published

My partner used this pump on regular basis when were traveling, its easy to use and really compact which is just amazing, not as fast as the electric one but still works great.

Purchased in August 2017 for $50.00.

It does the job if you can't afford an electric pump

published

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.

Purchased in November 2018 at Target Australia.

Hi April, thanks for your review. We're glad to hear the manual pump has been helpful to you when little one was a baby. Hopefully the both of you are doing great!

Kind regards,

just OK

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

published

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.

Great pump

published

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

published

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

just OK

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

published

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.

Absolutely useless!!!!

published

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

published

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

published

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

published

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.

Very useful and recommended

published

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!

published

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!

Don't bother

published

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.

In fairness, I rewashed the bottle and it is now gripping much better - unfortunately I can't edit the review but it is working much better now the bottom isn't falling off and loosing suction

So comfortable and efficient

published

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

published

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!

So easy

published

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.

Excellent purchase

published

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.
Highly recommend.

I have just purchased the Avent Manual Breast Pump with Natural bottle SCF330/20. Can I use this model pump with the Classic bottles as well?

yes, of course you can use the classic bottles. the classic bottles just don't match with the SCF330/20's cap but it perfectly match with the pump.
