When I first was looking for a pump I was very skiddish about spending my money because I didn't want to spend it on something that didn't work. Especially since you can't return a breast pump and I don't have money to just throw away on something that won't work. So I went ahead and tried this one and it works GREAT. Works fast for me. Nothing to complain about in my opinion. The suction is something that my mom was worried about because sometimes the suction isn't real good. But I feel like it is for this one. All I can really say is that this is a GREAT pump especially since it's not a hundred dollars or more like most.
The week my daughter was born we were having trouble nursing and I needed something to pump with until we had success. The MiPump was cheap and I figured I would only need it occasionally until we had it down. 2 1/2 weeks later my little one still isnt nursing and im using the pump fulltime, every 3 hours. I am SO thankful I bought the MiPump. Its small and sleek, can run on batteries, I get a good amount everytime and it isnt painful. With my first I had the medela and it hurt! This one is WELL worth the money. I would recommend this to anyone! You cant get this good of quality for this kind of price with any other pump. I cant say enough about it!
I wanted an electric pump, since my experience with a manual was not very pleasant. This pump is great, its very compact, quiet, & efficient. Has a smooth let down and the variable speeds are great too. I used it after I had my baby to get my supply to come in & it worked wonders. Would recommend to anyone!
This pump is not only affordable, but it's efficient and comfortable. i love love LOVE it! i had registered for a much much more expensive pump and then decided i probably wouldn't need one. when my daughter was born, i changed my mind again and sent my fiance out to the store to get me a pump and he came home with this one. I raised an eyebrow at first and was worried that because it was so affordable it would be painful or slow or have poor suction. QUITE the opposite! it's fast, comfortable, quiet, and i get a good deal of milk in like 5 minutes. i guess the only thing i would change is that the bottle only holds 5 oz and i always have to dump it mid-way and then finish because i get about 6-7 oz from each breast. other than that, no complaints! skip the expensive ones, this one has it all.
I was looking for a breas pump because my baby decided not to breastfeed anymore... and my milk production started to go down.
I believe strongly that breasmilk is the BEST thing that any mom can give to his/her baby. Plus it helps moms to loose those extra pounds.
I had a manual pump and it worked ok. normally takes long to pump etc... therefore I wanted to buy a breastpump and after searching for an electric one on internet and reading previous comments about this product; I decided to buy it at the store.
The same night I tried it... it was just wonderful. It's easy to put together, easy to clean, easy to use, it's not uncomfortable at all, it gives a nice massage while pumping and the most wonderful thing is that my milk production has been going up and up and that is what I really wanted!
I honestly recommend this product. It's really good, good for the price and most important, keep your baby having the most wonderful thing we can give to them...breast milk!
I just love it!
I got this because it was the cheapest. You get what you paid for!
Pros: The breast shield is comfortable and it's easy to clean and put together, First Years WILL mail you replacement parts.
Cons: it doesn't last AT ALL! and the parts have to be mailed, so it takes a while to get them if it breaks, I don't have anything to compare it to, but I don't feel the suction is as effective as I would like.
I've been using this for about 10 weeks and the motor isn't working. You can hear it going, but the clicking noise it makes when it's actually pumping isn't clicking because it's not pumping. This was my first week back to work. It was starting to act funny a couple of weeks ago, but I ignored it because I didn't want to spend money on a new (expensive) pump. Today I could tell it's about to die and I've been full all day because I couldn't get it to work. In a 30 minute pumping session, it probably actually pumped 5% of that time. I've called to get replacement parts and I've ordered a different pump by Avent. Theirs can be used manually or electric, so if you do need new parts for it, you can use it manually while waiting for replacement parts. I'll be using the mi pump as a back up. IF YOU CHOOSE TO BUY THIS ONE, ORDER REPLACEMENT PARTS AT THE FIRST SIGN OF A PROBLEM!
I am very shocked that this pump has any negative reviews! It is absolutely wonderful and is helping me produce more and more milk for my baby. The price for such a wonderful pump is amazing. I highly recommend it!
i guess it would be a good product if you only use it every once and a while.. but i used it 8-10 times daily.. after 2 weeks it started losing suction and after a month the motor stopped completely
I've been using this pump for the past 3 1/2 months and it's great. I borrowed a $200 pump from a friend of mine thinking it would be more efficient, but I didn't get any more milk than I do with my The First Years pump. I love it!
With the rising cost of everything I decided to fully breast feed child number 4. This thing is Amazing its extra comfy to use. you can start off slow for comfort and speed it up at your convenience so it doesn't hurt. The silicone was a great choice for making this pump you don't even feel it on your breast and Its like a suction cup. I researched a lot and was very skeptical about it since the price was so much cheaper than the big names. but after reading the reviews I only wanted this one. I returned the one I got from my shower after reading the reviews for that one and I am happy to say I'm glad I exchanged it. I also used it with the batteries on a outing to the lake and it works just as good with four AA batteries as with electric. Just FYI I got the single one because I read a review that the double one did not do well for large breasted women. So this was a safe buy since you can not return pumps after they are open.
