There is nothing better you can give your baby than the health-enhancing benefits of breast milk. Phillips Avent’s range of breast pumps and accessories have been designed to help you do so for as long as you like, as easily as possible. The revolutionary design of our pumps has been acclaimed by mothers and health professionals worldwide.

The Phillips Avent Manual Breast Pump was the first ever designed to stimulate milk flow in a way that closely mimics the sucking action of a baby. There is simply no gentler, faster or more natural way to express milk. The Phillips Avent Manual Breast Pump has not only been clinically proven to be as effective as a hospital-grade electric pump – it was rated significantly more comfortable and pleasant to use.

  • Never again

    I was given this manual pump when I gave birth to my first born. I thought that i would give it a go, and let’s just say it was an utter failure. I felt like crying – from pain and frustration – every time that I used this pump. I am so glad that I converted to the electric pump instead. I will never go back



  • Avent Manual Breast Pump

    I bought this pump as well as my electric pump, and I have to say, I absolutely love it! It’s really comfortable to use, and has excellent suction. I find it even better than the electric pump, although my hand cramps up with the amount of squeezing that is necessary, I never have to worry about my batteries running low, or accidentally pulling the cord from the wall. :) I highly recommend this pump to anyone who wishes to express, it’s definitely a good purchase, and really not terribly expensive! It’s also really easy to clean, and the bottle is just the right size for an express and feed session. Love, Love, LOVE it!



  • very good

    I had bought this without being sure how I would cope but to my surprise it was easy to use and have advised all my friends to use it. I have never used electric breast pumps before I wouldn’t compare it but I preferred manual and it was useful when I went out as you cant always breast feed in public.



  • Nice and portable

    I use my advent pump as my portable / going to work pump. It’s great for that as it packs up small and I use the advent storage cups so no transferring to milk bags.



  • Easy to use.

    I found this breast pump very easy to use. Once I had put it together a few times I was able to pull it apart and put back together really quickly. It is fantastic to use and is quite quick and it can be cleaned by taking it apart and sterilising in the philips microwave steriliser. I would recommend this to all mums.



  • Comfortable, convenient, quality

    I used a different brand pump for our first 3 children, then swapped to the Avent manual pump for our 4th child. It was so much more comfortable than the other brand, I wish I’d discovered it earlier. The handle is easy to use, and I found it faster and easier to express than the other brand because of the different pumping action. The parts separate easily for cleaning and sterilising. I found the wide mouth bottles that attach to the avent pump worked well to store milk and baby fed well from the bottles because of the anti-colic ring with the bottles. I still used sterilised narrow necked bottles by tipping milk into them from the wide necked bottles, but only because I still had them in the back of the cupboard (and these I kept in the freezer as a backup).



  • Great essential for any mum

    If you haven’t gone down the electric path. This is the next best thing to have on hand.
    I’ve tried lots of different brands of manual pumps even ones that really hurt. And Avent is certainly the best.
    This makes he most perfect gift for a baby shower.
    Lots of bits to wash and sterilize but you seem to do it all in your stride.



  • more comfotable to use than other brands

    I bought one of these a week after my son was born because of unexpected breastfeeding trouble and it was the one recommended by the midwife. It too a little maneuvering initially to stop the leaks but eventually I got the hang of it and found it good. I later bought an electric pump in a different brand and that was when I realised just how comfortable the Avent pump was. I am pregnant with my second now and I am much happier to know that I have my Avent pump ready to use if needed.



  • So easy to use

    This was the only breast pump I used with both my boys and I went back to work quite quickly with both children. This was small so easy to use anywhere, gentle and simple to use and clean. Would recommend to anyone



  • Easy to use and somewhat mess free

    I did not mind this product actually, though I had a problem with leakage, unsure whether this was a user fAult or the product. It was easy to wash and use and I did find it comfortable. The price was a little expensive but I do believe the product is worth it. Mine lasted me through 3 pregnancies.



  • Avent is the BEST!

    Love the Avent breast pump. I started with the manual one first to see if I was actually going to use it and it was fantastic. It turned out that I did need to express a lot more as I had a premie baby and so I upgraded to the electric which I love even more. For those women who don’t express much though the manual pump is just fine and of course a lot more affordable. I highly recommend this pump and the bottles.



  • Great product mostly

    I loved my advent manual pump!it was easy to use and worked well although my hand got quite sore!i used to keep this in my nappy bag and have my electric at home.unfortunately mine broke and lost suction so I didn’t get to use it for very long but overall very happy



  • Very happy: has lasted for all three children

    I purchased this breast pump whilst I was breast feeding my son, and it is still working well with bubs number three (3+ years later). All if the parts still work as good as new, and I haven’t yet had to replace anything. Tip: it works without the plastic dome thinggy that covers the valve mechanism, so that’s one less thing to wash! I also like that it is relatively inexpensive: while possibly not as efficient as an electric pump (I hired one once on leaving the hospital and yes, it was awesome), I still found I was able to express a whole feed on a single pumping session.



  • Comfy & effective

    This is the only pump that would work for me. I tried other manuals & expensive electric pumps but I just couldn’t get a good amount of milk down. Three babies later and I’m still using this pump! I can express 180mls in just a few mins!



  • Recommend

    I used this product with all three of my children! It’s brilliant! It never hurt me and was always effective. I recommended it to many of my friends and they loved it too. I have all the Avent items, from bottles to dummy’s, sterilisers to baby food blender. It’s a brand I love and trust!
