What does the WHO Code mean?

The WHO Code on the marketing of mother’s milk substitutes protects and supports breastfeeding. The Code determines how mother’s milk substitutes may be marketed without endangering the practice of breastfeeding.The International Code makes reference to each product which is marketed as a partial or total replacement for mother’s milk, including feeding bottles and teats. The Code does not ban the sale of such products but rather defines marketing methods and the way in which businesses operate. (International Code:Article 2). The intention is, amongst other things, to suppress advertising or other forms of merchandising to the general public (Article 5.1).

What does the WHO Code mean for Ardo?

Taking into account the fact that teats may have a negative effect on the duration of breast feeding. Currently the subject of the WHO Code on mother’s milk substitutes is under intense discussion amongst experts in the field, in conjunction with producers of breastfeeding products. We wish to declare unequivocally – as a matter of company policy – that Ardo is completely committed to observing absolutely each and every WHO Code.

Safe, Secure, Sealed

All Ardo breastpumps include pumpsets that have a Closed System (Vacuum Seal Technology)

The silicone membrane pot integrated into the pumpset is at the heart of our “Vacuum Seal” technology.

This technology ensures that there is a total barrier between the breastmilk and any pathogenic agents. “Vacuum Seal” guarantees protection of the breast, breast milk and the breastpump against contamination.

There is no danger of cross contamination, even when Ardo breastpumps are being used by several mums, for example when being shared in a hospital environment.

Protects mum, milk and baby.

Created for YOU

A good product adapts to you. Every mum is individual, every mother has different personal needs.

That’s why our philosophy of always giving you the maximum in individuality, stands behind every Ardo product.

This means that you can:

  • Always select the individual breast shell which suits you best, depending on the changing size and shape of your breasts and nipples while you are breastfeeding.
  • Use Ardo electric breastpumps  as either a single – or double pump.
  • Express your precious breast milk directly into an Ardo Easy Freeze Milk Storage bag. After expressing, store the breast milk or freeze it in the Easy Freeze Bag.
  • Convert your pumpset into an Ardo Amaryll manual breast pump simply and cost-effectively, with the Ardo Kombikit.
  • Quickly sterilise your pumpsets in the microwave using Easy Clean microwave bags.
  • Relieve sore nipples with 100% pure lanolin Gold Cream, which is completely safe to keep on when breastfeeding
