If you need to express breast milk for when you are away from your baby, and you need to purchase a breast pump, then this post is for you.
I have compiled a list of shops – both online and physical – where you can purchase breast pumps.
So here is the list of some shops where you can buy breast pump in the Philippines:
1. Department Stores/Drug Stores/Malls – I would not generally encourage serious pumping mommas to purchase their breast pump from malls/drugstores/department stores as most of the pumps available there are not really for long-term use. By serious pumping mommas I mean those that are away from the baby from 8-10 hours at a time and would need to pump milk. I pumped milk for more than a year, and the electric one that I bought for Php5,000.00 at that time did not do its job well. Really sorry to say but these are just good for engorgement, or occasional pumping but not for totally emptying your breast, much less provide milk for your child and maintain your supply while you are away from your little one. You are better off learning hand-expression techniques from breastfeeding experts actually. The EXCEPTION to this is if you found trusted Breast Pump Name Brands like Ameda, Medela, and Lansinoh in your department store shelves. Now those brands you can buy and rely on. If I am not mistaken, you can check in Rustan’s.

3. BabymamaPH – If you are looking for great quality and not so expensive pumps that work well, then Babymama is the legitimate online shop where you can purchase breast pumps. If you are an office mom who would like to pump breastmilk for your little one while you are away, but you cannot afford the US brands, then those that are retailed by Babymama, are your best bet. Believe me because I purchased one from them many, many years ago and it helped me exclusively breastfeed my eldest even while I was away at work. It maintained my supply too, that I was able to nurse Achi until she was 4 ½ years old. More importantly, Mi’ann, the mommy behind BabyMamaPH, is very, very helpful. One time something went wrong with my pump, and she helped me ASAP by sending a courier to pick up the unit from my office, and loaning me a pump while my own is being repaired. If you will be needing parts, they have some on hand too, and can deliver it in an instant. So that is one exceptional customer service for you! They also carry hospital-grade pumps, AMEDA Breast pumps, and other breastfeeding accessories. Check out their website here.
4. Lazada – If you are looking to buy a back-up breast pump (hello power outages!) or some manual pumps for engorgement or occasional use, then beat the heavy traffic crisis and just shop over at Lazada. In fact they even have the Medela Manual Pump — buy it here. Here is also another Manual Pump — Avent — which you may want to check out here. This First Years Mi Pump is a single electric pump that you can use as a back-up for your full time pump. My mom sent me one like this before and it is OK to use as a back-up pump — plus we used breastflow bottles then. Here is a link to the site.
5. BabyOutletPH – They also carry breast pumps, usually the ones that you also see in department stores. Check out their website here.
6. BaoBao Babies – This Facebook Shop sells Unimom and Spectra breastpumps, that as I have mentioned, are a good alternative to the more expensive breast pumps. Check out their FB Page here.
7. Liquid Gold PH — They carry Unimom’s Manual and Electric Breast Pumps. Go to their FB Store here.
8. UPDATED September 03, 2016: Cudsly.com: Sells various breast pumps like single electric, manual, and even double electric pumps in brands such as First Years, Tommee Tippee, Horigen, Fisher Price, Playtex, and various models of Unimom. Check out their shopping website here.
9. 8. UPDATED September 03, 2016: Shopee.ph: Check out this new online shopping and selling platform that gives discounts as ell as free shipping promos! As of last check there is a Medela Pump, Philips Avent Pumps, as well as other pump brands being sold by the sellers there. Download their mobile app or shop from their website here.
I am sure there are other shops where you can purchase breast pumps. I promise to update this post, as I discover more. I purposely did not include reselling sites like OLX because most of the breast pumps being sold there are second hand, and I know for a fact that it is not advisable to buy used breast pumps because the pumps that they sell have an open-system, therefore not for sharing or reuse by another mom even if you change the horns, tubing or what not.
Again, for the online stores, I included their links so that you could personally check on their current pricing and product availability.
If you are looking for a good book that can guide you through your pumping career, I recommend “The Breastfeeding Mother’s Guide to Making More Milk: Foreword by Martha Sears, RN,“ which you may buy here. For a little less than Php600.00 you will have this ebook to read on your mobile device on your own convenience.
