Perfect! Couldn't imagine breastfeeding without it

published

Absolutely rave about this pump, I seriously can not imagine ever using a different pump again
Very easy to clean , great that it comes with the double pump option so I can have my pumping done quicker as I have a toddler to run around after as well as a newborn. 15 minutes on both boobs seems to empty my boobs enough as well as get my a great supply.

This is perfect!!!

published

This is a great pump with good suction and easy to use. I'm a first time mum and couldn't be more greateful that I have chosen this pump. So easy to use and very convenient with the portable function which means I can get on with things without having to be plugged into a power point.

Best purchase

published

I am very thankful I found this pump. Easy to use, not too noisey and works very efficiently. Spectras customer service team have been wonderful to deal with on every occasion and it is one of the few 'bigger' expense baby items that i dont regret buying'. I has the S2 with my first child and i was so happy with the product I upgraded the second time around for the S1 as it can be used without being plugged in so I could be a bit more mobile if needed whilst chasing a toddler around + I needed to use this one at work as well.
Parts are easy to clean and put back together, my 3 yr old easily reassembles them for me when shes wanting to 'help'. Definitely a great buy for any breastfeeding mums out there :)

Much better than Medela

published

I have both Medela electric double pump and the Medela manual pump, because many people use that brand, but after I using this spectra, I feel Medela total waste my money, I like spectra, more efficient, more comfortable, design looks nice. .It is very quiet when its pumping, easy to operate and clean , also has a wide range of vacuum settings to suit so that your nipples don't get sore. The product also has an effective massage setting which is extremely comfortable. Highly recommended.

Love this pump!

published

I previously had a cheaper pump and would never extract enough milk. It also really hurt my nipples and made a horrendous loud noise. The spectra is so much quieter, I've been able to use it while my baby is sleeping at night and there's been no disruptions. I now produce more milk too! If you're deciding over the pink or blue spectra I definitely recommend spending the bit extra to get the blue. Being able to charge it and use it without cords tangled anyway is more handy than you would think. Battery life of them is fantastic too!

Industrial strength!

published

Seriously great product. The suction is awesome and I can easily double the volume pumped compared to my other pump. Parts are plastic but well made. The rest horn is a little hard but accessories and spare parts can be purchased separately and at relatively cheap prices. Well worth the investment. I wish I hadn't wasted my money on other brands of pump. This trumps them all.

Excellent Value

published

Purchased from Spectra during one of their 20% of Sales. Extremely happy with the pump - have used for many hours and its not showing any signs of wearing out.
Night light is very handy and so is the built in battery.

Big thanks to Spectra AU for understanding their clientele and shipping out the pump via the quickest method possible.
Happy to recommend to anyone - for what you get, its extremely good value compared to Medela.

Excellent pump and customer service.

published

Easy to use and clean. Excellent battery life.
Good suction even when double pumping. I find it fast and efficient.
Excellent customer service from spectra baby australia.
I did need to buy different size flanges, but that was easy to arrange.
The bottles that come with the pump are too small so I bought Avent classic ones instead.

Cordless is the must!

published

Love this reliable pump never let me down. I chose this over the S2 model because it has the rechargeable battery and it lasts long time! You only need to charge it once a week? I like moving it around the house so I can do things like watching tv, playing with my baby at the same time. I have been using this for nearly a year. It's quiet to use. Got a led light which is handy to use at night time when baby is sleeping. I only use it as a single pump so I can free one hand to do other stuff when expressing. Spectra customer service staffs are very helpful too!

Perfect alternative to the Medela hospital-hire pumps and far less expensive

published

The nightlight feature is awesome, the bottle holder behind the handle is useful, the display clear if not as good at night as tech fans would like and the settings options are everything my wife needed. She found it more comfortable to start let down than the Medela ones and got a higher flow with less hind milk left. Discount codes brought the price down a bit too - better to buy than the S2 as the built in battery does work even if you're just on the wrong side of the bedroom or want to pump in the bath, but we know mums who express in the car on the way to work with this on the passenger seat.

Excellent machine

I bought online from the Spectra website and delivery was very fast.
My wife loves this machine as it is comfortable, powerful and easy to clean.
It has reduced pumping time to a minimum and the portability is also very handy around the house.
Would recommend this to any new mum

Fantastic breast pump with single and double pump options

published

I purchased this breast pump when I was going back to work and needed to express for my then 9 month old. It has a range of settings to pump milk including a let down function (that works!) and strength of pumping from low to high. For a hospital grade pump it is really well priced. Their customer service is great too. Highly recommended.

Great pump and great price!

published

Coming from a medela swing, having a double pump was extremely convenient.
With its rechargeable battery, it is easy for me to take this pump to work and express.
When I first started pumping, I was able to express 100-200ml per side, which was an increase from what I used to be able to do in about 10-15 minutes.
Parts are easy to pull apart and wash.

Instructions that came with it weren't the greatest.
Also, I wish there was an option to pick which size flange came with the purchase, as you end up having to pay a decent amount more for a new set and delivery.

Great Pump for a twin mum!

published

I was given this pump as a baby shower gift. I love the way it's durable and have different settings for massage and lactation with different speed. It isn't noisy and has the light that has 2 level of brightness which works wonder at night, so it doesn't disturb my babies and I don't have to get out of the room to pump. Even better that this product comes with double pump which fits most of the major brand wide neck bottles. This pump saves my time so that I have more time to rest.

far from perfect

published

I have been using S1 pump. It works great when using one side at a time, but the suction goes much weaker and uneven when using double side pumping, turns out it does not really save time to use double side pumping.
Also, the flanges that come with the package seem to be too big and always pull my nipples in too much. I am really worried if this will cause any damage to my breasts. Unfortunately, Spectra does not let customers choose proper flange size when purchasing their pumps.
The customer service person was really hard to talk to, always cut me off when I was trying to explain the issue and kept saying it's the issue with the parts and I need to purchase the replacement.

Very solid performance

published

My partner has used this product after the birth of our second child. The performance exceeds the use of a Medela product she previously used. It normally takes around 20 minutes or so for a full express on high settings generally getting 160ml. Would recommend to anyone looking to express feed.

Doesnt match the hype surrounding it

published

While it is portable its a pretty bulky unit so its not all that practical as far as portability goes. Availability (or lack thereof) of smaller shield sizes is frustrating. Customer service - started off great but I never received a call back to try and trouble shoot. I've had it a few months now and my supply has steadily decreased in this time. Maybe this is a coincidence but I much prefer the Medela Freestyle I was using prior.

Foolproof for newbies (like me!)

published

I was totally new to the breastfeeding/breastpump world so I was totally nervous about figuring it all out but when my pump arrived I was so relieved at how user-friendly it was! Minimal buttons to avoid confusion and never had a single issue with the pump. Used it everyday for 12 months straight. I just found myself constantly lurking the spectra fb page for tips/help haha! Would recommend again.

Could not live without it!

published

I absolutely loved the Spectra S1 pump! My first baby was difficult to nurse and being able to easily pump and give him a bottle was a big relief. I found the pump super easy to use and because it pumps so effectively it was incredibly helpful to increase my lack of supply. I will definitely be using this pump next time around - couldn't live without it!!

I was pumping and all of a sudden the Spectra turns off! I tried to turn it back on and the screen turns in but there’s no suction or pumping sounds from the pump. After a few seconds, it shuts off.

The battery is fully charged! Can someone help?!
