UPDATE: instead of returning the second defective pump, I went to my local hardware store and asked if they sold "tiny rubber o-rings." I bought two that looked similar in size, but a bit thicker and sturdier. When I got home, I slipped on the smaller one and it totally fixed the problem!! Don't buy Medela's replacement o-rings, they are crap. It's worth the $.50 and drive to the hardware store. Works great now! See photos.
-Very easy to use
-Portable-fits great in the diaper bag, perfect for on the go
-no batteries or power cord needed
-accessories are easy to find (medela is sold at babies r us and target)
-excellent suction (for a little while anyway-which brings me to cons)
-Looses suction quickly
-only made for minimal use
-if you don't use the stand and the pump/bottle tips over, milk spills everywhere!! The seal between the pump top and bottle is not tight.
The suction is very good in the beginning but it doesn't last long. I purchased this pump with my first son, it only lasted a few weeks. It's made for ocational use and I used it pretty frequently until my medela double electric pump arrived so I blamed that one on my self for over using it.
I purchased another one when I had my second son. Again, it only lasted two weeks and I only used it a few times. I was able to exchange that one for my third (and final pump) a few weeks later and my third pump is not working!
It works very well in the beginning, but looses suction fast even without frequent use. I really like this pump because medela is a very popular brand and it's very easy to find the accessories (extra bottles, nipples, caps, etc.) I was also able to mix the accessories from this pump with my electric pump. However, I've decided not to buy another one! It should last longer than a few uses, and it's just not worth the hassle. I use my electric pump for the most part but I still like to have a smaller one for on the go. I will try a different brand. There are a lot of options out there!
The parts are very easy to clean. I usually just rinse them, soak them in soapy water, then rinse again and sterilize. Because there are so few parts, it is easy to break down and clean quickly. My only "con" with this is that you cannot sterilize the O ring or the pump handle. As a self-proclaimed germophobe, I want to be able to sterilize all parts. I just make sure I clean these extra well.
Also take into consideration that you likely will not respond as well to a manual pump as you do to nursing or an electric pump, but for the reasons that I need it, it definitely fits the bill. I would highly recommend this for someone looking for a manual pump.
-quiet and does not need a plug therefore you can pump anywhere
-easier than you think and oddly quicker than the automatic
-all parts fit with the automatic pump accessories, medela bottles and lifefactory bottles
-you are still pumping by hand although easier than you would think, your hand can get tired
-the handle can turn 360 which is actually pretty annoying because it can cause you to slip
-there is a plastic piece in the neck part which connects to the handle which I do not like. See attached photo. I like being able to see through all parts and having access to clean everything this piece does not allow that. Therefore I will not use it after 10 hrs (recommended shelflife of non refrigerated milk) without boiling it even with rinsing.
If you are exclusively pumping there is a definite use of both the automatic and manual pumps. Overall I am happy and would recommend it.
