Haakaa - The Best Silicone Breast Pumps
Aug 01, 2020
Haakaa is a 100% family owned business, originally launched in New Zealand by a mum struggling to find non toxic products for her special needs daughter. The brand is named after the traditional “Haka” war dance of the Maori people, which means 'Be a strong fighter, find strength by choosing to smile through whatever challenges life brings'.
Their breastfeeding pumps have become famous all over the world as quiet and convenient manual breast pumps that use natural suction to draw milk from the breast. It’s their flagship product and the success has led to a huge range of other high quality, non toxic baby products. If you’re looking for eco friendly, non toxic breast pumps, teethers, nipple shields, milk savers, and so much more, Haakaa is here for you.
Their silicone breast pump is made from 100% food grade silicone (as are many of their other products). Everything in their range is BPA, PVC, and phthalate free, so you know they’re safe for your little one. They even use sustainable and recyclable packaging materials for all their products.
If you’re fed up with noisy, intrusive electric pumps, these natural suction breast pumps give you a discreet way to pump at home or on the go. You can even use them to safely and hygienically store breastmilk in the fridge for later, thanks to the flat bottom and upright design.
To use the Haakaa pump place it over your nipple, squeeze the bottom to encourage letdown and then let the milk collect in the container. All their manual breast pumps are soft, comfortable and super easy to use and are even a great way to catch excess milk, when feeding on the opposite breast.
There are so many amazing products in the Haakaa range but here are a few of our absolute favourites:
This is the latest Haakaa breast pump and it’s so much more than just a manual pump. It’s an all in one pumping and feeding system to make your life easier. Use the Haakaa gen 3 just like previous generations to manually collect milk then switch out the top for a compatible bottle teat to feed your little one. No more spillages when pouring milk and less clean up, so you can pump and feed quickly and easily.
These breast shields are designed with an extended teat to put space between the nipple and your baby’s mouth. They’re a great option for anyone who suffers from inverted, cracked or painful nipples. The thought of ending your breastfeeding journey early is upsetting but the Haakaa nipple shields could be just the solution you’re looking for.
The Haakaa syringe is a safe, fuss free way to give your little one liquid food or medicine. The soft teat style end mean baby can suck as if feeding, rather than the liquid being forced into their mouth, and the angled ports reduce the risk of choking. This is a gentle alternative to standard syringes that won’t cause baby stress.
