5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Pump, September 24, 2002 breast pump avent breast pump medela
Although it's a manual pump - you'd never know it. I had an electric one w/my first son and it was noisy, painful, and slow. This pump is awesome. I can pump 4-8 oz in 10 minutes! It's quiet and quick. Once you learn how to assemble it - there's nothing to it. After you get the milk to flow you don't even have to pump, just hold down the handle and keep the suction and then you can take your free hand to put pressure on varying parts of your breast to make the flow move along even quicker. breast pump avent breast pump medela

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes me wonder why I bought the Medela Pump In Style, breast pump avent breast pump medela
Everyone on Earth told me, "Don't cheap out and get a manual pump! Get the Medela!!!" I do like the Medela, but...well, read on.

Last week, when my baby hit 4 weeks, my husband and I spent the weekend on a mini-vacation while my mother-in-law took care of the baby. I didn't want to take my big, luggy Pump-in-Style along and set it up in the hotel room, just to express milk that I wouldn't keep because I had nowhere to keep it. So I went to the drugstore and bought the Avent Isis, about which I'd heard good things.

Compared to the electric pump, this was SOOOOOOO CONVENIENT. All you have to do is hook up an Avent bottle (or disposable breastmilk cup) and go. There's no tubing to plug in, no bag to lug around, etc. I got just as much milk out of this as I do from my Medela P.I.S. It was easy on my hand, too, and I have a tiny, tiny bit of residual carpal tunnel syndrome left over from pregnancy. The milk just flowed.

Also, I was already using Avent bottles, so that makes this even easier. If you want to store your milk in Avent bottles but use another brand of pump, you have to buy Avent's bottle-neck adapters. (I have these, too, for the electric pump.)

With the electric pump (for the unfamiliar out there), you have to hook up tubing between the part that gets the milk from your breast, and your electric pump unit (concealed in the fashionable bag). You also have to hook up a plug from your bag/pump unit to the wall. It is annoying if one end of the tubing, say, touches the floor or your pet comes up and gets his face on it before you get started (have to re-clean and start over). There are other annoyances, but the setting up is the most inconvenient part of the electric pump. With the manual pump--and the Avent Isis is a particularly good one--you just hook the bottle to one end of the pump, put it up to your breast, and get milk.

I guess the one advantage of the electric pump is that you can pump both breasts at the same time.

I don't find the Isis to be remarkably slower than the P.I.S. And I get just as much milk. (Some people don't.) If I had less money and economy were more of a consideration, I'd surely try this pump first before trying an electric pump.
So...
PROS
--easy setup
--very portable
--gets as much milk as an electric pump (at least, for me)
--economical (much cheaper than electric)
--if you use Avent bottles, it's easy storage
--almost as fast as electric pump (at least, for me)
--hooks right up to Avent bottles OR disposable cups
--Avent adapters separately available for use with other brands of bottles

