We review our top picks of the best breast pump bags for working moms below.
Top Picks – Best breast pump bag for working moms
Sarah Wells Abby Breast Pump Bag
Chic, vintage-style and timeless, the nautical “Abby” breast pump bag is the perfect pairing for your breast pump. Available in 3 eye-catching colours (Berry,Blue and Black) the Sarah Wells breast pump bag is perfect for the always-stylish. A classic breast pump tote from the cross-body strap to the 100% real leather comfort handles.
With 8 pockets there’s lots of room for your breast pump, pumping accessories, keys, laptop, phone, and more.
- Real leather straps
- Lots of space (2 side pockets, 7 organisational pockets)
- On the pricier side
Luxja Breast Pump Tote Bag
The Luxja is a larger tote style breast pump work bag that can fit the larger double electric pumps like the Spectra S1 or S2. It supports both an over-the-shoulder sling strap (detachable) and carry handles. There are two outside-accessible zip pockets, one to fit a bigger electric breast pump and the other a cooler bag like the Kiinde storage bag which also comes ice packs that you can put inside the bag.
The material is a nylon type canvas which is practical considering you’ll need something fairly hard-wearing. Something that could be annoying is that once you take the pump out of the bottom pouch the top part of the bag tends to fall down, so you sometimes need to take the stuff out to put the pump back in. To work around this though, most people tend to just leave the pump in the back, open the zipper and pull the tubing out.
As a larger breast pump bag and with all the extra pockets we find there’s more than enough space for all your extra’s like lunch, keys, bottles and the pump A/C unit – the dimensions are 14 inches in length, 14 inches high and 8.5 inches wide. There is a laptop compartment as well that easily supports up to a 17-inch laptop.
Note – This bag also comes in a backpack option
- Budget friendly
- Separate Compartment for your laptop
- Space for a small cooler bag
- Lots of storage (both inner and outer pockets)
- Zips and clips could be stronger
A great bag considering that it’s on the cheaper side. The quality and material overall might not be luxurious but it’s decent enough. The big positive is that the Luxja has storage galore, so if you’re looking for a breast pump tote bag for work, that won’t break the bank, then this is a good option.
Mini Breast Pump Backpack
This is a more compact breast pump bag for working moms. It has pockets for a cooler bag and a built-in USB charging port for your phone. Being a little smaller it fits a range of manual and smaller electric breast pumps. So it will fit smaller electric pumps like the Medela freestyle but unfortunately larger double electric breast pumps like the Spectra S2 won’t fit.
Although more compact it does have a built-in cooler compartment at the bottom which opens up fully making it easy to get to.
- Stylish and compact
- Includes built-in USB charging port
- Built-in Cooler compartment
- Can’t fit larger double electric pumps
