Agree....tommee tippee electric breast pump not the best...very difficult to use...takes an age
My wife had the Tommee Tippee manual pump and got on well with it. She then bought this electric version and found that the suction wasn't strong enough to express hardly any milk, so she quickly went back to the manual version and the electric one now goes unused. I think there are much better electric pumps on the market than this one.

Yes, they're very good*. Allows you to move around freely and get on with other things, rather than being 'plugged in' - which often means being stuck on a sofa. They are quiet, giving off just a gentle low pumping noise, like a loud heartbeat. The Bluetooth functionality seems a bit gimmicky imo, but could be useful for those who like to track everything. *The one big downside is that they seem prone to develop battery issues. There are lots of reports on social media about them suddenly not charging. It's what happened to one of ours. Elvie quickly dispatched a new one, but a hungry baby can't go 48-72 hours whilst you wait for a replacement. As such, I'd always recommend having a back up (either a 2nd, or a manual pump).
For those with just the one superboob.
And just like that the price is back up to £211 - hope you got the deal whoever was tempted
Lol. Wife just ordered. Great price vs rrp of £250 - they seem to have discounted an already discounted price..... Probably a mistake.
My friend has one & loves it!

If you can go all out, I would recommend renting the hospital grade Medela Symphony. It's a free standing model but it is quiet and frankly, amazing. This is what I used while in the hospital. The portable machine was no match for it. https://www.medela-rental.co.uk/ The one I borrowed was this one. It was noisier, but not to the point it was offputting. The Medela Swing sounded like a lawnmower. This was more like a manual balloon air pump. https://www.ardobreastpumps.co.uk/shop/calypso-double-breastpump/?language=en¤cy=GBP¬ax=1/&gclid=CjwKCAiAzNj9BRBDEiwAPsL0d2aASvVGaMCL7xD9erHRSMREDblXmuD4vbNDOat9sfoXoHXhI8stERoC8WYQAvD_BwE
Which machine did you use in the hospital? I am looking to get one which is good value. Thanks!
I ordered this and hated it. It was so noisy and offputting. Wish I had done my research better and bought the same model as the one the hospital loaned me while my daughter was in NICU. Ironically would have been cheaper too.
i have a brand new manual one if anyone wants one :) we ended up with 2!
Can men who identify as women use this? 🤭

It’s not “men” buying them second hand, it’s people who aren’t fortunate enough to afford them brand new, I was fortunate and will pass mine on as it was a life saver for me, breastmilk isn’t “bodily fluid” and all parts can be sterilised. Pull yourself together.
You clean and sterilise all the parts each time before use, so it's not really different to hairdressers/beauty/dentists reusing their tools.
People buy these second hand??? Guaranteed it will be men.
FYI this thing is horrendously noisy (I bought the double). Good resale value though on ebay.
