Customisable suction to suit different needs
Helps boost milk supply
Easy to clean and maintain
I don’t have anything to compare it to but I would say it’s fairly quiet. Easy to clean the bottles and parts. Comes with some spare parts in the box. Easy to use - on/off and suction power dial. Would be good to be able to select the breast shield size when ordering,
Best by Far
With my first I went through 5 different electric pumps before giving up. When my second came along i did a lot of research and purchased the DEW directly from spectra. It arrived within 24 hours and was a dream to use. I used it daily for an entire year. The machine is quiet and comfortable. The dial allows you to really adjust the strength of suction perfectly to suit yourself. I have to say Spectra also have great customer service. I accidentally broke one of the tubing parts. When I called them to buy a replacement part they sent me two new ones free of charge within two days. I now have my third child who is 12 weeks old and am using the DEW again. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a pump.
I used medela for my first child and this product for my second. I can say that this is better than the first one. I find this more comfortable and easier to use. I have used this for a few months before switching to formula. Had I not used this before, it could have been only a few weeks before I lose milk supply.
The best pump wver
This pump is the best pump compare to other brand. It saes my sanity. Easy to use, quiet pump which works perfect when use at night. Have different levels of suction. Easy to clean. The only negative is it doesn't have the let down options. Big style and power operated.
Great product and value for money
This pump is great. It is competitively priced and is of good quality.
It is comfortable to use, with soft sounds. It is not huge in size and is solidly built. Suction is great and good enough to pump both breasts at the same time.
It is easy to clean and maintain, and parts are available readily online. Definitely recommend this to all the pumpers out there!
Love, Love, Love!!!!
When my son was born he refused to latch so I ended up pumping 12 times a day. For 10 weeks I used a Closer to Nature single pump (the noise still haunts me). One day I was browsing Groupon when I saw an add for the Spectra pumps. I was close to throwing in the towel so decided I had nothing to lose so bought one.
First of all I received it within 3 days of ordering! And OH MY GOODNESS the sound- non- existent! It was such a relief to hear the whisper of the Dew! Immediately my enthusiasm for pumping was back and I lasted for another 6 mont...hs until I could physically pump no more. It is comfortable to use and I could do it hands free with the right bra. I continued to use it between 8-10 times a day and my pumping time went from an hour each session (with the Closer to Nature one) to around 15 minutes for my breasts to empty. Was super easy to clean and quick, easy and cheap to replace spare parts- the website and customer service are great! This unit is amazing for the price and I will 100% be using it when I have my second in a few months.
I didn't pump often during my breastfeeding journey, but when I did, this pump made everything so much easier. Other pumps were really painful, loud and barely got anything out and the Spectra Dew was the complete opposite. It was really comfortable and easy to use, it doesn't make that terrible sound most pumps make and I was able to get almost a full bottle of milk out. Definitely worth investing in one!
Great pump for the price
I recently purchased this breast pump after using a single tommee tippee pump and it's been great. I think the only improvement would be including information about breast shield sizing. I need to purchase a different size as the standard size is too big but I didn't realise this until I did some of my own research. Otherwise it's been fantastic and I would definitely recommend it, especially if you're need to pump several + times a day.
The best pump I've used
I bought this pump from Groupon after being verified by Spectra as a genuine deal. It is the best pump I have used. I use the single and double pump feature and it gets so much milk in 10-15 mins.
After using other brand double pumps I was worried that it would lose suction when using it as a double but it doesn't. It's very comfortable to use and I've never hurt from using it. You can adjust the suction on it to suit your needs.
It's very easy to set up and to use it. I just leave it in the one place and set the suction strength i want ...and flick the switch to turn it on. I have used it a couple of times a day for a couple of weeks. I got the pink one and it's been a talking point with a few visitors as it looks like a boob! Customer service at Spectra has been great so far as I had some enquiries about the pump before I bought it and they got back to me straight away.
cheap and good quality
It is much more quiet then my other pump and I'm getting more milk out per pump then when i use my single, battery operated pump (not hospital grade). The bottles that comes with it are fine for my bub too. For the price of the pump I was very happy with my purchase as it is good quality and easy to use. Other pumps on the market are way too expensive.
I struggled with pumping breast milk. I could barely get anything out. There was nothing wrong with my supply either. I purchased the Spectra Dew because I had heard terrific things about their breast pumps, and I'm so glad I did! It worked amazingly. It's comfortable, doesn't hurt my nipples and it's not too loud like some other pumps.
Great! Never feel painful
So comfortable to use. I tried the other brand before, it is so painful when sucking. This pump will never feel painful, and it is quick to pump. There is no noisy sound. Bottles are big enough, easy to wash and feed. can be used from new born to 1-2 years old.
For the price of single pump now you can buy this double pump!
This pump I would recommend to anyone!Price is the best on the market for double pump and quality! It's so quiet to use and suction is adjustable. I think it's the best investment for having a newborn if you are determined to breastfeeding your bub. It's also handy to come with all the attachments, including freeze milk bags. So easy to use, just connect, turn on. When you finished with it, just removed tubes and wash. I used to hire breast pump from pharmacy $80/month. Not only the price, but also very noisy and auction is too strong.
Love this product.
I started off with a lower grade breast pump and switched to this one. i started off with a 24mm shield and then tried a 28mm shield and they are both awful. I only get around 20 ml from both my breasts. I find I have to stop every few minuets to change the position of my nipple otherwise it stops drawing milk. My little one is 2 months and I use to express a minimum of 60ml with a different lower grade breast pump. so I know it is not my milk supply as I breast feed the baby still and she falls asleep full after feeds.
I wouldn't recommend it

