As the first and only breastpump to simulate a baby’s two-phase feeding process, Symphony provides natural, comfortable and efficient pumping.

Includes Pumping Program with options for both automatic and manual switching between pumping phases, based on moms’ needs.

Pumping Programs are stored on a Program Card, allowing further Pumping Programs to be implemented in the future by releasing alternate Program Cards as research supports it.

For moms’ convenience, one knob combines vacuum level and the number of cycles per minute in the expression phase.

Moms can switch between single and double pumping simply by adding or removing the second Pump Collection Set.

Specially designed membrane separates Pump Collection Set from pump mechanism, ensuring unmatched overflow protection without compromising vacuum capacity.

LCD Display indicates pumping phase, vacuum level, battery status, and other handling and service information.

Whisper-quiet; the world’s quietest symphony you are happy not to hear….

Available in both a standard and a rechargeable-battery version.

Two-Phase Feeding in Babies

Research has shown that a baby’s feeding is not a single continuous action, but rather a two-phase process in which the baby will initially suckle rapidly to stimulate the mother’s milk ejection reflex (MER), and induce milk “let-down”. This phase is referred to as “stimulation”. Once the breast has been sufficiently stimulated, milk begins flowing and the baby settles into a slower, more relaxed sucking speed for the actual feeding phase. This phase is called “expression.”

Two-Phase Pumping Program

The Symphony Breastpump produces such fantastic results and comfort because it utilizes a program that closely simulates this natural two-phase feeding pattern. The Two-Phase Pumping Program consists of a Stimulation/Let-Down Phase and an Expression Phase — just like real breastfeeding. The following chart illustrates how the Program works, with some of its benefits listed below:



Stimulation/Let-Down Phase

  • Rapid milk ejection reflex
  • Research-proven fixed cycles per minute
  • Individually adjustable vacuum for comfort

    Expression Phase
  • Comfort Flow Zone™ for maximum comfort and efficiency—gentle to the breast tissue.
  • Adjustable preset combination of vacuum and cycles per minute.
  • Supports milk production


Pumping Program stored on a Program Card, allowing further Pumping Programs to be implemented in the future by releasing alternate Program Cards as research supports it.
