miPump Double Electric Breast Pump Review : One of the first thing you will notice about the miPump is the size of it. It’s small and lightweight so you’ll be able to carry it with you easily. The second thing you will notice about the pump is the sound it produces when working. It’s quiet ! Really ! One thing I don’t like about electric breast pump is the amount of noise produced when working but the miPump is quiet for real and it’s great.
There is a good amount of (small) parts to assemble before to be able to use the pump but once you assembled it once or twice, it shouldn’t be too hard to remember how to do it.
The pump is easy to use. Once started, you only need to use the 2 buttons located on the front of it to customize the suction settings. One to increase the suction level and one to decrease it. The miPump offer eight suction levels (LED lights indicate suction level easily) so you should be able to find the right one for you.
This electric pump can also be battery operated which is great when you have to pump somewhere you can’t find an electric outlet like parks or even in the car. Of course, I’d recommend to carry extra batteries to make sure you always have enough power to maintain a good suction level.
The flexi-fit breast shields are made of soft material which is very comfortable and ensures a soft and proper fit. My girlfriend had some doubts about leaks but there’s no problem there. In fact, the soft material probably help reduce the leaks.
In the box, you will also find a handle that will help you double pump using only on hand. That’s a great addition and this is the first time I see this. While it’s a great idea, I think it’s not perfect yet simply because it’s not comfortable to use. The handle is kind of hard to use because the grip is located in the middle of the handle. Once the bottles are attached to the handle, there’s no way to find a comfortable position for your arm to support the handle because the bottles will take all the space. You’ll have to position your arm behind the handle and you’ll quickly experience tiredness in your arm.
Speaking of the bottles, the ones included in the package are 2 Breastflow bottles (5 oz. each) from The First Years. A Breastflow stage 1 nipple collar and hood is also include as well as 2 bottle storage lids.
Even if the pump is compact and can be carried everywhere, you have to remember that you’ll also have to carry the tubing, the bottles, the handle, etc… But, don’t worry, The First Years thought about it so they also include a stylish tote bag to help you carry all this discreetly. This is a nice bonus considering the low price ($79.99) of the pump.
The miPump Double Electric Breast Pump is affordable ($79.99), it’s quiet (the quietest one we tested), it comes with a stylish tote bag (a nice bonus) and it also includes a unique handle for easy double pumping using only one hand (great extra). It’s not perfect but it is one of the best breast pump we reviewed so far.
+ Quiet !
