Rated 4 out of 5 by Shan2016 Good pump for once-a-day use
Bought this pump on sale to provide top-ups or the odd full feed for my 12 week old. I had used a hospital grade pump in the first 6-8 weeks, and i find that the avent pump gets better results. I like the soft silicon in the funnel part - it feels more gentle and natural which i think helps with the result. Also, no spillage. I agree with others that the suction is not great but I still prefer this pump even if it takes a bit longer to get the required mls. I'm not sure how this pump would perform for someone needing to pump for more feeds. Personally, I hated pumping before but the avent pump has made it tolerable. Happy with my purchase so far!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mils14 Waste of money
On a recent interstate trip my old Philips Avent pump (the electric one with the grey top that lets you set the suction/speed yourself) broke in transit, so I straightaway went to the nearest chemist and got this new pump. I didn't check any reviews as I trusted the brand and the product. Boy do I wish I had done my research...
First time using it, I pumped 20mls after 10 mins and got a cracked nipple - I normally have a fast flow and can pump 100ml quite quickly but I perservered to try to at least get something out. Second time was the same, I'm not trying a third time. The suction is terrible, the speed is soooo slow and is a waste of time.
What was supposed to be a lovely first family holiday away has turned into a nightmare as I've now had to fork out for 2 pumps (which is not ideal when you're down to one income), I'm incredibly sore from attempting to use the pump and it's affecting my milk supply.
Why change the old design, what was wrong with it? Bring it back, please!

The motor completely stopped working. It doesn't suck and shuts off after a few pulses. I've only used it for about 6 months.
However, I did really like it while it worked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer I would take this off the market
I feel so sad to have to write such a terrible review but unfortunately I don't have one good thing to say about this product.
My friend gave me an Avent breast pump to use (the one with the grey motor?) and after being very happy with that one, I went out and bought the newest one on the market.
I had an extremely difficult time trying to get any milk when using this pump.
I didn't have an easy time with feeding as my daughter couldn't latch on well and fed very, very slowly. In the end I had to pump the majority of my milk.
This pump was useless and I wasted so much precious time trying to express.
I would be absolutely ashamed to sell this product and am so annoyed it cost me so much. It wasn't worth the money at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Maria31 Poor suction
I purchased this product considering the reputation & I am totally disappointed. My initial pump was replaced since it was faulty & I didn't had to use the brand new pump up until 3 days ago. I haven't been expressing for 4 months because of exclusive breast feeding. However I have been expressing for 3 days now in order to use for the introduction of solids & totally disappointed with what I get. Tried hand expressing & I could get much better outcome. Total waste of time and money. Really really disappointed.

Brought this pump for my 4 week old as I got a lot of milk flow used it once and could fill up 2 bottles in an hr suction was great
Second time I used it I sat there for 45mins and got 20 ml was very disappointed as this is such a waste of time when you have a new born so i tried it again a few days later and still NO suction I contacted the place of purchase and they have done NOTHING about the matter especially after the price you pay for this I expect a product that works
Very upsetting to have wasted that much on something that doesn't work

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dipika23 Extrenely disappointed. Absolute waste of money.
Would not recommend anyone to use this. Its mentally exhausting and we have to deal enough with a little baby anyway and the last thing we want is to get depressed and question our milk production. I've spent countless days crying coz I thought there's something wrong with me and my production but I'm glad to read the reviews below and realize its not me but the machine. For the ridiculous amount of money that we have paid, we would expect some kind of guarantee. Everyone I know who uses this product hates it. I get frustrated and end up manually filling the bottle with my hand in less time. I'd definitely want a refund ! My husband and I blindly trusted some websites and went for this option but I guess they were paid reviews. Very very disappointed with such a trusted brand.
