                I get a lot more milk using this pump than either of the electric pumps (both Medela) I tried. I'm not sure if it's their special 'let down cushion' on the cup, or just that I can get more using a hand pump. So I love that about it. However, if you use this pump make sure it comes with the 'IQ valve', which looks like a plug, and NOT the flat, disc-shaped valve with an asterisk on it. That one gets sucked through each and every time, multiple times. It falls into the milk and has to be fishe...

                  I love my ISIS manual breast pump, it is hands down in my opinion an easier to use pump for any mother who is pumping for their little one.  It is easier to take to work and store as it often fit easily into my work bag with several bottles, instead of forcing me to carry my electric pump day in and day out.  A previous poster noted difficulties with the flat disk valve and I have never had any of the troubles of the valve popping out while pumping, except if I had too much pressure bu...

                    This just didn't work for me. I know it's supposed to have good reviews, but I really could express better by hand.  I found it uncomfortable, messy, and honestly kind of useless. 

                     

                    I had no problems with an electric pump given to me by the milk bank I sent my extra milk to.

                      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 cle...

                        I'm SAHM so I didn't need a really great / electric pump, just something to get a few ounces now and then for if my husband and I wanted to go out by ourselves for a few hours.  I really like this pump.  It was really cheap, like 20 bucks.  It's easy to put together and take apart for cleaning.  I haven't had any trouble with the "asterisk-shaped" flat valve.  It is a manual pump so yeah, after a while your hand gets tired, but it's great for using just every once in a while.  It's pre...
