great pump! Better than Medela!

published

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.

Awesome product

published

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

published

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

published

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.

Excellent pump!

published

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.
Highly recommend.

Life Saver!

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

published

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.

published

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!

Highly recommend!

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

published

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.

This is the best breast pump I've ever brought!!

published

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!!

published

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.

As good as Medala for far less

published

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

published

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.

Hi there. I am deciding on a breast pump and thinking of getting this one. I just wanted to check if this pump is suitable for someone that will be relying on a breat pump 100% so pumping more thn 5 times a day.

DONNA Y.asked

I seem to have an issue with the milk pumping up instead of Into the bottle? It's not everytime and if I change the lid, rubber circle and plastic base it works fine. It's weird though because I'm replacing it in exactly the same position and then the milk goes into the bottle.

I hope this makes sense, just not sure where I'm going wrong?

Thanks
Donna
