From the manufacturer
Medela Swing Electric Breastpump
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.
Designed for every-day use
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.
Comfortable and easy to handle
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.
- Express milk efficiently and discreetly - the Swing Breastpump combines a multi-award-winning design with the well-designed technology. The popular electric breastpump represents the ideal solution for regular and discreet breast pumping
2-Phase Expression Technology
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
Choosing the Right Breastshield Size for You
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.
Made in Switzerland
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.

I did use a manual breast pump with my first daughter many years ago and found that I got myself into a sticky, irritated mess! It was beacuse of this I was in two minds whether to buy a pump at all, never mind spend the best part of £100 to purchase one.
Having read professional reviews, I took a leap of faith and bought this model. I must say that while it may be considered a little expensive and it is a little tricky to operate one handed (while feeding my baby with the other breast,) I expressed some three ounces of milk in around 20 minutes.
I was then able to take my baby out shopping for some essentials without having to give her formula milk or listen to her scream the shop down before we returned home.
The pump is easy to assemble, clean and operate and will be a huge benefit when I return to work in the future.
Simply, I wish I'd have bought one earlier!
1. Fully adjustable suction strength so the suction can be as gentle or as strong as you need.
2. Has the most powerful suction of all of the electric pumps that I've tried so am able to express more milk more quickly.
3. Breast guard fits well and is comfortable.
4. Easy to assemble, clean and maintain (save for the suction pipe; see below).
1. According to the instructions the suction pipe cannot be sterilised in the microwave however, it isn't too difficult to clean; it's just a minor irritation. However the other parts can be sterilised easily.
2. My baby doesn't like the Calma teat that is provided, so I pump into the bottle provided and then transfer into baby's MAM bottle.
3. As with most pumps, you have to sit upright/slightly forward when expressing milk. However given the suction power, this isn't too much of an issue as it allows me to express more milk more quickly than the other electric pumps that I've tried, so it's a bit of a trade-off.
The other pumps that I tried and did not like were:
1. Philips AVENT SCF332/01 Comfort Single electric breast pump - RRP £115.00 so not much cheaper than the swing. A nicely designed pump with the benefit of being able to sit back in a reclined position when expressing.Read more ›
