Advantages of double pumping

Compared to single pumping, where one breast is pumped at a time, double pumping has a number of scientifically proven benefits:

  • You may get 18% more milk in a 15 minutes pumping session.
  • Your milk has a higher energy content, which is especially beneficial for preterm babies.
  • Last but not least, high energy content indicates increased breast drainage, thereby it is assisting in the maintenance of lactation. Double pumping is twice as fast as single pumping.
2-Phase Expression

2-Phase Expression technology

2-Phase Expression, which was first developed by Medela, mimics your baby’s natural sucking rhythm. Research shows that babies initially use short, fast sucks to stimulate the milk ejection reflex. Once the milk begins to flow, babies change to a slower, individual rhythm to actually feed. 2-Phase Expression uses a similar rhythm, so it stimulates quick milk ejection, makes pumping faster and makes the whole process feel more natural than ever.

Combining 2-Phase Expression with double pumping makes breast pumping quicker than ever before.

Make use of the amazing benefits of double pumping with Medela's 2-Phase Expression technology.
