ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the United States celebrates August as National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, Lansinoh Laboratories introduces its latest momovation: the Lansinoh® Affinity™ Double Electric Breast Pump. The newest addition in the line of premium breastfeeding support and baby products, the Affinity™ Double Electric Breast Pump gives moms exactly what they’ve said they want and need in a breast pump: an affordable, comfortable, and efficient double electric pump in an easy-to-assemble and easy-to-clean design that enables a mom to express breastmilk from both breasts simultaneously.
“For a breastfeeding mom who wants to continue to provide breastmilk for her baby upon returning to work, expressing her milk is necessary to keep up her milk supply and is one way that she can leave her milk behind for her baby,” says Gina Ciagne, Certified Lactation Counselor and Director of Breastfeeding and Consumer Relations for Lansinoh Laboratories, Inc. “Essentially, a pump is designed to mimic as closely as possible the way a baby feeds. It signals the body to release the milk by stimulation to the breast. Make no mistake, pumping can never completely replicate a baby feeding at the breast, though it is important that a pump be as efficient as possible to comfortably stimulate milk let-down.”
Comfort is an important component of the new pump design. Its developers considered the shape and feel of the flanges; the strength, rhythm, and adjustability of the suction; and how to, as closely as possible, replicate the way babies trigger the release of milk by stimulation to the breast. In addition to comfort, Affinity™ Double Electric Breast Pump gives moms more of what they want in their breast pumping experience, including ease of assembly and cleanup and a discrete, lightweight design they can use to pump anywhere. Affinity™ Double Electric Breast Pump is also a more hygienic option, guaranteed to prevent mom’s milk from backing up into the tubing or motor—a common issue with other more expensive breast pumps.
Milk backing up into the tubing doesn’t just make clean-up more time-consuming, it can create a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. This creates a potential health hazard if ingested by the baby and increases the likelihood of mechanical breakdown—hassles Affinity™ moms will not have to face.
Lansinoh® Affinity™ Double Electric Breast Pump delivers on all of these points and more, including a combination of features not found in any other double electric breast pump:
The Lansinoh® Affinity™ Double Electric Breast Pump is available at retailers including Walmart, Babies“R”Us, and Target and online at www.Diapers.com, www.Walmart.com, www.Target.com, www.Amazon.com, and www.drugstore.com.
