what parents are saying
I was given this hand pump in the hospital when I gave birth. I actually really like having it as a backup in case I am unable to use my freestyle. I love how all medela parts work together too. (Jan 11, 2017)
While most parents opt for a double-electric, this handy little manual pump can be a lifesaver and is affordable enough to buy in addition to your workhorse pump. It's quiet, discreet, and fits easily in your regular handbag. One weeSpring editor used hers while in her airplane seat, with no one the wiser. It's also helpful for quick relief if you get engorged and it can be used to relieve pressure to help baby to latch. Plus, because it isn't electric, it can be used anywhere (even the shower, which is many moms go-to for treating clogged ducts).
The Catch: If this is the only pump you’re using, your hand will probably tire after a while.
I honestly use this more than my electric pump. I can use this with one hand while baby nurses on the other! Takes some practice not to loose suction and tip forward while unlatching so no milk lost!

I really wanted to like this product because I’ve heard so many great things but it was too much work for me and I prefer the pump. I will continue to use on an emergency basis while traveling.

The valve wore out with only a few times of use. Washing was likely the issue. Worked well at first but as soon as valve started to wear it was no longer able to pump at all. Decent price if it last

The handle tends to rotate during use and as it happens the suction decreases, so you have to stop, fix the inner T-part that attaches to the suction cup so it's in proper position and then resume.

Very handy when your not at home/hands free. Love the portability however, there's a little rubber o ring that wears out and weakens the suction. I just bought some extra o ring at Ace hardware store.

I primarily use an electric pump, but this does the trick when I'm in a position where an electric would be inconvenient. I wouldn't want to use it as my primary pump. Disassembles small for packing.

I got this free from WIC but used the electric pump from my shower. Forgot it one day and found this actually worked better! Pump it repeatedly like you're priming it and it'll come out like a hose!

It gets the job done when you need fast and simple relief or to slip into a purse during a work conference) and not being your whole dang pump setup). What a hand workout though! Carpel tunnel anyone?

I love that it's portable and easy to use with two pump functions. Only downside is if you have xsmall nipples, they don't make a flange (smallest is size 21mm). Use as back up if electricity goes out
