Great product

Love this breast pump. Definitely not the cheapest on the market but I like that I didn’t have to work out cup size etc before purchasing - I just attach and go.

It comes in a really handy zip up bag with all the travel lids to the parts.

The pump itself is small and compact, easy to essemble all the parts.

Comfortable to use with different strength settings.

Only down side was I wished it came with extra parts and bottles. I was having to express after every feed for the first week and a half (8 feeds a day/night), when you’re only getting 3 hours between feeds (and an hour to an hour an a half is taken up by feeding and settling baby to bed) time is of the essence and having to clean all the parts every feed is time consuming and annoying. We went out after day 2 and purchased extra bottles so we could store milk in 1 or two bottles, and pump into the spare bottles. We couldn’t find where to buy the other pump parts though so we could have multiple kits to use through the night instead of having to stop and wash every time.

Other than that it’s been a great product

I love this pump!!

My baby is four months old and I have had to express every three hours since giving birth due to latching problems. I have been through three pumps and have spent close to $1000 on pumps and this is by far the best!! I had some very big issues with medela around their pumps suction not working properly even after getting it all fixed. It got to the point where my supply has dramatically dropped and I had to give my baby formula because I wasn't producing enough milk. I changed brands and got this double head pump and it is AMAZING. it is so quiet, very comfortable, the suction is great!! I have not had a single problem with the valves! And my supply has gone up and I am no longer having to give my little girl formula. I am so happy with this pump and I'll be recommending your brand and this pump to everyone!

Great unit!

I really liked this product. Having the dual heads made the process much quicker and more efficient. I like the variable suction levels and the fact you can get the accessories for manual use if needed. Washing up the little pieces was a bit of a pain by that comes with the territory of a breast pump I think.

Thanks for the kind words, Katie. It's nice to hear the breast pump is serving you well. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Great

Very easy to set up and use, and having the double for one baby makes it easier to do feed times when baby sat.
Takes about 10mintures to fill 2 bottles at 80mls easy to take apart and wash with hot soapy water and ready to go again.
Absolutely worth the price and can even fit in top so you can nap and express at once

Hi Tamara. Good to hear you've had a positive experience with the Comfort breastpump. :-) We can imagine sneaking in a nap when expressing is a nice bonus. If there's ever anything we can do for you, please don't hesitate to get in contact with us. We're available 24/7 on both Facebook and Twitter (@PhilipsCare). Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Gets the job done

I love that the suction strength is adjustable because another brand I used really hurt my nipples. The suction performance is good - it only takes me 10 - 15 minutes to express the milk. While considerably less trouble than manual pumping, it is uncomfortable to double pump as you need to sit there holding two cups up to your boobs, however this applies to all double pumps. The cup is made up of any components which creates a bit more work when cleaning and sterilising them, but this isn't a big deal.


Such a help with my preemie baby

This breast pump is really great ans doesnt recieve the positive feedback it deserves, I bought all avent natural bottles whilst I was pregnant and then my daughter was born 6 weeks early and needed expressed milk, I used this pump to exclusively espress (at least 5 pumps a day) from when she was 3 weeks and came home from the hospital until she was 8 months old and it never missed a beat and never lost suction. It's so comfortbale and the let down sucking at the begining is great for encouraging let down. Would really recommend this pump

Hello Jess, thanks so much for your review! We're very happy to hear the breast pump has been such a big help during the exciting time when your newborn arrived. All the best for you and your family. :-) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

not with batteries

Generally this is not too bad but I have never tried other brands so I can’t make too much comparison. What surprised me most was the pump must be powered with the plug. It doesn’t mean that you can’t bring it out at all though, if you find a nursery room that provides you a plug, you can still take it out, but well you know, it comes with a very high quality bag so that you can bring it out and it proved that Avent expect mums use it not only at homes. Another problem is the plastic accessories, there is a thing to separate the milk from the pump and help creating suction, but it became lose after a few times you it. If it is not tightly covering, air leaks from it and the pump cannot work properly. And one more thing, but I think it is my own problem, I found it hard to use the two pumps at the same time cos normally you are advised to do some massage while you are pumping, then you can express more milk. At the end I found that I only need a single pump instead of a double one.

