Fantastic, efficient little unit!
This is my 3rd baby and I'm not new to expressing. I've been using the Medela swing pump for about a week because of a cracked nipple and averaging 40ml of milk after 30 mins on the single breast. I was gifted the unimom portable pump and the next day, I was able to get 60ml after only 15 minutes. This thing is a gem!
I found the rhythm of sucking different to the Medela swing which I used for baby 1 and 2.
Another added bonus which I only just realised last night is that its portable without needing batteries! Now I dont have to sit in my pumping corner of my bedroom but rather can enjoy Netflix with the rest of the family! Win win!
I'll definitely be taking this unit out when I need to be away from bubs to ensure I'm keeping my milk supply up! Thanks for an amazing product!
Excellent Breast Pump
I just love the Unimom Allegro Portable Electric Breast Pump. I loved the fact that it was small, quiet, efficient and the ability to double pump is an added bonus. I was needing to exclusively pump for my 5th child so I had limited time. The Unimom Allegro Portable Electric pump allowed me to yield more milk than I needed in a short amount of time. I found the pump to be very comfortable, easy to clean, have a long battery life and excellent value for money. I am a lactation consultant and I am happy to recommend the Unimom Allegro Portable Electric Breast Pump to my clients.
I was already happy with the hospital grade Unimom Forte that I used during my time on maternity leave, however needed something for when I returned to work as I was planning on expressing during the day. I was very pleased with the customer service for the Unimom Allegro from Milkbarbreast pumps - Diana was quick to reply to my queries, and pump was shipped really quickly (received within 2 days).
I love the let down mode & portability (rechargeable battery - so no need for pump to be plugged in), and found that there was no reduced suction compared to the hospital grade pump I had at home. There are 7 levels of suction, but I am comfortable using levels 3-4 and have been able to express a good supply during work so my baby can continue to have BM while I have returned to work. I love that the Unimom Allegro is also a closed system, so I don't have to worry about any hygiene issues inside the pump etc.
I ordered the additional breast shield which was also delivered very quickly.
Perfect pump, very convenient
I borrowed the actual pump from a friend and ordered 2 breast shields via Ubere (excellent service, answered my questions fast to ensure I ordered the right parts, next day delivery). Works perfectly both single and double, portable and long battery life (no need to be near a power point all the time). So glad I have this pump.
I was very pleased with the Allegro. Its quiet, efficient and very comfortable. I love the fact that the pump can be converted from single to double, and that it is entirely portable (yay for car chargers!) Compared with another well known brand pump that I tried, the Allegro is definitely the better choice - hands down. Furthermore, dealing with Ubere was an absolute pleasure. Delivery was fast and when I contacted them about another matter, the response was almost instant.
Will definitely recommend both the pump and Ubere.
The Allegro is the most comfortable breast pump I've ever used. I love the let down feature included in the 7 cycles it really helps to bring in your milk gently unlike some other pumps. It's also super easy to pull apart and clean and is BPA free! This pump has allowed me to express SO much more than I could with my first bub and I would most definitely use the product again :)
Great product & wonderful customer service
I highly recommend this product and dealing with Ubrere. The Unimon Allegro breast pump is comfortable, easy to use and very hygienic. I also can't rate Ubere highly enough for their customer support, just wonderful! I had problems with the previous distributor who sent me a faulty product and then ignored all my correspondence. As soon as I got onto Elaine from Ubere I was sent a brand new pump and given wonderful customer support.
Love my breast pump
I love my unimom allegro breast pump. I've had this for two year with two babies. I love that I can use it as a single pump or double and that even when Iam out with my other kids activities I can still pump as it light weight has a car charger and easy to use.
Would recommend it for a every mum so versatile.
Thank you for an awesome product
Fantastic breast pump
The Unimom Allegro breast pump is very easy to use & hygienic. As a first time Mum who was nervous & uncertain about how to use a breast pump, I couldn't recommend it highly enough, it fits all breast/nipple types, is light & portable. I purchased it from Ubere who are quite rightfully passionate about their amazing products. They provided a practical demonstration & after sales support. Thank you!
Great breastpump! And great service from Ubere the new Australian distributor.
A fantastic breastpump, that I am forever grateful to for helping me get through multiple bouts of mastitis and pumping at work. The pump works as a double pump or single pump, either plugged into power or holds charge for a pumping session away from a powerpoint. I also have the conversion kit which allows it to work as a single manual pump which I found so valuable being able to keep it in the car with me, just in case... The portable size of the unit meant I could discreetly take it to work, and it wasn't as loud as some other pumps on the market.
I had issues with the previous Australian distributer, but have nothing but praise for the new distributor. I have had great communication from them both over email and phone. Elaine from Ubere is mum herself so completely understands where you are coming from. I highly recommend this pump and buying through Ubere.
Purchased the allegro pump over New Years 2014.
Received it a few days after ordering - which was a pleasant surprise, as I thought it would have taken longer (based on some of the reviews I have read).
Have used the pump moderately since and so far have not encountered any issues.
