  • Breastfeeding is always easier than pumping. But when it comes to expressing, double pumping is proven to get 18% more milk because both breasts are stimulated at the same time. … Double pumping is twice as fast as single pumping so not only do mums benefit from: 18% more milk in a 15-minute pumping session compared to single pumping. An additional milk let-down reflex.

  • I used the Medela Swing pump and was pleased with it.

  • I think get a good quality pump – it’ll work better and last longer. I think I used Pigeon and
    Avent, both of which are established brands and worked well.

  • I can’t remember the brand I used, sorry, it was too long ago.

  • Definitely medela, the swing is great

  • avent is pretty good. depending on your need, you can get the electric or manual pump.

  • Great for if your partner wants to join in and help feed your baby, great for when you have large milk flows, great for if you want to go out for the night and a baby sitter can feed your baby with your milk, great for storing extra milk just in case, we love our breast pump.

  • My first child I used the Avent Electric. Was really happy with it. Although it was expensive and used to annoy me that there were so many parts to it to take apart and sterilise. My second child I used the Medela Mini Electric. Certainly prefer that one to the Avent. It was cheaper and only 1 part to sterilise. Only problem is, it wasn’t very quiet. Although, neither was the Avent. I would have been lost without having a pump though! Definitely worth the money!