Hi Kathy, thank you for sharing your honest experiences here. We appreciate you taking the time to write it down, as it's valuable feedback for us that helps to improve our products. By the way, we also have a manual breast pump, which you can use without a plug. As for the leakage you describe, this isn't supposed to happen so this might still be resolved. Therefore, I'd like to ask you to reach out to us by phone. Our Customer Care team would be happy to assist you with this issue. You can reach us at (AU) 1300 363 391 and (NZ) 0800 658 224. Thanks in advance! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Comfortable and effective

A good quality pump that I am able to pump quite a substantial amount with. I rarely use it as a double as it is a little awkward to manage both at once and I imagine that the breast pads wouldn’t suit all sizes. It is a little noisy and bulky, but great for private use within the home

Hi Danielle, thank you for your kind words. We're happy to hear our Philips Avent Comfort Double Electric is serving you well. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

Not worth the money, choose another brand

Comfortable to use
I use this once a day everyday at nights whilst my baby sleeps.

After using this for 3 months once a day everyday the rubber seals have deteriorated. I was given 2 diaphragm's in the box which split and pump valve which no longer pushes the milk into the bottle! I now have to turn the machine off every couple minutes and release suction from boob which drops the milk into the bottle and turn on again to keep pumping.

I had Followed the Cleaning instructions closely and storing out of the harmful rays of the sun and i just think they should be lasting longer then that.

Once the diaphragm's split the milk went up into the motor and is now making funny noises.

I have contacted philips and they have stated the consumable parts are not covered under the manufacturers warranty.

sadly disappointed

Great customer service

I got it via eBay and paid by PayPal. No problem using it at all and it very reliable n gentle. But I noticed it would shut it self down automatically, so I emailed customer service and they r super helpful, I just email them my receipt from PayPal and they sent me a new one right away!

Hi there, Glad to hear you're such a fan of the product! And of the customer service. :) We're happy only if our customers are. Wishing you a pleasant evening. Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

Ok pump

This pump is comfortable to use but not as efficient as my medela symphony. It is quite noisy as well. I have found that one side of the pump works more efficiently than the other side, it seems to almost be broken on one side. There's also a lot of parts to clean, generally not a great pump.

Waste of money

I have been through two of these in the past month! After suffering 3rd degree burns on my stomach after my son was born i had to switch to pumping as having him on my stomach was painful, i chose this pump thinking that you were a good brand, how wrong i was. First one lost suction which resulted in loss of milk supply as i had to wait for the long weekend to pass before being able to exchange, so thinking this was a one off problem i exchange it for another one which tonight 3hours after working perfectly has just shut off and will not turn on at all! What am i ment to do at 9pm at night? Shops are closed in regional qld and my son hates formula so tonight he will suffer. I wouldn't recommend this brand to anyone, pumps are terrible and their bottles leak from the teat

Best pump I've ever used

Love this product never have I ever produced so much milk so comfortably it's unlike the cheap manual versions. This works I was shocked that I had any milk in the bottles because I didn't feel a thing you can vary the sucking to what is comfortable for you which is so important. It's very easy to pull apart and clean. The carry bag makes it easy to carry but I always find it a lot more convenient to do at home as with all pumps it's important to be comfortable. I plan on having another baby so I will not seem or give away this product however I will recommend it to all who can afford it.

