Amazing results from this pump
I purchased this pump after getting no results from a medela. Immediately my output doubled and in half the time. Don’t waste your time or money on other brands, this pump is amazing. Also super fast delivery. Highly recommended for anyone wanting fast results with supply. The double pump also is great
Can't fault it
Bought this after seeing so many good reviews from other expressing mums and I am impressed! Best part of this is the portability and I was able to use it at work. I have low supply and I don't know how I would have continued if not for this pump. Tip for others is to buy accessories whenever there are sales. Sometimes they're on sale at Groupon and ask for promo codes from other mums!
Customer service is great!
Fabulous - can’t live without it!
My entire experience purchasing from Spectra was amazing! The staff are so friendly, helpful and prompt at responding to queries. I had an issue with sterilising the parts when my S1 arrived and they rectified it immediately. The pump itself is great! Really efficient and the flanges are comfortable. From my perspective it is worth spending the bit more on the S1 to have the flexibility of the cordless.
This is a very powerful pump from which I can express much more milk that I ever could with my medela swing or avant. Also not at all painful and very quiet, i recommend it for any new mum. I will definitely continue to choose spectra. Best pump ever made
My lifesaver spectra s1 breast pump
My lifesaver, this breast pump is well worth the money / price tag
Gentle expressing makes it bearable
Nurses made me use the medela brand in hospital...arghhhh...ouch....i have never been so happy with my purchase...glad i didnt go for medela because theyre far from gentle
Pricey but worth every penny $$
One less thing to worry about!
I bought my Spectra S1 second hand but purchased all new attachements for it. It has been a godsend. I love that it has a long lasting battery. It’s suction is powerful and the letdown mode really gets the milk flowing. Can’t live without it.
Spectra customer service have also been amazing to deal with and their service/repairs are quick and affordable (I accidentally dropped mine out of the car - it was returned to me within a week - they even have the option to loan you a pump to use in this time!)
Best pump for me, portable and convenient
Pumping is not the most comfortable activity in the world, especially if you exclusive pump, so I find this pump is very nice as it's not as strong as the Medela symphony but strong enough to extract milk quite well.
I've used my pump for my 1st for exclusive pumping, and for my 2nd for once a day pumping. They both were not huge milk drinkers so it was pretty effective for me. I've had the pump for 2.5y and it is still working well, but I've taken very good care of it (never dropped it and only recharged when battery is low). It's actually qu...
I bought Melela single brestpump first but it is really hard to pump. I pump for one and half hours but only came for 15ml. I end up mastitis. But this product is great. easily to use and can portable. you can choose all the setting by yourself. Highly recommended
Wouldn't have been able to live without it!
I went from the Medela Swing, to the Spectra M1, to the Spectra S2, then finally onto the S1 for the portability! I wish I had have got it from the start as it is the absolute best! Worth the extra money for the rechargeable battery, so handy to pump on the go. Hundreds of dollars cheaper than other brands and an amazing product with a 2 year warranty.
Great pump. Probably the best on the market but not without flaws.
Great pump and I can reach letdown much faster than with my Medela Swing. I’m not sure if it actually extracts more but being able to pump in 10 mins as opposed to 45 mins is a major plus!
A couple of cons I’ll note:
-The size - not too portable but expected for a hospital grade pump. I used to like using my Medela Swing with a pump bra and hook it to my pants so I could do my house work while pumping. The spectra is way too big for that.
-Would prefer more power on double pump - I’ve found the power goes down on double pump so even on hi...
Comfortable, Portable and Awesome
This pump is so comfortable to use. It is easy to assemble and use. I am so glad I got this one, the rechargeable battery is so worth the extra money. I can pump anywhere any time and the battery lasts ages. I use this machine daily. The shields don't have many parts so the cleaning is a breeze. Love the various modes and the night light. Love it. So glad I got it.
Love that you can use the tommee tippee bags with the shield too. Added bonus.
So silent yet so powerful
I love that it's a closed system so no moisture can enter the tubing. It's very quiet compared to other brands and works exceptionally well.
I was advised to get the medela but after doing extensive research, I settled on this. I got the s1 plus on sale at spectra so it cost $70 less than the retail price. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I've also purchased the milk bags and cooler bag from spectra. It's really worth the money spent.
Works really well! Battery last long & easy to clean!
