We had a request from a customer coming to Calgary on vacation… In addition to a car seat and stroller rental, she wanted to reserve a Medela Breast pump rental for use during her stay. She has a Medela Symphony breast pump at home but did not want to lug it on board the aircraft as part of her carry-on. We were happy to help:

Comments About Our Breast Pump Rentals: “I will definitely recommend your company to others…Thanks for the great service!”

The Medela Symphony Breast Pump is a multi-user, hospital-grade breastpump. When renting the pump, each user must purchase a pumping kit which contains the tubing, breast shields and bottles. Each kit also has a protective membrane component that allows the pump to provide suction without breastmilk ever interacting with the mechanism of the pump. Double Pumping kits are $79.00 for the kit. The kit is yours to keep and reuse whenever needed.

The surface of the pump itself is cleaned and sanitized when it is returned by each user.  Pumps such as the Pump in Style, Swing or other electric pumps are single-user products with no barrier to prevent breastmilk from reaching the pump mechanism. For that reason, pumps such as these should only be used by one individual and never rented, borrowed or purchased second-hand (even if used only once!).

About the Medela Symphony Breast Pump: Medela (www.medela.com) is the leading breastpump name in hospitals and with breastfeeding experts. Proven to reduce pumping time Symphony is Medela’s latest innovation in hospital-grade electric double pumps. With breakthrough 2-Phase Expression® pumping, Symphony is proven to reduce pumping time through faster let-down and milk flow.

Symphony implements the results of extensive research on electric breastpumps initiated by Medela® and conducted by internationally renowned lactation researcher Peter Hartmann, Ph.D. More efficient than ever—automatic or manual switch to expression mode for individual performance. Adaptable for the future—a program card supplies the necessary information for 2-Phase expression pumping. Clear & concise information—LCD display indicates the pumping mode, vacuum level, battery status and other handling and service information. One-knob comfort control—one knob combines vacuum level and the number of cycles per minute in the expression mode. Single or double pumping—switch between single and double pumping simply by applying or removing the second Collection Kit to the breast .

Breast pumps- The new carry on?

I was reading a very interesting article in the New Yorker today http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2009/01/19/090119fa_fact_lepore  about Breastfeeding, Breast Pumps and Mothers. As a big fan of Pumping (my twins were preemies and pumping enabled me to ‘breastfeed’ them) I thought the article raised a lot of relevant questions.

One Tiny Suitcase (www.onetinysuitcase.ca) also received a call from a mother yesterday who was on vacation in the Calgary area and looking to rent a breast pump for an ’emergency’. Last year our business expanded to include Medela Breast Pump rentals http://www.onetinysuitcase.ca/Medelapumps.htm. We mostly rent outMedela breast pump rentals the Breast Pumps to new Moms in the Calgary area but we have had some travellers request them as well.

So it raised the question of how women travel and pump? I personally know of women who have travelled with their Breast Pumps as part of their carry on luggage and pumped while on the plane, in their hotel, in the car (those car adapters come in handy when you are parking in a parking lot). I used to bring expressed milk with us when we travelled because our flights were pretty short and packed my breast pump.

Medela evens makes the Pump in Style in a backpack format. Good for trekking? I’m not sure but the new Freestyle pump is hands free…
