I was really looking forward to my haakaa as i was over wasting milk. And in fac tg its great in the aspect that its not going to A breast pad. But i specifically bought the gen 3 for extra suction just to have it come off as soon as going on! Its horrible. I spend so nuch time trying to get it to stick on i lose half of my let down anyways! Not to mention that if ita tilted slightly it spills everywhere! Im so disappointed i wasted so much money on it

Probably the best baby related product
This pump has halved my anxiety with having a newborn. It attaches so easily, isn't too big or awkward to attach while feeding and works SO MUCH BETTER than I expected.
I would suggest just dont suction it on too hard for too long or you will swell and then baby cant latch as well. Just enough suction be comfortable and secure. Its not sucking the milk out, but gently encouraging it to flow while you feed, and collecting what you would have otherwise have lost.
Its been amazing for catching just 1 or 2ml of extra colostrum for topping up in ...

Daughter loves it
Anything that came make a new mum's life easier deserves a top review. This product is exactly as it is described and shipping was fast! I ordered it the week before my granddaughter was born and it arrived while she was in hospital. Thank you

So easy to use I could just go on and on about this product! I use it at least every morning while bubs is feeding on the other side, it's hands free and so comfortable! Simply amazing, I wish I knew about it earlier!

Can’t live without it
Honestly the best thing I bought for breast feeding. I stopped using my $300 medela straight away as this pumped so much milk for me I needed nothing else!! I recommend this to all my pregnant friends and everyone says it’s a game changer

Convenient, portable & easy to keep clean.
What I loved about my Haakaa was it wasn't such a huge process to clean it. I initially started off using a hospital grade pump which just felt like another chore as a first time mum. I hated pumping so I didn't do it. Then a friend of mine told me how awesome this product was and you just attach it to the other side whilst you are breastfeeding! I couldn't believe how much milk it was catching and I could do it all at the same time! One less thing for me to have to worry about. The only issue was I didn't find it easy to express with this when not breastfeeding so when my little one was a bit older and I got some spare time back I started using the hospital grade pump again for 10 minutes a day.

Better than Spectra for me
Love my haakaa because
- pumps three times as much (140mls) as spectra in 24hrs
- able to use passively while breastfeeding
- can sleep instead of pumping with spectra
- fits my B cups/petite frame easily

Brought this "must have " to use while nursing my 3 week old bub.. well last night I wound up in emergency with mastitis. Instead of having a red mark on my skin I have a red ring. Discussed with the doctor how it isn't my hospital breast pump as the flange doesn't sit where the mark is.. thismorning while nursing I yelled out to my partner to grab my haakaa for me and as he attached it to my breast he noticed that it infact does match up with the red ring!
Now I'm not saying don't use it, it simply didn't work for me.. many, many women sing ...

This pump has been really great. Easy and comfortable to use, portable so great for travel and really effective...I’m able to pump more than with my electric pump and much quicker and easier. Very easy to wash and sterilise also.

I love this! Very convenient!
I brought the second gen that comes with a lid and a suction part in the bottom for spillage. This has been a lifesaver! I've recently been building up a stash for when I return to work. This has also given me relief when I've woken up with engorgement resulting in 150mls as picture below! I can't rave about this enough!

Perfect manual breast pump
This is the best pump. Period.
The price, the ease of use... awesome is the word.
I use it for expressing or just catch my letdowns. Works like magic.
The product itself doesn’t come with a cover - you have to buy it separately but that’s not an issue.

No brainer. Such a time saver.
Somebody gave this to me and it’s the best. Just pop in on while you’re feeding the other side and it collects the leakage but also pumps for you building up some handy little milk storage.
This product saved my milk supply. It is so handy and efficient. It is great to have attached to the other breast while you feed from one. Used it a lot to help clear blocked ducts without causing over supply issues.

Amazing! Even at 9 months post partum
Purchased and used for the first time when my baby was 9 months old. Obviously breastfeeding is well established now and I don’t find I leak very much but wanting to try my baby more regularly with a bottle (which she currently won’t take) before returning to work soon.
Expressing after feeds is annoying and time consuming, so thought I’d give this a go to try and steadily build up as stash of breastmilk. Well I’ve used it twice today already, it’s so easy to just grab and pop on whilst feeding from the other side, and rinses quickly sfterwards. Very happy to easily get 30mls without any effort, I thought maybe I’d only get a dribble! Very pleased with my purchase, should easily have a bottle by the end of the day.

Easy and worth trying before pumping
Before having my baby, I was tossing up whether I wanted to pump if I was able to breastfeed. I came across the Haakaa and decided that I would try it out first before pumping and committing expense and effort into electric pump. I really liked the idea of not messing with natural supply - plus, I figure there is enough to do with a new baby rather than throwing in pumping and the hassle that comes with cleaning, sterilising electric pumps.
I really like the Haakaa and I definitely think it is worth trying out before committing to a pumping...schedule. With the Haakaa I just attach to the opposite breast that my daughter is feeding from to capture any excess milk. I wouldn't say I have an excess or abundant supply probably just average - but with this I was able to capture about 100ml a day (I would not use this for night feeds as it is a little extra effort). You can also give it a squeeze to encourage more flow but the 100ml ended up being more than I really need anyway. I now just do this on the lead up to weekend so there's a spare bottle or two in the fridge in case I am out and about without my daughter. It is an fairly inexpensive product and the best part is it is easy to clean and sterilise as it is just one silicone unit - and I'm pretty sure it can be put through the dishwasher (I do anyway!). I definitely recommend trying the Haakaa if you are on the fence about regular pumping.

Questions & Answers
I feed my baby on both sides...how does the pump work? Do i use it on the opposite breast and then swap sides when baby swaps breats?
Also, will i still have enough milk in the 2nd breast when baby swap sides to complete for feed?
I’m trying to decide between the 100ml and the 150ml (the latter being a new addition to their range). I’m only a smaller busted woman (still just a B cup at the end of my pregnancy) but leaking and expressing colostrum just fine. Would 150ml tend to fall off the breast and just be unnecessary or do some of you wish your 100 was bigger?
Can it be used without bub feeding on the other breast?
Yes I have used it when Bub started sleeping all night. I woke up and had to express just to have a bit of Releif.
