    If you buy off eBay it states there is a delay but you can contact them to see if you can get sooner postage

    Unimom are supposed to be fantastic. I've done a lot of research as I'll need one when I go back to work and they look great.
    I had a Swing too, and hated it. Didn't work for me and I found mold inside it within three weeks even though it was lucky to get 30ml per breast per session.

    Oh my that's terrible! I won't complain about nearly 2 weeks!

    Have you emailed them? I sent an email asking if it had been sent 1 week 1 day after I placed the order...... Got an email that afternoon saying it had been sent that day

    eta: I purchased off the main website, and it wasn't the pump they are saying is a bit delayed.

    I have the swing and haven't had this issue yet. Is there any chance it could have just been a certain batch??

    I do only usually get 30-40ml if I'm lucky though, but I always struggled with supply so put it down to that.

    I can't really afford to spend another $250 on a new pump this time

    i think its cos its an open system - I have had big let downs a few times and it flushed back into the machine.

    would never buy one again!

    You can clean out the Swing if milk gets into it - I panicked the first time I got milk sucked into it and Googled what to do (thought I had ruined it!!). You run soapy water through the tubing and wash and dry the sponge in there. I have had milk sucked in several times in the past 6 months, washed it out afterwards and there is no sign of mould or dirt inside.
