Not only is it the most-affordable electric breast pump from the Medela range, the Swing™ is also the smallest and lightest of all.
It is so compact and portable, you can bring it to anywhere by simply chucking it into your purse, or clip it to your belt, or even hang it off your shoulder to ensure on-the-go pumping, whenever required!
As with Medela breastpumps, the Swing is also equipped with the brand's innovative 2-Phase Expression Technology.
If you don't already know, this is a technology that mimics a baby’s natural sucking rhythm. There are actually two distinct phases when babies breastfeed:
1. Stimulation Phase
This is when babies first go to the breast where they suck faster to start the flow of milk.
2. Expression Phase
After milk flow, or “let-down” starts, babies breastfeed with a slower deep suck to remove milk.
The Swing mimics just that, and the result?
Mothers get more milk in lesser time - 18% more in fact, as proven through research.
The Swing includes all the accessories you need to get started.
This includes an AC adaptor, a bottle stand and two breastmilk bottles. Everything fits nicely in a small drawstring pouch (as seen from the picture left).
The pump itself weighs less than 1 lb (just 5” in diameter) so the Swing truly lives up to its expectation of portability. Note that it works on AA batteries as well, though they are not included in the kit.
Other accessories include a 24mm PersonalFit TM breastshiled, valve, 2 membranes, tubing and optional-use neck/shoulder strap.
It also comes with an Information Guide with instructions for use, though we reckon the following video will help you get the hang of it faster.
Like the Pump In Style Advanced model, the Swing is also an award-winning product.
It has won the Practical Parenting & Pregnancy Awards in the electronic breast pump category consecutively in 2012 and 2013, and before that, it was dubbed the Best Buy Breast Pumps in April 2011. Oh, did we mention it is BPA free also?
