Manual or electrical

First you need to understand what type of mechanism is suitable for specific cases.

The principle of operation of all devices is the same: in the area of ​​the nipple and areola creates a vacuum that facilitates the separation of milk from the breast.

The main difference is the way to create a vacuum.

The manual mechanism operates on the force applied by the hands or feet( pressing the pedal).If you plan to use it infrequently( once or twice a week), the process will not take much time. If you have large breasts or you need to decant daily, this type of apparatus will not work.

In the latter case, it is necessary to stop the choice of the mechanism, which is driven by an electric motor. Among such breast pumps there is its own gradation: they are with analog and digital control. The first work in one rhythm, the latter are able to change the speed, imitating breast sucking( for this they are called two-phase).Certainly, comfort and efficiency are higher in the newest developed models, but one should not think that simple and inexpensive options are not worth attention: it all depends on the frequency of straining and your individual characteristics.

How to choose

Stop the choice on an electric breast pump if there is a need to quickly drain the milk into a bottle.

Manual adjustment requires more time and effort, so it is convenient only if you are sitting at home with your child.

When buying a machine, you should pay attention to all the components of the kit: how many containers are included, what additional details the manufacturer offers.

Do not ignore the warranty card: the availability and warranty lines should be specified in the store.

An important point is also the convenience in washing and sterilizing the device, the details of which are specified in the instructions.

Natalia, 28, Irkutsk:

"I was advised in the maternity manual AVENT Philips. I did not need to express milk very often, so I was satisfied with the purchase. Indeed, it is much easier than using the grandfather method manually. True, anyone who has serious problems with decanting is probably better off buying electric: I would not use it every day. "

Catherine, 23, Klin:

"I would advise the electric. My mother-in-law gave Freestyle, having saved from unreal torments: the milk began to arrive, the breast did not hurt. I myself would not allow myself such pleasure, I was going to buy a manual one. If you assume that you'll use one or two times, buy something cheaper, and if there are problems, Freestyle recommend.
