great pump! Better than Medela!
The unimom pump is very good. I have a couple of issues though.. with the silicone massager it really helps me to get a letdown quickly however they are too small for me. I really wish they made them larger to accommodate the 27 mm /30 mm flange. I can get the milk I need in 30 mins with the silicone massager but it’s sore. Without it it takes me an hour to get the same amount of milk :( There is also a loud knocking noise after pumping a long time.. don’t know if the motor is wearing out or overheating? Machine gets very hot to the touch .
Purchased at Trademe.
A fantastic breast pump, far exceeded my expectations. Quiet, fast to charge, easy to assemble and clean, this pump has been an absolute life saver!
Not too big or bulky, easy to sit with comftoably while still being with bub
Purchased in April 2019 at The nile for $179.00.
This pump is my best friend! Easy to assemble, use and clean! Great size for travel. Has really helped my milk supply. Great value for money. I use it every 3-5 hours. It is a little noisy but doesn't matter too much.
Purchased in March 2019 for $299.00.
I should have bought one earlier
I wish I bought a unimom breastpump right away after my baby was discharged from NICU almost 3 months ago. The midwife recommended unimom brand to me but I wasn’t too sure if the quality is the same as the hospital’s one. After 3 months of hiring a medela hospital grade, I’ve finally given unimom a chance. I can’t believe how good it is! The pump’s grade is the same as medela’s hospital grade pump. My money is not wasted at all. I could have had a lot of savings if I bought one right from the start. Thanks unimom for delivering the product as you said it was.
Love it, great pump
I've never been able to express milk but this pump is so different compared to others. I love it. Highly recommend.I only pump when I need to or if I need to leave my baby for a small amount of time so don't use it everyday. Very comfortable to use and I love that you can buy replacement parts at a reasonable price.
I was given this pump by my sister and think it’s great! I used a Medela with my first and this is more powerful.
It has powerful suction and the double makes it quicker. I didn’t find the breast massagers comfortable as I have large breasts but it still works well just a with the flanges.
My Son and I had a very difficult time breastfeeding due to extreamly sore nipples and my son not being able to latch properly. For a few weeks we where exclusively pumping with a single pump for hours at at time. This was beginning to become very hard, and was still extreamly painful for my nipples. As much as I didn't want to switch to formula we where considering it. My midwife gave me the details of this breast pump and it has been unbelievable! Saved me so much time, was allowing me to have let downs more quickly and was able to continue t...o feed my baby with my milk.whilst allowing my milk to continue to produce, and produce more to keep up with him. This pump is extreamly comfortable and due to this it had helped my nipples heal enough to be able to start breastfeeding my beautiful son again! Can't thank this company enough for the amazing support they have shown my family and we will forver be greatful!
Had supply issue with both babies, had to use a pump at the hospital then home to encourage milk supply (as well as the the baby ofcourse), this is just as good as the hospital one and used it for both babies, it’s comfortable, very hygiene as the parts can be sterilised in the microwave, and very good range of suction power that can be adjusted to suit. A real life saver!
Perfect & easy to carry anywhere
I bought this double breast pump in November 2014 and it served me for 6 months non stop. As my son was hospitalised many times during this period and on many occasions I wasn’t allowed to touch him. But due to this excellent pump I was still able to feed him my milk. As he was allergic to formula, I don’t know how we would have keep him alive without help of this pump. Thanks for serving me during my hard time. it’s very easy to clean & quick to fill 2 bottles at same time. It’s small machine to use for travelling, too.
Well made and sturdy.
Not sure how the comfort compares to other pumps as this is the only one I used. It was easy to use and clean. At one point I had it on the ground and accidentally kicked it and the valve snapped. I emailed unimom who replaced the valve for free and express posted it to me the next day. Excellent customer service!
