A More Subtle Breast Pump

Elvie Breast Pump
Elvie Breast Pump Joe Lingeman for TIME 

Two years ago, a ­portable, wearable breast pump appeared on TIME’s Best Inventions list as an alternative to heavy, noisy pumping machines. Since then, more have come to market, including Elvie, which has emerged as a leader in the field. Elvie has no tubes or wires, and uses a nearly silent motor. It is lighter, slimmer and quieter than competitors, allowing moms to discreetly pump while performing daily activities. A set costs $499, or moms can opt for one pump for $279. —Emily Barone
