"Easy and effective…"
I have been using this daily for 3 weeks now. I was scared to use a breast-pump for the first time. I have to pump in order to build a bank of milk for an operation I am due. I am managing easily with this and get 5 ounces in about 10 minutes.The function which allows you to mimic the baby's initial sucking never fails to trigger my let-down quickly. It is comfortable and simple to put together. The kit comes with a special teat which is supposed to be very close to the breast for exclusively breastfed babies- and this worked a treat. My baby who at nearly 5 months had no experience of a bottle was able to drink easily.
Overall, an ideal pump for a mother who needs to pump but does not wish to do it long term (I would get an electric one for convenience in this case) and does not want to interfere with the breastfeeding relationship.Read moreLess
Would recommend, its really easy and i got a couple of oz in a few mins. Luckly wasn't put off by another make where I got nothing out!! Very simple to put together, easy instructions and easy to clean. Strongly recommend. good product for the price.Read moreLess
If you want a manual pump for occasional expressing, I can recommend the medela. The gentle small pump gets the flow going and then use the main pump. Efficient I thought too. Comfy and I've been using it for three months.Read moreLess

"I have used this pump for a week. I found…"
I have used this pump for a week. I found it easy to use and efficient, however the breastshield started changing colour and going yellow within 3-4 days and the plastic became slightly misshapen. After a week it lost suction. We took it apart and followed the troubleshooting guide, but could not get it going again.Read moreLess