Just let us know when you're in need of any assistance. We'd be happy to help. :-) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Not what i expected

I bought the breast pump before i gave birth and i have tried to use it four times now and every time i try i end up with sore cracked and bleeding nipples i have even tried the bigger size cushions but i still have the same problem. I make sure i centre my nipple every time but still doesnt help. So far by using this product i have damaged both breast and now have trouble breastfeeding in general due to the pain. Not very impressed so far

Hi Amanda, that doesn't sound good and we take a situation like this very seriously. We just sent you a private message asking for your contact details. We like to get in touch and see how we can help. We would like to hear from you. Kind regards, The Philips Australia TeamAfter almost two months i was never contacted by the company after a private message asking for contact details as its apparently taken very seriously.... I have not used the pump in this time either as i don't wish to go through the nightmare of breastfeeding with damaged, cracked and bleeding nipplesHi Amanda, Our apologies. We now see your private message including your personal details. We guess this message must have been slipped through. We're sorry to keep you waiting. The details have been forwarded to our relevant colleagues. Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

Close to perfect

This pump has been a life saver. The comfort shields are indeed very comfortable and i can lean back in a chair while pumping. I bought the large size comfort shields as well. The suctions modes are just the ones that i need, simple to use and i am glad there arent too many buttons to experiment with. The letdown is quick as well. Able to pump around 100 ml in 10 mins on a single side, saving me time.
Cleaning is a breeze as its easy to reach every part of it using avent bottle brush.
I wish it came with rechargeable battery. Its also quite noisy but i dont mind realising how comfortable it is for exclusive pumping.

Hi Alwyna. Thank you for your review. It means a lot to us to read that this breast pump works so well for you. If you ever have any questions about it, you know where to find us. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Good quality and a Life saver!!!!!!

Bought this product after learning that it's much easier to express and store for those late nights, so the hubby can get up:). Good quality.. I researched a lot on electric breast pumps as I've read some bad reviews... Found an online pharmacy that had a live chat and they were absolutely fantastic, and they were by far the cheapest. So for those that want a electric pump,,,,, Avent is the way to go... Heads up look around as prices vary.... The cheapest I found at the time was from this online pharmacy..... Ureeka.com.au....

Hello Cindi. We are happy to read that you like the Avent breast pump this much. Makes us feel proud. And we can imagine that it must be convenient to let your husband do the feeding right?! ;) Thanks for the kind words and for submitting your review. Have a good one today.

Works absolutely well

I have been using this product and it is fabulous. Though it is loud I have resolved the issue by burying it under a pillow when in use. It is easy to use and I even take it on trips using batteries. I exclusively express and brestfeed my baby and it has been great.

Hello Mon, Thank you for taking the time to write this review, it’s great to see the pump is working so well for you. It’s also good to see you found a way to make it less noisy, although we understand it shouldn't have to come to such a workaround. We’d like to thank you for the feedback and hope you’ll keep enjoying it for as long as you’re using it. :) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Ok - when it works

I too have had trouble with the suction - sometimes working sometimes not, very frustrating. At first I though I had one breast that just wasn't producing as much milk as the other until I worked out it was the pump. I called the company and they suggested I remove the padding - this helped a little bit but still not how I think it should be. For what I paid for it, I was expecting it to be better.

Hello Orela, thanks for your valuable feedback and sorry to hear that the product didn't meet up to your expectations.

Better than expected

It worked better than expected. I was hiring a medela which I was used to and loved. The pump is loud but really not that bad. They all make noise. The parts can be taken off and washed, however, can become tedious to do each time. It is comfortable and I can sit in any position I like and not have to sit forward on the chair. You can use the machine with one pump as well. I like the travel bag it comes in - bottles and breast pads included!

Thanks for your kind words ! So further to my post above - 1 Month after use one side stopped working. I called up Philips Avent and they said that the problem was likely the motor. They gave me a number to quote and I had to email them that reference number plus the copy of tax invoice. They sent a new motor out about 5 days later. Overall, they were good with this. But would have liked an email back to indicate that they were processing it or to let me know approximately when a replacement would arrive.Thank you for your feedback Esty. We're glad to hear everything got resolved in the end. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us via 1300 363 391. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

No suction

I have trouble with suction on this machine it sometimes works sometimes doesn't I have a lot of milk in my supply I need to express but the way this machine works it doesn't allow me to empty my breasts. I am very disappointed. When it does work it gets the milk out quick but that is rare. Don't rely on this machine to get the milk out in time before heading out give yourself a day to fill a bottle. Big thumbs down
