It is worth the money!

published

It is comfortable to use if you get the right size breast shields, it has a built in rechargeable battery. It is so easy to clean and mould can’t get in the system, I would use the product again if I need it in the future. It also comes with a built in light, I would recommend to anyone!

Very good quality & Value for money

published

We purchased it recently with our first one. First one arrived was faulty & was making clock ticking sound. Online support is very good and can answer you in 1 hour or so. They send replacement immediately & let me keep the kit came with previous faulty one. I am happy in terms of it's performance, low noise, great suction.

Best Pump Ever - Life Saver

published

This is an absolutely amazing pump, very pricey but compared to the other premium pumps on the market it is not pricey at all. Love the flawless double pump experience, my wife is extremely happy. Convenient to have the battery and I love that it's hospital grade which means all you have to do is wash the bottles not the tubes, very hygienic.

Great pump

published

I couldn't imagine how mums can live without a great pump! I could bump on the go, at work, in the car even if I needed so it made life so much easier. I managed to freeze quite a lot also which means my 1 year old has only just now had a few bottles of formula. It's worth the money and so buy it from the Australian distributor so you get the warranty.

Fantastic pump

published

This was a brilliant breast pump. The double feature is fantastic. It is super quiet so i could pump in the middle of the night if needed. It has a timer and a little light so you can see what you're doing. It isn't too bright. The speeds and suction can be changed too. Totally worth the money.

Yes I forgot about the rechargeable battery. Best idea. Totally worth the extra $$ for the one without the cord!

Best pump ever

published

This is my second baby and second breast pump and I give it a 10/10! Battery life is great, convenient not having to need a power point, lots of settings, extracts milk quickly - I absolutely love it and would now never use any other brand! My last pump (another well known breast pump brand) didn't block the back flow so I'd have milk going up the tubing and sometimes in to the machine which is was annoying and unhygienic - the spectra blocks the back flow so you don't have that issue and is the only pump I know of that does this. Totally worth the investment!

Fantastic!

published

I bought this pump after suffering with a hand pump and a different brand electric pump for six months. I wish I had discovered it sooner!
It is so simple to use and I especially like that you can change the settings to suit what you need in terms of pressure. The cordless design means I can sit in a comfortable position on the couch and not feel like I am dragging a huge thing around. It is beautifully lightweight.
It is a little expensive but I honestly think it is worth it. Only downside is not being able to chose the shield size, so I ended up with shields I couldn't use and had to purchase the right sized ones as an extra expense.

Can't find a flaw.

published

Pros: Comfortable to use. Easy to clean and maintain. With built in battery so you can pump anywhere. Very very quiet. Fits most wide neck bottles so no drop is wasted.
Cons: Expensive (although worth every dollar)

Awesome Pump!

published

Easy to use and very comfortable. Its quiet enough to keep in nursery so you can pump at any time without waking everyone. I used the machine for twice a day for 3 months and had no issues at all. I wasn't sure how to set it up when i received it, so i rang customer service and they were extremely helpful.
My only issue was that i would of like to buy more bottles, but read that Advent bottles also fit the attachment.
It is very easy to clean and i would recommend this product to any mum.

Brilliant pump!

published

I had been using the medala symphony for a couple of months and then decided to buy a pump system and chose spectra based on the many positive reviews. So glad I did, it's the best! Only drawback is that it would be better to be able to pick your shield size or be prompted at the shopping basket about converter pieces for the medala to the spectra. Small gripe for a great product!

Can't live without this!

published

We were still in hospital when we ordered the Spectra S1, we arrived home the next day and it was there waiting for us on our doorstep! Super speedy delivery!
It is so easy to use, clean and is so quiet and most of all works efficiently so I don't have to spend hours pumping. It also has a battery so I can use it wherever I want.
I am exclusively pumping at the moment, because my newborn has latch problems and as a first time mum, this has been a life saver and made things less stressful.

Quiet, easy to use

published

I use this every day or second day for about 20 minutes and get good output. The suction is hood and very adjustable. It's very quiet - does not wake husband or baby ehen I use it in the middle of the night. Cleaning is very easy and the portability is very handy.

Hi PegL,

Thanks for leaving a review of the S1 pump. We are thrilled to hear you love your pump, and find it really helpful and quiet :-) I love the nightlight feature - handy for those overnight pumping sessions. Warm regards, Alli, Spectra Team

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 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.

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?!
