Inefficient in expressing milk
I've been pumping for 20-30minutes and my breats still aren't empty
I still need to do a manual hand expression and i can still get a lot of milk

Rated 1 out of 5 by mrsarod427 Pump was painful
I bought this pump based on multiple reviews I had read online and thinking I would not need a premier pump since I did not plan on going back to work. The day after my milk came in, I began pumping with the Philips pump and over the next couple days noticed scabs on my breasts. I met with a lactation nurse concerned about my scabs and she told me this is fairly common with the Philips pumps due to the silicone petal liner and the size of the flanges. If you are a larger chested girl, then you may be okay, but because I am smaller chested, the silicone liner was rubbing too hard leaving scabs in the shape of the petal. I would not recommend this pump and now, am arguing with my insurance to try to receive another brand. I've been renting a Medela and would highly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gpol1978 Like the pump but hard to hold
I really like the pump and is easy to use. Im using it about 4 times a day to increase my breastmilk supply, as i don't have enough milk, but it is hard to hold. I was hoping there would be a wearable accessory so i could latch the two suction cups on and not need to use both my hands. Besides, the instructions say to have the cups on before turning the machine on, but that is hard when you are already using both your hands to hold the suction cups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Erikamac Better than medela
I've used this through 2 children and going strong. I got the medela thinking it would be better but after all the rave, I ended up still using this one. It's more comfortable. It is louder than medela but otherwise I like it better. Love that it lights up so I can pump at night and see what I'm doing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Turns Off Few Minutes into Pumping; Loud Clicking Noises Constantly
I originally was SUPER excited when I was given this pump to re-lactate for our baby that will be here at the end of the year (via a family member as our surrogate due to infertility). The first two times I used it, I had absolutely NO problem with the pump minus a very loud almost clicking type noise that I hadn't heard a pump make before. I figured this was just how the pump worked and when reading reviews I have found that I am not the only one. After the first few times of using the pump, I have found that it will just out of the blue turn off and have the "on/off" button flashing. I have checked the power sources, made sure everything was connected properly and turned it off and back on (it requires you to in order to get it to work again) and sometimes it will work for the remainder of the time with no issue, while other times it does it 3-5 and sometimes even more than 7 times in one session! I am thinking that I will likely have to purchase a new pump and attempt to return this pump or get a refund from the Philips company for it (not sure if they will help me out or not, I would accept a new pump and see if it is just this pump and if the new one doesn't work, I will be requesting a full refund so that I can purchase a different pump) as I need a pump that will help me be able to re-produce milk and so far this one just isn't cutting it!! It is VERY important to me that my baby be on breastmilk and be able to not have to rely on her surrogate mommy for milk (and stay away from the bottles full time), so I am very dissapointed in this product so far. Which is a shame, as I love the Avent products, just not this pump. Fingers crossed that Philips is willing to work with me on this issue!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mommyof4girls Avent Comfort Vs. Avent twin
I previously had bought the Avent twin electric breast pump in May of 2013 to use for my third child. I recently had my fourth child and got this pump out to use again. It started making a loud clicking noise in the motor and the suction seemed reversed, like it was pushing air out instead of suctioning. I called as I still have the 24 month warranty. They sent me a new pump. When I received the new pump, it was the Avent comfort double electric pump. I called again, thinking there was a mistake. But, no mistake, they don't make the Avent twin electric anymore. I'm very disappointed to learn this. I've since been using the comfort double electric pump but unfortunately it doesn't measure up to the Avent Twin that I had previously. The Avent twin had a handle to where I could pump at my desired pace & suction and hit the button to pump automatically. With this new one, you get a let down button and 3 speed buttons. I have found that with this new one, the let down button does nothing for me. Neither does the first speed setting. I will start getting milk on the second speed setting, but it takes forever for my milk to start flowing. With the Twin electric pump, my milk would start flowing right away, within just a couple of pumps of the handle. The twin electric also expressed my milk much faster than the comfort double. I could get more milk in about half the time with the Twin electric. It's very unfortunate that Avent stopped making the twin. With the comfort electric, I'm only able to pump about half the milk (was pumping 4oz total with the twin, now pumping 1.5 MAYBE 2oz with the comfort double) in double the time with the comfort double. The comfort double is also MUCH louder than the twin was, even with the clicking noise the motor started making. With the comfort electric, I also have a hard time getting my breasts placed correctly to keep the suction. I had no issues with this with the twin. I'm not sure if the flanges are smaller, but they are shorter than the twin ones were.
