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
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.
Perfect and easy to carry
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!
Love love love
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
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
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
Very loud, okay
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
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
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.
I have used loads of breast pumps. I had twin daughters and one had to had heart surgery, and I ended up expressing for about 6 months solid. This pump is great. I find it easy to use. The battery operation is a great option if needed too. It can be noisy, but its not too bad in comparison with other electric pumps. I have tried manual pumps and they just didn't work for me.
What i really love about this pump is that there arn't a lot of bits to it. I had a manual pump, and there were so many parts it took me forever to pull it apart to clean...
An OK pump
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!
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!
Gentle and effective!
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
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
Good for travel
I got this pump in a hurry about 2 months ago after my old one suddenly died on me. The Mini Electric is reliable, the suction is good and I don't find it uncomfortable at all as I was advised in the store to get a bigger size breast shield from the start. It is fantastically small and very portable so has done well at the office, in hand luggage for flights and fits easily in a medium size handbag for days out like weddings etc. The battery operation is very convenient & pretty good, not much noticeable difference from mains for a single pumpi...ng but does lose power after 2-3 uses. Accessories/parts are also very easily available. On the downside it's slightly noisy but I've found just about all pumps are so it doesn't bother me, however for me the real problem is the timing/speed is not adjustable (the suction power is though) & I think I'd get a better let down if both the speed & suction were independantly adjustable (as I had with my previous pump) which is why in hindsight I would probably pay the bit extra to get the Swing model if I was buying again now. Small, very portable, easy to use & clean. No adjustable speed, this pump would be excellent if it just had that!!
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
Questions & Answers
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.
The mini electric cannot be charged. It can be used on mains power and is also battery operated.
my mini medela pump's adapter is black in color like phone charger , i bought it from online today . i want to know whether the product is original or fake ???? can anyone help me?
