This week only, there is a rare deal on the Spectra Breast Pumps at Target! Now through August 24th, save 20% on the Spectra S1 Plus Breast Pump or save 10% on the Spectra S2 Plus Breast Pump and the Spectra 9Plus Portable Breast Pump. These breast pumps don’t drop in price too often so grab one now if it’s on your list.


If you don’t know which model to get or which one is right for you, here’s the difference on the three Spectra models: The S1 Plus (blue), the S2 Plus (pink), and the 9Plus (mini).

Let’s start with what’s the same for all Spectra models. Functionality-wise, they are the same. With the Spectra S1, S2, and 9, you can control the suction strength and cycle speed independently. They are all double pumps (meaning you can pump both breasts at the same time), each has a “massage mode” to help with letdown and an “expression mode” for once your milk starts flowing. And all Spectra pumps have a closed system (vs. an open system), which means there is a barrier between the pump mechanism and the milk collection system.

So what about the differences between the Spectra models?

  1. Battery: The main difference is that the Spectra S1 Plus (blue) has a built-in rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 3 hours and the Spectra S2 Plus (pink) does not. The Spectra 9Plus (mini) also has a rechargeable battery for pumping on-the-go, but it doesn’t last as long as the S1 Plus (lasts only about 90 minutes).
  2. Size: The Spectra 9Plus has a slim and lightweight design, allowing for complete portability for moms on the go. The Spectra S1 and S2 are similar in size, but the S1 is slightly heavier than the S2 because of the rechargeable battery.
  3. Nightlight: The S1 and S2 include a night light in the handle if you’re inevitably pumping in the middle of the night and don’t want to disturb your baby. The 9+ does not have a nightlight.



You can shop the deal here now through August 24th.
