I purchased this pump after using 2 other branded pumps - and this has so far been the best! I do not pump full time, I require a pump to manage an over supply, so I can't speak from the experience of someone who uses a pump multiple times a day, but it's perfect for me!
I had a bad experience with another brand of pump, so I really did my research before committing to buy an Ardo. I contacted the ABA, a retailer (Nursing Angel) and Ardo themselves.
I found out that Ardo is now endorsed by the ABA and is available in some areas as a hire pum...
A Breastfeeding Essential!
Extremely happy with the ARDO pump. It is super quite, very easy & comfortable to use, & cleaning is a breeze - love the microwave sterilising bags. I don't use it every day because my little one is predominately breastfed, but it works a treat when I do. My partner enjoys offering our babe a bottle of expressed goodness. Happily recommend it to others.

What a lifesaver!
As a first time mom, I was unsure to purchase a pump, especially because it is quite a hefty buy.
I first came across Ardo at the Baby Expo and was very impressed with the system: closed system, minimal parts to clean compared to others, flexibility to go portable, silent, adjustable suction strength and frequency.
I am happy with my Ardo, it helped me establish my milk, gave me a little bit of a break from constant sucking by bub. It was very comfortable, easy to use.
I bought it from ardo.com.au and the customer service was great. The manager called me to ensure that I got the suitable attachments.
Such a great and efficient pump!
I was recommended this pump by my lactation consultant. It was a great alternative to the hospital grade pumps and so much more portable.
It was still nice and powerful and helped me express for my twins while I had issues getting them to latch.
I expressed around 2L a day on this little gem!
It was comfy, easy to clean and I have recommended it to other Mummas in my community.
Occasionally I experienced 'glitches' where the pump would have an error but it was corrected by turning the unit off and on again.
All together I was really happy with it and used it until my twins weaned at 1 year old.
The Ardo hand pump has literally saved me a few times in the last few months.
My son in 7 months old and has many allergies.
I was admitted to hospital for tests and due to the medications, I couldn't breastfeed for a day. My son had never had a bottle before and I hadn't need to express. Ardo's hand pump was amazing. Easy to use (so easy my hubby can put it together, now that's saying something!), super easy to clean (microwaveable sterilising bags are actually indescribable), it's efficient and comfortable.
Most recently, I've been...struck down with the dreaded gastro bug and my little one has gone to stay with his grandparents. My Ardo hand pump has been my best friend aiding me in working to keep up my supply and provide my son with expressed milk so he can continue with breast milk. Ardo has taken so much stress away from an anxious Mama in many situations in the last 7 months. I can't recommend them higher and I'm so grateful. M x
It is an awesome brest pump which is quiet and reliable. The mechanisms are really easy to use and moreover its really easy to clean. The 10 minutes expressing gives more than sufficient milk for my baby. Compared to the brest pumps at the hospital, its easefulness, quietness and portability makes me recommand the product to all my friends.
Great double pump
A great closed system breast pump. Easy to switch between single and double ( plus manual ). Lots of accessories available. Flange sizes to fit everyone and optional massage insert. Easy to make individual pumping session that mimics baby. Easy cleaning and most bits can go in dishwasher, the calypso on the go is perfect for pumping at work too
I am using the calypso daily and in the beginning 8 times a day post every breastfeed. I use it for approximately 15 mins (double pumping) an expression. It is relatively comfortable. Easy to clean the white wedge it a little fiddly. I would buy it again due the the fact it is so quite.
I would suggest to make the power cord longer as it is rather short and add in a rechargeable battery as this would of been a life saver for me.

Questions & Answers
Bought the calypso only 3 months ago and suddenly broke down today with red light popping up? None of my accessories are broken or torn.. and I noted it seems to have been lacking the same level of efficiency as before in the last few days . I have been using it it abt 6-8 times a day and been fine till past few days and today totally gone!
