Pros: Easy to take apart/clean/reassemble, Pumps milk quickly/easily, Great for on the go, Compact/portable, Great for the price
Cons: Manual - so have to pay attention to what you're doing!
I loved my little hand pump, but I ended up donating it instead of saving it after I was done using it. Now, I wish I saved it! Oh, well. I could pump my milk so fast with this!! Since I was manually pumping the milk, I could control the speed and intensity. The soft silicone on the breast-shield helps to massage the breast and encourage let-down. The times I was most glad to have my pump was when I was out without my baby and my breasts were so sore and tight from not breastfeeding. This was really great to relieve the pressure. And then I could save the milk for the next time I was out! I highly recommend this simple-to-use, reliable hand pump for anyone who's planning on breastfeeding. If you plan to pump everyday, you might want to invest in an electric pump.