I am so mad that I bought this pump!!! I figured there were more good reviews than bad ones , and the price was great so I went ahead and got it. I could have saved my money. My baby is 8 weeks old today and the pump died on me yesterday, didn't even make it to the 8 week mark. I turned it on, the motor was on but there was no suction whatsoever. I tried turning it off and on several times, checked and re-checked the tubing and made sure that all the parts were on correctly, still not working. So there I was fully engorged, no backup manual pump and basically up the creek without a paddle. Let me add that I made sure to follow the instructions correctly when using, cleaning and storing this pump. I wasn't overusing it (barely using it once a day and sometimes once every other day). This is just a POOR PRODUCT. For the almost 8 weeks that it lasted it was just an okay pump, nothing to sing and dance about. In fact, the suction wasn't strong enough for me and it was noisy but hey, I was willing to work with it for the price I got it at. However now that it has quit on me, I won't be calling the company to get the replacement motor or whatever, I'll just buy a better pump and save myself the headache.
When I first got the pump I used it here and there, then it would work only sometimes. I ended up calling and getting a replacement when my baby was only 2 weeks old. 1 week later the suction was getting weak. so here my baby was only a month old and I was on my 3rd pump. There customer service is nice and willing to get me a new one. They wont do refunds though. They expect me to send in the old one, but I don't and shouldn't have to pay for shipping.
Even if it did work,
The pump is a wide mouth so you can't use with regular bottles.
The bottle they give you to pump into only holds 6 oz which is fine in the beginning, but right now I have to empty it after each side.
Don't bother with this product. Spend the extra money and get something that will work. It was so frustrating to go without the pump. Because of its lack of durability I had to give my baby formula.
Save yourself the headache!
I got this pump to initially relieve engorgement when my daughter was first born 7 months ago.
First off the suction is completely inefficient. It took literally an hour to pump 5 ozs of milk. Either the suction is too little or WAY too much causing pain and redness on the nipple.
Second the breastshield is not comfortable at all and caused alot of pain. It doesn't position correctly and it rubs your nip no matter how you place it in the flange.
Thirdly you can not use this when returning to work. It would take WAY too long.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. If you are going to be pumping regularly, just spring for the Medela or Avent brand bumps.
I bought this product for my best friend. The first time she tried to use it after her baby was born, it ran a few seconds then stuck on high and started making loud noises. The pump had to be shut off and failed to work again. She is trying to return this product and refuses to even try a replacement.
This pump is horrible!!! When I read the reviews I figured some may like it and others won't and forged ahead due to the price. Please....do not waste your money. This pump has so little suction that I had to put it on the highest level and still only produced 2 ounces in one hour. That is awful. It does not have a "suck cycle" (suck, suck, suck, release like baby produces when nursing and is essential to produce milk) and therefore it is constantly squeezing/releasing. The flanges are small and squeeze your breasts to the point of bruises/blisters and no, I do not have large breasts. The tubing cannot be cleaned and will need to be replaced once condensation builds up which it did in mine in 2 days. Finally, the neck of the flange is opaque and you cannot clearly see if milk is flowing into the bottle so you must turn your head (while keeping it pressed so you don't lose the little suction you do manage to get) or take the bottle off and look for drips. The only plus side of this pump is the cute bag and the bottle. My baby has a hard time latching when I breastfeed and these bottles require compression and suction for the baby to feed; much like breastfeeding. Other than that, steer clear of this pump.
I was very nervous about picking out a pump. Every single one I looked at had horrible reviews or was expensive!!!! The miPump is awesome. Cheap & works wonders! It has great suction without making your nipples hurt. Easy to set up and clean. It also comes with a cute tote bag to carry and keep everything in. I am very VERY impressed with this pump. The only thing negative I have noticed is it shuts off if it does not have the right suction.
I purchased this with trepidation , but it works really well the pump settings are a must and the size is really small . I like the battery operation so i can take it anywhere
I purchased this pump based on the reviews and the price. The first one broke after the 90 day warranty period but I bought a second one due to the price again. It broke after 60 days with the exact same problem. I've called into the company and they are sending a replacement, however, I would not recommend this product as two of them have now broken on me and the company must have a quality issue with the product.
GARBAGE! DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT. Not enough suction, loud and I have only had it for exactly two weeks and it is broken already. In the middle of using it it stopped pumping and started to vibrate and blow the air out the tubing. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!!!! I wouldn't even give this product one star!!
A complete waste of money, the pump stopped working after week. Don't waste your money!!!!!