Amazing pump and excellent value
Used this pump 4 years ago for 12 months almost everyday and have used it almost everyday for the past 3 months with my 2nd child and it's still going strong! It's very efficient at draining my breasts quickly, relatively comfy and not too noisy. I have not used the double pump function so cannot comment on that. I would recommend this pump to anyone due to its ease of use, effectiveness and affordability. I paid $201 for pump, bottles and delivery in 2012 from a company called sweet beats and it's been worth every cent.

After using several manual pumps with my first child and spending hours pumping and getting hand cramps I decided to buy an electric pump for my second child. After much research I came across the Spectra Dew and couldn't be happier. My pump arrived 24 hours after purchasing and it does the job in a quarter of the time it took my old manual pumps. It is super quiet and comfortable to use, very easy to clean and I highly recommend it and would use again for any future children.

I'm really happy with the spectra dew 350--it's straightforward to use, gives me a good output, and the reduced risk of contamination of the tubes is fantastic! The only thing I would change are the connectors (rather wish it was inbuilt into the design-- they're easy to lose), and the flanges (would be fantastic if they automatically came with two flange sizes instead of one standard dize-- search youtube for guides on how to select the right side flanges for yourself-- DIYbreastfeeding gives a great guide). Flange size can make a huge difference to comfort (your nipples should be in the centre of the flanges) and output. The lactation consultant at my hospital also recommended it
Best breast pump ever!
The spectra dew 350 is very comfortable for use and been using this for more than 4 months. No issues with pumps. All the spare accessories are available and they are easy to clean and maintain. The spectra bottles that come with this is so lovely. My little one uses spectra. I would definitely recommend this product for friends and would buy again in future.
Questions & Answers
Hi I bought my Spectra 350 in August and have used it every day since, I exclusively pump so it gets a lot of use! I double pump and have always found its been great. Last night I turned it on to pump and found the suction to be reduced, I checked that I didn't have any damage in my valves (which were recently replaced), no damage in the tubes, made sure all parts were secured. Ive thoroughly checked the pump and all parts but can find no reason. If I close off the second hole and only do single pump it gives me my usual level of suction (this applies to both holes as I checked that both were sucking normally) and plugged in both of my kits to see if one was faulty in some way but both work perfectly on their own. I've never had reduced suction when double pumping before, it's decreased so much that I get hardly any milk coming out and barely feel the suction. Please help as I really rely on this machine to feed my daughter :( thank you in advance.
Has anyone else experienced their Spectra Dew suddenly no longer suck? It was fine yesterday, I cleaned the parts and went to use it now but no suction. The machine is pumping, there is air in the tubes but no change in suction when I move the dial, even to maximum makes no difference. I've tried different tubes, valves, everything but nothing is fixing it. Thanks.

Hi JHS, thanks for checking in about this. :)
I would encourage you to shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org as 95% of the time, suction issues are able to be corrected with some adjustments to your shield kit. :)
I will keep an eye out for your message so we can get this resolved for you.
Does this lose suction when used as a double pump or is suction the se as when you use it as a single?
Customer Service T.Spectra
Hey Ree! The suction drops slightly when used as a double compared to single, but this pump has very strong suction, not many mamas are using it on the max suction level, and therefore would just turn suction up slightly when double pumping compared with single pumping.
Please send us an email if you have any more questions!
- The Spectra Dew 250 Hospital Grade Double Electric Breast Pump has a single smooth, gentle (yet powerful) pumping action that makes expressing quick and simple.
- A larger hospital-grade motor makes for a powerful pump (with a vacuum range of 0-350mmHg) to draw out breast milk and build supply when needed.
- It’s suitable for heavy duty use (defined by the brand as 8 times a day) so it’s a great option for mothers who want to build their milk supply.
- It doesn’t have a letdown mode, so it may not be suitable for those who find it harder to express.
- This breast pump is advertised as being very quiet - Spectra says that this breast pump has a soft, constant noise comparable to heavy breathing, which could make it perfect for discreet expressing.
- The closed system and backflow filter prevents mould growth and moisture from the expressed breast milk entering the motor and - making this unit hygienic and easy to clean and maintain.
- It has a cycle length of 46rpm - this however isn’t adjustable, so may not meet the needs of all women.
- As an added bonus, the product looks like a breast! Subtle.
Points of praise:
- Most reviewers took a liking to the suction of the breast pump, saying that it was highly customisable to perfectly suit their expressing needs.
- The breast pump helped many reviewers boost their milk supply.
- It was easy to clean and maintain, according to many reviewers.
- Reviewers liked how readily the parts were available online, making them easy to replace once the recommended use time of the different components was over.
