It is very simple to take apart and clean.
I keep this in the car, along with a bottle (just in case).
The plastic is smooth and nick-free.The breast pump simulates the natural baby sucking behaviour at the mother's breast.Simple and elegant design, medela Harmonys ergonomic design is intuitive and allows for very easy use.Light and discreet, medela Harmony is a manual pump so it does not require electricity or batteries for operation and is almost silent.It is small, lightweight and easy to transport.I also love that it can "suck" longer win 7 os cracker than the electric pumps.Most mums will run into situations where they need to express milk for their own comfort.Medela Harmony is one of the few manual pumps in the world featuring 2-Phase Expression technology.This pump is especially recommended for mums who travel: for use either as a backup for a double electric pump or on its own if you are not a frequent pumper.
Comfort, it comes with two nozzles of different sizes depending on the size of your breasts.
Once milk starts to flow, you switch to the longer side of the handle which creates a slower sucking cycle to express the majority of your milk.
The pump handle itself pops right off the unit for easy cleaning.
Versatility, it takes skill to be able to use a hand pump and do anything else at the same time.For mums who intend to breastfeed all the time, small manual breast pumps may seem unnecessary, but it is always good to have something lightweight and compact on hand.I have been exclusively breastfeeding my son for 6 months now, and the first 3 months was all pumping and bottle feeding (due to various complications with his latch, which thankfully went away as he grew).The lever has a nice, soft rubber cover that makes pumping a little easier on your hands and helps the pump operate quietly.Ease of Cleaning, it's a little tricky to clean the narrowest parts of the pump, so I usually just hold it under the faucet for an extra minute.Just requires a little patience and hand exercise.The rubber seals are delicate, so keep that in mind when you're detaching pieces (I usually just leave them on when I clean the pump).
