Breastfeeding offers the best nourishment and a wonderful bonding experience between mum and baby.  Still, there might be times when we mum’s need a little helping hand, a break – or both!

For when you’re at home, at work or on the go, or times when grandparents, friends and relatives may be helping out, a good breast pump can be indispensable.

It can be hard for mums to decide on which breast pump to buy, especially if you are a first-time mum, yet MAM have a solution for every mum from Manual, Electric, or Double Electric pumps.

Choosing a breast pump

Manual pumps are a popular option when mums first start to express milk and particularly useful in the early days. They are also a good value way to figure out if expressing is for you.  Manual pumps are quiet and discreet as they have no motor and perfect for popping in your handbag.  If you’re planning to express frequently – or are returning to work or have twins – you way want to consider an electric pump as they can express more milk in a shorter period of time, and possibly a little more convenient as they essentially do the hard work for you.

Fortunately, the experts at MAM imagined a world where you don’t have to make a choice between a manual or electric breast pump. Where you don’t have to worry about running out of battery life. When you don’t need to stress about whether there’s somewhere to plug in your device…

Hailed as the Mary Poppins bag of the breast pump world the MAM 2in1 Single Electric Pump is a  neat device that gives you the flexibility of a manual or electric pump all in one device and offers a solution for smooth and comfortable milk expressing. From simplicity of use, to versatility, hygiene and safety – the MAM 2in1 Breast Pump is the busy breastfeeding mum’s new best friend. 

The MAM 2in1 Single Electric Pump has a smart two-phase stimulation and expression mode, quiet pumping and offers mum the option of 9 different suction strengths. The MAM 2in1 Pump guarantees hassle-free use whether you are at home, at work or on the go. 

It’s simple to switch to a lightweight, discreet manual pump in 2 easy steps by swapping the top of the pump from the electric head to the manual.  The ergonomic manual pump handle is designed for comfort and ensures relaxed and effortless pumping and its hygienic funnel cover makes it ideal for travel, keeping your pump clean. Plus, it has a timer and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 5 hours so that mums are free to pump away from a plug socket. (RRP £130) 
Now, do you see what mums mean about this being the Mary Poppins bag of the breast pump world!? 

But there’s more…

The MAM 2in1 Double Electric pump offers all of the above, with the extra option to individually adjust the suction strength for each breast and 3 different pumping modes: simultaneously, alternate or left/right only (RRP: £200).
