Laura Loves…Lansinoh 2 in 1 Double Electric Breastpump

Lansinoh 2 in 1 Double Electric Breastpump

I’ve always been pro-breastfeeding.

I can’t help it, I had it drilled in to me that breast is best and following on from that I have done extended breastfeeding with my three children.

However, over the years and on my own journey I have also met with mothers that couldn’t or simply didn’t want to breastfeed and I am totally OK with that decision too.

I know I have been lucky, almost too lucky (extended breastfeeding wasn’t my actual plan but that’s another story!) so it’s not something I take for granted.

Having been sent this whizzy breast pump to review I was happy to give it a whirl.

I haven’t used breast pumps to a large extent, but think it’s fair to say I have gotten on OK with them over the years.

There are many benefits to breast pumps – whether it’s to increase milk flow or allow baby to have breast milk from a bottle, which in itself provides more freedom and flexibility for nursing mothers if they need a night off duty to get some sleep, to be away from home or a even a girls night out!

The pump I am reviewing is Lansinoh’s 2 in 1 Double Electric Breastpump.

Lansinoh are one of the few approved brands of nipple cream that you can use throughout breast-feeding, and have actually been my saviour to the sorest nipples throughout my nursing phase of three newborns.

As I mentioned earlier, I referred to it as ‘whizzy’ as on the box it comes across as an all singing and dancing pump that has the flexibility to pump from one or two breasts, and the added bonus of being electric so taking the effort away from mothers when it comes to the actual pumping.

Taking it out the box, I assumed it would be some big piece of kit, but it’s nothing more than your average pump.

It doesn’t look very intimidating and the pumps are a bit smaller than some others, which make it a little less scary.

Fitting it together takes a little bit of time.

There’s a fair few pieces and it reminds me of a LEGO structure in the need to follow the step-by-step instructions to ensure you don’t miss anything out.

Once you’ve done it once it’s simple stuff, but invest the time on the first go to get it right.

I didn’t realise but the pump can actually be used with or without being plugged in as it can take AA batteries making it handy for use on the go,

However, it does have a habit of draining your batteries so don’t be surprised if you’re spending a bit on replacing them regularly.

Ready to use and there’s a choice between two cushions pieces that vary in size. Test them both before committing to one.

Then when you’re ready to go there are a lot of settings.

This can be confusing and a little overwhelming at first, but importantly, it’s essential in being able to capture your most comfortable and the most efficient setting for you.

Once you are settled with a setting, you can change it up, whether that’s when you’re in a rush or just feeling more relaxed.

We are all different, and breastfeeding is even more complex, so having the range and variety of speed and depth of suction provides more control on an automated system, which I really like.

As an established feeder I don’t suffer with the same issues I did when first starting out.

My boobs have definitely toughened up so it’s hard to speak from that turbulent time.

However, in the here and now I think it’s a really comfortable pump – the cushion is soft and warm to the skin, and I have been able to find a couple of pumping motions that really work with my body and produce a good flow.

The pump itself is quite portable and you can easily take it around with you.

Likewise it’s easy to clean with all the main pieces suitable for sterilisation so it takes the hassle out of struggling to properly clean round those tricky to reach areas.

Overall it’s a fantastic breast pump that gives nursing mothers the flexibility to use it how they want to, and it’s a fair price in that it’s a valuable piece of baby kit to have but one that won’t break the bank.

The Lansinoh 2 in 1 Double Electric Breastpump is priced £129 from Boots. For more information on Lansinoh pumps and products, visit www.lansinoh.co.uk.
