Rated 5 out of 5 by MOMof4 14 years and 4 babies!
That pretty much sums it up. I have had this hand pump for all 4 of my children ranging from 14 years to 4 months and still love it. The children all breastfed for 2 years while I was a full time working mom. It has more suction than my fancy double electric pump and is so easy to pack along anywhere. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by fiona68 This product is easy to use
I must admit my first few attempts was terrible and there was no suction at all and i had used an avent pump with my older children and it was fine and i couldnt understand what was wrong and even thought of buying a electric one,,but it turned out it was my own stupidity because after 3 months I found the wee rubber valve in bottom of box (which the older pumps didnt have and i didnt bother looking at instructions as id used one before) and i couldnt figure out what it was for but once i worked it out i found the pump fantastic and the suction great, i can fill a 4oz bottle in under 5 mins or while im having a cuppa, i would definately recommend this pump, but dont be a dunce like me and make sure you put the valve in lol

Rated 4 out of 5 by DeeDeeDearest The only one that worked!
I bought this pump almost 8 years ago when my daughter was an infant. I had already gone through an electric pump that didn't work and two manual pumps from different companies that both broke on me.
My nipples are small and slightly inverted, but this pump worked with me anyway! I took it to work with me every day because it was quiet, efficient, and came with a discreet carrying case. I loved it then, and when baby 2 is born in a couple of months, I plan to use it again!
The only downside was that you pump directly into a bottle. It's hard to switch bottles midway through pumping without spraying everywhere. I recommend getting an 8 oz. bottle to use for pumping, in case you have more in your breasts than you anticipated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bronson36 very disappointed
This pump claims you dont have to lean forward and can sit back comfortably but after a couple of squeezes of the handle the milk is leaking out of the bottom and so the cup gets wet and loses suction meaning I have to keep stopping to wipe the cup and myself. This is really frustrating as it means milk is getting wasted. I think the suction cup is made for those with very large breasts/nipples. Like others I've also noticed that the handle has started to squeak loudly. Wish I had spent abit more and got a different brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Amelia Tiny bottle makes it useless
This pump is pointless as the new version has such a tiny bottle. It only holds 4oz, but I usually produce 6 or 7oz from one breast; the older version took 9oz, why change it?
There is no way anyone would want to stop half-way through each side to empty the bottle, plus it's not then possible to use outside home. You might be able to attach a larger bottle but would have to buy one separately. I returned this as soon as I'd opened the box and realised it was impossible to use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by anna7 very disappointed
I bought this pump in December a few days after my daughter was born. The pump was working very well the fist two days but the third day it didn't have info suction to pump and stoped working. So I decided to take it back to the store I purchase it from but told me they couldn't do anything sbout it wss very disappointed because I didn't have info money to purchase a new one. This product had a lot of very good reviews thats the reson I purchase it and great price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DeeDee Doesn't work well for me
I have attempted to use this pump but found it very difficult to actually get any milk out. I have had better luck hand expressing. This could be because I have larger nipples and it seems as though it may be too tight for the milk to flow. I do like the bottle that it comes with but that is all the use I have gotten out of it. I have used a medela electric pump at the breastfeeding clinic with no problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lrebecca Easy to use but so noisy!
I found this pump to be very comfortable and easy to use. I managed to express a fairly good amount quickly. However, the noise it makes really ruins it for me. I bought it for expressing when out and about away from my baby, but I can't bear to use it out of the house because it squeaks so loudly.
