The Medela Mini Electric breast pump is a good compact electric breast pump for mothers who occasionally express.
Compact & Portable
The motor in the Medela Mini Electric is located on top of the breast shield, which makes the pump very compact and easy to operate with one hand. It fits perfectly in my handbag & even my lunch box.
Main & Battery Operation
Medela Mini Electric can be used while plugged into mains or with using 2 AA battery. With battery, I can pump any where without needing to be close to electric plug. I can pump anyway without restriction because previously I tried pumped at home, office, parent’s house, hotels, surau and yes even toilet.
Adjustable suction control for mom’s personal comfort. The suction speed can be controlled with a dial at the side of the motor.
Another benefit of the motor unit located on top of the breastshield is that there are no tubes: expressed milk flows directly into the bottle. Parts that come into contact with breastmilk are BPA-free.
This Mini Electric breast-pump is made up of only five parts, so cleaning and assembly only takes a couple of minutes. If I stored the milk directly after pump, only breastshield, connector and valve need to be washed. This is very important as I usually pump in the office and I need things to be done as fast as possible.
Breast flange size:
24 mm standard size (other sizes are available but sold separately).
