Shortly after giving birth, I got sick in the hospital. I was absolutely devastated when I discovered that the medicine I had to take would prevent me from breastfeeding my daughter for two weeks. I still wanted to breastfeed in the future, so I began using the Lansinoh Affinity Double Electric Breast Pump.
The double pump allows you to pump both breasts at the same time in order to save time and maximize efficiency. You can also choose to pump one breast at a time.
It is not intimidating at all to use. The LCD screen makes it easy to set each phase and level. The Let-Down Phase, which lasts up to two minutes, prepares your breasts for the Expression Phase. You have complete control over how long you want each phase to last. You can choose to switch back and forth between the two phases if your milk is not coming in. The pump also allows you to control the suction level as well as the cycle level. These settings let you create an individualized program that is the most beneficial and comfortable for you.
This pump is so convenient. It is very lightweight and can fit into most diaper bags. The Affinity Breast Pump can run on either batteries or an AC adapter. It’s a great choice for mommies on the go!
The Affinity Breast Pump made an upsetting situation more bearable. Even after stopping my medication, I continued to use the pump. It allowed my husband to feed and bond with our daughter, which gave me some much needed sleep and time to recuperate.
