A Little Bit About Medela
Founded in 1961 in Zug, Switzerland by Olle Larsson, Medela continues to grow under the ownership of the Larsson family today. Medela serves its customers through 13 subsidiaries distributing to over 90 countries worldwide. Medela’s U.S. subsidiary, Medela, Inc., has been serving the American market for over 25 years.
Medela’s commitment to quality products and supportive programs has made the company the industry leader and the primary supplier of breastpumps to healthcare facilities in the United States.
Medela is the first manufacturer in the United States to develop a workplace program to meet the needs of working mothers. Through the Corporate Lactation Program, businesses support breastfeeding employees and their families by providing breastfeeding counseling and breastpumps in an accessible, private, pleasant location. This program has been instrumental in making American businesses more "nursing-mother-friendly" with programs in major corporate firms.
Medela offers a variety of breastpumps to meet every mom’s needs. In addition, Medela also offers a wide range of breastfeeding accessories that support and enhance the breastfeeding experience:
The Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump &Shoulder Bag
Pump In Style Advanced is a daily use breastpump designed for moms who pump several times a day. All Pump In Style Advanced breast pumps offer portable convenience for quiet, discreet pumping anywhere (*all parts that touch breastmilk are BPA Free).
What is 2-Phase Expression® technology?Through research, Medela learned that there are two distinct phases of how babies breastfeed. The Stimulation Phase is fast and light sucking to start milk flowing followed by the Expression Phase, slow and stronger sucking to deliver more milk faster. Pump In Style Advanced breast pumps have exclusive 2-Phase Expression technology that mimics a baby's natural nursing pattern.
With both of my children I chose to breastfeed. It was the best choice for me, and while I was able to breastfeed the princess for a full year, I was not able to breastfeed B quit as long (though with more encouragement, support, and the right breastpump I feel thing's may have worked out differently).
Now with many woman returning to work after their little one's are born, the option to breast feed can be difficult. However, it can be made easier, and more convenient with the Medela Pump In Style® Advanced Shoulder Bag The double pump is concealed in a stylish shoulder bag, that can easily go anywhere with you. Medela's pumps are top notch, I had tried several pumps with the princess and was unsatisfied for varying reason's....when I found the Medela Swing Pump, I was more than satisfied with the quality! It was my companion in breastfeeding the princess, and looking back was a contributing factor in my breastfeeding success the second time around (as opposed to my experience with B).
The Pump in Style Advanced is concealed in the stylish microfiber shoulder bag and comes with everything you need for pumping success. It's spacious enough to store the included removable PVC-free cooler bag with ice pack (keeps milk cool for up to 12 hours), the double pumping kit with PersonalFit breastshields, and the 4 BPA free breastmilk bottles with lids. With a "one touch let-down button you can produce more milk in less time (convenient for moms who may need to pump at the office).
Medela has thought of every necessary detail (and all of the extras that we've come to expect from this leading manufacturer of breast pumps & breastfeeding accessories) making pumping while at work, on the go, or even at home easier and more comfortable.
I would highly recommend the Pump in Style Advanced Shoulder Bag!
