The BabyBuddha breast pump is quickly becoming one of the most popular pump brands available for pumping mamas today. If you've chosen to use this fabulous pump, it's important to find the perfect bra to go with it. As you are probably aware, finding a pumping bra that is comfortable and functional can greatly impact your breastfeeding experience! Read on to learn about our favorite pumping bras for BabyBuddha! 



The BabyBuddha is a hands-free breast pump with a rechargeable battery. Tiny but mighty, this product comes with an included lanyard, making this portable breast pump an excellent choice when you need to do other things during a pumping session. In other words, the BabyBuddha pump is designed for multitasking. Like many other popular wearable breast pump options, BabyBuddha partners with many insurance companies making access to a high-quality wearable pump affordable for all. They even offer in-house support to check your insurance coverage. 



​Notable Features of the NEW BabyBuddha Breast Pump 2.0:

  • The NEW 2.0 pump offers 21 different comfort settings; pumping moms are able to adjust the suction level in both soft and standard stimulation mode and expression mode. Plenty of options to find the right one for you!

  • The BabyBuddha 2.0 pump offers two different styles of pumping: traditional breast pump flanges (included) and wearable cups (sold separately). Love being able to swap back and forth!

  • Hospital-grade strength meaning this pump is considered a primary breast pump even at such a small size, making it even easier to express breast milk. I have traveled with this pump and accessories and they are super compact!

  • Access to trained lactation consultants to support you through your breastfeeding and pumping journey. This can be super helpful especially when just starting out.

My Experience with BabyBuddha 2.0

I have been nursing and pumping since my oldest was born in 2016, however, I didn't have the chance to try out BabyBuddha until recently while pumping for my third. I have been traveling for work, and since this pump is so small and portable it’s the perfect travel pump for a breastfeeding mom on the go. It’s great because you can use it with both flanges or collection cups and it can hack any different flange that you already love to use!

My favorite features on the 2.0 are the different settings that allow you to change into the soft stimulation mode instead of just the long pull that moms love or hate about the original BabyBuddha. If you are a big fan of the long pull, you don't necessarily need the 2.0 pump, but if you are new to pumping it's extremely beneficial to have the full range of levels!

Finding a good pumping bra with the right fit is crucial for successful (not to mention comfortable) breastfeeding. Think about it...whether you are nursing, exclusively pumping, or a little bit of both, your baby will need to eat every 2-3 hours for quite some time. You will be spending A LOT of time in these bras.

Not only will finding a pumping bra with the proper fit make pumping more comfortable, but it will also make it more effective. For the best experience with pumping, you want a bra that holds the flanges and bottles or collection cups securely in place, ensuring optimal suction. When it comes to a pumping bra for the BabyBuddha breast pump, below are my top recommendations for a bra that is going to be secure with their flanges and compatible with their collection cups. 


The Amelia Bralette 

The Amelia bralette is the perfect option for both pumping and nursing. The simple design of this bralette includes no additional layers to pull up or down, making it easy for flanges easily slide right in from the outside or collection cup in from the neckline. And lets talk about pump hold... this is one of the most secure pumping bras on the market! 

The Amelia bralette fits all styles of pumping flanges, wearable breast pumps, and milk catchers. The wide straps offer additional support, adding comfort to your pumping or nursing day. You can easily sleep in this bra too for those middle of the night pumps! Our top favorite feature of the Amelia Bralette are the reinforced flange slits to hold every size flange you could imagine! I promise, this one won't budge! 


The Riley Bralette 

The Riley is a highly supportive lace pumping bra with an adjustable closure on the back, that also provides some extra chest coverage with its V-shaped mesh front design. While the Riley doubles perfectly as a nursing bra with the one-handed strap sliders, it is also a mama favorite option for exclusive pumpers! Just like the Amelia Bralette, the flange slit has strong reinforced edges to accommodate every size flange! It's also super unique to be fully covered while the flanges are attached, with no layer to flip down!


The bra cups on the Riley have the perfect amount of space to place the BabyBuddha flanges or wearable collection cups and are supportive enough to hold them in place perfectly throughout your whole pumping session! Additionally, its gorgeous lace design allows you to comfortably pump while still feeling feminine and beautiful, a true necessity during postpartum!


The Amelia Cami & Tank Collection

If you are looking for the perfect pumping cami option for the BabyBuddha, look no further than the Amelia! The Amelia Cami & Tank collection comes in 3 amazing styles: the classic Amelia Pumping and Nursing Crop Cami, the Amelia Compression Tank and the Ribbed Amelia Crop Cami.  

All 3 styles include a functional, overlapped slit that allows you to lift up the top layer and easily slide the flange or wearable cups in. Then, for some added compression, you pull the top layer down to secure everything into place! This ensures that your flanges stay put throughout the entire pumping session and you don’t have to worry about anything slipping or having to hold the flanges while you pump! (It's a truly hands-free pumping experience.) The Amelia Collection is available in 16 different color options to add some fun to your breastfeeding wardrobe, and you can't go wrong with any of them!


Which Bra Is Your Pick?

Finding the right bra for the BabyBuddha (or any breast pump) can make such a difference in your overall pumping experience. In my personal opinion, you can’t go wrong with one of these three pumping bras! Each of these bras has unique features that make pumping so much easier for moms.
