While a manual breast pump isn't meant for everyday use, it can be especially practical for occasional pumpers, while travelling and as a back-up when the power gets knocked out. To find the best manual breast pumps, we put a bunch through all sorts of tests, looking at how easily they could be cleaned and assembled, whether they leaked, and how much noise the handle makes during pumping (some can be really squeaky). Plus, we sent the pumps out to moms to get real-life feedback on comfort, ease of use and quality. Here are the manual breast pumps that got top marks, earning Today's Parent Approved seal.
