                This is a great hand pump for occasional use. I got two of these in the hospital with tubing to connect to the Medela Harmony hospital grade pump. Mine came with the medium flanges (24 mm) but you can get other sizes for a more comfortable fit if needed. As with all manual pumps, if you're going to be using it daily, it's probably worth your money to invest in a cheap electric pump like the Medela swing. This was much more comfortable for me until I got used to the electric pump.

                  I love this little manual pump!  I found it extremely user friendly.  The innovative letdown function is great!  It is compact and easy to clean and very ergonomic to use.

                    I got my first medela manual pump as a gift from my midwife back in 2005 and recieved another one as a gift after I had my second baby in 2007.  Both times it was a disaster.  

                     

                    First off, the cone/funnel is too small for a larger breast, even when you take off the cover -- it says it's adjustable for larger and smaller breasts but mine only adjusted DOWN with little inserts and I really needed it to adjust UP!  The circumference was just not wide enough to support enough ...

                      if you primarily nurse, but want to make sure that there is human milk available when you are away for limited periods, this is really all that you need.  the suction easily produces let down at your own pace.  for my purposes, sometimes 3-5 times a day and up to 2 days a week, i was able to ensure that my daughter never needed a supplement while i was away.  it worked perfectly for me for almost a year a...

                        This pump has worked amazingly for me. The suction was very good, and I love the fact that it comes with storage bottle, and nipples for the bottles for use. We didn't bottle feed much, but when mommy needed a glass of wine, or an evening out, this was my saving grace.

                        I stored the pump for a while, and upon taking it back out, discovered the suction wasn't as good as before. Not sure if I stored it wrong, or I need to replace a part or what. I will tackle that hurdle when I have anot...
