The Lansinoh Affinity Double Electric Breast Pump is designed to provide nursing mom’s the ability to provide their babies with breast milk when breast feeding may not be possible. All of the controls for the single and dual pumping system are easy to access and use. Lansinoh designed the system leave nothing out and it includes everything a nursing mom will need to express and feed their baby and it fits in carrying case (not included).
The heart of the Linsinoh system is the pump that provides the suction and the cycle speed at which the breast milk is expressed from the breast. The closer the suction simulated the action of a baby suckling the faster the expression session can be completed. To help this, the controls are close at hand so they controls can be changed to adjust the suction and cycle.

The Affinity Double Electric Breast Pump from Lansinoh has a patented suction design to help prevent the expressing breast milk from coming in contact to the plastic tubing coming from the suction pump. Along with the patented suction design, it also has ComfortFit TM breast flanges to provide a secure and comfortable fit.
The whole system is really easy to use, it is mostly pre-assembled and fits neatly inside a carrying case (not included). All of the controls that are used to adjust the suction strength and cycle speed are easily accessible on the top of the pump station. In case of a situation that the suction has increased to an uncomfortable level there is a one-push (let down) button which lowers the suction strength.
An A/C adapter provides the power for the suction pump when an electrical outlet is available. In the case of no A/C power is available the system comes with a battery power pack. The battery pack holds 6 AA batteries and you can use rechargeable batteries to save on replacing them all the time.
During my research I found 224 reviews with a average rating of 4.5 on Amazon.com for this breast pump and the overwhelming majority of the comments have been of a positive nature. One reviewer was very happy with the quiet and efficient operation of the pump. Many reviewers commented on how easy the cleaning was due to the patented system that keeps the breast milk away from the tubes during the expression session. One reviewer commented that though it was not whisper quiet, it was quiet enough that she was able to nurse her child and use the pump on her other breast at the same time. As you can imagine, not all the comments have been positive. Some reviewers’ comments have not been positive. One reviewer complained that the unit was made of a less than sturdy plastic. Another reviewer was not happy with the number of small parts (replaceable valves) were too small and were easily dropped in the drain. Click here to read more reviews.
In conclusion, the Lansinoh Affinity Double Electric Breast Pump delivers as promised by the manufacturer. The patented valve system that prevent the tubing from coming in contact with the expressed milk sets it apart from any other breast pump in its price range. I would highly recommend this machine based on all of the reviews.
