    Love this breast pump, so easy to use, can use it anywhere, the tub is also handy for washing up little things and can also be used as a steriliser. Great pump ! Would definitely recommend.
    I would have liked to see in the instructions how to dismantle and wash all the bits as I wasn’t aware some of the bits came apart!

    I bought this to express occasionally so my husband could join in with feeding times. It was a handy machine to have but the more I used it my wrist payed for it! Definitely worth it for the small price when using occasionally but I would recommend an electric one if used more regularly.

    I bought this at a baby event and was expecting a lot due to the brand name. However, when I came to use it, it didn’t work. I tried numerous things but after a bit of googling, I found that a common fault is the valve. When I checked mine it wasn’t letting milk through and instead just collecting around the suction cup. My spare valve was missing. It should work with a new valve, but I decided to instead go for a different product.

    If you're planning to express full time, this can get quite tiring and you may get a tired wrist. However it worked for me for 6 weeks, pumping at least twice a day with a silicone collector on the other side at the same time. My baby had a tongue tie which was undiagnosed for 12 weeks and he struggled to feed. Additionally I was in a lot of pain when he tried so I expressed to feed him. This pump was so easy to use as I had a good supply. With low supply I'm not sure how well it would do. I liked that if we went out and someone else was driving I could express in the car on the go really discreetly and have a bottle full by the time we got where we were going. However as there is no carry pouch to help keep it sterile I ended up taking it in a lunchbox. Which wasn't the end of the world but it would be better if there was a bag it could go in to keep it clean in my handbag.

    I have a different electric breast pump which is my go to! HOWEVER I chose to buy this set for the travel steriliser which is fab! As the pump is compact it is handy to take out and about should I need to express. Milk storage pots are ideal if only expressing a little (or in the early days) as they slot inside the bottle before screwing onto the pump.
    However I don’t find this the easiest pump to use considering I have bigger breasts than most! The silicone shell is simply not big or supportive enough for my ample bosom!

    As a first time mum i wanted to express for when we were out and about as I haven't the confidence to breast feed in public. The feeding set came with all the essentials at a low cost and came in it's own little box making storing and keeping everything together much easier, however the product does have a few flaws the pump can be leaky at times meaning that when you unlatch it from your boob you often find you are covered in a bit of breast milk, it is time consuming and some days I found myself expressing for around 45 minutes at a time which isn't convenient when you are in a rush.

    I found the pump not very strong on this and would hardly get any milk. Ended up switching to a Madela in the end as I got so fed up. Was ideal for on the go (emergency pumping) on a long drive or in Mac Donald’s toilets 🤣

    I purchased this product as I was set on breastfeeding but wanted to express aswell to allow Dad to feed.
    First of all, the pump is amazing. No pain during pumping and very easy to use. It can be a little fiddly to put it together after sterilising but other than that no issues.
    I find the bottles are not great for babies who are breastfed. My son could not get on with these teats so we have ended up using the mam bottles instead which he took too straight away.
    The breastpads were also no good for me as I had them on for 30 minutes and has leaked through them. I can wear the lansinoh ones for 6 hours with no troubles.
    The steriliser is big enough for just these items so if you wanted to put more items in I would advise getting a bigger steriliser.

    All in all, the pump is amazing. I wouldn’t bother with the rest of it (although the bottle is essential to pump into)

    Bqrgain for what it is. The pump is good for the odd occasion, but not too handy if pumping every day as it is very time consuming (pumping always is). Very compact which makes storage east. Good product if not used every day.

    It’s good for when your out and can’t get to electric if you use an electric pump or don’t actually use you boob to feed directly at all then it’s small enough to go in your bag but it hurt my boobs so swapped to electric at home before then going in to formula

    I used a more expensive make whilst in hospital that was perfect but too expensive. I bought this pump as a 'just in case' and also have the electric version. It fits onto the bottles easily and is very simple to use. The main problem i have with it is cleaning, i either can't figure out how to take it apart properly or the top section stores milk/water and doesn't easily release it. I have even tried two rounds in the dishwasher.

    Second time I have used this as both my electric pumps broke and I bought this as a back up. Express great and the mini steriliser is great for travelling and when you just need to clean things fast.
    The downside is that it can’t catch all the milk and isn’t great if your going to express full time.

    I used this while my son had jaundice so I could give him breast milk top ups after a feed. I found when I took the pump away from my boob I would be covered in milk so I always needed tissue to wipe myself. I found the suction wasn’t the best and it was very fiddly to clean. Wish I spent the money on an electric one as the manual is hard work when you have a newborn.

    Overall this bundle is worth the money for all you get it's definitely worth a but for breastfeeding mums. My first time breastfeeding and I am very happy with this I get 4oz milk off in about 5 mins so my hand doesn't ache and it collects most of the milk just get the odd splash.

    Great idea.
    However, pumping for ages and nothing is in the bottle, move it away from your boob and be covered in your own breast milk😂
    Not easy to clean either.

    Very good product, I've used this for 2 of my children now, amazing wide teat making transition from breastfeeding to bottle easier. The small air flow holes in the teat used to be a little harder to clean when using formula however not a problem when used for water/juice/cows milk.

    I bought this as a starting point to expressing. I've used Tommee Tippee products with my first child so this was the brand for me. Has everything you need to get you started with expressing dand storing milk without breaking the bank.