CONS
--only pumps one breast at a time
--doesn't always get good milk from all people, but does from many
Oh! One more thing: if you want to store your milk in bags, whether you use an electric or manual pump, just express the milk into a clean bottle and pour it into a bag. The Medela has a complicated method for expressing right into a bag, but it takes EVEN LONGER to set up. And use Lansinoh bags.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little pump!, June 11, 2002
Recently, while on vacation I misplaced the membranes for my "Medela, Pump In Style Breast pump", which are vital for operation. The spare parts were safe at home, and with a hungry boy on my hands, I was in a predicament. Unable to nurse, I have provided my son with breast milk by pumping three times a day since birth. I was concerned about maintaining my milk supply, not to mention the discomfort of very full breasts, so I purchased the Isis Breast pump because I use Avent products and liked the idea of being able to pump right into the feeding bottle, 4-ounce, 9-ounce or disposable. I am amazed by the comfort, control and power this little hand pump provides. In addition, I enjoy the convenience of not having to be "plugged in" and the reduced amount of bottles to wash. I found this pump to be great in a pinch, or for a weekend away. However, for my particular situation having to express 30 ounces a day in order to keep up with my little guy, the "Pump In Style" is superior to the Isis in both speed and quantity of milk expressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars AVENT ISIS VERSUS MEDELA PUMP IN STYLE, August 15, 2002
Before giving birth I purchased the Avent Isis pump (after reading the reviews) with the plan to pump just occasionally. I first tried to use it in the hospital, but couldn't draw a drop! Unfortunately I had a lot of problems breastfeeding (extreme pain) and decided to buy the Medela Pump in Style so that I could pump all my milk and feed the baby by bottle. This worked fine for 3 months - I'd double pump for 15-20 mins and get a total of 4-5oz. The downside to the Medela though is it is heavy to carry around, noisy and requires electricity, so is not very practical if you're traveling or out shopping for the day! Also, if you are double pumping it "ties up" your hands so if you're alone with the baby and have to retrieve a pacifier or answer the phone you have to turn the whole thing off, un-attach the bottles (otherwise they easily tip over) and clean yourself up! The Avent's much easier in this regard.
I had tried the Avent again (since leaving the hospital), but still couldn't get more than a couple of drops, so was reluctantly preparing to stop breast pumping altogether (before going on vacation) and reverting to formula. Yesterday I decided to give it one last try and after re-adjusting it on the breast a couple of times I got amazing suction and pumped 2.5oz from one breast in just 3 minutes. I think the trick is to press it really firmly against your breast (so it's air-tight)and position your nipple in the center. You have to pump a couple of times to get it going (feels a bit uncomfortable), but then the milk really starts flowing. If you re-adjust every few mins. you can get even more milk by pressing on different ducts. I'm now using this pump INSTEAD of the electric one as it's so much quicker. Your shoulder and arm get a bit sore, but as I'm able to pump a good amount in just 5 mins this is a small price to pay. So, if you want to pump while traveling or just to relieve engorgement, this is definitely the pump for you. It's quick and easy to use and much more discreet than the Medela. I'm so glad I persevered!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Stay At Home Moms & Occasional Pumpers, January 19, 2004
In my experience, I have found this breast pump to be perfect for those of us who need to pump an occasional bottle or to relieve engorgement. The Isis pump is easy to use once your milk supply has been pretty well established. Also, it is very handy, simple to assemble, easy to clean, and comfortable to use. You may find it helpful to consult a breastfeeding book or La Leche League leader if you encounter any initial trouble getting milk out (I did the latter and it helped tremendously!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one I have tried!!!!!, March 24, 2003
This pump is awesome!!! I have tried the expensive Medela electric pumps (which turned my nipples purple from the suction), and this pump far surpasses the others!! I have two and use both at the same time. The "petals" press into your breast with each pump of the handle and simulate the baby's tongue. No other pump has this feature!! The other pumps just pull your nipple out two inches, and it isn't the pulling that stimulates let down, it's the massaging that the "petals" and your baby does that stimulates let down. That is a huge misconception for many women. They assume that if the pump doesn't hurt and your nipple isn't being pulled two inches from your body that it isn't working. If the pump hurts, you shouldn't be using it. This pump does not hurt!! I have to admit when I first tried it, I was one of those women who thought, "well this doesn't feel like much; must not work very well." I was wrong! I let down faster for this pump than I ever have for the Medela pumps! My arm doesn't get tired like it did when I used the Medela manual pump (pulling out the plunger), and it's easy to clean. It's also easy to sterilize. It is very compact compared to other pumps as well. I can't say enough good things about this pump. I am also very impressed with the company and the wonderful service I received when I called them!! The representative spoke with me on the phone for 40 minutes instructing me on the proper use and cleaning of the pump. She went through step by step how to assemble it and even sat on the phone with me while I tried it for the first time! She also advised that using antibacterial dishsoap was not recommeded as it breaks down the nipples after long term use. She had great tips on sterilizing and expressing. I really felt at ease and taken care of.
As far as the cracking that other reviewers spoke of, I was advised that you should NEVER over tighten the neck of the pump just above the bottle. This is the part that will crack and it's operator error and not poor quality of the pump.
Expressing is something to be learned and mastered. For some it isn't easy and it takes practice. It shouldn't be given up on after one try! Your body also needs time to adjust and get used to the feel of the pump. One thing that the representative shared with me is to pump at the same time as nursing. That way, your body becomes accustomed to it.
I would recommend this pump over any other! I am very pleased with the results and the company!! Don't buy the 200 dollar pump without first trying this one!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really really great pump!!!, May 28, 2002
This review is from: Avent Isis Manual Breast Pump (Baby Product)
This is the third pump that I have tried and I love it. I started with a manual Medela that I got from the hospital and it worked okay except that the pumping motion made my back hurt. So, I got an electric Evenflo model. This pump is terrible! It hurt a lot and didn't work, so I took it back and got the Avent Isis. It is wonderful! It worked so well that took it with me when I went back to work and could easily pump 10 ounces in 10 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Efficient, inexpensive, and portable, July 3, 2007
