Types of Nursing Pumps
There are several different types of nursing pumps available. For example, the Medela Symphony uses 2-Phase Expression technology. The difference between the two types is the way the pump functions. The Medela Symphony lets you control the speed and the vacuum together with its dial. Using the let-down button, you can switch from one phase to the other. The Spectra S3 allows you to adjust the speed and the vacuum separately.
The breast pump has three main parts: the suction source, the milk container, and the milk bottle. Each one has a different suction cycle and suction level, and they take some practice to use. If you are new to nursing, it is recommended to start out by buying a nursing pump that has a single-user suction source. You can also buy accessories to make the process easier. A single-user pump has a cleanable diaphragm and can be sterilized after every use.
If you are breastfeeding, you may need a nursing pump on the same day. You can rent a hospital grade pump from a local organization or hospital. A double electric personal use pump can be used for a long time, and is recommended by a lactation consultant. These pumps are hospital-grade and can be used on a daily basis. This pump will help you feel more confident and comfortable while breastfeeding your baby. You can also get a discount by using your Texas Tech ID while renting a nursing pump.
The Medela nursing pump is a simple and convenient option. Its Bluetooth capability and rechargeable battery make it a popular choice for new mothers. The device can be connected to a computer and synced with the Medela app. It is also easy to use, with four buttons for controlling the suction and a backlit digital display that shows you the amount of milk in the jar. The Medela pump is compatible with most nursing bras and has a timer to prevent accidental milk spills.
Depending on your situation, you can choose to purchase a hospital-grade pump for the first few weeks of nursing. A personal use pump is a great option for a nursing mom and can be used throughout the entire breastfeeding process. You can also rent a hospital-grade pump from a local organization or hospital. A lactation consultant will help you decide which type of pump is right for you. If you are not yet ready to purchase a nursing-grade pump, consider renting a hospital-grade unit instead.
A nursing pump is usually made of plastic and comes with an attached breast shield. The breast shield fits over the areola and nipple and holds the pump and the milk container. A nursing pump can also be attached to the nipple. A single-use model can be a good option for new mothers. The Medela pumps are very easy to use and can be used by both the mother and the baby.
