So glad I got this pump, it saved my nipples!!

published

I have very sore nipples due to my newborn's tongue tie and latching problem. My baby also constantly falling asleep when BF and not getting enough milk. I'm so glad I got this pump because it's very quiet and comes with portable battery so I can express anywhere and feed her without hurting my nipples. The massage mode works really well to get a letdown.
The bottles that comes with the pump are also much better than closer to nature bottle. My newborn seems to get less wind when she use spectra's bottle so I have ordered 2 additional one.
Excellent pump and definitely worth every penny!

Holy grail for mums

published

For a first time mum, I have been really pedantic on the products to use before bub arrived, asking my girlfriends which works, researching, and looking at reviews. This one had the best feedback by far. So after using a hospital grade breast pump from the hospital and renting one for a week, I bought a Spectra S1. Best decision ever! Hassle-free expressing even in the middle of the night. I dare to say, it surpasses my expectations, even better than the hospital units. Convenient, user friendly, quiet operation and even good looking. Worth every penny. Love it!

Best pump around!

published

The spectra s1 is the most comfortable pump I've used! Takes me anywhere from 10-20 mins to double pump :) so easy to maintain and clean. I definitely would recommend this pump to anyone looking for one! It's a very quiet pump. The let down mode is a awesome feature!

Great quality for fantastic value

published

I purchased my Spectra S1 in February after trying 3 other well known pumps and it is easily the best I've used. I get a letdown using the massage function within 30 seconds and can get anywhere from 150ml - 200ml from each side in a 10 minute sitting. It is comfortable, easy to use and the fact that it's a closed system means it's easy to clean also! The customer service has been fantastic - it arrived the morning after I ordered it. I would definitely purchase this product again!

Really Good Pump

published

Spectra S1 is very comfortable to use, it even has massage function. I purchased it before I give birth, it was delivered to my home so quickly. I tried it and find it is quite easy to clean. Why I choose this product because I can use it after I go back to work. When I finish battery charging, I can use it for a whole week. It is really convenience for me. BTW, I really want to say is this pump is much stronger than other brand pump I tried. I will use this product again when I have my second baby and I will introduce to my friends as well.

Fantastic pump

published

I've borrowed this pump from my cousin and I must say I'm very impressed! With 2 children and a new born, time is a previous resource and the spectra S1 has helped me to establish my milk supply (something I struggled with). I found it very easy to use and love that you can adjust the vacuum strength. Although I haven't tried pumping both sides at once, the idea/option to be able to do this is awesome! The previous electric pump I used became less effective when milk somehow got into the tubes, however I like how this pump has a back flow protector that can be easily cleaned like the rest of the pumping equipment. The machine is reasonably quite too.
Overall, I highly recommend this pump to any expectant/nursing mum.

Great pump

published

After previously using a Medela swing, the spectra S1 has changed my world. I love how I can change the settings to suit me, the night light is great for late night expressing and the rechargeable battery means I can express anywhere. My once hour to an hour and a half of single pumping has now been cut to thirty minutes double pumping. It's easy to clean and maintain. Things I don't like is how the pump starts in pumping mode instead of let down mode. The unit is a bit chunky to be easily portable. The labelling on the storage bottles is of poor quality and washes off. The cup holder does not keep the bottles stable.

Aside from a few things that could be improved I am still very happy with this pump and would recommend it.

Excellent Breast pump

published

Very happy with my purchase of the Spectra S1 Hospital Grade Double Electric breast pump. I am feeding twins and it is easy to use with many great features like the portability, night light and timer. I found this pump much better than the pump the hospital supplied during my stay. I would definitely recommend this pump to any expected mum.

Simple!

published

Very easy to use. It has adjustable cycle and vacuum settings which makes it personalised just for you. The massage setting is great for the let down of milk.
The night light is very handy. This product is lightweight, made it easy to take to work and express. Much more affordable than hiring a pump through the hospital. Highly recommended.

Have been struggling with Avent manual pump, bought this and I've been able to express so much more pain free! So easy to use & pull apart + sterilize! Very happy and well worth the money. If you buy online they send you a discount code and deliver within two days.

Affordable hospital grade breast bump

published

Very pleased with my purchase! I used another brand which took me 40 mins each time to express at work. With all the positive reviews I purchased the S1 and I wish I could had it sooner! It is such a powerful yet quiet breast bump. I managed to get more milk in 20 mins. I like the let down mode as it imitates the way baby latches on. Overall I'm very happy with the S1 and I would recommend to any new mom who's returning to work. The only cons is that my nipples can be easily pulled into the neck of the flanges, maybe I could choose a wider flange.

Cannot fault it

published

I did so much research in which breast pump to get and with all the excellent reviews of the Spectra it was a no brainer.

I was originally going to purchase the s2 but wanted to take it anywhere without needing a power outlet... so this one was the winner for me and have not looked back!

Spare parts are affordable and easy to order too. It also fits the AVENT bottles perfectly.

Such a fantastic pump that is quick and easy to use. It can be used as a single or double pump. It is so quiet that I can even use it whilst on the phone! Whenever I have had a question the service team is great and responding very promptly. Would definitely recommend it to anyone needing to buy a pump.

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?!
