Not enough suction
Reviewed in the United States on September 30, 2018
This product sounds like it works for some, and it's a great idea, so I hesitate to dock it in the reviews but I want to make sure other ladies can find this information, as I looked for it in the reviews and didn't see it mentioned.
I found myself in a breast emergency, halfway around the world with no way to express milk because I thought this would be a great travel solution. I even tried hot shower, hand stimulation to let down, even hand expressing to get it 'going', and then use this and it still would not pump a single drop. I wasn't looking to draw enough milk to feed my child, just enough to keep my milk flowing while I'm away from my toddler for 2 weeks. I had to go old school and hand express until I could go and buy a Phillips Avent hand pump. Multiple times, during hand expressing, while definitely getting a good flow, I tried using this again to see if it just needed that help and still, not a drop!
So, just a warning, this is not enough suction for those of us who need the Medela Pump In Style Advanced and never, ever leak milk. (The Ameda Purely Yours electric pump my insurance provided was not strong enough for me either.)
