This gentle breastpump is ideal for a mom who just needs to pump occasionally. Simplisse products were designed by mothers and lactation consultants to work like your baby's mouth, emphasizing compression rather than suction.
- Gentle Compression Technology
Your baby holds your breast in his mouth while using his tongue and jaw to move against the aereola and nipple. This movement stimulates your milk ducts and causes your milk to "let down". The Simplisse Manual Breast Pump has been carefully designed by lactation consultants to work with this natural function of your breast to minimizing tugging and pulling.
- Super-Soft BabyFace® Flexible Breastcup
Patented breast cup will actually conform to your breast; mimicing your baby's tongue and mouth while you're pumping milk. Flexible breast cups gently puff in and out using natural stimulation (instead of high suction) to coax milk from the breast. The outer breastcup emulates baby’s mouth during breastfeeding by gently compressing the areola, while the inner breastcup produces a fluttering motion – like baby’s tongue – again, to comfortably elicit milk. The breastcups are made of a very soft and flexible material that’s almost squishy, so it form-fits to mom’s breast and moves with mom while expressing.
Hooray, a pump I can use without getting blisters! All the parts can be sanitized and come apart nicely for cleaning. The down side is that there are more pieces to fit together and when done incorrectly it does not work. This company also makes the best disposable nursing pads I've used. Other accessories are available, but since it pumps into a bottle, any storage system can work. I'd get it again, without doubt.
This is a wonderful pump. It is extremely comfortable and expresses breastmilk gently but efficiently. Within a minute or two of pumping I already had over an ounce collected which is fabulous for a manual pump. I definitely recommend this pump!
This pump is not worth it. It takes forever to get a drop of milk- they took the gentle thing a little too far. You have to pump and pump and by the time you start getting anything, you have a major cramp in your hand. When I used this, I got more milk out by expressing my milk by hand and would often end up taking off the pump to express milk directly into the bottle!
