Medela Pumps: Information and Demos

Here at CRAVINGS Maternity Baby Kids in Saskatoon, SK we truly believe in the Medela brand and we carry all 6 models of their pumps, including the rental option of the Symphony hospital grade breast pump. They are a research-based brand that is trusted by moms and used most often in hospitals for the support they give to not just your baby’s health but as a mother, your health and well-being as well.

If you cannot nurse, for whatever reason, pumping allows you to give your baby the milk that helps them develop and grow as well as keeping that intimate bond of life. Whether you want to initiate/build milk supply, pump here and there for a night out or multiple times a day, there is always a Medela pump for you!

Sonata is Medela’s newest and by far the most advanced model of pumps! The Sonata is a double-electric, daily use breast pump that is designed for the moms who pump several times a day. This pump is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery for pumping anywhere!

It is equipped with 2-phase expression technology with one-touch letdown button. It helps to provide more milk in less time when double pumping when compared to single pumping in the expression phase. The flexibility to choose between two clinically tested pumping rhythms for personal comfort.

The touch screen display and control illumination makes for easy operation and is inspired by the Medela hospital performance of the Symphony, giving you consistency in your pumping sessions. It is also the quietest personal-use breast pump which allows for discreet pumping anywhere, anytime.

This pump is smart! It connects with Smart Solution to the MyMedela app. When you purchase the Sonata you are also given a 30 day FREE Medela 24/7 Unlimited direct access to International Board Certified Lactation Consultants from your smart device through the app.

Freestyle is another Medela double-electric, daily use breast pump designed for pumping several times a day with a few fewer bells and whistles as the Sonata. It is also equipped with a rechargeable battery and compact lightweight motor with about 3-hour battery life.

It is also equipped with the same 2-phase expression technology and one-touch letdown. Express more milk in less time when using the Maximum Comfort Vacuum in the expression phase.

The digital display features a memory button, time and backlight for easy tracking and recording pump sessions in any environment. It comes with a portable microfiber carry bag designed specifically for your Freestyle breast pump parts for convenient transportation and organization.

This pump is not equipped with Smart Solution, but with purchase of the pump, you are also given a 30-day FREE Medela 24/7 Unlimited direct access to International Board Certified Lactation Consultants from your smart device through the app.

Next in line for Medela pumps in the Pump-in-Style double electric breast pump designed for moms who pump several times a day. Pump-in-Style has been the first choice of millions of moms for more than two decades.

That same 2-phase expression technology that is shown to get more milk when double pumping is also in the Pump-in-Style! With a battery pack that takes 8 AA batteries, you can now pump anywhere, anytime with it being built into a travel tote!

It has a single knob speed/ vacuum adjustment for comfortable pump settings as well as a removable cooler bag with contoured ice pack able to hold up to 4 bottles. The Pump-in-Style is available in three stylish microfiber bags; On-to-Go Tote, Backpack and Metro Bag. Of the three we only stock the Tote but inquire in store about the other options for Special Order.

As we keep moving down the line we have not come to the Medela Swing. The Swing is designed for occasional breast pump use or to pair with feeding as it is a single electric pump. It has a convenient AC adaptor or baby power options for charging and mobile pumping.

As with all of Medela’s pumps it has the 2-phase expression technology. This pump is at its most basic form of electric pumping with easy-to-use vacuum controls to let you choose your most comfortable setting.

This compact and lightweight pump are so small it can easily fit into your purse or diaper bag and even comes with a drawstring bag to keep you organized between sessions.

The last and least techy pump available from Medela is the Harmony single manual pump. This pump is for the mom who will rarely pump except the occasional time away from the baby.

Even this very basic pump is equipped with 2-phase expression technology with 2 ways to pump; Stimulation: fast and light to stimulate milk flow and then, Expression: slower and deeper flow.

This pump has a handy bottle stand to prevent spills and a soft-touch ergonomic swivel handle for comfort during every session of pumping.

We here at CRAVINGS understand this is a lot of information, but all of our staff are highly trained directly from Medela personnel to make sure we are always supplying you with the information and guidance to give you the most successful pumping experience!
