The Medela swing breast pump is ideal for women who need to pump while on the go. As with almost all Medela breast pumps, you will benefit from the “2-Phase Expression Technology” that assists women to express milk by emulating the way a baby sucks on the breast. This technology is one of the key reasons why Medela is world renowned as a quality breast pump provider.
The Medela swing breast pump is Medela’s most affordable single electric breast pump. It is lightweight and easy to use on the go. It even comes with its own shoulder strap and belt clip to increase its portability. All parts of the Medela swing breast pump that come in contact with your breast milk are BPA free. The pump is also very efficient, allowing you to express more milk in less time.

And another review from a different source
The 2-Phase Expression Technology clearly differentiates the Medela Swing Breast Pump from other competing single electric breast pumps.
What I like:
- All parts that come into contact with breast milk are PBA free, which is an absolute must
- The Swing is lightweight, portable and small. You can travel with it and use it in a variety of different location.
- It is discreet. The motor is virtually silent. Again, this makes it excellent for use in many situations and places.
- You can plug Swing in or operate it on 4 AA batteries (not included).
- It has easy-to-use vacuum controls that let you pick which setting provides you with the most comfortable use.
- Medela has an excellent reputation.
Overall the Medela Swing is an excellent device. It gets great reviews from its many users. The Swing is designed to have a low price and to be very portable, while at the same time giving you the quality, including the 2-Phase Expression Technology, that you have come to expect from Medela.
