There are now more and more breastpumps in the market. Which one to choose and what makes each one unique? We got to try the Haenim 7S breastpump and I find it very suitable especially for exclusively pumping mummies due to the functions and compatibility with the Haenim 7S Breastpump App.
Haenim 7S is the world’s first BLUETOOTH Breast Pump! This means that the pump can be controlled on your phone, via bluetooth, using the Haenim 7S App! The App can
(a) Save your fave controls and it will run automatically!
(b) Records pump session details like date/time, duration.
(c) You can input the volume expressed at each session!
(d) Graph to help you monitor your expression volume.
(e) Set reminders/alarms for your next pump session!
These were the items that came in the box. Breastpump, flanges, flange covers, silicon flange pads, milk bottles, valves, timings, power plug, instruction manual and a warranty card.
I was very happy that it came with 3 sizes of flanges 24/28/32mm so you could pick one that was a best fit.
I also liked that the flanges came with silicon cushions so it was more comfortable against the breast during pumping. Another major plus point was that the bottles are 200ml bottles which were perfect for me especially when I’m engorged! I won’t need to pause pumping to switch bottles anymore!
This picture shows how to connect all the parts and tubings. Initially I had not known how to connect as it was different from my current breastpump. However it was really simple to fit everything together.
In case you only wanted to do single pumping, you can also remove one tubing from the pump and cap it up.
I tried out using the app to control the pump. It was very simple. Using the app, I could toggle between 9 different strengths for massage mode and pumping mode. You could also enter your name (I keyed in “mummy”) to customise and personalise your pump settings and for recording purposes. Yes, you can also use the pump by itself without the app. However, the app will have the timing for the pump session, which the pump set itself doesn’t have.
After you stop the pump, you will see this summary of the pump session (I am lazy so I usually skip the massage session as you can tell from the summary) It showed that I have pumped for 11 minutes and 9 seconds and I can also enter the volume that I have collect for each breast.
All the pump info will be stored and you can view them later on at the Stats page. As I latch most of the time, I only pump once a day. This chart shows my pump data over 3 days. It shows how long I have pumped for, and how much was my yield each day. I can also toggle to see the statistics for each day, or even for each month.
Usually the question asked when buying a new pump would be “Can it clear your breasts?”. Well for mine, I think they cleared well enough, and efficiently too. That said, clearing well and efficiently has many factors. One of which is whether you have used the correct flange size.
