This manual breast pump is my back-up when my electric pumps died on me the minute I was about to use them before going to the office. I bought the pumps (for the price initially) for these eventualities and it actually worked well and impressed me. The pumps have soft suction and the adaptor fits all of the baby bottle brands that I have. It also comes handy when I'm traveling to an area where an utlet might not be available and I have to feed my bub. Itits other wide neck bottles which gives ease in my feeding bub anywhere. It is also easy to clean as it can be left over at a dishwasher and expect it to be clean after a short rinse. It is also easy to assemble or dismantle during use and non-use.
I was always told to get a back up breast pump and this was what I decided to purchase. I love that it's lightweight and I am able to bring it around with me, at work or outdoors. I thought that the breast pump and the accessories that come with it are great, I was able to use the travel seal and just store the bottle in the fridge. I like the option of the bottle being a sippy cup but I have not yet tried it. The bottle adaptor is very useful because I have different brands of baby bottles I use and the silicon shield is comfortable, and it doesn't hurt when expressing milk.
This is a breastpump I use a lot, I have found expressing manually better these days. Also, it can fit several brand of bottles I have tried because of the adjustable collar. It is easy to use and easy to handle. I like that right after I express, I can just unscrew and attach a teat so my bub could feed (sometimes I just store the milk by putting the travel seal and keeping it in the fridge). The problems I had with other manual pumps were with the silicone shield, the one that came with this is comfortable and fits well. This pump has helped me express easily.
This breastpump is very diverse and can be used in a lot of situations. I use it as my back up breastpump and I bring it a lot. It is not difficult to express milk and the silicone shield is comfortable. It comes with a Bottle Adaptor in case you use other bottles, i've tried using a few but the bottle that comes with it is very useful. After expressing I can either feed my bub or store it with the travel seal. I am yet to try to convert it as a sippy cup but I am excited to know it can be used for that. A good find for me!
