Medela Swing Breast Pump

Medela Swing Breast Pump

Medela Swing Breast PumpHaving the right breast pump is very important for a breast feeding mother, especially, if she plans on returning to work after her postpartum check up. I personally love Medela products and used the Medela Pump in Style. However, if you need a reliable breast pump and don’t plan on pumping several times a day I highly recommend this breast pump. The Medela Swing Breast Pump is a single electric pump that comes in a convenient carry bag.  It has a black drawstring bag that you can easily carry independently, in your purse, or briefcase.  It is compact and lightweight so that it is easy to carry around.  It weighs around 2 pounds.

Only Single Electric Breast Pump to Feature 2-Phase Expression Technology

This pump is designed to designed for the occasional pumping such as missed feeding, working part time, or to pump a bottle for a night out.  The Medela Swing is the only single electric breast pump that features the Two-Phase Expression Technology.  The Two-Phase Expression technology was designed to imitate the sucking motion that the baby produces on the breast.  When a baby first  latches on to the breast, he or she will suck on the breast rapidly to stimulate the milk flow.  The pump creates this motion using a faster pumping motion.  Then once the milk is flowing a baby will then slow its sucking motion to a slower, deeper sucking motion.  The pump will switch to a slower pumping motion.  The Swing has a “one touch” let down button that you can push to easily switch to the phase 1 expression technology(faster sucking motion).  The pump also has adjustable vacuum and speed to allow you to customize the breast pump to your desirable comfort level.

    I have heard very good things about this breast pump. I used an advent one {also good} and for some reason kept it around after my second was born. 8 years later, I’m glad I kept it as I ended up using it again!

      Yes, they have come a long way even since I purchased a cheap one with my daughter in ’96.

    I used a Medela pump – I just can’t recall which model. I love the container stand to prevent spilled milk. I spilled once – heartbreaking!

      Ouch, I accidentally spilled milk when I was transferring it from my pumped milk to the bottles that I fixed for my son each evening. I thought I put in a drop in liner and started pouring away. Then I noticed milk all over the counter and floor. Thankfully, even after a spill I had plenty of milk left for his bottles the next day.

    I still use the cooler and ice pack that my medela pack came with. So that’s one of the things that’s a bit of a bummer here. But really great, thorough review.

      That cooler is nice because it will hold a small amount of drinks and it isn’t too heavy to carry around. I still have mine as well but haven’t thought to use the cooler to carry my toddler’s drinks in when going to the park or pool.
