This is the only manual pump I have owned as I have electric pump. I am not convinced to try other manual pump because I fear others will just be the same as how this functions. For first few days this worked well and the suction was actually great, however thereafter it actually wasn't very functional, I can barely get 30ml even if my breast feels full and switching to my electric pump I will be getting a lot which goes to show that this manual pump is faulty. I tried to reach out to lansinoh at which they replied and said that the small white cusp inside that goes at the bottom of the top hand pump gets ripped or may have hole then it won't work. However this is already my second purchase of the product and it happened the same, for couple of days it reduced suction power that quick. Therefore it may have something in its design that is doing this.
This is a brilliant manual pump, which produces just as much milk as an electric pump if you’re happy to put in the effort.
I have the Medela electric breasts pump which is brilliant, but it is a bit noisy so I can’t really use it at night without disturbing my husband. I’ve also tried using the electric pump in batteries without the cable but it doesn’t work as well so it’s fiddly to move around to different rooms. The manual pump is silent and really portable (aside from having to sterilise it between uses). I’ve even used it in the car (as a passenger of course!) when we’ve been on the motorway meaning I had a fresh bottle for when we stopped at services.
The only tiny downside is that it doesn’t come with a carry case but I just use the one that cane with my electric pump.
Overall I’m impressed with how much milk I’m able to pump using this, and relatively quickly too. The only difference is the convenience of not having to manually pump with the electric pump.
I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to pump and would suggest trying this over expensive electric pumps if you’re unsure whether pumping is for you.
I've tried quite a few pumps now, and of the manual ones this was middle of the line. The best part about it is there aren't too many pieces to clean making it easy to take out and about but I didn't find it that effective.
This pump is brilliant, I started using it about 3 weeks and it really helped increase my supply. It's lightweight, easy to clean and effective at removing milk. Works well with lansinoh bags which attach to pump.
