Certain, I may stroll round with it and wasn’t tethered to the wall—however I wasn’t hands-free, since one hand needed to carry the pump, and leaving the home meant packing the most important diaper bag we owned.

I needed one thing that I may extra simply transfer round in, and simply pack if I wanted to pump on the go. And I ended up discovering that in a special pump: the Pumpables Genie Advanced.
