Here you can find products around the topic of baby-friendly breastfeeding and all about our mamivac® breast pumps.
Expressing breast milk requires some practice (just like breastfeeding does by the way). It is worth taking plenty of time for your first expressing in particular. Choose a quiet and comfortable place. It may happen that you will express only little or no milk at all with your first efforts. Don't be disappointed. You will soon obtain more expressed milk with some practice.
Make sure that the breast shield has the correct size and fits snugly. This is important for building a vacuum which is required to express milk. To be able to express milk, the let-down reflex has to be triggered. Therefore, mamivac® developed the 2-phase technology for you. Phase 1 gently stimulates the breast to trigger the let-down reflex. In addition, you may gently massage the breast before and during expressing. Phase 2 ensures the maximum flow of milk in the shortest possible time. With the mamivac® 2-phase technology, breast milk can be expressed as gently and naturally as ever possible.

Breast shield too large:
The simultaneous expressing of milk from both breasts saves about 50% of time. This gives the mom more time - not only with multiple births. The patented valve technology ensures double pumping without suction loss. Our electric breastpumps offer direct connections for two sets.
The electric breast pump mamivac® SENSITIVE-C is leight, compact, ergonomic and quiet. Recommended by health professionals, available in your pharmacy!
