The Classic™ Breastpump
This pump remains Corky's and Wendy's favorite pump. Although heavy (22 lbs.) the smooth pumping action allows many mothers to maximize their milk supply. Based on over 25 years of experience in assisting thousands of mothers with pumping, we highly recommend this pump to mothers with any of the following: premature infant in the NICU, low milk supply, breast reduction surgery, unrelieved engorgement and plugged ducts. The mother can easily change from single pumping to double.
The Classic Pump requires Medela's Universal Breastpump Accessory Kit. Sold separately.
The Symphony® Breastpump
Symphony is Medela's latest innovation in hospital-grade electric double pumps. This pump has the added advantage of mimicking the sucking pattern of the baby. The pump action begins with a fast, light pattern to enhance let-down, and then switches to a slower and stronger expression phase. The mother can easily change from single pumping to double. We recommend this pump to Mothers who are looking for a lightweight and compact alternative to the Classic Breastpump.
Use of this pump requires Medela's Symphony pumping kit. Sold separately.
The Lactina® BreastpumpThis pump is classified as a hospital grade pump. Lightweight and compact, this is a perfect choice for a mother returning to the workplace who does not wish to invest in a personal use pump (Pump in Style®). The mother can choose to pump singly or both breasts simultaneously.
Use of this pump requires Medela's Universal Breastpump Accessory Kit. Sold separately.
The BabyChecker™ Scale
This scale is perfect for new parents of preterm infants just discharged from the NICU. Many mothers are anxious that their tiny infant may not be getting enough milk at the breast and are more likely to supplement with a bottle. Research has shown that if mothers are able to weigh their infant each day, they gain the confidence to continue to breastfeed without supplementation. This baby scale is lightweight, portable, operates on batteries and has an easy-to-read LCD display.
Please note that this scale is not suitable for determining how much the infant had to eat at a particular feeding.
