Professional looking box. I did find the instructions fairly difficult to follow. Difficult to assemble as instructions unclear. The suction of this breast pump was Comfortable compared to own breast pump. Expressing took the expected amount of time using manual breast pump. Not that easy to see while expressing- similar to other pumps. For a manual breast pump this is effective. This is a portable breast pump, but if it came in a carrycase it would be easier and more hygienic to take with you if necessary. Found this easy to clean. All the parts required to be sterilised fitted into my steriliser. This pump is good value for money. A few improvements suggested would be Clearer quantity marks on bottle, carrycase, improved instructions. I would consider purchasing this pump now I have been using it for a while. I would recommend as Comfortable and has different shells.  Emily Crombie – Emelia, Felicity & Charlotte – 4.5 Months

My initial impressions were good; the packaging meant that you could see all the parts of the pump before even opening the box, however once open, the individual parts felt quite ‘plasticity’. Assembly took me a while to work out, and the instructions were minimal. The product benefits from having multiple breast shells to suit the individual, although this requires quite a bit of customising to find the right fit, this took me a few days to find the right fit, I struggled to get the soft insert to fit and therefore operate properly and ended up using the hard shell only. The pump benefits from a multiple handle position, again easing customisation of the pump to the individual. This was the first time I had used a manual pump, I struggled to get the volume of breast milk that I could from my electric pump and my hand hurt by the time I had half the volume. Although the pump small and portable and therefore was useful for travelling with and when trying to pump discretely. There is minimal assembly instructions, I struggled to assemble the product the right way the first few times, and as the instructions were in multiple languages felt that there wasn’t enough room to dedicate to clear step by step assembly instructions. The usage instructions suffer from the same point as above, there is minimal usage instructions, although it did clearly state about recommended breast shells to try first. My initial few attempts to assemble the pump were fraught, (the children were about at the time and I was easily distracted). The initial assembly of the product would benefit from time to familiarise yourself with the parts in a peaceful and non-distracting environment. Although once I had familiarised myself the product is easy to assemble. Once assembly is mastered, disassembly is easy. I found the suction of the pump quite weak, I was used to using an electric pump, and therefore a fairly firm suction, customising the pump for the right breast shell for the individual is key. Suction can be improved by pumping harder, although I felt that I had to pump quite vigorously (and unsustainably) for a period to achieve the suction I was used to from an electric pump. This was the first time that I had used a manual pump, although I was not expecting to get as much as my electric pump, I did struggle to get close to the full volume that get from my electric pump and my hand ached by the time that I was half way to this volume. It therefore took longer to pump then I had been used to. The collection bottle is clear and therefore was easy to see the volume of breast milk expressed, this pump also does not suffer from the back fill of milk into the pump that my electric pump suffers from at times. As a pump, it does as advertised. Although I don’t feel this is as efficient as the electric pump that I own and wouldn’t expect it to. It’s small and portable, and is not very noisy, (just the occasional plastic clicking of parts) and therefore discrete to be able to express at work. The pump was very useful when I was travelling (visiting family for a few nights) as needed minimal infrastructure. Cleaning was easy, some parts are small and easy to lose, but this was to be expected. Although I have known other pumps to come with its own sterilising box, was a little disappointed that this didn’t. As a manual breast pump this is value for money. Instructions could be less busy and more step by step for the assembly. I would recommend if looking for a reasonably priced manual pump. A simple hand pump that can be customised easily to suit the individual but lacks the suction and effectiveness I was used to. Useful for travelling and discrete pumping (work), which was my only preferred use for the product. Not a product I wanted to use on a daily basis.

Nice colours, big storage bottle and accessories. Easy to assemble, different sizes to choose from. Instructions very clear Easy and simple to use. Assembly simple, not too many parts. Simple to take apart but can be difficult to clean. Suction fine and comfortable once you get the hang of it, rhythm. Took quite a while to stimulate milk flow. Clear bottle showing amount of milk expressed. I found this breast pump tiring to use. This is a portable breast pump. Quite easy to clean and sterilise. The parts needing to be sterilised fitted into my steriliser. Good value for a manual pump. The design is good. It is a fine manual pump but it does take a while to stimulate milk flow and feel from experience an electric pump is more efficient for me personally. Kaman Yau – Macie 4 Months

I would recommend as Comfortable and has different shells.
