While in the hospital I used one of their hospital grade pumps and it worked just fine. After I got home from the hospital, I bought both this pump and a dual electric, but didn't open the box on the electric one. The manual pump was all I needed and the electric one went back to the store.
With an electric pump you are chained to the chair you are in. But with this manual pump you can get up and walk around and even do simple chores! It's great in long car rides and I found it even more comfortable than the hospital grade electric pump which would hurt on occasion. This pump has never hurt.
I've shared my experience with a friend and she bought one and loves it just like I do. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.
Out of all the pumps I have tried, this is the most comfortable to use. For the low price, this just can not be beat.
I don't know why anyone would choose an electric pump over this absolutely fantastic pump. It's quite, doesn't hurt, is super portable, doesn't require batteries or an outlet, ergonomic, expresses as much or more milk in the same amount of time, and is easy to clean.
My only complaint is that it started squeaking after a month of use. I didn't care when I was at home, but at work it was too conspicuous. I found that if I put a little petroleum jelly on the squeaking part that it was silent again. It's truly a joy to use this product and I hope all mom's who need to pump give it a try.
My Avent manual breast pump broke beyond repair and I decided to replace it with this one. Good decision! The Lansinoh pump is better in just about ever regard and the net result is that I'm pumping about twice the ounces with this pump!
I don't pump full time or anything like that but whenever I need to pump this little manual pump is simple, quiet, easy to clean and maintain and gets the job done. Why pay more for something complicated? At least try this one first.
I'm a stay at home mom so I don't need to pump very often, but when I do I've found this pump to be simple and convenient to use. In about half an hour I can pump enough milk for a feeding.
I seem to have difficultly getting letdowns with my medela harmony pump so after doing a lot of research and seeing the positive reviews of the lansinoh pump I decided to give it a try. Am I ever glad I did. Letdowns are no problem and I'm getting much more milk. This has completely replaced my medela, but unfortunately this means that I'm manual pumping 5 to 6 times a day and my hands really hurt.
I have both the lansinoh double electric pump and the manual pump and find that the manual pump is really hard on my hands! I don't have small hands or anything, but after a few minutes my hands hurt and I have to keep switching from hand to hand. I like that the manual pump is quieter, has better suction, is super portable and is so easy to set up and clean. I like that the electric pump is dual (pumping both breasts at once), hands free so I do other things and feel that it drains the breasts better.
When you're on the road, nothing beats this small manual pump. It took me a few tries to get used to it (because it is different than my double electric pump) but once over the learning curve it's so easy. Quick to clean and great for travel. I love the lansinoh manual breast pump.
I bought the medela pump in style for over $300 and used it the first month or so and found it to be adequate. It's a bit inconvenient to have to sit near an outlet and have to manage all the tubes but it seemed to be an ok pump in all other regards. I found it nearly impossible to use it to pump one breast and breastfeed on the other side with all the tubes in easy reach for grabbing.
I then was going to travel abroad and did not want to lug the medela around so I bought this pump and am so happy I did. It fits easily in my purse. It's ultra portable. Light. Easy to clean. And it works just as well for removing milk. Now I wish I had never paid that $300!
