Our Swing Maxi Flex is a game changer for your pumping journey as it produces double the milk in half the time, leaving you free to get on with being the amazing mum you are!

Why use a double pump?

Double pumping means that you can produce more milk with a higher energy content than expressing from each breast in turn. If you are pumping more frequently, a double pump would be much more effective in your routine, helping you produce more liquid gold in less time.

Research has shown milk mums expressed during double pumping had higher fat content than when they were single pumping each breast in turn.

During feeding or pumping, the fat content of the milk increases steadily. Because double pumping results in an extra let down and 18% more milk, the breasts are drained more completely. So the higher fat content is simply a sign that the breasts are well emptied during double pumping, more so than single pumping. For babies who are born early and can only take small volumes of milk per day, this higher calorie content can be especially helpful.

Not only does the Swing Maxi Flex have all of the benefits of double pumping but it also features our new PersonalFit Flex breast shields, which provide a more flexible fit to best support all mums, whatever size or shape you may be! They are also clinically proven to produce 11% more milk – winning!

Like all of the products in our range, the Swing Maxi Flex has been developed following extensive breastfeeding research, so you feel confident that our breastfeeding expertise has gone into every aspect of the product. The pump features our 2-Phase Expression technology, which mimics your baby’s sucking for a more natural pumping experience for both mother and baby.

The Swing Maxi Flex is free from BPA, and provides a closed system to protect from overflow and means you can pump in whatever position is best for you – allowing you to make sure your pumping time is the most comfortable that it can be!