This is the only breast pump that I have used so far. It works well, parts are not overly complicated, therefore easy to clean. The flange that it comes with is a standard 24cm, it didn't fit me, hence I have to purchase a 20cm flange separately. It would be great if there is an option to choose which flange when you purchase the machine.
Machine is a bit heavy though which makes this not easy to travel with. If you are using it predominantly at home, this is a good machine. If you are thinking of getting back to work or use it while travelling, better explore a more portable machine.
Best breast pump.
Super effective breast pump. Recieved the day after I ordered it which was amazing. Good battery life, love that it is light and portable enough to take with me on the rare occasions I'm not at home to pump. The night light and timer are great features. I did need to go down a shield size, but that was easy enough.
my bub's sustenance
This GREATLY helped me and my bub for 8 months!!! No dramas, worked well all the way. Battery was very good, lasts me more than I expected. The night light is a plus, not too bright when pumping in the dark room with bub. The sound is a bit loud but it is like white noise kind of sound, so it doesn't really wake my little one and husband up.
And I got it for 15% discount as well, just watch out for those promos if you are not in a hurry to get one.
Now I have let 2 of my friends use it.
The only downside I feel of it is just that everything is online for it, so you have to wait 2-3 days for your product to arrive, so plan early.
Don’t bother with any other pump this it worth it’s weight in gold
After baby no.1 and using another brand with only one attachment baby no.2 came along and I wasn’t going to mess around it was so easy to set up and pull apart to clean. I could express both sides within 15 mins instead of an hour like my previous pump. I got the rechargeable/battery one so I could use a pump bra and pump hands free whilst making my toddler breakfast. But if cost is a problem I’d got the model down that need to be attached to a power source.
Absolute lifesaver for feeding bub
I needed to express in the early days of giving birth to stimulate milk supply. The things I love about it is that is gentle on my boobs, makes very little noise, is portable so I take it to and from my room and can pump in front of the tv to keep me entertained and the parts are easy to assemble and easy to wash. I like the massage function too which stimulates my letdown so I can get more milk out for baby. I think the slightly higher cost for the ability to pump without plugging in is very worth it, and overall the pump is fantastic value fo...r money considering how much it costs to hire one! In addition, the ability to double pump has saved me so much time. I now sit and pump on both sides at the same time for 10-15 minutes and I’m done – it’s super easy. The only things I think are potential ‘cons’ are that the plastic tubes seem to come away from the backflow protector sometimes, but that might be because I carry it around so much around the house, but I just plug them back in and they don’t impact on performance whatsoever. Also double pumping is a bit tricky – I have to really sit there and hold them both up and tilt a bit forward so the milk goes into the collection bottles, but that’s just getting used to, and 10-15 minutes of my time to sit and zone out while pumping really isn’t a huge issue. Overall really great product and one of the best things I have bought for bub – it allows my hubby to feed baby once in a while too and give mummy a break. It's great value too when you consider how much it costs to rent a pump. Highly recommended!!
I love the Spectra S1 double pump. Its easy to use and easy to clean. The built in battery makes it easy to use when your out and about, the best feature by fare!
It is comfortable to use with lots of speed settings. Would highly recommended purchasing the spectra pump!
This saved me
I have used other hospital-grade breast pumps before, including Medela and Ameda, and just thought pumping was awkward and clunky with no way around it. Until I tried the Spectra S1... life changing! I pumped A LOT with both my kids, with almost every feed for around the first 6 months, so a good breast pump made all the difference to me. It's easy to move around with, so I can pump while watching TV, easily take it to the bedroom to use during the night... no unplugging from the wall every time. It only needed a recharge about once a week. And...it has a night light! In addition to the excellence of the product, Spectra's customer service was top notch. They are super easy to reach, and are experts in using the pumps themselves, so they understand how vital it is to have a reliable, working pump available. I highly recommend this breast pump to any mum who relies on frequent pumping.
Excellent item for any breastfeeding Mum!
I decided to buy an electric pump to replace my manual hand pump and it was the best decision I made post pregnancy. The pump itself is rechargeable which was one of the biggest reasons I bought it, for portability when I returned to work. You can double pump, change the speed and suction settings and it even had a light for night time pumping. There’s even a deep spot to sit your bottle in once you’ve finished. No issues with this product at all but just make sure you have the tube fully connected with no air intake otherwise it won’t suction properly.
Questions & Answers
Help my spectra pump has turned on but now none of the buttons will work to switch between modes, increase suction or even turn it off.
Just had the same problem! Did you find any resolution?
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.
