A note on closed systems: Visit Wikipedia for information on open and closed systems. Some brands use a backflow filter instead of a backflow protector but still claim to be a closed system. A filter, by definition, allows some matter to pass through. In the case of backflow filters, external air is pushed in and out through the filters during expression. As it is pushed in, particles are caught by the filter and it prevents them from entering the breast pump motor. However, when the air is pushed back out, there is the potential for some of these particles to be pushed back into the collected breast milk. This would then make the breast pump, by definition, not a closed system.

This pump is the best! My son had a stage 5 lip tie so couldn’t breast feed properly. I tried to persevere even gritting thru the pain of him trying to feed. Once my midwife said he wasn’t putting on weight I knew I had to do something. Sat there with a hand pump and got 30mls after an hour. My mum was like ok this is ridiculous, I’m going to the Lactation consultant to get the one I saw there the other day. My mum brought this back for me and we were on a role! Being diabetic it was hard to get a milk supply but once I started pumping and Lactation cookies I was getting 180mls per breast! After a couple of formula feeds (after I found out he wasn’t gaining weight)and giving me time to pump the necessary amount I was able to give my son breast milk until he was 5months old. This machine was a lifesaver and I highly recommended it.
This pump saved me when I needed to go to work I had pre pumped plenty of milk for the freezer. It's simple to use and easy to clean used the switch kit a lot too for when I was away working 10+hour days with no electricity. Will be bringing it out again in a few weeks with baby number two! A++++
Its so easy to adjust the suction with just one dial
Fantastic pump. Was using avent pump several times daily for 4 1/2 months from when my son was born. I have a rather average supply and found I was getting only 20-40mls combined per pump. When my son wasn't putting on enough weight, I was advised I needed to provide more supplementary expressed bottle feeds in conjunction with breastfeeding but couldn't get enough to do so.
This pump has changed my expressing time and cut it down dramatically. I get atleast 40mls per side minimum, but usually around 60-90mls each side when I pump and am getting enough sometimes for the two bottles a day for my son aswell as one to put in the freezer. It has taken so much stress out of expressing and is allowing me to still continue breastfeeding, rather than having to give up my breastfeeding journey straight away. I wish I had brought this one first.
The only thing I disliked about this pumps were the cushions - it's a shame they don't come with the 27mm flanges.
I used 2 other (companies) breast pumps with my no. 1 that were quite expensive and recommended this pump to a friend who couldn't afford an expensive pump. With my no.2 who was born in January with a cleft palate, I was advised by a lactation consultant to buy a hospital grade pump.Initially I was given a hospital grade pump by Middlemore hospital, but that caused cracked nipples even at it's lowest(suction) setting. Then I bought this was and to my astonishment, this turned out to be the BEST pump I ever bought. When I spoke to Leah about my situation and some other requirements, not only did she help me with finding a great option, she provided the best customer support I've ever received in New Zealand ( of all the products I bought online). The breast pump is great for mums who want to exclusively pump. Of all the pumps I've used, I'm able to express a lot more milk using this one. My daughter is 17 weeks today and I've been using this pump since she was 4 weeks old. And I'm able to pump between 1400-1500 ml every day using this pump. I highly recommend this pump and using the team's services.
I was really impressed with how quiet this pump is compared to the Medela double which has served me for my previous babies. I was disappointed with the suction until I realised I had to push/click a piece of the pump down harder, then I LEAPT when I experienced how much suction this one has! HA! Awesome for getting the milk out faster so I can get on with the day!
I absolutely love love love this product i have been using it for 4months and it is used 2-3 times a day. It has not faltered, easy to clean. It is the best, i owned a avent manual and electronic breast pump. and this is by far the best for part-time or full time working moms who need to stock up a large milk supply. I was a little skeptical of the suction that you couldnt program it like avent but there is no worries with it and it fuctions well i am expressing between 250mls to 320mls a day during week days. I never had a problem with my milk coming out as long as I time it for every 4hours after her feed. I was recommended this product by Breastfeeding Manager at Middlemore Hospital and am so greatful to have a machine my baby is 6months and still expressing for her and she has just started on solids i will be using this for another 12months. Only recommendation is that they create a pack to make it portable.
The amount of milk expressed is doubled. Before, we were only able to get around 25-30ml each time. Now, using Unimom, we are able to get 50-60ml each time. We are so thankful for our new pump! Highly recommended.
Purchased for my sister. Leah was fabulous at helping me decide which one I should buy as I had no idea, and it turned up the next day - fast service! My sister found it easy and comfortable to use, and now there's food for the baby when I get to baby-sit, or just give my sister a break for a few hours :) I'll definitely order one for myself one day... :)
She also loves the milk storage bags with the temperature gauge, giving her the confidence she is storing and heating the milk correctly.
Next on the list is the carry bag and cooler kit i think! :)
Thanks Leah :)
