We've been asked by Philips Avent to find 20 Mumsnetters who are currently feeding their child breastmilk to try out their brand new "Comfort Electric Breastpump" - RRP £115 – this will be sold via Mothercare from January before becoming available at a wider selection of retailers later on.

Philips says "Extensive research shows us that comfortable positioning is crucial in helping mums express milk more easily. The Philips AVENT Comfort breast pump is the only pump that allows mums to express in a more relaxing, reclined position, preventing backache caused by leaning forward through its ergonomic design. The Comfort breast pump is intuitively easy to use and features an innovative, active massage cushion which feels warm and natural on the breast. Its soft silicone petals gently massage the breast to stimulate the let-down reflex, encouraging milk flow and supply.

"The Philips AVENT Comfort electric breast pump is equipped with three simple settings and a stimulation mode so you can choose your most comfortable milk flow".

"Each feature of the Comfort breast pump is designed to encourage mum to feed breastmilk to her child for longer whilst making the whole experience easier and more comfortable".

Selected testers will need to try the pump for a couple of weeks and then to add feedback to a thread on Mumsnet. We'd also want you to add a review to the breastpump review area on MN.

The product test is open to all UK MNers who are currently breastfeeding or expressing for a baby/ child - the product will be sent out in the next week or so. You will be able to keep the pump after adding your feedback.

If you'd like to take part and you can add feedback as required please sign up here and we will be in touch with selected testers asap.

thanks, MNHQ

Currently sat here expressing for my DD. I'll happily take part and provide necessary reviews.

dannyboyle Mon 26-Nov-12 15:53:10

done off my phone so hopefully worked. Let me know if not as would very happily help. Neither child has latched on so expressing is all I know!

ChocolateCoins Mon 26-Nov-12 15:57:51

Really hope I get picked for this!

HeffalumpsAndWoozles Mon 26-Nov-12 16:01:24

Done. Would love to get picked for this, I hated expressing with DD1 I found my pump uncomfortable and a bit of a faff, it would be great to actually get the hang of it now for DD2.

PeahenTailFeathers Mon 26-Nov-12 16:04:52

Done smile.

I find my manual pump all but useless; I have to work but would love DD to have expressed milk rather than formula.

MimsyBorogroves Mon 26-Nov-12 16:29:28

Done. Would love to be able to express efficiently so that I can actually go out! It's been nearly a year...

stargirl1701 Mon 26-Nov-12 16:29:57

I am about to start relactation on Wed. I am hiring an electric pump and will be pumping frequently everyday. I would be happy to take part.

AmandinePoulain Mon 26-Nov-12 16:34:00

I'm desperate to replace my old Medela hand held pump that sounds like a jet engine!

mummysmellsofsick Mon 26-Nov-12 16:34:31

Done. I'd love to be able to recline whilst expressing

BoysAndGhouls Mon 26-Nov-12 17:00:49

Am in need of a pump so yes please, i would love this, I did try a hospital electric pump and felt a bit like a milk factory but it was fab to use. :-)

Penguinbeaver Mon 26-Nov-12 17:07:31

IceNoSlice Mon 26-Nov-12 17:18:49

TroubleAndFyfe Mon 26-Nov-12 18:06:38

Done. Pick me, pick me! grin

ScaredySquirrel Mon 26-Nov-12 18:17:49

Please pick me! I've recently gone back to work and am having all kinds of angst about expressing at work. Maybe this pump will make the whole process easier, less stressful and more comfortable?

also have tried lots of other breast pumps in the past so have lots to compare to.

blonderthanred Mon 26-Nov-12 18:39:59

I'd love to test this, DS (1mo) has been EBF so far and I am looking forward to expressing so that DH can be involved in feeding (and I can get more sleep!)

Wommer Mon 26-Nov-12 18:40:33

Done Fromm phone - hopefully has worked? Am back at work full time and expressing about 20 oz a day - this would be a LIFE saver!

Whatevertheweather Mon 26-Nov-12 18:40:47

Ooh so hope I'm picked - have to go back to work when dd is 6 months old and would love to express for her. Currently in hospital with her as she has bronchiolitis and is being tube fed so expressing using hospital electric pump atm and am amazed at how much comes out so quickly!

readyforno2 Mon 26-Nov-12 18:47:58

Done. Would love an electric pump!!

Rachog Mon 26-Nov-12 18:55:54

Pick me, pick me.

Would love to be express when I return to work so ds can have expressed milk rather than formula.

Pinkpiglet Mon 26-Nov-12 19:24:23

I would love to test this pump as I return to work soon and my baby won't take formula.

IShallCallYouSquishy Mon 26-Nov-12 19:39:03

Done! Would love to be able to express enough to give my DD EBM feeds so I know she's getting enough and then hopefully put on some weight sad

Kveta Mon 26-Nov-12 19:39:42
