More milk with an automatic breast pump?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have read in a product review of an automatic breast pump that with its specific milking technique you're supposed to achieve higher quantities in breast milk as compared to manual or other electric models that do not use this technique (http://www.ameda-breastpump.com/Ameda-breastpump.html). Can anyone confirm this? Thank you in advance for your honest answers!

Welcoming to Mothering! I'm moving this thread to the Breastfeeding forum where its better hosted.

 

Anyone have thoughts on automatic pumps to share?

I don't know why they call that an 'automatic' pump, but I have used ameda pump for over 3 years and really like it. It has two different controls for suction speed and strength,but you need to adjust it to get letdown, then pump. I'm quite happy with the pump and its portability and parts.

The medela freestyle is probably more 'automatic' in that you turn it on and it starts a letdown cycle, then switches into an expression mode.

Yeah, that pump does not have an automatic letdown feature like some others do, but it does let you adjust suction and speed so you can simulate it yourself. I personally don't like the automatic ones as they don't match the most optimal speed/suction adjustment for me, but some people love them. Mimicking your baby's pattern or the typical baby pattern can really help you to pump more though for sure.
