I’ve partnered with Lansinoh for this post.
I’ve been using a Lansinoh breast pump since 2012 — more specifically I’ve been using the Affinity Double Electric Breast Pump from Lansinoh. I’m not sure what year it was first introduced, but I found it to be a fabulous pump. Just shortly before Gideon was born, Lansinoh sent me their newest pump, the SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump to review. I have to admit, I was hesitant to tear into the packaging. It wasn’t because I thought the pump would be bad, but I just loved my old pump so much that it felt almost wasteful to get a new pump. You know what they say, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. It’s my job to review products though, so I opened up the packaging and gave it a try.
In the 6 weeks since Gideon has been born, I’ve used both pumps. I actually keep one on the main level of the house and one in my bedroom. As I mentioned, my older Lansinoh pump is still working great, but honestly, I’ve discovered that the SignaturePro is even better! It feels like there is less tugging and pressure and yet I’m still getting just as much milk out.
The SignaturePro comes with the following:
- Lansinoh® SignaturePro™ Double Electric Breast Pump base unit
- (2) 5oz Lansinoh® mOmma® Bottles
- Lansinoh® mOmma® NaturalWave™ Nipple and cap
- 2 Breastmilk Storage Bags
- 2 Disposable Nursing Pads
- Lansinoh® HPA Lanolin sample
- 2 Breast Flange Bodies
- 2 Collars, diaphragms, and sealing discs
- 2 ComfortFit™ flanges (25mm)
- 2 White valves (2 extra)
- 2 Bottle Stands
- 3 Connection tubes
- Tubing strap
- Y Tubing connector
- Pump connector
- AC Adaptor
- Tote Bag
- Pump manual with everything you need to know to get started
The SignaturePro has three pumping styles and eight adjustable suction levels, allowing you to select the setting that works best for you. The pump will start out with a 2 minute session designed to help you achieve a letdown. I have found that it works really well and I usually have a letdown within a minute. Once you have a letdown, you can switch it over manually to the main suction (expression) mode or it will do it automatically for you at the 2 minute mark.
This pump features an LCD screen so you can easily keep track of how long you’ve pumped. There are minimal pieces needed to assemble the bottles for pumping which means less pieces to wash when you’re done (and makes me very happy!). And when it’s time to take the pump with you, it comes with a handy storage/travel bag.
Right now I’m pumping about 2-3 times a day, so after 6 weeks of use, I feel very confident in recommending the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump. Not only does it comfortably and efficiently enable me to express my breast milk every day, it’s an extremely affordable double electric breast pump too. You can find it at many of your favorite baby-supply stores, including Amazon.com.
