Loud & Nipple Blisters
I'll keep it short and sweet.
- VERY loud. Havent used the pump in 3 days and can still hear it somewhere deep inside my brain.
- Pulls and releases boob aggressively.
- Milk regularly goes in plastic funnel part where boob gets sucked in and that causes reduction of suction.
- silicone funnel caused blisters under both nipples.
- If not connected to wall, suction is weaker drastically and batteries are wasted fast.
Do not recommend.
Does the job.
This pump does what it’s meant to do. Can be used with plug or on batteries which is convenient when wanting to pump on the go. Downside is the noise can be a bit frustrating, and parts that have to be put together.
Does not work well
Purchased this pump during a half price sale at Baby Bunting while I was pregnant as I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to breastfeed and didn't want to spend a lot of money on a breast pump.
I tried this pump on the first night I came home with my baby. It was very loud, the parts were difficult to connect and I hated the plastic insert inside the shield where the breast is placed.
The plastic insert also made it difficult for my DD breast to fit inside the shield and more milk was being spilt over the sides of the shield than what was being collected in the bottle by the pump.
Not at all satisfied. WORST product ever.
Worst product ever. Not at all satisfied with the pump. Suction is not good at all. Also the tube connecting the motar and pump does not fit properly and needs to be adjusted many times during expressing. Also the motar makes loud noise. The amount of milk you 'll be able to express is less when compared to using other pumps like medela swing.
The Product is not Tommy Tippee Standard - Worst Buy
I found this pump to be absolutely not practical ... For a first time mother on the go ... who had a good start to breastfeeding until i had to start pumping ... this product has made me very despondent... the first thing that bums you out is the number of parts to mantle before use ... no first time mother has time for that ... and then to steralize these parts is a mission ... have to almost always recruit my husband to get the job done ... the product is very noisy, painful to use (extremely difficult to feed baby after use... leave the nipp...le tender and exhausted ) and i have to always try to pump away from my baby and husband because i have to leave the bedroom to pump ... the rubber always come out and sometimes the whole breast attachment comes loose ... the suction is poor ... the design is terrible ... the product is bulky ... the batteries wear out fast ... in order to pump you have to stay attached to a socket and the cords arent that long ... not to mention you have a 100 other things to do ... pump yields very little express and takes extremely long and slow ... you can never ever see how much you pumped or even if the pump is working at all ... cause the design is so bulky ... so much of milk goes to waste because it pumps and pours out the bottom of the nipple and wets your clothes and the balance gets stuck in between the head and the bottle ... the suction cord kinks and comes loose and is too short if you attached to a socket ... have to hold the product with one hand at a certian angle and use your other hand to hold the breast in the right position ... so even your hands are not available to do anything else ... wish i could get a refund as this product is expensive here in south africa ... please please please do not buy this product... complete waste of money ... should not be in the tommy tippee range because it is destroying the brands confidence in comsumers. Really not tommy tippee standard.

This Pump is worst
I thought it was a best price as my child loves the bottles as the shape of nipples are great
But the electric pump single one is no good
The first 2 weeks was great but now the sucking part doesn't work
I wish the plastic part was designed differently as after using it in sterilizer it stopped working
First 2 weeks was great
i bought the whole pack
I wish i could get a refund such a waste of money
i will never buy also suggest my friends & relatives not to buy
Worst pump; very noisy, doesn’t extract milk correctly - hardly any comes out, plastic tube is fiddly and sometimes disconnects. Basically bad design. After a week of failure, I went and bought a Medela for my partner and it was way better. We connected both, one on each breast to compare them and it was clear that the tommee one was absolute rubbish. My partner was so glad that it wasn’t her fault and that she could actually express plenty of milk with a proper pump (the Medela swing). Hope this saves someone else some anxiety Ref: I’m an engineer.

Great! Easy to use and clean.
As a first time mum I was hesitant to buy a pump as I had no idea about any aspect of pumping. My daughter is 7 months old and an absolute booby monster, which was making me worried for my return to work next month. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a pump so I thought I'd try this one out given the price point. It's great! I found it easy to clean and put together. I get about 60ml in 15 minutes from one side of pumping at night after I've put baby to bed. Very gentle and pain free.
Cons: not quiet and I wish it came as a double pump.

Very bad product, even not working as well. With my hand press works better than this machine. Do not by this. After return this I bought Avent, which is good.

