Expresses milk quickly; Reasonable price

Noisy; Shortish battery life

Pregnant women are often told “breast is best” and breastfeeding is highly promoted by midwives and health visitors alike. When I was pregnant with Jacob I decided I would like to give breastfeeding a go and see how I got on although I was staying open minded. With a holiday, a hen night and a...

First time round I didn't buy a breast pump as my son was completely uninterested in the idea of breastfeeding, preferring a bottle from virtually day 1. My baby daughter, on the other hand, latched on straight away and five months on, she is still exclusively breastfed. After six weeks, I...

Good

Efficient

The noise is like a JCB

I bought this pump before our son was born, intending to breastfeed but also express every now and again to allow my hubbie to do some of the night feeds. Then 2 things happened: firstly, my son and I proved to be an appalling pair at breastfeeding. He couldn't seem to latch on properly, couldn't...

“No more hand cramp”

published 12/01/2007

Small, lightweight and easy to use

Motor is quite noisy, lousy instructions

I'll start with a little of my backstory: I had my first child just four months ago, and in that time, I have come to depend on my pump. As many mums will tell, the first few weeks of breastfeeding can be hell and mine were no different. After the first few days, which went quite well, we than...

“Breastfeeding essential!”

published 28/10/2004

Quick and effective milk expression

Can't microwave sterilise it

As any new mum will know, the first few weeks of breastfeeding can be complete hell. After 4 days of trying my hardest to successfully breastfeed my baby my nipples were red raw, particularly so on one side which felt like it was going to drop off if I let my baby anywhere near it! Tearful but...

“Pump It Up, Daisy”

published 21/10/2004

Easy to assemble and use and very efficient

A little bit noisy

When my baby was born 5 months ago, we quickly found out that he wasn't taking enough breast milk from me - bless him, he was falling asleep before he had a chance to fill his tummy. So, my midwife suggested that I use a breast pump to express some milk off, and that I give him 20 ml in a small...

IT'S A BIT NOISY!

Tired of using a manual breast pump I decided to bite the bullet and pay the extra cost for an electric breast pump. Surely it had to be better, after all, it would be quicker to express as your hand wouldn't get so tired. I went along to my local baby stores, both Boots and Mothercare had the...

“A Noisy Necessity!”

published 15/08/2003

Easy to Use and Faster than a Manual Pump

Noisy and components not suitable to microwave

I intended from before I gave birth to express milk to enable my family to help with feeding. I originally bought a manual pump but after speaking to friends took this back and exchanged it for the Medela. This was a higher cost at £39.99 compared to £20 for a manual pump but I considered time...

My daughter was born nine weeks early- I had to express my breast milk as she was being feed through a tube. Unfortunately I was only able to produce a little breast milk, as i was ill myself- and i only managed this due to the Medela Mini Electric Breast Pump. My sister used to be a midwife and...

Effective, adjustable suction, 1-handed operation

VERY noisy, small bottle means decanting required

My little girl (currently 6mths) was exclusively breast fed until 4months old, I however had to return to work when she was just 4 weeks old so I bought a breast-pump..or rather I bought 2. I started with the much recommended ISIS hand operated, try as I did I could not manage to get more than...

Noisy!!

I think it is fair to say that I was prepared and planned for Aleyna's birth. I spent the last 2 months of my pregnancy nesting, organising, obsessing, much to my husband's delight as I am normally a little slovenly!! However nothing could have prepared us for Aleyna spending 2 weeks in intensive...

“Excellent Results!!”

published 19/03/2004

EXCELLENT SUCTION

COST

Initially I bought an Avent Isis to use when my baby was first born, which was fine when your breasts are full or engorged and the milk flows easily. I found though that once my baby was settled into a routine it became more difficult to produce a let-down using the Avent Isis. So I decided to by...

EASY TO USE AND QUICK

IT IS NOISY, DOES'NT DRAIN MILK COMPLETELY

MY FIRST DAUGHTER WOULD NOT TAKE TO BREAST FEEDING. I WANTED TO START HER OFF AS BEST AS I COULD, SO I EXPRESSED FOR 3 MONTHS. I TRIED A MAWS HAND PUMP. IT TOOK AGES TO PRODUCE AN OUNCE LET ALONE A FEED! IT WAS DIFFICULT AND VERY TIME CONSUMING. I THEN FOUND THE MEDELA ELECTRIC BREAST PUMP, MY...

No more tired hands

Could be quieter

I have used the hand held breast pumps before and found that they alwasy break on me. I can also never get enough milk from them. With my last baby I decided to spend the extra money and purchase a meleda mini electric breast pump. It cost me £42.95 from Boots and worth every single penny. It is...

I'm sure if you have a smaller breast then this might be a good pump for you, but having my breasts swell to a 42J cup this did nothing for me at all. I found the breast cup piece did not sit well at all and the suction was terrible. It didn't hug the breast as well as a hand held version nor did...
