In what is sure to be a lifesaver for time-strapped new moms, the Scranton-based company Breastco Pneumatics has developed a breast pump capable of draining a full gallon of milk…in under three minutes!
The new Lactinator 8000 is the first of its kind in that it’s sole purpose is to expedite the lactation process, allowing busy moms the ability to get on with their day.
“Our research showed that while most moms did want to provide their children with the best possible source of nutrition, some relied on formulas [which many consider to be the epitome of lazy, unloving mothers], based on the time it takes to properly pump,” said Breastco spokesman David Anthony. “Now, women have the best of both worlds.”
According to the company website, the pump is so powerful, a woman needn’t even be lactating in order to have her milk drained, although a Breastco representative strongly advised against this.
The pump is only available on the Breastco website, and retails for just under $17,000.