I have used this pump through all 3 of my children (I bought it in 1999), I can definitely say I've gotten my money's worth! I have nursed a total of 6 years, and this little pump has held up so well - I've not had a single problem with it.
The pump is small, very portable (compared with electric counterparts), and 20% of the price of the popular double electric models.
Your milk pumps directly into an Avent bottle, in which you can then store the milk or feed immediately.
There are some small pieces that need to be washed after each use - this can be difficult when on the road - this was really the only thing I considered less than ideal about the pump (although I'm not sure there's any avoiding that).
Every woman's body is different, so I cannot claim that this pump will work for everyone as well as it has for me. I didn't plan to use it as much as I did when I bought it (I didn't return to work full time, so I didn't think I'd need a double electric pump), however I ended up donating milk to a local milk bank after my first child was born. With this pump only, I pumped 12 oz every morning for my oldest child's first year. This took me about 15 minutes each morning.
For me, this pump has been economical, efficient, portable, and easy to use. It's obviously a personal thing - a pump can work great for one woman and poorly for another, but I have been extremely happy with this one.
5.0 out of 5 stars The only pump you'll ever need, June 2, 2005
Near the end of my pregnancy I bought the Isis manual pump in anticipation of relieving any engorgement between feedings. I thought I would need to invest in the Medela electric pump when I went back to work. Not so. The Isis has been the perfect pump. At work it's fast and completely quiet. In 10-15 minutes I've been able to comfortably pump up to 10 ounces of milk at the office (or just about anywhere, for that matter). I just pour it out of the bottle and into a bag and I'm done! My son is now 15 months old and it's still the only pump I use.
Early on I had problems with getting enough (or sometimes any) suction. While pushing the pump securely to the breast is important, making sure the little star shaped valve is pushed completely in (with stars facing up) is critical. Once I figured that out, I never had a problem.
Cleanup is very easy too. I'm glad I didn't waste $300+ dollars on a big electric pump. For 1-4 pumpings a day, this is the only pump I've ever needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Avent Isis really works!, October 6, 2002
I purchased the Isis pump for use during my maternity leave, and when I went back to work, I went out and rented the Medela hospital grade pump. Much to my surprise, this little manual pump allows me to express as much milk as the double electric in the same amount of time (maybe an extra 5 mintues at most). The best part is no need to hassle with electricity, etc. I am completely impressed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works better than the electric and manual pumps I have used, May 30, 2004
Though I can only compare the Avent Isis manual breast pump to the manual and electric Medela pumps, I believe the Avent deserves five stars. Experienced friends and lactation consultants had steered us toward Medela. Due to a health a concern, I needed to pump and discard my milk for a few days and feed my baby using a bottle. All I had available was my manual Medela pump, which is meant only for occasional use or to relieve engorgement.
However, from the first session, I found it very tiring and cramping to my hand and forearm as well as resulting in nipple soreness/bruising on medium suction (with the suction closer to the "minimum" setting, which was less painful, I had to pump longer to get the needed milk to keep up my supply, thereby causing more fatigue and a rather lengthy session). On average, I would estimate that I pumped about 2.5 to 3.5 ounces from one breast in 20 to 30 minutes. The electric model, which I used in the hospital, was of course easier since it did the work for me, yet even it did not work as quickly or comfortably as the manual Isis pump. Additionally, I was never able to completely empty either breast with the manual Medela pump, with up to 40 minutes of pumping. I thought that if I tried to pump that long again, my arms would fall off or my breast would respond with far too much milk production the next time my milk let down. : )
The Avent Isis pump was such a relief for me. The soft petal cushion does make a difference in comfort for the breast and encouraging let-down reflex. You are instructed to pump 5-6 times rapidly to aid the let-down reflex and then to start a 2-3 second pumping cycle. It really works! The milk flows out continuously for the time you have the handle depressed and sometimes even continues to flow as you let go. The handle is easy to pull, you have good control of the amount of suction on your breast, you control how fast you want to pump, and I found that my hand and arm did not get sore and cramped. I have been consistently able to pump 4-5 ounces from one breast, typically in less than 10 minutes. To pump enough for one feeding I can have the job done in about 15 minutes, and comfortably too.
It is a pleasure (relatively speaking) to use the Avent Isis. If the Lord blesses us with another child, I would definitely use this pump to relieve engorgement, store away some breast milk in the freezer, or use it on a daily basis if that were to become necessary. Even if someone offered to buy me an electric pump, I think I would still choose to use the Avent Isis (maybe there are electric pumps out there that are better than the Medela). The Isis really is that good. It is surprising to find a product that works as well as it claims to, so comfortably and quickly too. I would not hesitate to purchase this product again, as well as to recommend it to others. Hope you it works as well for you. : )
A couple of notes:
1) the pump does sometimes make a "creaking" noise if you pull the handle fully. This noise is less annoying
to me than that of the motor of the electric Medela pump or the "whoosh" and squeak of the Medela manual pump. Maybe I say that because I like the Isis so much.
2) the Medela and Isis manual pumps have about the same amount of assembly and cleaning requirements. I found neither brand to be confusing or tedious after the first time or two of getting used to each one's particular design.
3) for the amount of money spent (around $45.00 US) both my husband and I think that it was a good investment in a product that delivers on its promises.
4) as with any product, it is essential to follow the instructions closely. The Isis's parts do seem to have a more perfect seal when it is assembled while wet. Once your breast begins to soften as the milk is pumped, you will need to support your breast to maintain good suction. The process is so fast though, that I don't mind this (the same instruction applies to the Medela, concerning breast support).
5) recently, I have found the best disposable breast pads to be Lansinoh and Gerber (the thin kind with the adhesive strip). Evenflo and Johnson's did not work well at containing leaking. breast pump avent breast pump medela breast pump avent breast pump medela

