Nuk Jolie breast pump

I've got the Avent manual breast pump, which I used very successfully with dd1. However, it doesn't fit the NUK bottles I've bought dd2. Expressed milk transferred between bottles always smelt funny with dd1 even though it was stored correctly. DH wondered if transferring it from the Avent pump bottle into the bottles we used to feed dd1 with (Dr Brown) was somehow to blame.

Can anyone tell me if the jolie pump is any good and if they've had the same experience with breast milk smelling 'off' after being expressed.

It may be the lipase in your milk making it smell funny and fast of soap. You can scald the milk before storing which stops this. Have a look at Kellymom for the full details.

I've got the Jolie breast pump and I preferred the Avent, the Jolie has a funny beak shape which doesn't sit very well on my breast, plus the hood that attaches to the lever and produces the vacuum is huge and a dark colour, so it is very difficult to see the milk flow. You really need to twist your neck to see if the milk is already coming. Plus, I found the Avent was easier to clean, less bits. As for efficacy, it is just as efficient as the Avent.

As McBaby said, the smell will be due to the lipase which is naturally present in breast milk and has nothing to due with the pump.

Thanks! Think I'll stick with the Avent pump in that case. It's no hassle to transfer a tiny bottle of milk into another tiny bottle!

Interesting about the lipase too. I've had a read up on kellymom.