Many of my friends purchased another well known brand pump and theirs have all had major issues and struggle to get replacements. I've used mine at least twice a day for the past 4 months and have had no problems. Hopefully it's still going strong in a few years when I decide to have another bub.
Good price, works well, portable, easy to clean
Love this pump
Bought this at last years baby expo & have been really happy with it. I got the double pump but only use it as a single & just got the extra pump for spare parts as it was only $10 extra for the double as an expo special. Great pump, have had any issues & have been using a few times a week for 3 months. An announcement was made on their Facebook page that the owner was leaving (to have a baby I think) and obviously people are fed up with not getting responses but I do believe they have new management.
Inexpensive, works great
Terrible service and product
We purchased the pump from the 2013 Expo and it has NEVER worked since. Have been trying to get in contact with them and can never speak to anyone. Never return any calls or emails. Have raised a complaint with the ACCC and I am now looking at going to VCAT. I hope they have a store this year at the expo as I will be telling them where to take the product.
Pump is good, service terrible
This pump is good but seriously brought down by the terrible service. If there were another Australian distributer you would go through them but there is only one! If you can buy this in person at an expo do so. It took 2 weeks for my express paid pump to arrive. I also tried emailing and calling with zero response. It was quite stressful as my old pump was slowly dying and I'm an exclusive pumper. They are fast to take your money but very slow at actually sending out the product!! So keep that in mind if ordering online.
As for the pump, it is quite good. A full charge doesn't take long at all and I love the portability of it as I've taken it with me and have pumped at my parents house, while holidaying and around the house without hassle. I'd probably get about 4 x 20min pumps out of it. The pieces of the pump seem a little cheaply made but the pump does what it needs to do. The breast shield is quite thin therefore does not grip into the pump properly, expressed milk gets under this as a result but this doesn't affect the performance of the pump. As the parts (incl bottles) are thin I wouldn't recommend sterilising in a microwave or even in boiled water. With this pump you can double pump or single which is useful if, like me, one breast needs to be pumped a bit longer. It's not super quiet like they claim, but not so noisy that it would wake your baby. Overall you get what you pay for, it takes out your milk and is gentle so you won't come out with raw nipples.
Customer service, customer service and customer service
Love this pump. I previously had a Medela Harmony which I loved but thought I would get an electric pump for his baby as I will be working further away from daycare and will have to pump more. I bought this pump at the baby fair. Great price compared with other brands and so far so good. I am getting good yield from it and it is very easy to use.
Inexpensive, easy to use
Great budget pump
Awesome pump for its price, great suxtion. Could pump 200ml in under 10 minutes. Quiet and portable, easy to clean. I personally rathered it without the breast sheild but that's just a preference. Highly recommend this product and wish I'd had it with previous children. I had a double pump fwiw.
Poor customer service
Great Value & easy to use
I absolutely love my Unimom pump! I didn't expect to need it until I returned to work but little did I know that I would need it straight after the birth of my baby girl, she was 5wks early and in SCN,
It got a work out every
3hours day and night. I found this pump so easy to use & was extremely effective at expressing my milk. For such a well priced pump it preforms well above what you pay. Love it!!
I Just wanted to pop in and update in my original review, I am now 8 months into using my unimom Allegra double pump and it's still going strong and I still love it!! Have had zero issues with it and recommending it to everyone!! I started expressing with it when my baby girl was born 5wks prem. I expressed with it every 3hrs to get ebm to take to the hospital where she spent her first 8 days. Once she could be fully bf I started just expressing 1 time a day to start a frozen stash for my return to work at 7months. I have now returned to work and am currently using it 3 times a day!! As u can see it has been well used :)
Excellent pricing & easy to use
Fantastic breast pump was a life saver for increasing my milk supply when breastfeeding. Very affordable compared to other similar products. Easy to use and still working as new 12 months later. Quiet with great suction. Easy to take when needing to pump away from home such as when going on a holiday. Would recommend to everyone!
Excellent value for money!
I am so impressed by this pump. It is effective and efficient and such great value for money. I express everyday and have never had any issues with it. I love how portable it is and the battery charge lasts well, I usually get 6 sessions or more out of it. The customer service was really good too. I also appreciate the website for ordering accessories to go with it. My only suggestion for improvement would be working on the angle of the breast shield as I find that I have to lean back slightly to get the best suction and then have to tip it forward to get the milk to flow into the bottle. Howrver this may be due to my size and shape of my breast. I am so happy with this pump I have been telling all my breastfeeding friends. I highly recommend and am so pleased to have found this great product.
Good value for money and portability-it can go anywhere and battery charge lasts
The angle of the beast shield could be improved for those with smaller, pert breasts.
So much quicker!
Before having the Unimom allegro breast pump I had a manual breast pump and never had much success at expressing. I purchased the Allegro electric breast pump as the other one broke and am able to express easily and much quicker than I thought!
I would recomend this breast pump to others! It is easy to use, and very reasonably priced!
Price, ease of use, very quick and easy to use, service was great!
