What are the Benefits of Medela Breast Pumps?

As one of the top breast pump manufacturers, Medela offers breast pumps of the utmost quality and dependability. With each pump, Medela provides various advantages that enhance the breast pumping journey. Below is an outline of some of the key benefits offered by Medela breast pumps:

Medela is one of the most esteemed breast pump brands, gaining notoriety among moms for over 20 years. Known to be one of the most trusted, reliable providers on the market, Medela offers extensive warranties to ensure moms have a smooth breastfeeding journey from start to finish.

Medela is known for its original 2-phase Expression technology, which imitates how an infant naturally feeds. In the stimulation phase, Medela breast pumps imitate a baby’s sucking patterns to stimulate letdown. Then, the pump enters the Expression phase, which uses deeper, slower suction to express milk more quickly and generate optimal milk supply.

As a brand, Medela prioritizes comfort and flexibility with each breast pump model. Each pump comes with optional battery power, a selection of carrying options, and a range of prices to fit every mom’s lifestyle and budget.

Is Medela a Hospital-Grade Pump?

Many Medela breast pumps offered at Pumps for Mom offer hospital-grade performance, including personal-use pumps! The Medela Sonata is an excellent example of a daily-use, double-electric personal pump with peak performance and consistent pumping. The same goes for the Medela Freestyle Flex and the Medela Pump in Style.

How do Medela Breast Pumps Compare to Spectra Breast Pumps?

Medela and Spectra are both renowned breast pump brands. While not one is necessarily better than the other, some moms might have a favorite, depending on their lifestyle. Generally, Spectra breast pumps are a bit heavier than Medela pumps, meaning they aren’t as easy to take with you on the go. However, this extra weight accounts for Spectra’s powerful motors, indicating a stronger suction strength. So, if you live an active lifestyle and are leaning towards a portable breast pump, Medela might be your best fit!

How Do I Properly Clean my Medela Breast Pump?

It’s essential to clean your Medela breast pump after each use. In doing so, you’ll want to clean each of your pump’s individual parts, including bottles, valves, and breast shields and then ensure they’re correctly dried for your next pumping session. We recommend following the steps below to maintain optimal cleanliness and hygiene.

  • Begin by rinsing your pumping equipment with drinking-quality water, approximately 20°C/68°F, to eliminate any milk protein remnants.
  • Next, wash all components with warm water, approximately 30°C/86°F, and dishwashing liquid.
  • Re-rinse the pumping components with drinking-quality water for 15 to 20 seconds.
  • Dry the equipment using a clean cloth or air-dry on a fresh towel.
  • Remember to consult your breast pump instruction manual for specific cleaning instructions.

Can I get a Medela Breast Pump Free through Insurance?

Absolutely, you can! Under the Affordable Care Act, most insurance plans are legally required to cover pregnancy and postpartum goods and services, including breast pumps!
