If only the Medela Swing Maxi had been invented when I was still breast-feeding! It’s totally brilliant, super quick, easy and light to use and expresses so much milk – everything you need in a brilliant breast pump.
I used a breast pump for both babies, actually it was a an electric double Medela breast pump that I hired from the chemist, it did an amazing job, but it certainly wasn’t something I could pop in my bag, suitcase was more like it!
I cannot recommend Medela breast pumps enough, the double breast pump got me through two severe cases of cracked nipples and helped me keep my supply up. The new Medela Maxi Swing is the latest modern double pump edition that can be taken anywhere making life easier for breast-feeding mummies.
The Medela Maxi Swing breast pump is so quick and time saving, you pump a great deal of milk in half the time that you would with most other pumps. It’s super comfortable with different sized nipple shields so you get a perfect fit, which leads to perfect expressing and healthy nipples!
I love that it is so compact, small and light, I never thought I would see the day that a double breast pump could be so tiny, literally fits in your handbag!
Don’t think that by being so small and compact that Medela has compromised on any features, it still has a great range of vacuum levels and settings and of course the Medela 2-Phase Expression Technology (based on the natural sucking rhythm of the baby, short, stimulating patterns are followed by longer ones, ensuring optimal milk flow & faster let-down) that pumps breast milk quickly and efficiently.
The Medela Maxi Swing is really easy to put together, super simple and best of all easy to clean. You can use it with batteries or plug it in – love it.
Medela Maxi Swing helps you make sure you always enough breast milk for your baby whilst helping to increase and sustain your milk supply. Double pumping will drain the breast more and this will increase the milk supply, you will get up to 18% more milk compared to single pumping in a pumping session. Medela has also proved that double pumping provides milk with higher energy content. The Medela Swing Maxi can be used for single and double pumping without a loss of performance. You can also switch between phases and set your preferred vacuum level by pushing one simple button.
