Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump Review
The Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump is another comfortable and effective manual breast pump. While I didn’t find this pump particularly remarkable, it also doesn’t have any glaring problems or serious drawbacks.
What’s in the box?
The Lansinoh manual pump comes with everything you need to pump and feed your baby because it includes a nipple/teat that attaches to the milk collection bottle. Two different size breast flanges are included so most women will find a comfortable fit.
- 1 breast pump body (the piece that attaches the pump handle, the breast flange and the milk collection bottle)
- 2 flanges – one 25mm and one 30.5mm size
- Pump handle
- Diaphragm – connects pump handle to pump body and creates suction
- Milk flow valve
- 1 milk collection bottle (5oz/ 160mL size)
- Bottle stand
- Nipple/teat and cap for feeding
- Breastmilk storage bag samples
- Instruction manual
Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump Pros:
- 2-phase expression – This means there are two settings – one to stimulate letdown and one for expressing milk. This feature is not often found in manual breast pumps but it is very helpful in quickly stimulating a letdown so you can express milk efficiently (Note, Medela Harmony also offers 2-phase expression)
- Offers two flange sizes so it will fit most women comfortably – Size 25mm and 30.5mm. Both come in the box (no extra purchase necessary)
- Designed for compatibility with the Lansinoh Thera Pearl 3-in-1 Breast Therapy packs – you can apply warm or cool therapy while pumping
- Comes with a small bottle stand – helps prevent spills when you set down the pump
Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump Cons:
- Only compatible with other Lansinoh products – a little inconvenient if you are using other bottles or have another pump from a different brand
- Silicone rim on the breast flange is a bit uncomfortable because it can pull skin – it does not slide easily on your breast and it made it harder to do breast compressions while pumping
Should you buy the Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump?
Overall I recommend this pump if you will use it infrequently and you aren’t already using a Philips or Medela electric pump (in which case you should purchase the compatible manual pump from the same brand). Since this Lansinoh pump comes with a teat for feeding, you can pump and feed your baby directly from the milk collection bottle, which makes it very convenient. Finally, it really is comfortable to hold and use, so if it will be your only pump, this is a good option to avoid tired or sore hands while pumping.
