Because breast pumping is not just about having a good breast pump. The whole journey is so much more than a product. In this magical journey, your body and your state of mind change. And all this would affect your breastfeeding journey. We know this because we are breastfeeding mothers too!
'Hospital grade breast pump' - the breast pump should be a closed system, where breast milk does not come in contact with the motor. Thus making it suitable for multiple users. It should also come with a range of suction levels/modes to suit different people.
All of Baby Express's breast pumps are a closed system, making them suitable for multiple users, and also preventing milk from flowing back into the breast pump motor. It also comes with a range of suction levels/modes to allow users to choose their preferred suction strength. Small and mighty, our pump's suction strength goes up to 300mmhg.
We believe that every breast pump that is available in the market are good pumps. Similar to clothing, every brand works differently for everyone. We believe that there is no one pump that fits all.
At Baby Express, being a working and breastfeeding mother ourselves, we understand the needs of Singaporean mothers better. We keep the essential functions of a breast pump and simplified the whole operating part. Making it user friendly, compact and convenient for modern mothers.
With effect from March 2023, all breast pump purchased also comes with online lactation consultation services to assist users in their breast pumping journey with Baby Express.

At Baby Express, we are not going to lie that any one of our breast pumps would definitely suit you. You can refer to the following chart to view the pump specifications and differences to find which suit you the best.
We sell our pumps individually to allow mothers to choose their own style of pumping. Some mothers prefer to pump 1 side at a time and some stay-at-home mothers who latch would only need 1 pump. Or simply just buy 1 to try out first and if it works great for you, you can always get another!
If you intend to exclusively pump, we would recommend that you get a pair as it helps to save time. Also, a pair would come in handy when you are pumping very frequently.

General Product Info
The warranty period for all products starts from the date of purchase or item received, whichever is later.
Do register your product within 7 days upon purchase and upload your baby's edd to postpone (breast pump only) the start of your warranty.
Applicable for breast pump(s) only
To postpone the start of your warranty, for any breast pump purchase made before the birth of your baby, you would need to upload your proof of estimated due date; doctor's card, or baby scan.
Postpone of warranty start date is limited to a maximum of 5 months. Should your purchase be made more than 5 months in advance, the warranty will start from 5 months based on the purchase receipt date.
All our pump parts can be steamed, boiled and UV sterilised.
Wiping the pump motor, especially the bottom, after use, with a damp cloth is also a good practice to keep your pump motor clean.
It is completely normal for pump parts to turn yellow when using a UV steriliser. This is due to the absorption of the UV pigmentation. Please refer to our pump part page to check out our recommendation on when to change your parts.
Do not flip breast pump motor and squeeze damp cloth while cleaning. Water droplets may enter the internal part through the air vent and damage it.
All BE breast pump comes with a default 24mm flange. They are also available in 27mm, sold separately. For smaller sizes, we have a range of flange inserts, ranging from 13mm to 21mm, that can be paired with our 24mm flange.
To have a smoother pumping experience, having a flange that fits nicely onto your nipple will help prevent some unnecessary discomfort/pain.
We recommend that you measure your nipple nearer to due date, or in the last trimester as nipple size may change. It may also change during the course of breastfeeding.
You can use a ruler to measure the diamater, add 2-3mm to the nearest available flange size. That is the general guide on the size to use. Alternatively, you can download our printable nipple ruler here or head down to any of our retailer to obtain 1.
It is recommended to measure your nipple size after giving birth or not more than 2 weeks before due date.
We highly recommend following the safety and hygiene guide provided by W.H.O. and CDC. They recommend all pump parts be washed thoroughly and sterilised before/after every use. This would help protect babies from comin in contact with germs.
Do note that refrigerating pump parts does not stop bacterial growth. Babies can become ill from contaminated milk due to bacteria grown on pump parts that were not properly cleaned. For more information, you can refer to CDC's website.
Unlike traditional breast pumps, our pump motor is connected directly to the pump parts. Refrigerated pump parts when brought out to room temperature may form condensation and any condensation on the diaphragm may get sucked into the pump motor. This will damage the pump motor and cause it to malfunction.
Our BE Mini X is compatible with wide neck bottles such as Avent and Spectra. For BE Free and BE Nude, milk is pumped directly into our collection cups and would need to be poured into storage bottles or milk bags for storage.
For other brands, please check out our bottle adapters for more information.
For Hegen bottles, pair it with their wide neck adapters.
Or pump directly into almost any milk bag with our milk bag clips.
