Highly efficient and time-saving
The Swing Breastpump is a solution for active mothers who need to pump regularly and to increase milk supply. Swing maxi has a more powerful motor than the single electric Swing breastpump allowing a mother to pump 18% more milk in half the time with the combination of simultaneous expression and 2-Phase Expression technology.
Comfortable and convenient
Swing maxi offers 9 fully adjustable vacuum levels for a comfortable pumping session. It is lightweight and compact with both - electric and battery power - guaranteeing comfort, freedom and flexibility.
Mother friendly operation
Swing Maxi can be used for single and double pumping without a loss of performance. You can also switch between phases and set your preferred vacuum level by pushing one button. Battery option and quiet operation enable discreet pumping whilst on the go.
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).
