Didn't work for me at all.
This is my first and only manual pump so I don't have a good basis for comparison.
I bought this as a portable solution and it failed. I could barely extract 20mls of milk with it in 30mins total across two breasts, when an electric pump (even the portable 9+) got at least 40. More to the point, I could feel my breasts were still full after.
The handle is sticky, I'm not sure if it's a flaw or feature but I have to keep pulling it back after pressing down. Feels like it should snap back to be efficient. Also, the massager insert made the wh...ole thing lose suction. Operating the pump is also quite painful. I know all manual pumps are more rough/painful so this might just be me. I love Spectra as a brand and their customer service has been excellent so far, however I can't recommend this particular product.
Not so handy
I just purchased this item after researching and reading the positive reviews on the Spectra website. Sadly, I did not have the same experience as most reviews posted. I was only able to pump less then 10mls in 40 minutes from both breasts however I can extract 80mls in 20 minutes from one breast using an electric pump. When I contacted the Customer Service agent I was told “Manual pumps are not effective for many people”. I was very surprised and disappointed to know this after purchasing the product. I just wanted to warn others who are thinking of buying this pump to be aware of this fact so you don’t waste our money like I have.
It came the day after I ordered it! Easy to use
I ordered my pump on a Tuesday morning and it was at my place Wednesday afternoon.
I am about to go back to work one day a week, so I didn't need an electric pump and thought I would give the manual one a try. It is easy to use and works well. The instructions are on the box and are easy to follow. I am very happy with this purchase!
Fantastic pump at a very affordable price!
I ordered this pump and it arrived very quickly! I have never owned a pump before and I was very impressed at how easy it was to pump. This is the perfect pump for occasional use as it is super lightweight and your wrist does not get tired! Thank you Spectra for giving nursing mothers a very high quality product at a very affordable price!
I don't need to express regularly, just enough for some breast milk iceblocks for teething gums, and a bit 'just incase' and I had heard good things about Spectra. It is great and is a great price and was delivered very quickly. When I contacted spectra with a question they replied immediately even though it was a Friday night!
Grate value! Grate pump!
When I became a new mom, I have to go to work a couple of days per week for a month, then I realised I need a pump, as it's only occasional use and electric pumps are always more costly, I decided to give manual pump a try. I started to go to shops first like Big W, Target, Baby Bunting, Toys R Us, Discount Chemist, yet I found none of them has got pump around $50, which surprised me. Then I started to go online to try to find a bargain, but still as expensive as what those shops offer. Just by the time I was doing research, I found Spectra, th...e brand I have never heard of, they have got a very good deal, as far as I remember, $55 a manual pump plus 30 free storage bags, and first time was free shipping. Then I went for it. And turned out that I have made a very right choice. The customer service is super friendly and efficient, the order status is updated very fast, you will receive all the emails regarding to what you have done with the order which makes you don't have to worry about anything, and the delivery is super fast as well, was just a very pleseant online shopping experience. The product is very easy to assemble and use. It pumps efficiently especially when ur baby is sucking one side and u do pumping on the other side! Good price! Nothing
