Have you even tested this?!I am using Avent single breast pump for a month now. Since beginning I had issues with upper lid which would always dettach from pressure I had to press to close it again every 2 minutes. The sound is terrible, I bet that even actual cow milking machines sound better. I needed 1hr of pumping to get almost all milk out, but some of it always remained behind, so my milk supply decreased. Finally, a month after purchase it creates almost no vacuum
at all!! I checked everything - both lids, silicone at the nipple-hole... everything seems fine but it simply does not work. At this point more milk gets out when I simply squeeze my breast, than with the pump. The problem is that I had no choice on purchase - Avent has monopoly on breast pumps inmy country (literally no other brand for pumps) - but I am so mad that I will take time to write to each retailer in the country about my experience.

Very comfortableI got Lanisnoh pump from my insurance and it works great but I would be in pain the first 6-7 minutes of pumping. The shield had a little bit of rubber around the rim but the rest was plastic, so by the time I finished my nipple were really red and sore, and even cut. I did it that way for 3 months, but then I came across avent comfort and I can honestly say it is comfortable. The rubber shield make pumping enjoyable my nipple aren't red and sore after I'm done.
I work full time so I'm pumping all my milk out, so I pump about 5 to 6 times a day everyday. I highly recommended this product especially to mom who have to go back to work and still want to give their babies breast milk.

Mother’s Breast Friend!Got this during those desperate first days with a newborn, never regretted. It helped keeping my supply coming when I had to briefly stop breastfeeding for 48h. Very easy to use, the different levels of strength were perfect depending on what time of the day I was pumping. Comfortable for the breast, it also helped me massage it every time I had blocked tubs in my breast (sadly quite often). Two years later I used it again with my second child, didn’t need to read the manual as all came back easily in my memory - that easy to use! And still going strong on third child, 4 years after purchase. Can’t fault this product at all. Definitely recommended.

True to the Philips Avent brandFirst, I must tell you I received a free pump in exchange for my honest review. This pump is pretty similar to the other Philips Avent pump I have used. A nice thing about this pump is that you don`t have to lean forward to use it so it can be a bit more comfortable (comfort is key to pumping!). I have a strong letdown and for others like me, if you are using a single you may want to have an extra bottle/cup to catch milk from the other side while you pump.
I am honestly not a huge fan of pumping in general (I AM a fan of breastmilk but typically find pumping to be less comfortable and more work than breastfeeding) so a few tips for those who are new to pumping and think this pump (or any pump) is not working for them: Comfort is important. If you are stressed or scared of using the pump, do your best to calm down. I know it sounds silly but dim the lights, play relaxing music, breathe deeply, and think warm thoughts about your baby. If you are using a single and have the ability to, try pumping on one side while feeding your baby on the other. I found it helped me get used to pumping and I generally was able to get more milk this way.

Don't BuyI've been using this pump for a little over two months. If I could return it, I would. Often, after dissembling to clean, I can't get the thing to pump properly again. I find myself constantly adjusting the parts in order to get proper suction. I could live with this, however, even though it is annoying, since I always manage to get it working eventually.. The worst part of this pump for me is the leaking. Milk is constantly dripping out and getting on my clothing. No matter how careful you are while using this, there is always a mess. Also, the pump does not screw on tightly to the bottle, no matter how hard you tighten (this seems to be a problem with avent bottles in general.) If you put the pump down and it accidentally tips or if milk gets too close to the top of the bottle, you have a huge mess on your hands. I'm sure there are better pumps out there. I would not recommend this.

Highly RecommendedFirst time I've used a Phillips breast pump and I'm very pleased with the results! In the past you could tell other brands weren't made to be comfortable or to last so well but you can tell this is made of high quality materials. Also had very helpful support from a professional which really helped to make me more confident breast feeding. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great little pumpThis is a great little pump.
Firstly the instructions are clear and not over complicated. Once you have put the pump together once or twice it becomes very easy to remember what goes where.
It's not too noisey so great if you have a sleeping baby or expressing somewhere like at work. It can be both mains operated and battery operated, if the battery's are in the machine it will automatically use the main supply if plugged in.
There is a stimulation setting, then three auctions settings.
I was able to pump with ease in the mornings. I have used another pump which had a stronger pump setting than this pump could offer but it's not really required (was a hospital one) and the Philips one is sufficient.
My baby took the Philips bottle ok but I was advised by the breastfeeding consultant that a shorter teat would be better from another brand as this would mimic more natural feeding, hence why the pump had 4 stars and not 5!
Over a this is a great pump that I would reccommend to others.
The support recieved the from breastfeeding consultant was invaluable and a great idea to combine the two! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Worse Than Hand ExpressingThe performance of this pump has gone downhill since my first use. I'm increasingly getting less and less milk, and this morning, after using the pump for about 3 months now, I got .2 oz from one breast using the pump and another .7oz hand expressing after using the pump. I shouldn't be getting a better performance from my own hands! What's the point in using the pump?
