When you take these factors into consideration you will be able to narrow down the best breastpump for your lifestyle.
Most moms choose double electric breastpumps over manual breastpumps due to their convenience, ease of use, and efficiency. All of your big name breastpump manufacturers such as Medela and Ameda offer double electric breastpumps so let’s take a look at what sets them apart from one another.
Medela and Ameda…choosing the best breastpump
Medela and Ameda both offer double electric breastpumps, however each brand has it’s own unique feature that sets their breastpumps apart from others.
Medela breastpumps are known for their 2-Phase Expression technology which is a unique pumping pattern that mimics what a breastfeeding baby knows how to do instinctively, maximizing milk output in less time. Studies have shown that babies nurse in 2 different phases:
- Fast and light sucking to start the milk flowing.
- When milk starts flowing the baby switches to slower, deeper sucks to get milk as quickly as possible.
Medela’s 2-Phase Expression technology mimics these separate phases and moms all over rave over Medela breastpump efficiency and output.
Ameda breastpumps are known for their closed kit technology. There are two big advantages for using a closed system:
- When using a closed system the barrier between the collection kit and the pump tubing prevents outside air from being exposed to your breastmilk.
- This barrier also ensures that milk particles will not enter the pump tubing or motor.
Closed systems preserve the purity of your breast milk and prevent the possibility of mold growing in your tubing which is a feature many moms rave over.