Perfect & so easy to use
This electric pump is fantastic, so easy to use & to clean.
I pumped 150ml during my first express which I thought was fantastic & found the different settings to be great to find the right one for me.
Not the best product..
The motor is really loud, which is annoying and inconvenient if your wanting to do it near the baby. The suction cap is not that great, it either hurts your nipple or it doesn't suction properly and midway your milk starts leaking out the bottom. Also the tube connecting the pump to the motor is crap, it comes off all the time and the motor makes an even louder noise. Seriously not worth the money. Would have been better off buying a manual pump and doing it yourself.

NOT A WISE BUY / AN HONEST REVIEW
Bought this pump in January 2020 and I am completely unsatisfied with it.
The pump is not a wise buy, if you plan to be an active milk pumper better invest in a quality nursing pump or even if you're not, this product is not worth it. I pumped for the first time and yes it was great I got 60 mls, but for the next times around I was only getting under 60 mls, the suction is weak.
- Electric and battery operated pump, can be on the go.
-Weak suction, even when you use the maximum power button....
Almost ruined my breastfeeding journey
Ineffective breast pump, was only able to get 15ml and painful to use. I got 80ml from a more reputable pump..
It almost ruined my breastfeeding journey and was a complete waste of money.
Good easy to use product
This pump is very easy to assemble & resemble for cleaning, it’s effective in its use & I find I’m getting more than enough milk through using this. The motor can be noisy but I put a pillow over it & it’s almost impossible to hear. I use this 5+ times a day, it never changes in pressure, it’s always consistent. For the price of this item I’m very happy with it. My son is eating 60-90 mil per feed & every pump I do I am getting well over 120mil so I say that’s from a successful flow & good electric pump like this one I’m reviewing.

Not the greatest
I didn't find this too comfortable, I used it 3 times a day to see if I could get used to it, i couldn't get much out with this one maybe 5-10 MLS I ended up stopping using this one. Was easy to put together and clean ect.

A man's perspective...
This feels quite strange reviewing this breast pump but here we go...
I would be lying if I said I didn't try this on myself out of curiosity... so I won't say that. However this review isn't about how this works for guys, just my perspective of the pump from listening and watching my wife use it.
Firstly - She had the impression that she could buy this thing then walk around the house doing all the things she normally couldn't while breast feeding while this is pumping away collecting her liquid gold, then I could give the baby the bottle - ...and we quickly found out that is not the case. Apparently you need some special bra holder and even then that didn't work too effectively as the bottle gains weight as it fills up. Basically she had to sit down every time she pumped. It is pretty noisy especially on the high suck mode, so you will need to find a balance between having the tv up loud enough to drown out the noise, but quite enough not to wake up the sleeping baby, depending on your TV and the distances between Wife - TV - Baby, the volume at 15 seemed to work for me. It also pumps pretty slow, I know she would get frustrated that she only had so many mLs after sitting there pumping for so long - but I don't know if that is a function of the pump or just a function of her output, I would imagine everyone is different.
Poor design but for 99...
Poor design, it leaks air and milk first use out of the box. Used it for a week and put it in the black hole cupboard. All their other products have been great bar this.
Not so great...
As I first opened the product sterilised it and it was working fine but then the next time I washed it it wasn’t sucking properly which really disappoints me because I waited $100 for nothing now I’m thinking of just trying the manual pump
I was given this breast pump just before the birth of my first child. We were having attachment issues so I would have to pump every 3-4 hours. This particular pump was painful to use and did not fit the breast properly - it left marks and I felt dread at the thought of having to use it.
The pump had issues with suction as it had to be held in exactly the right position to ensure it worked correctly - it wasn't airtight. Furthermore, cleaning it after use was an arduous process as their are so many pieces that seem superfluous. The pump was also noisy and scared my puppy... the droning sound it made started to drive me mental.
I was happy to upgrade to a different model/brand that did not have these issues.

It's Not The 'Breast' .... But OK
This has been a great purchase as a first time Mum, reading some of the reviews i was a little sceptical. However with something like this, the persons body also factors in to how good this pump will work. I find it relatively comfortable, the amount of milk is not consistent though, but i cant say it is the product itself failing in that area or myself with not enough milk. Being the Tommee Tippee brand the amount of accessories are great, and the popularity means they are easy to find. This was purchased on special, i wouldnt recommend purchasing it for the RRP of $200, but at half price or close to... why not.
Questions & Answers
When the breast pump is on it works for a bit then the power button flashes and. It loses sucrion does anyone know why this is as its never happened in the 3 months I've owned it?
