Handy as can be...,
This review is from: Philips AVENT ISIS Manual Breast Pump with 125ml/4oz Breast Milk Container (Baby Product)
I got this set just before I gave birth and my partner laughed and said I would never use it. Boy, was he wrong. My baby had a really strong suck which equalled really really sore nipples. Enter this pump. I have been constantly using it for over three months now and I have always managed to express more than 18 ounces in one go... in about an hour and half. It lets you control your rhythm and expressing, which means less sore nipples and faster milk supply. I have been able to even catch a movie while my mom looked after the baby. Also when I am out and about with the baby I really do not care to have to run around to find a place I can breast feed baby, and also find the whole process quite awkward. Expressing before I go out means I can relax, and bottle feed her the expressed milk wherever I am, including in trains and buses.
I used the Medela Electric pump in hospital once, and it took over 2 hours to express just 8 ounces and hurt like the very dickens. Therefore I recommend this one to anyone wholeheartedly. Its one investment you won't regret and the price is so reasonable. The bottles come in pretty handy too. Once you move on to the bigger 9 oz bottles, you can use these to freeze milk. Great buy all around.