I got this pump after having my second baby. With my first I used the medela swing single which was recommended to me at the time, I therefore thought that it was the best available on the market but boy was I wrong! For many months I struggled on with it unaware that there was a much better, more comfortable and efficient pump available on the market. With breastfeeding my second baby I dreaded the thought of using the medela again, even the sound of it makes me quiver! I'm so glad I found the unimom forte, it makes pumping a dream. Even as a double, it is quiet, very efficient and super comfortable. Definitely using it for future babies!
I bought my Unimom from Milkbar Breastpumps and I absolutely love it! it's easy to use, soft on your breasts, extracts an impressive amount of milk and it's pink!!! I have only just started using the pump for my newborn to bring my milk in and I cannot recommend this product enough.
good while it lasted
this pump was great it lt kept up my supply really well and it extracted so much milk. the double suction took away pressure from each though when you used them both at once. also it was hard leaning forward all the time otherwise the milk would leak out. it was good while it lasted it broke 2 times while i had it unfortunately in 1yr.
easy to clean and intruction easy to follow.
all the parts are very simple and comes with very soft color.
i used it 5x a day (30-40mins) for my baby girl, its very recommended as its very handy and easy to set up.
as the machine is small, its easy to carry around.
This is the best breast pump I've ever brought!!
Before I started using this breast pump I'd only get 80-110mls in 20minutes. My pump arrived yesterday and I've already got 300+mls stored in the freeze. I highly recommend this pump, best thing I've ever brought, and so easy to use.
Thank you to the lady's at Milkbar they are so friendly and amazing!! So inlove with this pump
Didn't work for me!!
I couldn't get any milk with this, nor the avent electric. Was too difficult using two at once and I had much more success with a medela hand held. The reason I suspect it gets so many good reviews was because it offered free products for a good review!! Well my babe is nearly 4 so that was a few years ago. But I didn't even keep it for my second.
Great pump and fantastic customer service!
I purchased a Unimom Forte pump from the Hospital Pharmacy where my baby was born. Unfortunately we were going to be separated as he needed specialist care in a hospital over an hour away. I needed a pump as soon as I was discharged from hospital. I was also just establishing my supply so needed something reliable, sturdy, compact and easy to use. I had done some research on pumps and knew that I wanted a closed system and the option to double pump. I wanted value for money too. Enter the Unimom Forte.
Fast forward to almost a year of easy u...se and it was clear that my pump was going to need a service. I sent an email to Uberebaby on a Saturday night and received a phone call on the following morning, a Sunday morning no less! Not only that, Eileen at Uberebaby arranged to drive to my work place on Monday to pick up the pump AND provide me with a loan pump! I don't know of any other company that would do that. I would have recommended the Unimom Forte before the utterly AMAZING customer service I received as it is a great pump BUT couple that with the service and you can't go wrong with this pump.
As good as Medala for far less
I bought this pump after borrowing a Medala from a friend and I can honestly say this pump is as good if not better, and it was a quarter of the price. As well, the Unimom can be used by different mums hygienically, which the Medala isn't. Suction is great, results were great, I was really happy with this pump.

The best breast pump I have ever used
I tried several breast pump and found this product. I have been breastfeeding my son for more than 1 year. The product is very powerful,with double electric pump. I can easily use the twin pump in one time. The price is reasonable.The only disadvantage is the product is a little heavy and not easy to carry.

Forte Unimom breast pump - Great Product and Value!
I bought the Forte - hospital grade breastpump 6 months ago just before my DS arrived. Being a FTM i had no experience with pumping or breastfeeding and really no knowledge of the pumps out there. I decided on this one as it came as a double/single pump also converting to a manual - on the go pump with the switch kit. It's so simple to use even converting to manual pump with ease. I don't know if any other pumps on the market that can do this!
I had nothing to compare my experience of pumping to until last month we had to take my son to the ho...
Questions & Answers
My unimom shield is hot when pumping. Is that normal cause the medela shield wasn’t?
The breast shield is made of plastic and should not be hot when pumping.
