The worst customer service
Pump is quite flexible. Howerver the liquid shield torn very easily.
Now come the worst part. Customer service is the worst. They stop shipping parts to my location and denied any responsibility. After a few email, they stop reply and no more warranty. They also blocked me on social media took dowm review. Just go for other more reliable brand.

GeniePlus - Top notch
After hiring a hospital grade pump for a couple months, I needed an affordable pump to use multiple times a day. I initially bought another brand of pump, but its minimum suction strength was too strong so was painful and yielded small amounts of milk.
Pumpables Genie Plus is a compact, light weight pump that has a good range of suction strength from super gentle to very strong. Although the pump comes with three sizes of flanges, I personally like another brand of flange, and Pumpables has fittings to allow for these to be connected so I can have a pumping experience customised to my liking. Their customer service is fantastic and informative and helped me to work this all out.

While I don't have any other pumps to compare this to - I loved this pump when my son was a newborn. Easy to use, easy to clean. Travelled with it several times and I love how compact it is.

Good little pump, a few features could be improved
I purchased this pump for occasional expressing. I've had the pump for 6 months. It generally works well, is light-weight and easy to assemble and clean. The settings are useful and easy to use, I like having the option to increase the frequency of the pumping and the strength was more than enough for me. Overall has been good, but there have been a few drawbacks which I will mention for others who may be considering which pump to purchase.
I haven't been able to obtain a high volume of milk, which may be due to the funnel being of incorrect s...ize. It is good that the Milk Genie comes with 3 sizes, however, I still required a smaller size which is not possible to purchase. A hack with pumping equipment designed for alternate brands is possible, but I was reluctant to purchase more equipment in case it didn't work. The main drawback for me has been that the tubes fall out of the pump very easily - this has made double pumping quite a challenge and I am unable to pump when feeding (I get best volumes this way) as my baby now pulls it out wherever I position. The bottle doesn't screw very tightly into the other part of the pump so sometimes comes loose and the neck of the bottle is horizontal and quite wide so I can't get all of the milk out of the bottles afterwards. When I purchased the pump it wasn't clear what came with it - lovely to receive pump to bag adapters and storage bags, but I had also purchased an additional pump to bag set, which was a waste. Pump is good, but in hindsight I would have bought a pump from a more expensive brand that I knew I could purchase different sized equipment for.

Mighty little pump
I used this pump to exclusively express for my baby for 6 months, for the first two months i was using a large medela pump. The milk genie matched the large pump with the added bonus of being portable. I purchased a cheap pumping bra on eBay and walked around with this in my pocket. My daughter was a catnapper and of she woke quickly while i was still pumping this little gem allowed me to tend to her at the same time. Its so strong and powerful for its size. I was tossing up between this and the s9 and im so glad i went with this little beast. ...The price point is great too. Their customer service is also amazing. My pump was showing and error but still worked exactly the same with no issues. All i did was ask what the error was on the pumpables community facebook page and within two days a brand new pump was at my door. No questions asked. Ive never dealt with such an amazimg cutomer service team. 100% recommened this pump and pumpables brand in general.

Great machine and comfortable
I received Pumpables Milk Genie from my friend. Once I got it, I just cant wait to open and tried it with greatest excitement. The pump is handy, easy assembling, quick charging, quiet and comfortable. Its gentle but also powerful, perfect for mums who have flat and sore nipples like me.
I used 20 minutes and pumped 110ml all together. It may be nothing for mums with great milk supply. However, it is a lot and means a lot to me who generally pumped 50-90ml. And its effortless. At the end of pumping, I didn't feel any discomfort on my nipples! What a gift!
Now I have put my Spectra aside and focus on using your pump for days and nights.

Comfortable pump that has a handy programming option to save your usual settings. Use daily multiple times a day and it is lasting well. Easy to transport. I just don't like the way that level 7 on the pumping mode it quite different from 6 and 8.

Great machine but needs more accessories and a few tweaks to be amazing
I've only had this pump for about a week, and it is a fantastic little machine. It's really small, quiet and powerful. It gets about as much milk as the hospital grade medela one I was using after the birth of my son. I only have a few things I would like to see pumpables add to make this great.
The pump needs a clip, as it's too big for most pockets and women's clothes often don't have them, a travel case with a wet bag or wet area would be good to make it even more portable. The bottles it comes with don't let the last drops of milk out due ...

I love, love, love my Milk Genie!
I’m so happy I stumbled across the Milk Genie about a month into my breastfeeding journey, it has been an absolute blessing for me!
I was so close to buying the Spectra portable (after trying it whilst in hospital) but at the last minute decided on the MJ after reading its reviews and realizing it was a fraction of the price. I bought the older model new on Groupon for just over $100 and it was an absolute bargain - so portable and lightweight.
I’ve been and pumped everywhere with my MJ - interstate several times, plus I took it on our 8 week t...

The game changer!
I purchased 2 pumps and stumbled across the milk genie on sale. It’s amazing.
It’s comfortable, portable, compact and quiet! Only downfall is there’s is no clip for portability. I express the same as the Medela , which is a lot. It’s great for on the go.

Portable, quick charging, double pump. Superstar online support team who respond quickly and are so helpful. Absolute game change compared to the big bulky plug in pumps my friends use. Have recommended to all new mums i know.

Great pump 100% recommend
Bought this pump as it was on offer on groupon and I wasn't sure at 20 weeks pregnant if I'd successfully breastfeed my baby. It's been amazing. My daughter hasn't a great latch so I'm 90% expressing all her feeds. I get 450-600mls per day using the milk genie. It's quiet, small, easy to clean and not painful to use. I prefer to use it as a single pump as my breasts work better on different settings. I usually use it for 30 minutes X 6 times a day. Battery life is good. When on one bar the suction does decrease a bit. So glad I bought it!

pump is barely working after 2 months of light use.
pump is barely working after 2 months of light use. even on level 10. should have a clip on it to make it practical so you can walk around.. Will have to look at alternate pump to meet my needs

Can't believe how easy it is
I bought this based on positive reviews, not disappointed!
I only need to use it on levels 2-4 and I get good suction without pain. I started using it as my milk came in late and I needed all the colostrum I could get. It was a life saver for me to maintain exclusive breast feeding. I use it to fully drain my breasts now after she feeds.
Powerful but gentle on my nipples.
Small and portable.
So easy to clean and take apart.
Thank you so much

Questions & Answers
Is this pump compatible with Spectra flanges?
Can I buy additional bottles/teats separately?
I only use separate bottles but I just pour the milk from the pumpables bottle into the Nuk ones I have
Are there sterilizers and bottles for this pump?
The instruction manual tells you how you can sterilise the parts (and which parts you can sterilise!). It comes with 2 bottles (for milk collection) and 2 teats which you can attach directly to the bottles for feeding.
Thanks for answering Ngoc! No sterilisers included, but you can use any standard method. The pump comes with 2 full pump kits, including bottles, breastshields etc. Please let us know if we can help with anything else :)
