    Loved it

    published

    I just got my yellow fever vaccination done and i was not allowed to breastfeed my 8 month old baby till she get the vaccination done in the 9th month. The manual pump which i had of another brand was not of any use at all.This product really helped me to get out of the pain caused by not feeding the baby. It is so easy to extract the milk with it as compared to the one i had. Helped me really well.

    Was such a great tool to help with breastfeeding

    published

    This is very comfortable and easy to use. I used it to express after every feed in the first 6 weeks. It easily expressed a full bottle. Both sides take no time at all to express from, so single pump is plenty. I used it at a wedding once and out and about as bub grew, it was easily portable and discrete. It doesn't skip a beat, easy to store and keep clean. Such a great affordable breast pump.

    Cheap and does the job

    published

    This machine is somewhat comfortable . You can adjust the strength of the sick on the side.
    I use this 15 minutes each Breast.
    Very easy to clean and set up.

    If I were to buy another breast pump I would invest and get a double breast pump to save time pumping

    Good little thing

    published

    Great mechine pluged in though it is A little under powered in battery but better than nothing. I found it easy to use and easy to clean. It did take double the amount of time than my one i use for everyday home use one. Nice and compact and easy to transport.

    Perfect and easy to carry

    published

    Easy to use and nicely fits in my handbag! Have used this for both my kids and it still works. On an average 3-4times a day and it's easy to clean as well! I would definitely recommend this to all mothers who would like to continue to express and breastfeed their bubs!

    Bought this after hand pumping for my first one. Tried medulla in hospital but found it didn’t suit me and was super expensive. I tried this after reading reviews and seeing it was half the price of the medulla. It truely lives up to its reputation. Love this pump. It’s double pump also so it really works efficiently. Plus I have read that you tend to extract more with double pumps than if you did one breast at a time. Really recommend this product

    compact and efficient

    published

    Super efficient and compact little pump. Comfortable to use. Easy to wash - I just rinsed it out and popped it into our steriliser with the bottles. The only fiddly bit to clean was the little valve that would get lost quite easily! (But also easily replaceable from our local chemist.) I especially liked it's portability with the option of using batteries to power it. I didn't find it too loud - I wasn't pumping in the same room as bub/when bub was asleep anyway.

    It did the job

    published

    I found this ok but ended up selling it. It was ok and did what it needed it but I found it hurt when it suctioned onto the nipple. It was easy to clean and the manual was straightforward so that was handy. I found it very expensive though for what you got. I personally wouldn't use this one again

    Great pump but noisy

    published

    Super easy to use, clean and store. I used it more with my 2nd child and it was easy to pull out, efficient to pump and pack away. It was just a bit noisy so had to pump in another room at night. Great pump and reasonable. Parts are easy to get too.

    Very loud, okay

    published

    I only feed my baby EBM as we have latching issues. I ha a diana dream dual pump electric hospital grade which is amazing but is very heavy and needs power point so bought the mini because it is small and portable. The power point cord frayed within a week. Using batteries it seems to barely work. How ever it connects to my Diana dream so not a total waste

    Pretty average

    published

    I purchased this second hand from a lady who hadn't had it long.
    She had to get another unit sent to her after the original unit was spurting milk out through the hole in the side of the motor and now that motor has stopped working for me and the new unit ending spurting milk out for me and now is slowly stopping working so I'm back to the good old manual hand pump!
    So pretty crap really considering this brand is highly recommended.

    Good pump but my manual is faster

    published

    I bought this pump second hand in near new condition as I was returning to work and wanted a faster pump. It's slower than my manual Avent pump so I've stopped using it. I didn't find anything wrong with the pump itself (apart from having to buy bigger breast shields) it was just too slow for me.

    Great little pump

    published

    This pump saved us, had trouble feeding so used this to help supplement feeds. Also used this pump at work after returning from leave, only issue was the battery option was very weak and not worth using, was also a little noisy other then that a great unit

    An OK pump

    published

    This pump is okay to use but was a little disappointed to be honest. The pump is extremely noisy, and has to be connected to a power point, if the cord is moved slightly the whole machine stops. The pump also drew milk into the motor making it jam up. In terms of milk collection, yes it does work but it's not great.
    Collects most milk
    Very noisy, faulty cord

    Compact, quick & easy!

    published

    This product was recommended to me by a friend and I too would highly recommend it too! Very compact and has the option of power point or batteries. Collects milk quite quick and very handy to stock pile some milk for my bubs growth spurts. Easy to clean. Is quite noisy but its not like u use it out in public, so was no concern to me.
    Quick & easy to use!
    Quite noisy.

    Gentle and effective!

    published

    I've used this pump since my son was born. First to stockpile some milk in the first weeks and to avoid mastitis. I found the sucking to be very gentle and similar to actual real baby.

    I went back to work early. I haven't found it useful for work as it is noisy and has to be connected to power. I still use it when I express at home.
    Easy to use. Gentle. Expresses milk fast. Allows easy let down due to its gentle suction
    It is a bit noisy. Requires PowerPoint. Mine does not take batteries

    Noisy and temperamental

    published

    So noisy! Cant use it at night in bed as the noise wakes my 2 year old down the other end of the hallway. Also the electric cord is crap! You move slightly and the cord moves with you and depending on the angle the machine completely stops, have to wiggle the cord around until it starts again. Hard to wash as you cant get to the inside of the pump. Wouldn't recommend the mini to anyone

    Expensive considering the crap quality

    Not impressed

    published

    Initial thoughts -negative points - painful, had to buy another shield which didn't solve pain issues. Hard plastic shield very uncomfortable; kept getting little minuscule nipple blister which causes blocked ducts; stopped sucking after 6 mth use after warranty expired... Useless . Positives were that the milk sucked out quickly was expressed quickly.
    Quick to milk
    Lots of pain, stopped working after warranty expired. Uncomfortable shields

    How do i charge this breast pump...its sounds so flat and i have no idea how to charge it or knw if it is charging?

    I'm not aware of it being chargeable. You keep it plugged in for constant power, or you place batteries inside for cordless/travel use and replace batteries when they are flat.

    Hi Keenan
    The mini electric cannot be charged. It can be used on mains power and is also battery operated.

    I personally have not had to do this but I went to the medela website and they say they make 5 different size shields. Hope this helps :)
