the baby.