5.0 out of 5 stars From a Full time Pumper - EXCELLENT!!!, August 18, 2005
I had extremely sore nipples even with a proper latch and my lactation consultant in the hospital suggested pumping. She told me don't even bother with an electric pump if I had this one. I was skeptical and bought a playtex embrace as well just in case. Weelllllll, this pump works 100% better!!! Just this morning I pumped over 7 oz for my 2 and a half week old (almost 3 feedings!!!). With the embrace I was only getting maybe 4 oz. Even though it didn't take as long because it is a duel one. I'd rather pump a lil longer and get more! Also the isis pump doesn't hurt as much as the embrace does. However, I did have to take the massaging let down cushion out of the isis because i wasnt getting much with it and my nipples are too large for it. The best thing about this pump is despite all the articles saying I wouldnt be able to feed him breastmilk for every feeding I'm able to and I'm also able to freeze half of what I pump every day since I pump way more than enough!!! My milk supply has even gone way up since my milk first came in just by using this pump. I can't say enough good things about it!!!
I havent had any problems with the pump losing its suction or anything breaking. It's easy to clean...if you wash it in warm soapy water after every use you wont have any problems with the silicone parts wearing down or turning colors. I dont wash my baby items in the dishwasher. I trust my hands more.
Like I said I use only this pump full time 10-12 times a day and have never had any problems!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously Affordable, November 27, 2003 breastpump avent breast pump medela breastpump avent breast pump
This is a great little pump. It is affordable, which is one of the features that makes it is great (having a baby, especially the 1st one, is expensive enough).
You can use the Avent bottles and magic cups interchangably for milk storage, so there are fewer things you have to wash. This is awesome because there isn't much time for working around the house with a new baby.
This pump also stores quite well in the Avent microwave steam sterilizer. After sterilizing it, I just leave it in the sterilizer. I know it's out of the way and I also know where all of the parts are.
Get some extra sealing discs. I had a ton of bottles, so I didn't want to spend the extra money for the breast milk storage containers. I just about a pack of the sealing discs that fit the bottles (in this case Avent because that's what I have). It is a great way to get more use out of those bottles.
I noticed that there are extra parts available for this pump. I haven't had to purchase them, but I am really glad to know that they are available, should some part need to be replaced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best hand pump on the market!, June 8, 2007 breast pump avent breast pump medela

I purchased this hand pump when my 5 year old was born and used it to pump at home while I nursed him exclusively for a year (I used an electric pump when I was working). The pump is comfortable on your skin, and is easy to use with one hand and the suction matches that of an electric pump without all of the noise. It's awesome. I saved it and I'm now using it with my two month old. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars It really does work as well as my electric pump, April 19, 2006 breastpump avent breast pump medela

The reviews on the Isis box say things like -- "more efficient than my electric pump..." and "works better than the two more expensive pumps that I own..."
I always scoff at these reviews. But let me just say, in this case they are true. (Not that people probably aren't also scoffing at this review... oh the irony.. but I digress)
Bottom line is that this pump does express as much as my electric Medela Pump in Style. Yes, it takes longer as you have to do each breast separatley but it is GENIUS.
Incredibly comfortable and totally silent (ok, it squeaks if one of the inside pieces gets loose but then you just pop it back in).
