Great little pump!

Posted

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...

Best manual pump for me

Posted

Pros: Easy to use, very effective, quick let down

Cons: valves must be replaced OFTEN

This was the best pump for me, at the time I had tried several pumps, including a manual medela, electric medela double pump, a first years pump, and a Gerber pump.     I experienced NO PAIN with this pump -- my suggestion is that if you are larger in the breast area like me to remove the silicone thing and just use the pump without it.       I had QUICK let downs with this pump too and not a single issue - it's small enough you can even pump under your clothes.  I did have to replace the valve's quite often, sometimes once every two days once I went back to work for optimum efficiency.  I would definitely recommend this pump!    ...

Used while working full-time and loved it!

Pros: Was very easy to use, I really felt it emptied my breasts

Cons: Can be slightly annoying if you're using two at a time.

I've had a great experience with this pump.  I initially bought it so that I could use it for a date night with DH and had planned on buying a "real" pump once I went back to work.  However, it worked out so well for me (and I got a second one free from a friend) that I just used both of them when I went back to work.  The thing I can think of to complain about at all is that it does take a bit of coordination if you're pumping on both sides at one time! Beyond that I had no complaints.   I'm pregnant with my second right now and have already bought two new ones for when I go back to work (my old pumps were used quite a bit and since buying new ones...

had it and liked it

Posted

Pros: small and easy to use

Cons: too many pieces to clean

Every time I pumped it was a slow start, but once my milk let out IT WOULD FLOW!  I used this pump at work, I liked that it was small enough to fit into my lunch bag with room to spare.  It was comfortable to use, I guess due to the "soft petal" thing, but I never used any other breast pumps because I got this one for free.  I don't know how it compares to other brands or styles.    The only thing I didn't like about it was that there were lots of small parts to clean.  I don't have a dishwasher, so that was a definite drawback.  I used this back in 07, and am due to have my second LO in feb/mar, I've been shopping for a pump and they...
