A must have for a mom, and dad...

Nov 7, 2005
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Very convenient, quick, inexpensive comparing to the other pro models.

Cons:Still a little pricey.

The Bottom Line: It's a must to have when a mother is overwhelmed with household chores, and a father with a bit of free time.


To a mom, it's nothing short of a miracle.
To most dads, it's nothing short of a huge sigh...

From a father's perspective (moi), it's a great thing to have, both on-the-go, and at home when a father wants to relieve the mother from the feeding chore, while she deserves a good rest.

For a mother of two, breast feeding, changing diapers, and taking care of the household while I'm away, it can be way too much burden for any mom. Hand pumps are way too much work to get rid of the unused portion of the milk before she screams her heads off. The pump is a great asset to have. I take turn in nurturing my little boy, while she gets a bit of rest at night, with all the milk the boy can hold down.

Pump time: Two pumps at the same time generate between 3 to 5 ounces, depending how much engorged she is, within 4 minutes.

Pump actions: The 1st quick pumping action really stimulate the milking process. To a father, although it appears very kinky and fun to look at, it's like milking a cow at a very quick pace. Once it hits 2 minutes, the "Let Down" takes it easy on the nipples, and slowly milk the breasts. Even at the highest level, my wife said it doesn't feel harsh on the nipple at all. Comparing to our little son's strength in sucking, this machine is softer and gentler.

Noise: It's slightly louder than the manual pump from Advent, but less than a normal conversation. If the pump is placed under the pillow, the sound is practically drowned out.

Clean-up: The hoses normally don't need to be washed/santized. The bottles and smaller parts need to be sanitized after each uses, which can be a hassle. But using the Advant microwave bottle sanitizer, it can be done in less than 3 minutes, with a light rinsing of the parts.
