It does the job if you can't afford an electric pump
When my ds was a baby I used the pump quite a bit as my boobs were not being drained properly it is comfortable enough to use and I was able to express enough to store milk in the freezer however my little one wouldn't take any bottles. Overall I reccomend the pump as it's cheaper then an electric and it does the same job probably a little more time consuming and effort need to be applied. Easy to clean.
not very recommended if you need to pump out a big volume or frequently, it will not give you what you expected but only very sore hands. choose the electronic one, it is more expensive but also more effective.
Purchased in June 2017.
Good for occasional use
This breast pump is good if you are not expressing multiple times a day. I prefer manual over electric as I can do at my own pace and is not expensive. But too much of manual expressing is so tiring. It is portable. Mine had a squeaky noise each time I press which makes it difficult to use in the room when baby sleeps.
I loved my manual great pump. Easy to use and easy to clean. I didn't need to use often-but on the occasions I did it was great. Was comfortable and reasonably priced. I would recommend to get a electric pump for anyone wanting to do it more than weekly but I managed with this one.
Hard to work out
Bought it for my daughter for her first baby in May. Took us a while to work it out as we took the plug out thinking the milk would not get through. Once we worked it out she was able to express without much trouble. She said it felt soft and not uncomfortable. I will be buying another one soon as other daughter is having a baby
bought two years ago, only used a few times. first two or three times was ok to use, although couldn't get as much milk out as the electric pump l used when l was at hospital, but still was quite acceptable. but after using it for few times l found it getting harder and harder to pump milk out, so l ended up buying another electric one and it was mch much better and much much more convenient. not recommend
I like it
This worked well for me. Comfortable and got a decent amount out. It did squeak though. I think to get a good amount out you have to trigger a let down. Also i removed the comfort pad. Good price and good packaging too. I would recommend it for using it on the go, its not meant for full time use.
I don't know if my pump is faulty or it's just has been designed to not work and waste my time. It squeaks a lot, can get some flow and it stops. I have to take it away and replace it again and again and again and have to do this all the time. It seems there is a problem with its suction. After 40 mins if I'm lucky I can get 40 ml from both breasts. I can get more milk if I use my hand only!!!
I heard from one of my friend she had the same problem and couldn't use it at all.
The only good thing about this pump is it's easy to clean.
Would you please stop making and selling these useless pumps!!!
Easy to use, tricky to clean
I found this pump very time intensive to use for both pumping and cleaning. A fair few pieces to take apart and clean between each use took up time I needed with a newborn. I used this one for for three months before switching. The pump itself functions pretty much as expected - you have to pump it constantly to maintain flow and make sure the seal around your breast stays in place. A little awkward to hold after a while and make my arm sore. Not bad for a manual pump but has absolutely nothing on an electric one.
Great product gets the job done
This products works really well gets the job done. Typically I need to pump for about 30 mins and then my nipples will hurt or my hand starts to hurt from pumping. The brand is really good if I had the money I would have brought their electric version. It’s really quick and easy to clean and fast to set up and go. I will keep using it until no longer needed because it’s simple and easy to use.
Hard on hand
It is easy to use but hands got tired after a few pump, easy to clean. Would recommend it to infrequent user but not regular user. Price is little bit to high. I can use hands to pump almost have the same amount as this manual pump. Overall it is not a bad product.
This product helps us to save so much more time and energy
It is easy to use and clean. I got it because I have to work sometimes and my husband can just warm the milk to feed our baby. Awesome product. Highly recommended if you prefer breast feeding. Very easy to use for ny husband too. Like it is lot. Thanks.
Very useful and recommended
Have used this pump for both my daughters. Very easy to assemble and clean. It does make a squeeky sound that disturbs hubby at nights and is time consuming but that is just like any other manual pump. Overall I think it does its job well and I would surely recommend it
So frustrating and not effective at all!
I purchased this to have on the go when out of the house. I spent a total of five minutes trying to find a way to make it work without feeling like it was ripping my nipples off. No one should fear for the safety of their nipples when using a breastpump. Never again!
What a waste of money, not only does it not work properly, it's expensive. Poor design means the bottle that attaches to the bottom constantly comes loose, no matter how hard you try to tighten.
I guess at least it's comfortable to wear while you're pumping and not getting much milk that you will then spill because of the loose bottle.
So comfortable and efficient
My first encounter with a breast pump was the highly rated Spectra S2 and it would take me 40 mins to 1.5 hours to empty each side. I thought this was just normal for me and that my boobs just took longer to empty. I was dreading each pumping session more and more so. I purchased this Phillips Avent for travel and wow it was a life changer! It was firstly very comfortable and I could lie back a little to pump and secondly it only took 5-10 mins to empty each side!! Wow amazing so I realised it wasn’t my boots but my lack of compatibly with the spectra. I haven’t looked back and absolutely love this pump and it is so portable too, I can pump anywhere.
Amazing! Well worth the money
I had the tommee tippee electric pump and was so disappointed with it as hardly any milk was expressed. So I purchased the avent manual pump to give it a go. Wow! It is easy to clean and assemble and allows for quick expressing. I use it around 7 times a day and its so comfortable, no pain. I have no complaints!
This was such an easy breast pump to use
As a new mum being a bit lost as to what I was doing it was great to find a pump that was easy to use and at a reasonable price.
It was so easy to clean.
I would strongly recommend this product.
My wife had never owned a pump before and we were hesitant to buy a manual one but it was the huge price difference that swayed us this way. The first time she used it we knew we'd made the right choice :)
She expresses when she's feeding on the other side and it works like a dream.
Very easy to clean and put back together.
I used this manual pump when i was weaning baby to bottle. Very easy to use, clean and sterilise. It did occasionally make a squeaky noise. Love how the milk storage cups and bottles fit onto the pump. Sometimes wouldn't pump properly but it was because i wasn't holding it correctly.
