This is an age of up-and-about moms. We are balancing a blossoming career while experiencing the unparalleled joys of motherhood. While we are all for latching and breastfeeding newborns, it is only practical to have a reliable alternative for support. This is even more pertinent now. Many new moms in our team are struggling because of the lack of family support due to the travel restrictions in place amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Managing postpartum care while taking care of a newborn can be challenging, especially for first-time moms. Sleep deprivation can cause long-term problems. For a partner to be able to support during night time feeds alternatives are required. This is where the work of an efficient and comfortable breast pump comes in. A good breast pump can free you from continuous breastfeeding and give you more time to truly enjoy being with your child, as well as maintain the precious work-life balance.
Now pumping may sound a little scary at first, but with Philips Avent Comfort Single Electric Breast Pump, it is almost like taking a walk in the park.
Understanding that baby’s natural suckling action is key to milk production, the Philips Avent Breast Pump features unique Natural Motion Technology, which mimics this gentle massaging movement to initiate milk let down for a quicker milk flow without having to use over powerful suction that can often hurt moms’ nipples. Additionally, the intuitive memory function and automatic transition from simulation to expression enables hassle-free use for moms.
At The Vent Machine, we swear by the new Philips Avent Electric Breast Pump. Here’s why:
Philips Avent Comfort Single Electric Breast Pump
Easy to carry and easy to use Philips Breast Pump comes with simple settings and a breast shield or a massage pump for comfortable, uncomplicated pumping. The pump itself comes with a cover that keeps the fine dust, pet hair, or lint off the shields.
Easy to assemble
You do not have to struggle a lot with this pump as it comes pre-assembled. The only thing you have to attach are the tubes. However, it is strongly recommended that you take the pump apart and sterilize each and every piece before actually using it.
You get an instruction manual with the pump that smoothly guides you through the short process of putting the pump back together. It is pretty easy to dismantle and put back together.
Comfort on point
Almost every mom that has tried this pump compliments it for its level of comfort and we couldn’t agree more. It allows you to sit upright, unlike others where you have to awkwardly lean forward to pump out the milk without spilling.
The breast shield or ‘breast cushion,’ as it is commonly referred to, is extremely soft and flexible. The size of the breast shield is 25-mm which sits well with almost every woman. But just in case you are looking for a size smaller, there is a 19.5-mm shield that is also available.
Pump it up
Using Philips Avent Comfort Single Electric Breast Pump is a fairly straightforward process. It has 5 buttons, one for power, one for simulation mode, and three for expression settings.
The Power turns the pump on and off. The simulation mode mimics the stronger suckling of a baby to get the milk flowing. Once the milk starts to flow you can select from one of the three expression settings which will determine the suction strength.
The breast shield forms an airtight seal between the breast and itself which prevents the milk from leaking. The bottles get easily detached too without spilling any of the content inside.
The pump is designed to be travel-friendly. It is lightweight and compact, it is easy to use at home as well as anywhere away from home. You can both the options, you can either use a power adaptor for it or AA batteries in case there is no power outlet within reach.
Easy to clean
This pump is super easy to use, clean, and sterilize afterward. You can clean it by hand or in the dishwasher. However, while putting it into the dishwasher, please refer to the instruction manual to see which parts of the pump can be put in the dishwasher.
For all the new as well as expecting moms out there, don’t let the thought of non-stop breastfeeding overwhelm you. With Philips Avent Comfort Single Electric Breast Pump, you can provide your child the best quality of nutrition in the world with just a few pumps.
