If you’re going to be spending occasional time away from your baby — whether you’re on the road or at work — the Harmony® Breast Pump with PersonalFit Flex™ from Medela is a great backup to your double electric breast pump. This single, manual breast pump is lightweight, easy to use, and portable. It’s small enough to fit into a handbag and doesn’t require any batteries or wires.
The Harmony® Breast Pump is equipped with a PersonalFit Flex breast shield with a 105° opening angle, which means more milk faster when compared to the traditional 90° breast shield. These shields are designed to reduce pressure on the breast and optimize milk flow. As the No. 1 mom and doctor recommended breast pump brand, Medela’s breast milk feeding products all are developed from extensive research.
Using this manual pump on the go is easy. You’ll simply position the shield on your breast and begin stimulating milk flow with fast strokes via the shorter handle. Once milk starts flowing, you’ll then switch to the longer handle and slower strokes to extract the milk. The uniquely designed handle helps to mimic your baby’s natural suckling rhythm, and it is ergonomic and intuitive for mom to use. Since the pump is quiet, you can use it anywhere discreetly.
When you’re done pumping, detach the bottle from the pump and use the included lid for easy storage. The pump also comes with a bottle stand to prevent spills. All parts that come into contact with breast milk are made without BPA, so you know they’re safe for you and baby.
With the great price point, you won’t have to worry about spending too much on an additional pump. The Harmony® Breast Pump is a great addition to your pumping regimen and will make traveling much easier.
