There are three types of breastpumps available for sale or rental in the Touro Lactation Center: hospital-grade electric, personal-use electric and manual.
Hospital-Grade Double Electric Pump for rent:
This pump is designed to help build and maintain mom’s milk supply. These pumps are generally recommended for women who have difficulty nursing because of medical reasons, such as mothers of low birth weight, premature infants who may have trouble latching on to the breast. Touro's breastpump rental station carries the Lactina
pumps from Medela
Personal-Use Electric for sale: Personal-use electric pumps are often faster and more effective at removing breast milk than manual pumps. A double electric pump can cut pumping time by emptying both breasts simultaneously. They are ideal for working moms who pump throughout the day to maintain their milk supply. These pumps are easy to carry to the office and come with all the necessary attachments, including removable cooler carrier and cooling element, battery pack, AC adapter and collection containers, lids and stands.
Our single electric pumps can best be used daily or occasionally. We offer the Swing and Single Deluxe breastpumps by Medela.
Manual Pumps for sale:
Manual pumps are small, lightweight and easily portable. They are a good fit for stay-at-home moms who will only miss feedings occasionally. It includes a breast shield, containers, lids and a bottle stand. Touro carries the Medela Harmony
