Simple Wishes X-Small/Large | Hands-Free Breast Pump Bra | Adjustable and Customizable Pumping Bra Fitting for Breastfeeding Pumps
About this deal
We love the relatively simple and portable design that’s easy to put together and start using immediately. (You might also find this particularly refreshing if you don’t like anything too techy). The handle is comfy and easy to use and shouldn’t leave your hand aching after a few pumps like some manual ones do.
Probably the most established brand for breastfeeding mothers, Medela’s iconic Swing design has remained unchanged since it was first launched in the 1960s. It’s a design classic that’s also brilliantly functional.Lansinoh, the makers of your favourite nipple cream, also produce superbly designed single and double electric breast pumps. Both versions are quiet, powerful, inexpensive and ergonomically designed to fit the female body. The breast shields come in two sizes to fit comfortably and have soft rubber padding around the edge, making the experience of pumping more pleasant on delicate bodies.
If you’re pumping to stimulate production or to combi-feed, electric breast pumps tend to be more efficient and a mains-powered breast pump will be fine if you’re mostly planning to use it at home. If you’ll be pumping at work, consider a battery-operated breast pump. Battery-operated breast pumps are another good choice for mums travelling away from home. A double breast pump will reduce the length of time you need to spend attached to your device to get the milk out. How does breast pumping compare to breastfeeding? Although you can hand express breastmilk, most mums who express often use a breast pump to collect the milk. It can help increase your milk supply too, and means your partner can share the feeding. Just bear in mind that it’s advised you don’t offer your newborn a bottle before they're six weeks old.Medela’s Swing Maxi Flex double pump is certainly at the higher end of the market in terms of price, but if you’re looking for quality, durability and classic design, it’s an excellent choice at a price to suit.
As well as evaluating ease of assembly and comfort in use, we take note of each pump’s suction power and efficiency at expressing milk, alongside with how easy it is to clean. Finally, you’ll find all of the key specifications you need to know, including the type of pump (double or single), whether it’s a closed or open system, and its weight.
Do I need a breast pump if I'm breastfeeding?
So, what’s new about it? Medela has created new Flex breast shields that help to express more milk and provide more comfort when pumping. As a result, it’s very easy to set up and use, and efficient at collecting milk.
