Rated 4 out of 5Â by mamaKate16 Easy and gets the job done
This is a a quick and easy way to pump on the go or if you only do it occasionally. It's small and portable and very easy to clean as it is easily taken apart. The suction is very gentle which is nice and I seem to get the milk out pretty quickly compared to other manual pumps I have tried. The one downside to this pump is that it makes your hand cramp up. I feel like that's going to happen no matter what kind of manual pump you choose to use and since I only use it when I need some relief or if I am going to be away from my daughter for a while it's not a deal breaker. Overall I definitely recommend this product to other mamas out there!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Traci Love the soft removable flange!
I received this product to review from the Evenflo reps at MommyCon about a week ago. At the time I was suffering from severely cracked nipples. In fact, I had started to cut down on how many times I was pumping due to the pain and was starting to supplement more and more. After a week of using this pump, I am now healed and starting to rebuild supply. The soft removable flange added comfort and I believe helped heal the cracks. This pump is comfortable, portable, easy to use and clean, discreet, and effective. My only issue was it was a bit hard to see that my nipple fit and was placed properly but as the flanges are already clear I'm not sure how that issue could be remedied. I did the best I could by sight and the rest by feel. I'm so thankful that Evenflo came to my rescue when I needed it most.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Missy Great for on the go
I use an electric pump most of the time, but having this small manual one has saved me on multiple occasions. I would recommend all moms keep one in their car, at work, and parents house. Being a full time student, full time graduate assistant, AND a full time mommy keeps be very busy, so I tend to forget the little things A LOT. Having a manual pump with me where ever I am means that I can be comfortable and pump whenever I need to, even if I did forget a piece of my electric at home...or in the office.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Melissa Ineffective for this mom
I have an electric pump and love it. I got this manual pump in hopes to take it on the go and use for emergencies. On a night away from home, my little guy decided to sleep longer than expected (hallelujah). I woke up due to the pain and didn't want to wake him. I wasn't planning on pumping on this quick trip so I only had this manual pump. I tried to relieve some of the pain an pressure but to no avail. I tried for about 7 minutes thinking I wasn't doing it right or just needed to stimulate longer or something but I never got more than a few drops out. I ended up having to wake my sleeper to ease the pain. He went right back to sleep with a full belly but I would've preferred him to wake when he wanted. Now, I don't leave home (overnights or long periods away from little guy) without my electric pump.
