The Swing pumps more milk in less time thanks to its 2-phase expression technology, the first research-based breastpump technology that mimics a baby's natural nursing rhythm.
This popular pump is for mothers who want to use a breastpump every day. It is perfect for a busy mother who works, plays sport, wants to go shopping or go out for an evening. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time pumping, the Swing electric breastpump is the ideal solution.
The Swing pump is easy to assemble and clean. You can switch between phases and set the most comfortable vacuum level. The battery option, combined with a belt clip, guarantees maximum mobility, and it can also be used with a mains adapter.
Medela's product development is based on evidence-based research into a baby’s natural feeding behaviour. This has led to the development of 2-phase expression technology which mimics the baby's natural sucking rhythm to express more milk in less time. The 2-phase expression technology consists of:
Phase One - Stimulation: a fast, light pumping rhythm to stimulate the milk ejection reflex and get the milk flowing
Phase Two - Expression: a slower pumping rhythm to express milk gently and efficiently
The benefits of this include:
> Up to 18% more milk is produced during double pumping compared to single
> Provides quality of milk with high energy content, beneficial for preterm infants
> High energy content indicates increased breast drainage which assists in the maintenance of lactation
> Increased levels of prolactin that can lead to increased milk production
> Twice as fast as single pumping to get the same amount of breastmilk
A size M PersonalFit Breastshield is included in all Medela personal use pumps. However, every woman is unique and one breastshield does not fit all. This is why Medela offers a range to allow mothers to choose exactly the right size. Figure A on the right shows a breastshield that is the correct size. The example in figure B is too small and the one in figure C is too large. In order to ensure maximum comfort and efficiency while expressing milk, mothers can choose between five PersonalFit Breastshield sizes: S (21mm), M (24mm), L (27mm), XL (30mm) and XXL (36mm).
The Medela family company, headquartered in the Canton of Zug, Switzerland, was founded by Olle Larsson in 1961. Medela concentrates on two business units: "Breastfeeding", with fundamental research that is recognised globally and leading in the development and manufacture of breastfeeding products, and "Healthcare", engineering and manufacturing highly innovative medical vacuum technology solutions. Medela has 18 subsidiaries in Europe, North America and Asia, distributes its products in over 90 countries, and employs 1,500 staff worldwide.
Like most Medela products, Calma is manufactured in Switzerland which is known for its high quality products, excellent working conditions and highly skilled workforce.
Health conscious mothers know it is important to buy BPA-free products for their babies. All Medela products that come into contact with breastmilk are proven to be safe for babies, made from polypropylene and BPA-free.
