    I bought this after being tired of manually pumping milk. This happened to be on sale at boots for £54, I Sent my partner out to get it and I was off. It took very little time to get use to assemble, clean and sterilise. It comes with a sterilising box, which you just add water to and then microwave. It fit well and comfortably. The pump has 4 setting, so you have control on the suction. It is a little noisy, but for the nature of the device it’s expected. I just wouldn’t use it in a room with a sleeping baby! Definitely recommend.

    I brought this pump as I heard good thing about the brand. I was looking forward to use it.
    The overall set up of the pump was nice and easy. I did find that it was a noise pump and other know you were pumping.
    I did find that as I have bigger boobs that it would leak out the bottom of the funnel and I couldn't work out what I was doing to cause it.
    Overall it a good little pump, but just didn't work out for me.

    Great wee pump, does what it's meant to.
    I do find that it can be quite noisy and when using it not plugged in the batteries do seem to die quickly. Though I wish it was a double pump it does a good job emptying the breasts and collecting milk, like a pump should!

    I love this pump, I bought it after losing part of my old one which was discontinued and I found this one easier to take apart and put back together for cleaning etc, my only problem is my little one doesn’t like tommee tippee bottles so I have had to go buy a different brand but I still use this and just decant the milk into the bottle she likes

    Glad that I bought this breast pump. Hadn’t done much research but saw it on offer and bought it. Great value for money (when reduced) wouldn’t have paid full price for it. Very easy to use. Very quickly expresses and like how you can have different strengths for pumping. Not too noisy at all either.

    I have used this recently for my Son and got on with it really well. It's easy to use and I like that the sterilisation process was just as simple. It took the hard work out of breastfeeding when your a busy mum it's a great product to have. I also loved the fact that you can use it with batteries and not the plug so this made it extremely helpful if your out and about and need to Express at any time. Would recommend!

    Bought this for around £50 and loved it from the start. Came with a handy box to keep everything together. Was easy to set up. Liked that it was portable by using batteries so meant I could take it to a concert I was going to and pump in the car before and after it as I was away from baby for most of the day. The only thing I found annoying was the air tube would come lose quite easily. Its quite noisy but became white noise to me as I used it that much. Can’t recommend this product enough if you are wanting an affordable pump that gives you the option to take out and about.

    I use this to pump when I feel a bit full. I got it as the manual didn't work for me. It's easy to set up and use and the variable settings make it good for all levels of pumping. I sometimes find the silicone cup uncomfortable if you position it wrong.

    The breast pump firstly is noisy, like have to turn the TV up kind of noisy which isn’t great when you have a new born trying to sleep. The breast shield only comes in one size which doesn’t fit all, this can cause milk leakage! I do however like the ease of use with the suction levels.

    I'll wouldn't recommend this. I don't think it is very good at all. The suction is poor and it didn't extract much milk at all from my breasts. It doesn't have as many settings as other pumps.

    Absolutely love this product. I had a C section and struggled to get my daughter to latch properly even though there was plenty of milk. I was bruised and sore and on the verge of giving up when my husband bought this pump. Having this meant I could express the over abundant milk, relieve the discomfort of full breasts and my husband could feed her at night allowing me to sleep. The pump is a comfortable fit, easy to disassemble and sterilise and the controls are big buttons that you operate with one hand to increase suction. Just buy it.

    After borrowing a pump from the hospital for 4 weeks I then bought this pump. I found it really noisy and I couldn’t see the milk coming out like I could with the hospital pump. I found I only got about 2oz in total from this pump after getting maybe 6/7oz from the hospital pump. I didn’t use the box for sterilising, I just used the Milton bucket we have for the bottles. I’d recommend investing in a hospital grade pump if you are wanting to express for a while.

