Elechomes has released a variety of baby products, amongst all, its Double Electric Breast Pumps is one that has received overwhelmingly positive response from the public shortly upon its launch.
It is not hard to see why.
Main Functions in Detail
For firsts, this intuitive electric breast pump has up to 5 suction intensity levels for breastfeeding moms to choose from at the 'stimulation phase', followed by a 9-suction level selection at the 'expression phase' for you to adjust to your best comfort.
Yes, like Medela, the Elechomes Double Electric Breast Pumps also has a 2-phase system implemented whereby it imitates the 2 natural phases of a baby's slow and deep sucking motions for the best milk secretion.
The first phase is what's called "Stimulation" - the pump will massage the mammary gland to promote better milk flow.
After which, the second "Expression" phase begins and milk will flow slowly but steadily out.
By simulating the sucking patterns of babies, the pump stimulates the breast in order to get the most milk for the least amount of pain and discomfort. It is able to express the same amount of breast milk as many other well-known brands that is double/triple of its price.
Also, it employs a silicone breast shield which is more comfortable on the skin as it is softer and does not cause fraction, and it is in the 24mm size - the ideal size that fits the breast perfectly.
Single/Double Pumping System
Nevertheless, what we really like about the Elechomes is that it is both a single AND double pumping system.
You see, most (if not all) breast pumps are labelled either a single or double pump and you'll need to stick to it upon deciding on which type you go for. But with this one here, you get to choose according to your needs or preference on the day.
Instead of pumping on both sides simultaneously, Elechomes' pump has an alternate, bilateral sucking design.
What this means is that you get to rest one nipple at a time to alleviate pain and discomfort, as well as avoid painful overuse.
Not only does this benefit mom's health (reduce discomfort level), it also boosts and improves sucking efficiency to up to 50%. On days when you need to, it can also be used as a single pump for your special needs.
Memory & Timer Functions
Speaking of which, the Elechomes breast pump is equipped with memory and timer functions.
The unit will remember your last settings so you can pick up where you left off last time instead of having to reset the settings every time. The timer on the other hand, will let you know how long you’ve been pumping for.
On top of that, the auto-stop function will automatically cease operation after 30 minutes to prevent over-pumping and breast injury. You can select all these settings easily on the touchscreen with just one finger.
Another aspect that users like about the Elechomes breast pump is its hygienic factor.
It employs a closed system that prevents contamination and backflow/reentry of fluids into the main unit or tubing so that it can maintain maximum hygiene so users can feel 100% reassured.
Last but not least, this electric breast pump has a built-in 2000mAh battery so it is highly portable. You can bring it anywhere and pump on the go as one single charge can last through 4 whole pump cycles.
This is why the Elechomes is especially a favourite among working moms who need to travel frequently or are on shift work because it makes life extremely convenient (comes with a USB charging cord as well).
Pros & Cons
Now that you have read the above, you should be able to understand why the Elechomes Double Electric Breast Pumps is so highly raved and well-loved by moms across the world.
Its 2-phase pumping efficiency is comparable to that of Medela's (but without the latter's price point) and the various suction intensity levels is able to cater to different pumping needs.
On top of that, the flexibility to switch between single or double pumping modes makes it truly an attractive one. We have no qualms giving it a 5-star rating.
