The Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump was the first breast pump that I purchased, followed by the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump. I had reviewed information on a number of breast pumps and the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump seemed like it would be a good fit for me. After using it and the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump over the last few months, I want to share my review and thoughts on it.
Before we dive into the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump Review, I just wanted to mention two things:
- I’m not a lactation consultant. I’m just a new mom who is sharing her own personal experience and review. If you are experiencing issues when it comes to breastfeeding or pumping, reach out to your doctor or a health care professional.
- However you choose to feed your baby is your choice and I am not implying any shame or glorification over breastfeeding, pumping, or formula feeding. This is simply a review of a breast pump I have been using and if you’re looking for a breast pump then I hope this review helps you.

Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump Features
The Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump features 3 pumping styles, 8 suction levels, and 2-phase technology with letdown and expression modes.
When you first turn on your Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump, it’ll automatically start with a letdown mode which will continue for two minutes before switching to the expression mode. You can either use this automated setting or change the mode at any time by simply pressing the expression button.
Can You Pump Cordlessly?
Yes, to an extent. You can use 6 AA batteries in your Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump rather than plugging it in during use.
However, this does not make it as convenient to move around with as you may think. The pump itself is quite large and you need to carry it around if you plan on moving about. Instead of this plug-free option giving you the freedom to move around, I would say it gives you the freedom to pump wherever you need to.
While this is convenient for pumping while traveling or if you need to pump somewhere that you won’t have access to a plug, you are still somewhat stuck in one spot while you’re pumping.
Assembling, Application & Use
Assembling this breast pump is very easy. While it looks complicated when you first unbox all the pieces for this breast pump, it is actually very quick and simple to put together.
Putting the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump on is very easy. You do need a pumping bra so that the pump is held properly in place, but aside from that, actually putting the pump on is very easy. I’ve also found that this pump doesn’t seem to leak so I’ve never used this pump and lost any milk that I’ve pumped. This is something that I have experienced with the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump.
Once on, you simply tap the power button, and the letdown mode will automatically start and continue on for 2 minutes before switching to the expression mode. You can customize the letdown and expression modes by increasing or decreasing the suction level. There are 8 levels of suction to choose between.
The Flange On The Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump
The Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump comes with 25mm flanges. You may find that you need a different size flange.
The Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump has four different ComfortFit Breast Pump Flange sizes but if they don’t have the size you’re looking for then you can also find additional size options on Amazon. These are not the same brand but they are compatible with your Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump.
Cleaning the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump
Cleaning the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump is very easy, though there are more parts to clean than with the Momcozy S12 Pro Breast Pump. I recommend reading the instruction manual and watching the Lansinoh Cleaning Guide Video to see how to best care for and clean your pump.
Let’s Talk About the Cost
The Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump is quite reasonably priced at $129.97 CAD. In comparison to most other pumps on the market, it is quite a bit more affordable.
Replacement Items For The Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump
Like all breast pumps, you will need to replace certain parts regularly. One thing I was surprised by though was how quickly I needed to replace the tubing on this pump. I found small holes in the tubing within the first week or two of use and so I needed to invest in replacements and back-ups.
While it was frustrating to have to replace pieces so early on, I was happy to learn how easily accessible they were and how affordable they were. I ordered my replacement tubing on Amazon, but you can also buy replacement parts from Lansinoh directly.
I would say that there are some big pros to the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump. The options for letdown, expression, and various suction levels are all great. The pump is comfortable to wear, easy to put on, and it works really well.
Since it is very easy to put on and gets a good seal, I’ve found it quite reliable and not had any issues with leaking. Leakage is really frustrating, and it is something I have experienced with the Momcozy S12 Pro Wearable Breast Pump so the fact that I have not experienced it with the Lansinoh SignaturePro Double Electric Breast Pump is a very big point in the pro column. Spending 15-20 minutes pumping only to lose half of the pumped milk is very frustrating.
I also do like that it has both the option to be used plugged in or with batteries. I never have to worry that the batteries run out, or that I haven’t charged this pump because if worse comes to worst, I can just plug it in and use it as usual.
I am quite happy with it, but there are a few things I don’t love about it. The first is that it isn’t a pump you can be very mobile in. With such limited time to get things done, I try to multitask as much as possible and unfortunately, you just cannot really multitask while wearing this breast pump. There have been times were I’ve been counting down the minutes til the end of my pumping sessions so that I can quickly do the dishes, put on some laundry, etc. before my son wakes up. This is why I ended up investing in a hands-free pump. I realized I needed something that allowed me to move around more freely so I could get more done. I found that spending 15-20 minutes multiple times a day in one place hinders my productivity around the house.
The second issue I’ve found with this pump is that it’s a bit large. When I began working again and needed to pump while I worked, I found it quite difficult to do. It is a large pump and typing on my computer while pumping proved to not be totally possible. I had thought this would be how I could multitask while wearing this pump but found that it was just too in the way to type while I pumped.
Overall, I found this to be a good breast pump and I am glad I have it, but I am not sure I would purchase it again. I like to be able to move around and multitask, and this pump doesn’t work well for that. If you’re thinking of investing in this pump, I would just recommend that you consider whether you mind staying in one spot while you’re pumping. If you don’t mind then you may love this pump.
