Rated 5 out of 5 by Shan17 Buy this pump!!
I've used this pump, ameda purely yours and a medela hospital pump and avents pump beats them all. I can get 8 ounces of milk in half the time it took me to get one ounce with a different pump. I do find it more comfortable and more productive if I don't use the petals on the flange, which is a removable piece. I would never recommend a different pump. Avent gives you complete control over speed and suction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bmck21 Not for women with large nipples - pump doesn't fit and is painful!
I love everything about the pump except the fact that I can't find any replacement flanges to fit my breasts. My nipples are too large for the cushions and flanges that come with the pump. I've looked online and it doesn't seem like Avent offers replacement flanges for women with larger breasts/nipples. When I try to pump it is EXTREMELY painful! I'm sure this is a great pump for women with average size nipples. Unfortunately I wasted money and ended up in a lot of pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RachMom Very comfortable pump for mom with low milk supply
My son recently fell off his weight percentage and I needed to add supplemental feedings with a bottle. I felt discouraged after using the pump my insurance provided for me as I wasn't able to pump more than half an ounce from each side. Thankfully a friend recommended the Avent pump and I was able to pump much more milk with ease and comfort. I would highly recommend this to any new mother.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KPMOM Painful and difficult to use
There are so many pieces to this pump. If one piece is not on all the way, the entire pump doesn't work. The "comfort shields" are painful. The plastic tugs at your areoles. When the comfort shield comes loose as it often does, usually in the middle of pumping, the pump will not work. There are several other small parts that come loose when pumping as well. You have to turn the pump off and check each component to try to find the problem. This pump is not comfortable or relaxing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DancerMom It goes the distance, no questions asked and is gentle to tender tissue
I never intended to exclusively pump, but after 3 weeks of a sleeping baby at breast, I transitioned to exclusive pumping to save my sanity.
I hated, hated, hated the hospital pump. It felt like it was going to suck my nipples right off! I must be extremely sensitive, because I never got beyond the second level with the Medela hospital pump, and I used it for the full week that my baby was at the NICU.
I loved how gentle this pump was. I actually could extract more milk with this pump just because I could last longer. And there is a lot of garble out there about your supply deminishing if you only pump, but that is simply not the case. My baby was fed breast milk until a year of age when I transitioned him to toddler formula at my choice.
The pump is very quiet and has a very soothing swishlike hum that never woke the baby,even when he was right next to me. I could not use the comfort shells due to my larger bust, but I did find that you can insert larger cones into the Avent product and it seals tight with no leaks. The parts are easy to clean and durable. The valves lasted indefinitely for me and the diaphrams lasted about 45 days, pumping between 5-9 times a day.
I thought I would quit early if the pump died, but it never did. That sucker is still as strong as the day I bought it. The travel case is wonderful and the storage bags and icepacks keep the milk cold well over 4 hours. I would highly recommend this to any mother.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Augustmommy Thought it was great until it stopped working
I got this pump as a gift. I wanted it because I love the Avent bottles and my daughter takes them well. I have only been pumping for three weeks 2x a day. This morning when I went to turn it on, the suction was completely gone. Since I go back to work in two days I now have to buy a different brand of pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yasmin This product is simply amazing!
Easy to assemble, light weight, neatly put together in the carry on bag, easy to sanitize, minimum noise while pumping (so when the baby is asleep it won't wake her up if you are pumping right next to her). I have the twin pump and the only thing I wish would be designed better is that second cord! when not in use it hits everywhere and I am always worried that it would break one of these days, alsthough it can get attached to the cord itslef but that really doesn't help much. Other than that I think: It's made to make moms life easy and happy pumping!!
