Many will tell you to never buy a manual pump, but honestly, I've had NO problems with this. It has served well, and works well too. It's portable as well, so it's convenient.
I didn't like this and ended up giving it away and getting an electric pump. It took forever to pump my milk and i just didn't have the time for it.
I suppose some new mommys need this . Usually by the time mommy and baby go home from hospital the milk flow is adequate for baby. Therefore a pump is really not needed. Also, a mommy can express milk herself to store in bottles for when needed.Not a necessary item at all.....
The most amazing manual breast pump, when all other failed at home this one produced milk the easiest and fastest. It really was a life saver when i needed a break, or just to have someone else feed in the night.
This was the one i used in the very beginning of breastfeeding and also on a go. Its very compact. Overall I preferred the electric one tho.
I bought this and it worked well. It hurt when I first tried it but once I got use to it, it worked great. It was easy to do, liked that I could pump it into the bottle then feed my baby. I also like that it was manual, I didn't have the fear that it would malfunction and the price was great, cheaper than all the other pumps.
I have tried other brands and have found them uncomfortable and expensive however when I tried this pump it was comfortable and it was painless. I am not dreading pumping anymore and happy to use this pump time after time.
I'm going to be completely honest here. When I first used it, it hurt like a cow. Painful swollen nips are not fun but after quite a few try's 10 and some coaxing from my wonderful mother and boyfriend I kept at it. The suction is pretty good and once you are used to it you can get a decent amount in a good amount of time. It's more comfortable than others because of it's cushiony inside despite my hard time in the beginning. This was the first pump I owned and it's my fall back though I would recommend getting the electric one if you plan to pump everyday, and/or for more than just one sitting. It's easy to put together and also pretty easy to clean, you can just shove it all in the dish washer or wash by hand which I liked. This is good for first time mums who are expressing milk. Oh and a lil tip* lightly lubricate your areola with some olive oil, it'll help, a lot!*
This breast pump is A-MA-ZING!! I tried a lot of them before (I had so little milk production that it was really difficult to get some milk out of there...) and this one worked just fine without causing any pain or discomfort. It is worth every penny I paid for it (and I think that the price is pretty reasonable!) and I would recommend it to everyone. The only product I find is better than that are electric pump, but the price is not as affordable...
