Elvie – The world’s first silent, wearable breast pump (elvie.com)

Can you use it while asleep? There is one breastpump out there that claim it can be worn like a bra and you can pump while sleeping (so, laying on bed). That gives a much bigger advantage.

Also, what's the quality of the pumping? Is it hospital grade?

Price range?

This strikes me as one of those "Ah-hah" projects, why didn't someone do this sooner. Breast pumps were ripe for disruption. One thing I don't see is how cleanable it is/whats the cleaning process. IMHO, that's one of the biggest headaches for today's breast pumps.

All of the parts are very easy to clean. We’ve been trialling with dozens of breastfeeding moms and I don’t believe this has come up as a concern.

We've removed “Show HN” from the title because the product isn't ready for users to try out yet.


Thanks. Sorry about that
