Medela Swing Review

good

Milk production with this single powered breast pumpimpresses users, no doubt due to the stimulation phase and expression mode that mimic a baby's natural nursing rhythm. Users also say the breast shield is soft and comfortable and the parts are easy to disassemble and clean. The Medela Swing comes with a power cord, battery pack, carrying bag, and shoulder strap; different size breast shields are also available.

Users at Target.com really like the Medela Swing breast pump with one user saying it doesn't cause any breast tenderness or pain and it allows her to produce a lot of milk. At the Living in Sweet Dreams blog the Medela Swing reviewer says she loves this pump because it's easy to use, easy to clean and allows her to completely empty her breast in about 15 minutes.

As a single, powered breast pump, the Medela Swing comes with one size breast shield, but other sizes can be purchased if needed. It has a two phase expression technology which includes stimulation of 120 CPM speed and 50 to 140 mm Hg suction, and an expression mode of 45 to 72 CPM for speed and 50 to 250 mm Hg for suction. This is said to mimic a baby's natural nursing rhythm. It is powered by electricity or battery and comes with two, five ounce bottles with lids, travel caps, a carry bag, a bottle stand, a wide base slow flow nipple and a neck/shoulder strap.

We like that this inexpensive breast pump comes with so many extras and that it has the two phase expression technology. Reviewers also really like this pump saying it is comfortable, produces plenty of milk and is easy to clean. The bottom line is this cheap breast pump is a good option to try.
