Great pump

Purchased this pump pending the arrival of my third child, and it has been nothing but fabulous. It was exceptionally helpful prior to birth, as hand expressing colostrum proved difficult but this pump made it a lot easier. Maintaining my supply has not been an issue either. This pump is quiet in comparison to other pumps I have had for my older children. The night light is a lovely feature. The multiple cycles and vacuum intensity options are also a fabulous feature.
Customer service has also been very helpful, as the first pump to be delivered needed replacement which they sent out the morning after my husband requested it. Show details

Great Pump

My midwife suggested this pump and I’m so glad I got it. It’s super easy to use and much cleaner to use then the manual pump I had been using! A great extra feature is the light on the pump, we will be using the night light for night time feeds and pumps. Show details

Bottle easily leaks. Pump is ok

The pump works well. It's not as strong as the other models I've tried. The main issue is the difficulty in maintaining a seal on the bottle. It's a fine line between over tightening the cap and not tightening it enough. This is an ongoing issue with all 4 bottles we purchased through Spectra. Show details

DO NOT BUY THIS PUMP

DO NOT BUY THIS PUMP!
I previously used Spectra for first child, and had no problems with the pump . Figured I'd try again. After just 3 months using the pump I noticed I could hear liquid on the inside. I had assembled it correctly so had no clue of the problem. Mind you, I've never spilled anything on this pump. I realized it was sucking pack of the milk into the machine. I contacted the company and they refused to give me a new machine saying it was water damage, not a manufacturing defect. Whats worst is my 3 year old spectra from my other child is not dead. Will never choose this pump again.

Waste of money

I bought this pump about 6 months ago after reading all the positive reviews on the Product Review website.
This is the worst purchase I’ve done in my life. The pump is bulky, heavy and very loud and noisy.
I’m not really sure if the reviews on here are all paid reviews as this product is far from what it has been described here. Show details

The Worst Customer Service…

Got s2 pump delivered 2 days ago and the same day contacted customer service for the return address . Mind you it’s not open at all even the postage package is still intact . No phone , no emails returned no face book messages return . What do I make of this . We are all very busy in this world but customer service is a very important part of a business . Let’s see if someone contacts me from customer service after my last resort of writing a review. Please be aware . Do your research and choose wisely .  Show details

Pump works well but very expensive to replace parts frequently

Pump is effective, however it isn’t clearly stated on the website when you purchase that if you pump a couple of times a day you should expect to replace the parts every couple of weeks. This knowledge was only shared once I emailed spectra after the new parts I spent $67 on stopped working after just one week. I was advised to expect to be spending this every couple of weeks, which means the $299 pump is in fact $299 + $67 each 10 days of use (a couple of times a day). Buyer beware of this ongoing cost before purchasing. Show details

Very efficient pump!

I have been using it daily for around 6 to 8 times per day and can't fault it. I have been hearing great reviews so bought it for myself. Not the cheapest but it is great value for my buck. Been using it for nearly 5 months now and haven't encountered any issues yet. Although would love to have tried the s1 for portability, but still very happy with my purchase. Show details

Best pump around

This pump was amazing. I cut holes in a sports bra so I could pump hands free. Its quite, easy to use and made a massive difference to my supply. The battery life is pretty good but if you're pumping 3 hourly, like I was, it's best to keep it charging all the time. I cannot recommend it enough!! Show details

Absolutely Wonderful Breast Pump

I hired Medela hospital grade breast pump and used until baby is 4 months old. Then I start using Spectra. Comparing the two, Spectra is far more excellent in expressing milk in my case. I can almost empty my breast in each pumping within 30mins. I highly recommend Spectra to all new mum. It is more effective and worth investing in.  Show details

Would definitely recommend!

This pump is perfect. I am very comfortable using it. I love the vacuum and let down mode. I use it every third hourly. Spectra s2 is also very high in quality. The noise is very minimal. I love the lamp too. I don't have to open the lights anymore when I pump at midnight. I am also very satisfied with the amount of milk I get with every pump. This is also hospital grade so it is more powerful and effective than many personal-use pumps. This added strength and better mimics my bub's natural stimulation. I love this pump and would definitely recommend it to mum's out there. A great value for money. Show details

Questions & Answers

Venessa M.

Dear spectra. I have a spectra- with blue colour and have noticed it is becoming increasingly loud when I pump, compared to when I first started. Is there something i need to do to quiet the pumping process. It is especially loud during the mimicking of suckling.

My pump powers on and immediately powers off, any ideas?

Details

Features:

  • The Spectra S2 Hospital Grade Double Electric Breast Pump has 320mmHg of suction, as well as the ability to adjust this suction strength so you can choose what’s most comfortable for you.
  • Double pumping lets you save time by expressing milk from both breasts simultaneously - making it great for time-poor mothers (which is, let's face it, most mothers).
  • It also has a massage mode to promote quick letdown.
  • Spectra advertises this breast pump as being “super quiet”, meaning it could be a good option for those after discreet pumping.
  • The breast pump has an adjustable cycle speed, letting you choose between 5 speed settings between 38 and 54 rpm.
  • It’s a closed system, meaning no milk will leak outside the pump, and nothing will get in the pump, making it more hygienic for both mum and bub.
  • For those who find themselves up at all hours needing to express, this breast pump has a night light and timer to make those sleepy express sessions slightly easier.
  • It’s mains-powered, so it must be plugged into a power outlet in order to operate.
  • The whole device weighs 2kg.

Points of praise:

  • Most reviewers said that this breast pump was efficient at expressing milk and effectively mimicked a baby’s natural stimulation. It also didn’t lose suction.
  • The night light was appreciated by a lot of reviewers, who said that it provided enough light to see what they were doing during night express sessions but was dim enough to not disturb anyone else.
  • Reviewers said that the device made minimal noise.

Pain point:

  • The main pain point of this breast pump is that it isn’t very portable, as it’s bulkier than most other breast pumps and is mains-powered. Spectra however doesn’t advertise it as being portable, and portability may not be a pain point for women who don’t require a pump they can easily take on the go.
