The NEW Medela Pump In Style with MaxFlow Breast Pump is a must have for all Moms!
When getting ready for baby, one of the must have items is a quality breast pump! Even if you plan to exclusively breast feed, it is good to pump in between feedings for a variety of reasons.
Not all pumps on the shelves at your local store or those online have the same features, though. When you’re picking a breast pump, you need to look at all of the features and see what fits your lifestyle best.
What to Look for In a Breast Pump
There are so many breast pumps to pick from and it can certainly be overwhelming when you’re searching online or in store. When searching for a breast pump, here’s what you should be looking for:
Does it Fit your Lifestyle?
Do you need a pump that is portable? What about one that offers single pump or double pump? You know your lifestyle best, so be sure to check out the features of the pump before you purchase.
The performance of the pump is vital, too! The Medela Pump in Style with MaxFlow Technology has an innovative vacuum mechanism that combines Medela’s research-based 2-Phase Expression® technology with a NEW MaxFlow technology. This pairing generates a vacuum with micro-vibrations to increase and optimize milk flow.
A clinical pilot study compared MaxFlow technology with standard breast pump technology, revealing that MaxFlow removes higher percentage of available milk faster than other breast pumps.
Is the Technology Up to Date?
The pump should have the most up to date technology and should be easy to use! You want a closed system, for sure!! The Medela Pump In Style with MaxFlow offers a closed system that prevents milk from entering the Y-tubing and pump motor.
This provides confidence in hygiene and quality of expressed milk. Plus, the new tube design eliminates tangling issues and simplifies the connection for double or single pumping.
Is the Pump Comfortable?
Breastfeeding or pumping should not be painful. Does the pump you’re looking at have good comfort ratings and reviews from other Moms?
The Medela Pump In Style comes with two sizes of PersonalFit Flex™ breast shields with soft rim and oval shape for better fit and effective, yet comfortable pumping.
The flex shields are another award-winning innovation added to this pump designed to help mom extract 11.8 percent more milk faster.
Is the Pump Portable and Easy to Use?
Are you always on the go? Whether you work full time outside of the home or you are chasing other kids around, as a Mom you need something that is going to be easy to use!
The Medela Pump In Style with MaxFlow is portable weighing a little over 1lb. with intuitive controls allow for simple pump operation and easy experience finding Maximum Comfort Vacuum®level.
This pump system has fewer parts and large openings, so it is also easier to clean compared to the previous version. Plus, the set comes with all you need for on the go use!
