1. Halves the pumping time
Being a mom is the most exhausting, yet wonderful job you’ve probably ever had. There never seem to be enough hours in the day. By pumping from both breasts at the same time, you can half the time compared to pumping each breast in turn.**
2. Prompts an extra let down
Using a double pump has been shown to get the milk-releasing hormone oxytocin flowing, resulting in an additional let down reflex within the breast, this means that you can express up to 18% more milk in just one pumping session.**
3. Yields milk with higher energy content
When you double pump, your breast is better drained. As a result, the expressed milk has a higher fat content than what would be pumped in a single pumping session. Great to boost weight gain in your baby!
4. Flexible usage
A double pump can be used as a single when required. This gives you the best of both worlds; you can express from one breast and nurse your baby at the same time, or pump from both breasts and save the feed for later.
