Medela Swing Electric Breastpump with Calma
Express milk quietly and discreetly: the Swing Electric Breastpump combines a multi-award-winning design with the latest technology. The electric breastpump is very quiet and therefore represents the ideal solution for regular and discreet breast pumping.
Swing is the multi-award-winning electric breastpump for mothers who need a breastpump for everyday use. Whether you work part time, want to have an evening out, play sports or just want to go shopping, the Swing electric breastpump is the ideal solution for mothers who don't want to spend too much time for pumping.
There are various issues which can make breastfeeding directly on the breast difficult, such as latch-on problems, breast infections or sore nipples. The electric breastpump Swing is also suited to such problems as it helps you still provide your baby with breastmilk at this difficult time. You have time to heal and enjoy the benefits of a short break from breastfeeding.
Calma is the ideal alternative to breastfeeding for mothers who want to give their babies breastmilk
With Calma, babies do not have to change their natural feeding behaviour. Whether you breastfeed or use Calma--the milk only flows when the baby applies vacuum. Breastfeeding is always best for your baby, but sometimes it is not possible to breastfeed naturally. Calma provides a solution to this.
- Enables babies to maintain their natural feeding behaviour learned on the breast
- Babies can drink, breathe and pause regularly
- Supports an easy transition from the breast to the teat and back
- One size is sufficient for the entire breastfeeding period, just as in nature
- The unique feeding solution for your baby--it is recommended that you introduce a teat when breastfeeding is established
Invented by Medela--2-Phase Expression Technology
Medela has invented 2-Phase Expression which is the only research--based breast pump technology that mimics a baby’s natural nursing rhythm. Similar to a nursing baby, 2-Phase breastpumps mimic a baby's natural sucking behaviour.
First, a fast pumping rhythm to stimulate the milk ejection reflex and to start the milk flowing. This phase is named stimulation. Then, a slower pumping rhythm to express milk gently and efficiently. This phase is named expression.
Through intensive and pioneering work, Medela has converted the baby's intuitive knowledge into technological know-how. The result is 2-Phase Expression - the new standard for unsurpassed naturalness, comfort and efficiency in breastpumps. Phase 1 Stimulation Phase--just like a baby who initially suckles rapidly; stimulates the let-down reflex Phase 2 Expression Phase--pump automatically moves to a slower speed as the milk begins to flow
Choose the right breastshield for you
Every mother needs her individual breastshield size. This is important to have an efficient pumping session without pain and to completely empty the breast in a shorter period of time. Therefore Medela offers 5 different sizes of its PersonalFit breastshields. You can read more about selecting the right size for you here.
All Medela products that come into direct contact with breastmilk are, and always have been, made from BPA-free plastic. Breastmilk is best for the baby and the baby's natural sucking rhythm is best for the mother. In intensive pioneer work, Medela has converted the baby's intuitive knowledge into technological know-how.
