I wish I've read this reviews before I've got this pump. Tried it at first while in hospital, got a few drops out,at the time I thought that is just low milk supply.
Tried again at home after some time and same thing again,a few drops . I can express more milk by hand,very disappointed with this product.

Doesn't work very well
I bought this breast pump on sale for $35 from Baby Bunting when I was pregnant as I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to breastfeed.
I tried it the first night I got home from the hospital and it was useless. Hardly got any milk out even though my supply was great and when pumping, milk was spilling out everywhere.
I also hated the weird plastic insert over the funnel which was too small for my DD size breast and difficult to remove for cleaning.
Useless - waste of money
This is a waste of money. It doesn’t work, the milk spills and the components easily disconnects as you try to pump. It really doesn’t work. Don’t waste your money on this product. I was very disappointed considering it’s Tommee Tippee and it was a bit pricey.

Do not waste your money
I have tried to use this pump on many occasions and it is absolutely useless ! I am ebf and this pump does not get so much as a drop out !! There have been occasions where I have got a blockage and desperately needed to express and this pump has reduced me to tears- please do not waste your money on this product ! I am now using an Avent which is much better and actually does the job !!

I bought this with the thought it would be easy to use back at work, and being from a reasonable brand, it should be good. I was WRONG!
The silicone components fit extremely poorly, are constantly releasing the seal while trying to pump, and you cannot get any sort of reasonable suction as the handle only allows minimal pressure. I have tried multiple times to get this working and always met by disappointment and going back to my highly reliable Avent pump, so twice the washing up.

I was dissapointed with my pump. I found I had to pump a long time just to get 10ml and my hands would become quite sore. Some times I did not get any milk at all. I did not feel much of a suction while pumping. And the parts are quite fiddly to clean. I much prefer my Medela pump and find I get a lot more milk with fewer effort. I had hoped this would be a good buy as it is reasonably priced but unfortunately it just didn’t fulfil my need.

Disbelieve of the product
Nothing at all. I did try using this product for expressing milk but wouldn't drain a drop. It just kept making noise and no action. I wanted some reliable pump to draw milk for my little one but this one was an absolute disaster, not even closer to the cheapest pump you get in the market. I had to go back using the same cheap brand. I don't know why they market the wrong thing in the market and that too with discounts. I would not recommend anyone to even think about buying that product.

Got my 1st Tommy Tippy 6 years ago with my 2nd child and loved it! 3rd baby born 2018 and again used it, it lasted for 6 years! Broke and had to buy a new pump. So i bought the Tommy Tippy again and guess what? It is a piece of junk! The new look might disemble easy but i does not work! Period. I'm a huge Tommy Tippy fan but this new look of yours makes the pump useless!
Does the job!
I purchased the manual breast pump just incase we were out and I needed to pump. I find that really convenient. I mean who wants to take out and electric noisy one lol. The only thing is for me it was a bit hard to use as my hands got really tired and I didnt even get anlot of milk out.! I just used it as a reliever and not for a full express session.

Easy to pull apart to clean
Ordered online from Babies R Us. Came in a kit with the pump, steriliser box, 4 bottles in 2 sizes, screw on bottle caps, breast pads and spare valve for the pump.
I have found the pump easy to pull apart to wash and sterilise. It is easy to use one handed. I love that any Tommee Tippee bottles can be screwed on to it.
Only thing that could be improved is to have a little stand for it as it does not stand on its own with a bottle screwed on without it being full of milk.
Otherwise it’s a great product at a great price.
Does the job, better than an electric one.
My partner had been using an electric pump for the first few weeks and decided to go manual seeing she wasn't producing much milk, decided to go with this one and so far it's improved a fair bit in terms of the amount of milk she is producing.
Kit is easy to install and also easy to clean also.
Easy to use and good for the price
I found this pump relatively easy to use. In fact, I purchased it for a second time after having my second child, as I did not keep after having my first child. Although I rarely express milk I have found that when required this pump does the job. It is comfortable to use once experienced, although was tricky to master initially. Could express a full bottle in 10-15 mins. It came with its own tub for sterilising which makes it convenient to clean and is extremely handy. It was an inexpensive option for expressing milk as I bought it in a set wi...th four bottles, pacifier and steriliser. I purchased it in the sales so was a very good price. I have never used an electric pump so cannot make a direct comparison but I would definitely recommend as a good option for those on a budget
Could be better for the price
I purchased the kit ($69.00) which contains:
1 x Pump (manual) (I wish I brought an electric one)
1 x Steriliser box (Love this!)
2 x 150ml bottles
2 x 260ml bottles
4 x Milk storage lids
1 x Soother (0-6 months)
6 x Breast pads

Used it only a few times, because it is very hard to pump and takes ages! Not many parts but still quite hard to keep it clean. On the positive side mine came with nice milk bottles and storage containers.
The price was good so It might be worth purchasing if you don't intend to use it on the regular basis.
Okay but hard to clean
Okay to use but the only thing is very hard to clean especially inside the pump that you can't open or detach it. It looks smooky after 3 or 4 times use. The silicone pump needs a proper wash after every use. But worth the price with a set of container and extra parts.
Terrible breast pump (manual)
Not sure if our product was defected or others faced the same problem? It was difficult to assemble the product and it was detaching again and again so we needed to hold it with one hand. Its suction was not good either, required lots of pumping to extract milk. Don't like it. It was brand new.
Preferred the manual over the automatic
I found I got more milk for a manual pump - but I was mor labour intensive ( you have to literally hold it over the breast and pump at same time ! The auto was easier , hands free - however you are tied and restricted to sitting near the power point ! The manual means you can walk around and pump at same time ! For my next child Iwojld likely invest in the hands free pumping bras just to save time - looking back i spent too much of my time pumping rather than bonding my bubba!
Quite decent for a manual. Managed to express 30ml from one side after about 5 minutes so I'd say that's a good effort. So easy to clean. It hirts my nippled a bit but that's something that definitely depends on the individual. Wouldn't use it for anything other than occasional pumping but would definitely use again.
