The “right” breast pump differs from person to person. Some women prefer a manual pump with no fuss, while others want state-of-the-art technology to help guide them through the process. No matter your preferences, you can be sure Medela has an option to meet your needs.

If you’re searching for an electric breast pump that’s portable, easy to use, and can fit in with your lifestyle, the Swing Max Double Electric Breast Pump could be the one for you.

This pump weighs less than a pound, making it a great option for moms on the go. Sit back and relax as we breakdown everything you need to know about the Swing Maxi.

Mobility = Flexibility

Moms have an ever-growing to-do list, so multi-tasking and finding ways to save time is always a top priority.

With Medela’s Swing Maxi™ Double Electric Breast Pump you can do exactly that.

Unlike traditional plug-in breast pumps, this completely wireless pump has a rechargeable battery, so you don’t have to be glued to one spot while pumping. For convenience it features a USB type C adaptor for quick charging anywhere. Once fully charged, the battery can last for up to six pumping sessions.

Pump on the way to an event, in between work meetings, cleaning around the house, or even while on a walk, there is truly no limit to what you can do while pumping with this new compact breast pump.

Its lightweight and compact design allows you to pop it in your pocket or loop it onto your waistband, giving you full mobility to do anything you need to while still pumping.

Tech Savvy

The Swing Maxi pump features Medela's 2-Phase Expression technology that imitates the natural sucking rhythm of babies to optimize milk flow.

However, what really gives this product an extra edge is the Bluetooth connectivity feature.

This modern twist on traditional pumping connects you the Medela Family app. The multiuse app allows you to personalize your profile, track your pregnancy and pumping sessions, and fully control your pump from your phone — there’s even a hands-free option available.

The app provides insights, tips, and suggestions based on the tracking data to assist you in achieving the goals you’ve set for you and your baby.

Less Is More

Some breast pumps come with tons of fiddly parts to assemble, luckily the Swing Maxi keeps things simple.

In the box, you will find:
  • A backpack with integrated cooler 
  • Two 150 ml bottles with lids 
  • Two bottle stands 
  • A USB charging cable 
  • A USB power adapter 
  • The Swing Maxi motor unit 
  • Two PersonalFit Flex™ connectors 
  • Two PersonalFit Flex breast shield size 21 mm 
  • Two PersonalFit Flex breast shield size 24 mm 

The soft rim PersonalFit Flex™ breast shields are designed to put less pressure on your milk ducts during pumping sessions, which not only ensures your comfort but actually helps you produce more milk. The closed pumping system prevents milk from overflowing and leaking into the pump mechanism. 

No Engineering Degree Required

This pump is extremely uncomplicated to put together and is quick and easy to clean, saving you even more time.

The included backpack gives extra value to this bundle, providing a place to store your breast milk, the pump, and its parts when not in use (or other baby products you may need while on the go).

The pump has a simple 4-button interface with 9 pre-programmed settings, making it very straightforward to operate.

Final Verdict

While the Swing Maxi is not the cheapest breast pump on the market, you get a lot of bang for your buck. The Swing Maxi™ Double Electric Breast Pump by Medela has a few great bells and whistles while staying intuitive and user-friendly.

Its unique design and size allow you to take it anywhere you go, and the capability to pump hands-free. This product gives you the flexibility to set your own pumping schedule and keep track on the Medela app. The Swing Maxi has also been clinically-proven to help you express more milk in a shorter time span than a traditional pump.

With Bluetooth control and tracking features, fewer parts to assemble, and a quick and easy clean-up process, the Swing Maxi is a great option for active moms looking to integrate stress-free pumping into their life.
