Rated 4 out of 5 by Lepbmc Worth it if pumping is frustrating
I hesitated to buy a manual pump for a few months because I thought I might not use it. Wrong! I hate lugging around my double electric "just in case" so I finally decided to get this pump. So glad I did! I use it at night if baby sleeps longer and I need relief. I've used it at work when I didn't want to stop to get out the double electric. Easy to use in the car. I always attach one of the bigger bottles though - 9oz I believe?
The only drawback I see is sometimes the milk runs down the flange instead of into the bottle and my bra gets pretty wet by the time I notice. I'm working on the right angle to get that to stop.

After three kids this has to be my favorite manual pump. It's super comfortable and affordable . I love that I can sit comfortable to pump I don't have to lean forward!

I loved having this pump as a back up with me daily! If I couldn't get to an outlet or didn't have much time to set up my double pump, I would use this quickly! It was worth the money to have an extra little quick pump when I needed relief. Couldn't sneak away for a whole half hour at work, I'd sneak away for 10 minutes and pump what I could. Decided to head to a quick dinner with friends after work, I'd pump for 10 minutes in my car to hold me over till I got home. Was also great to have as we weened from breast milk when all I needed was a few minutes to quickly pump and relieve my breasts! One of the best purchases I made as a working breastfeeding mom!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllTheLittleMonsters My favorite pump
I used this pump for 3 babies. One of whom I exclusively pumped with for 13 months. I love the comfort cushion. I also loved that you have complete control over suction amount and length, which made it possible to pump in half the time as my double electric pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Koko6685 Awesome!
I bought this product after buying the Medela PIS. I needed to build a better supply. My milk was decreasing rapidly. I began using this after using the double electric pump, and it worked wonders. I pulled in an extra ounce and an a half after pumping for a half hr. I have sworn by it ever since. I was getting minimal amounts while using the electric, this has really built my supply very well and i also became engorged for the first time thanks to this pump. Amazing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pamelambie Did its job, but for the price not worth it
I have a knack for leaving my other breast pump at home by accident and I buy whatever is available nearby if they don't carry my brand. I ended up with this pump.
Its not as comfortable as the one I'm used to and my hand cramped up. The pump range is also much more limited so I didn't have the same control I get with my normal pump and had trouble getting letdown as the short pumping range made controlling suction power a little tricky. Any manual will leak if you tip the pump too much but when holding this pump at a more comfortable angle that I'm accustom to holding my other manual at, I experiencedo leaking through the handle (this has happened to me with a couple other brands too, seems like my favorite brand is the only pump that let's you hold it at a comfortable angle without experiencing handle leaking)
Once I tediously achieved letdown, pumping was straightforward and easy. But with milky, cramped hands I threw this in the trash after using it saying "never again". Considering the price is the same as my favorite brand, I'd never buy this pump again. I wouldn't recommend it either. For the same amount, get a pump that's comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MJnRY I guess it's okay in a pinch..
I bought this prior to the birth of my daughter. I've only tried it a couple of times and was not happy with the results. I knew my breasts were full and I was only able to get about an ounce after pumping for quite a while. My electric pump was able to empty me completely. If you have hours on your hands, go ahead and buy this pump, but if you're looking for efficiency, get yourself a double electric.

Didn't want to spend the money on an electric pump with my first baby. This was comfortable and got the job done.
