Medela 2-Phase Expression Technology – How it all began:

Unlike other breastpump brands, Medelas’ breastpumps feature the innovative 2-Phase Expression Technology. The benefits of Medela’s 2-Phase Expression technology mean more milk in less time! Just take a look below at the evolution of Medela’s 2-Phase Expression Technology…

Back in the 1950s, Medela studied how babies breastfed so they could imitate the natural breastfeeding experience through their own products. It has been observed that there are two stages in which babies feed. Thanks to researcher Peter Hartmann, he helped expand research on babies’ natural feeding pattern and paved the way. These are the two phases he found in infants during breastfeeding:

  1. Babies nurse more rapidly but more gently primarily in the beginning. This helps the milk to begin expressing.
  2. After the stimulation phase and the milk begins to flow, babies have been shown to nurse at a slower but deeper speed which aids in the expression of more milk in a faster manner.
With this research, Medela’s 2-Phase Expression technology was born! Comprised of the “Stimulation mode” and the “Expression mode”, it’ mimics the phases above.

Medela 2-Phase Expression Technology – Benefits:

Benefits of the Medela’s 2-Phase Expression technology are numerous. Here is just a couple below:
