Designed by a New Zealand company, the Haakaa breastpump exemplifies Kiwi ingenuity!
The Haakaa famous silicone breast pump is a bit of a misnomer as it actually does not require manual pumping but works by creating suction and pressure on the breast. This means it does not make any noise and does not require electric plugs or batteries.
You will need to pump it slightly by hand to start your let down, but then you can simply attach it to your breast for hands-free pumping. Attach while feeding on your other breast, or when you need relief on the go.
The 100 ml or 150 ml capacity means it can capture more precious breastmilk, making your life easier.
Made from 100% food grade silicone, this compact pump is perfect for long distance trips, planes, car rides, family BBQ's or anywhere you would like to discretely express silently and quickly. Simply suction to your breast and let the pump do the work for you as it draws your milk using suction. 100% eco-friendly and safe for mum, baby and our environment.

How to use your breast pump:
- Sterilise your pump (caps are available online to purchase – caps keep the pump sterile after cleaning)
- Place top of pump over your nipple – make sure your nipple is in the neck of the pump and comfortable.
- Apply suction – you may need to adjust a couple of times. Once the pump is secure and comfortable you can squeeze the base of the pump (not interfering with the top/suction) to create some movement.
- A warm flannel on top of your breast is also a great tip and gently massage the top of your breast.
- Once milk begins to flow simply leave the pump alone to do its thing.
- Once the pump becomes full empty into a glass storage bottle and reposition.
- If the pump is full or you wish to stop pumping – simply suction the suction base to the table next to you while you finish your feed or re dress and the pump is 100% secure.
Also attach in the same way while your child is feeding on your other breast and collect all let down and milk which would other wise be lost into a breast pad.
Waking up in the middle of the night or if engorged during the day also attach your pump for relief.
