Lansinoh Smartpump Review & Giveaway
One of my favorite brands that comes to mind as a breastfeeding mother is Lansinoh. Lansinoh offers an array of products from nursing pads to lanolin to breast pumps and even some of the best bottles I have ever used to feed my children. Today, I am reviewing the newest breast pump that Lansinoh has to offer and I must be honest-it’s pretty darn cool!
Lansinoh currently offers the Smartpump™ which is the ONLY pump with three pumping styles and eight adjustable suction levels and expression modes, allowing you to select the setting that works best for you. A closed-system design reduces the number of parts cleaned and prevents bacteria and mold growth due to milk backing up into the tubing or the motor.
The Lansinoh® Smartpump™ connects their pump technology to your smartphone via Bluetooth® using the free Lansinoh Baby™ App for tracking, reminders, and more.
Some other features of the pump include:
- 3 Customizable Pumping Styles
- 8 Suction Levels
- Maximizes milk production and comfort
- Innovative technology – mimics baby’s natural feeding pattern
- LCD Screen with timer keeps track of time
- Includes carry tote
- Part of Pump-Store-Feed system
- Compatible with Lansinoh® Simple Wishes™ Hands-Free Pumping Bra
- BPA and BPS free
- Pairs with the Lansinoh Baby App through Bluetooth to track your pumping sessions, breastfeeding, bottle feeding, diapers, growth, and more.

- Lansinoh® Smartpump™ Double Electric Breast Pump base unit

The pump retails for about $199, depending on where you get yours from. That is highly affordable compared to other double electronic breast pumps on the market today! I found the quality to be pretty superior for such a great price. I absolutely love the closed pump system as it was super easy to clean after each use.
The Lansinoh baby app was very easy and nice to use as well. It keeps a log of every ounce that it pumped, time you pumped for, and how many ounces came from which breast even! Not only that, it tracks your breastfeeding and bottle feeding to ensure that you baby gets exactly what he or she needs from you. You can also track your baby’s growth as well! Did I mention that this wonderful app is FREE?
Overall, I was absolutely pleased with the pump! The suction styles were absolutely perfect and did not hurt like some pumps out there. I also loved the screen and the fact it tracked how much time was actually spent pumping. For the price, I would definitely say that this pump is a must have as it is all around wonderful for the breastfeeding mother.
If you are a busy working mama like I am, I would recommend getting the Simple Wishes™ Hands-Free Pumping Bra which works perfectly with this pump. Personally, I type a lot-well, everyday-as it is my job so I normally need two hands to do my best. I also pump A LOT during the day as well so by using this bra, I can do both things at once without really having to think about it.
Another amazing must have, in my opinion, is the Thera°Pearl® 3-in-1 Breast Therapy Packs. Now, I used this after the birth of my firstborn because I was so afraid of engorged, painful breasts! At times, my milk ducts would seem to slow down when I pumped or become a bit clogged so I would throw this little pack in the microwave for a few seconds and then place them on my breast as I pumped which helped to open up any ducts that were getting backed up. By using the warming feature, it helped me to pump faster and easier. Using the hot packs is a wonderful idea for treating Mastitis as well. Additionally, you can freeze these packs if you are dealing with engorgement pain or swelling.
