Power Pumping - increase milk supply with this innovative function
Ardo Alyssa is the world's first breastpump with an automatic Power Pumping programme. This imitates the baby's cluster feeding which is the sucking behaviour that occurs when the baby is in a growth phase and demands the breast more often. With this behaviour, the baby naturally stimulates milk production.
The automatic Power Pumping of the Alyssa is a predefined one-hour interval pumping consisting of three pumping phases and two pause phases. While the duration of the pumping and pausing phases is predefined, you can adjust the vacuum and cycle settings to your personal needs at any time.
Power Pumping is a method recommended by healthcare professionals to increase milk quantity and stabilise fluctuating milk quantities.
Memory Plus – personalised expressing at the touch of a button
Your pumping pattern is a very individual combination of suction strength (vacuum) and suction frequency (cycle) with different durations. Once you have found the ideal settings that make your milk flow best, you can save them by pressing the Memory Plus button. This function saves the entire pumping history and automatically recalls it the next time pumping takes place.
Rechargeable integrated battery
The Alyssa can be used cordless at home, at work, and in any place independently without the need for electricity. A fully charged battery allows you to pump up to 8 times.
Safe and reliable
The Ardo Alyssa is a medical device certified to 93/42/EEC. All parts which come into contact with breast milk are BPA, BPS & phthalate-free.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does it mean when we say that Ardo Alyssa Double is a 2-phase breastpump?
Ardo Alyssa was developed based on babies’ sucking behaviour. The stimulation mode with fast
cycle (suction frequency) and low vacuum (suction strength) gets breast milk flowing or triggers
the let-down reflex, while the expressing mode with slow cycle (suction frequency) and high,
comfortable vacuum (suction strength) enables the efficient expressing of breast milk.
Which are the best vacuum and cycle settings?
Every woman is unique and has different needs and sensibilities, so it is important to choose a
breastpump that offers personalised settings. Ardo Alyssa starts with gentle settings to protect
your breasts. You can adjust the level of vacuum (suction strength) and the speed of the cycle
(suction frequency) at any time during each expressing phase (stimulation or expressing mode)
to suit your needs. Pleasant non-painful settings of vacuum and cycle are very important for
successful expressing results.
What is the difference between double pumping and single pumping?
In single pumping, milk is expressed from only one breast. Double pumping, on the other hand,
involves expressing milk from both breasts at the same time. Ardo Alyssa Double is a double pump,
but can also be used as a single pump. It has been proven that double expressing allows more
milk to be expressed in less time. But what is more important, is that expressing is comfortable.
Can I increase my milk quantity with Ardo Alyssa?
Yes, with Ardo Alyssa Double the amount of milk can be increased particularly well and in a short
time because this is not only a double pump, but also the first breastpump on the market with
automatic Power Pumping.
What is automatic Power Pumping?
Automatic Power Pumping mimics cluster feeding, a baby breastfeeding behaviour that increases
milk volume by sucking more frequently at the breast. These are periods in fact when babies and
toddlers want to be breastfed frequently, interrupted by short breaks - usually in the early evening
over 2-3 hours.
Automatic Power Pumping is a predefined one-hour interval expressing - expressing three times,
interrupted by two relaxing pauses - which increases the amount of milk. While the duration of the
expressing phases and the pauses are predefined, the mother can adjust the vacuum and cycle
settings to her own personal requirements at any time.
How often should I use automatic Power Pumping?
Milk production is increased when Power Pumping is used 1 to 2 times a day for 3 to 4 days.
Automatic Power Pumping can be used throughout breastfeeding if you want to increase milk
How does Memory Plus work?
Once you have found your ideal settings where your breast milk flows best, and you express most
successfully, you can use Memory Plus to save your ideal expressing history. All the settings you
selected during expressing in both phases incl. their duration will be saved and the Ardo Alyssa will
switch off. The next time you turn on your Ardo Alyssa, it will automatically start in the expressing
sequence you saved and turn off after the saved duration.
Can I change my Memory Plus settings?
You can manually change the vacuum and cycle values, redefine the duration of the expressing
cycle, and save the new expressing cycle, at any time. This replaces the previous sequence.
You can turn off Memory Plus at any time by touching the button longer until it switches off.
How long does it take to charge the Ardo Alyssa Double & how long can you express with it?
The Ardo Alyssa Double is fully charged after about 2 hours and can then be operated for about 2
hours, depending on the set intensity. With a fully charged battery, you can express up to 8 times.
Ardo Alyssa Double can also be charged while expressing. However, this increases the charging time.
