Medela Harmony Manual Pump
The Harmony pumps more milk in less time thanks to its 2-phase expression technology, the first research-based breastpump technology that mimics a baby's natural nursing rhythm.
Comfortable for occasional use
The ergonomic manual handle makes pumping discreet and comfortable.
The Harmony is small, quiet and lightweight. If you want to pump while you are out shopping or at the gym, it allows you to be discreet, independent and mobile.
2-Phase Expression Technology
Medela's product development is based on evidence-based research into a baby’s natural feeding behaviour. This has led to the development of 2-phase expression technology which mimics the baby's natural sucking rhythm to express more milk in less time. The 2-phase expression technology consists of:
Phase One - Stimulation: a fast, light pumping rhythm to stimulate the milk ejection reflex and get the milk flowing
Phase Two - Expression: a slower pumping rhythm to express milk gently and efficiently
The benefits of this include:
> Up to 18% more milk is produced during double pumping compared to single
> Provides quality of milk with high energy content, beneficial for preterm infants
> High energy content indicates increased breast drainage which assists in the maintenance of lactation
> Increased levels of prolactin that can lead to increased milk production
> Twice as fast as single pumping to get the same amount of breastmilk
Medela Harmony Manual 2-Phase Breastpump is a light, convenient and clever breast pump.As a worldwide leader Medela's emphasis on evidence-based research of baby's natural feeding behaviour has led to the innovations of 2 phase expression and Calma.2-phase expression mimics the baby's natural sucking rhythm to express more milk in less time. Short, stimulating patterns are followed by longer, more intensive ones, providing optimal milk flow.Calma, the uniquely designed feeding solution for breast milk, enables the baby to pause and breathe regularly therefore helping to maintain their learned feeding behaviour at the breast.

Choosing the Right Breastshield Size for You
A size M PersonalFit Breastshield is included in all Medela personal use pumps. However, every woman is unique and one breastshield does not fit all. This is why Medela offers a range to allow mothers to choose exactly the right size. Figure A on the right shows a breastshield that is the correct size. The example in figure B is too small and the one in figure C is too large. In order to ensure maximum comfort and efficiency while expressing milk, mothers can choose between five PersonalFit Breastshield sizes: S (21mm), M (24mm), L (27mm), XL (30mm) and XXL (36mm).
Review from Amazon
I use this to quickly and easily express at night when we've given baby a bottle of expressed milk - it's less of a faff than using my electric pump. It doesn't draw out as much milk but I love the convenience of a manual pump for nighttime expressing. It's much less disruptive and easier to clean and assemble.
I can not recommend this enough! I have the swing which is a great electric pump but this manual pump is just as good! I used it when I left my baby for weddings and other occasions and it is so good. I tell any breastfeeding mum to get one!!!