    This is the first breast pump I’ve used as I didn’t want to spend too much money incase I didn’t get on with the sensation!
    I’ve found it really easy to get on with and the microwaveable case has made it easy for to pump on the go while at work. No need for a full sterilising unit! I love that it can be battery operated so you’re not stuck in the corner near the plug socket and it’s very easy to use at work or on the go
    It’s very easy to assemble once you’ve got your head past the baby brain and all the parts (I’m rather slick and fast at it now and only 5 weeks into my pumping experience)
    My one problem is it’s quite noisy and easy to start - I’ve have two or three incidents where people can hear the pump going in my bag leaving me diving to try and switch it off. But I guess most electric ones are!

    I found it hard to establish breastfeeding when my little one was born and so used this product around 4 - 6 times a day. This pump has 3 strength settings to allow you to slowly build up the suction which made pumping way more comfortable. You can plug it into the mains in the wall or you can use batteries which is perfect for pumping while on the go. I used to use batteries when wanting to tidy up around the house. Thanks to this pump i was able to produce a great amount of milk for my little one. Will definitely use this pump again for my future children.

    I purchased the Tommee Tippee pump not knowing how often I would be using it. I think this pump is great for occasional use, excellent value for money and it does what it says on the tin! However I think there are more efficient pumps on the market.
    It is very easy to put together and I like the fact it is battery and mains operated. The suction tube often pops out of the pump itself but not hard to get back in, just irritating.
    Definitely recommend for occasional use and to increase milk supply but not if you intend to exclusively pump or pumping everyday.

    I ended up having to buy another breast pump as I felt this didn't work very well. The suction wasn't great, didn't express much if anything! My sister bought this recently and had the same experience. We wouldn't recommend.

    This is my first breast pump and I was quite apprehensive about using an electric one but it is easy to use, a bit fiddly to put together the first time but you soon get the hang of it and the different speeds are great.

    My only weakness of this product is that it is quite noisy but at the same time I think this is a feature of most pumps for this price range so it’s up to you how important that is. My little one doesn’t bat an eye lid.

    This product is good, but not great as it's quite loud which is a pain when it comes to a sleeping baby! But it has got great accessories with it, and a nifty box to steralise and store in! There is 3 different suction settings, which is good depending on the person.

    I bought this pump to try and up my supply, it I ended up taking it back as it was terrible. I stuck to my Avent manual pump.
    I bought this pump on offer at Tesco for 1/2 price, I would have been mortified at paying full price. I found the pump flange far too small and I have small breasts/nipples.
    It’s a shame that it isn’t a good pump as it comes with lots of accompanying parts, microwave sterilisers to clean it in, bottle and a pair of tongues.
    I would just simply avoid as there are much better electric pumps out there. One of which I would recommend is the Medela Swing pump.

    A very handy and simple pump. A little too simple maybe as only has a few settings. It’s great for the once in a while pump but not built for an everyday thing. A little pricey for a single pump too. It is very comfortable too with the silicone flanges and easy to clean and put together

    Hate to start with a negative but it’s very loud, my partner hated how noisy it was when I used it, and also very awkward to assemble once it has been cleaned which is a shame when you’re in a rush,
    Other than that it’s a great product, 3 different settings for pumping, and very easy to use and get the hang of, also a great price!

    We bought this product after a stressful start to breastfeeding and the manual I couldnt get to grips with. It helped me realise pumping was easier with sore nipples and I was able to bridge the gap between poor latching and successful feeding. Despite the noisy pumping sound it worked really well to ease pumping into my routine. Very easy to clean and stored in it's own box. Of course there is the wires but I knew I didn't need a wireless version as I would pump whilst feeding on opposite side. It's a great pump. Eventually the manual became easier for a quick pump but I'd still choose to sit down with my electric for those rare few moments just to sit down and not be bothered by the husband as it's important to have a calm atmosphere

    I love this breast pump I had to exclusively pump for my baby as she wouldn't latch for the first week and so i used it a lot. It worked really well and I was able to pump enough to give her exclusive breast milk. Downside it the motor sounds like it moos so not great for the self esteem when you are exhausted and already feel like a milk machine
