The company behind our go-to humidifiers and air purifiers has allowed members from our Gugu Village to test their Select Cordless Electric Breast Pump. We had a number of new moms try out this pump. Some first-time moms, others are on baby #2 or #3, but we got lots of great feedback on this small, yet powerful pump.

I received this pump to try out and I honestly have nothing but good things to say. I love how I can take it anywhere with me because of how small and light it is. I had zero problems cleaning the pieces and it’s really easy to connect all the parts. I like the fact the flange has silicone to help create a suction but I do have a hard time trying to see if my nipple is inside the flange. Also, the pump is louder than other pumps I’ve tried but not loud enough to wake your little one if you pump in the room. Overall, I’ve really enjoyed using it!!
The crane pump is more compact and easier to clean than the pump I was using before. The flanges are silicone which is a great feature and a lot more comfortable. The actual machine itself is very compact and easy for traveling and for on-the-go moms. I plan on bringing it with me on an upcoming trip. Overall great pump- wish I had this one when I first started.
I was given the opportunity to try the Crane Select Cordless Electric Breast Pump. This is a nice little pump with some great features. The pump is lightweight and rechargeable which I really like! The silicone inserts make pumping really comfortable once everything is all set up. That said, I did find it a bit awkward to get the flanges on when double pumping and using a hands-free bra. Because the silicone is opaque and there is only one piece for the flange/diaphragm/valve of the pump, it is hard to see if your nipples are in the right place. Having it all one piece also made it hard (and sometimes a bit messy) when finished pumping and trying to clean up. I found the suction/my output with this pump was good – I might have had high expectations from other reviews who felt like this pump was way better than other options. I think the suction is very good, especially for a portable pump, but it didn’t increase my output vs my pump in style. I like that there are two expression phases, but the pump doesn’t switch itself from one to the other and doesn’t remember previous settings. Increasing/decreasing the pump speed causes the pump to pause so the transitions aren’t as seamless as I would prefer.
Overall, I love how portable this pump is and it would be really great for traveling and the price point is great for someone looking to pump sometimes. That said I’m not sure I would love it for my full-time working – 3 pumps a day/5 days a week – pump, but I could be biased since I’ve used two different Medela pumps for 15+ months of pumping.
I’ve been using this breast pump for two weeks and I’m really impressed. I’ve tried a few different ones now and I love that this one is smaller and that it’s cordless. It makes it really easy to take with me and use anywhere. This one is comfortable and works well. The bottles that come with it are of really great quality too. They’re a good size and shape and feel heavier like a nicer quality than a cheap bottle. It’s really easy to pump and then switch the top to have a nipple and use the bottle too. I’d definitely recommend it to someone looking for a portable/cordless pump.
Thank you to Crane-USA for allowing our moms to test out this awesome pump!
