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.

    Great and Easy to use.

    Iv always used the avent manual pump and found it so easy to use, it suctioned and pumped really well, was fast and very easy to pull apart and clean.

    Easy. Convenient. Effective.

    As a first time mum I made a goal to breastfeed for at least 6 weeks even though I was unsure if I would struggle to breastfeed, so I decided to get a manual pump because they are not as expensive. I’m so glad I did because even though they are a little more work than an electric, I can control the pumping more which for me was more comfortable. I had used an electric one in hospital and it was great but considering I only pump once or twice a day elexteic was not worth the money. I love my avent manual comfort breast pump. easy tobuse…easy to clean and does its job!

    I bought this before my first born, used it a few times only (in the first few weeks when breast feeding directly was too painful). Luckily bubba and I adjusted and now I don’t need to use the pump. OK for the occasional use, but can get tiring on a late night continually pumping trying to stay awake.

    I Got mine back in 2003 when i had my first child and it was wonderful!
    I got mastitas and my boobs constantly hurt the only thing that would releive the pressure was this pump. I loved the fact i could control how much pressure was used and it felt comfortable to me and my DD’s.
    Years later when i had my second and third child i used it again to build up my supply and then to store extra – for that one night away – and i have reccomended it to other future mums and friends of mine.
    The best part was how easy it was to clean and i could steralise the whole thing in the microwave.

    Easy enough to use a little bit painful.
    Hard to clean though.

    My baby is 7.5 months old and I had given up on expressing as my milk supply has settled down to the point where I was not able to express anymore. With the offer to test the Phillips Avent Pump I decided to give it another go – esp as I need to return to work soon.

    The Avent Pump is very comfortable and extremely easy to use. By using the pump a couple of times a day my milk supply has slowly increased so that I am now able to express again. What a relief!

    This is a fantastic pump to use. I have coupled it with the storage cups so I can just pop the milk straight into the freezer – so convenient.

    Thanks Avent!

    What a relief! I had an awful thumping headache last night. My hubby offered to get up and give our 4mth old his night feed using some expressed milk I had in the fridge, which I had pumped earlier that day. Thank goodness for the Advent pump!

    If you are expecting or a new Mum -This is the pump to buy! I found it very easy to put together, comfortable to use and it very quickly triggered my ‘let down’.
    The instructions inside were very informative – I learnt quite a few things! I also love how you can fit either size Avent bottles onto this pump.You can adjust the pressure with your hand so it will perfectly adapt to any womans style of expressing. Remember expressing takes time to get the hang of, and remember to relax, if possibly express while baby is feeding on one side as this often helps.
    Keep persevering with breastfeeding, ask for help if you hit problems, if you get mastitis or painful blockages, get this pump on before a feed, it will help to clear it faster.
    Breastfeeding is the best start for your baby….a lovely lactation consultant said to me once “What you can do for your babies immune system by breastfeeding for at least its first year of life it carries for the next 80 years”.
    Well done Avent for coming up with a smart range of products that make life easier for breastfeeding mums!

    I wish that I could have given this a proper review, but I’m still only expecting my first child. I’m 38 weeks. I will say that I bought an electric pump before signing up for this review and the manual one looks far less complicated and actually looks like it will be a lot more comfortable to use. Unfortunately I haven’t used it yet though so I can’t give a very thorough review. I’ll be sure to post a proper review once I’ve had a chance to use it :)

    I have been using the pump for over a week now and my milk supply had increased significantly. My baby slept 12 hours last night (yay!!) and I didn’t want to wake him to feed him. I used the pump to express some milk as I needed to get some out for my own comfort. I have a good supply in the freezer and even managed to go out for a little while the other day on my own, while my hubby looked after our bub. It was nice to have a little break and know that I didn’t have to rush home to feed now that we have some ready to go. I am very happy with the pump and would recommend it.

    I’m still using my Avent breastpump and still loving it. It is so easy to take apart to clean and put back together. I have the Avent microwave steam steriliser so it is made to fit the breastpump in perfectly – fantastic idea to have everything that fits together so nicely. I bought the Avent milk storage system too so am now building up a supply in the freezer!! :)
    Thanks Mouths of Mums for the chance to try this great product!!

    I used my Philips AVENT Manual Breast Pump for the first time yesterday as I had to express milk to attend a business meeting. Having arthritis in my hands I thought that pumping manually may be difficult or painful, so the biggest plus for this product so far from my perspective is how easy and painfree it was to use. The pump action is quite powerful and easy to operate with just one hand, and does not require much force to operate. The second biggest plus is that I found it very comfortable to pump, and the feeling was not dissimilar to breasyfeeding my baby with the milk flowing freely after only a few seconds.
    Some other positives were:
    - the pump is easy to take apart and put back together- especially if you read the instructions first!
    - the clear design of all components makes it easy to see if milk is flowing through the pump properly
    - The pump bottle is compatible with my Philips Avent teats

    The only negative I experienced was to do with the valve. First of all I had it in the wrong way (pays to read the instructions first), and naturally the suction does not work when the valve is inserted incorrectly. Secondly, after correct insertion the pump became dislodged half way through pumping and had to be taken out and re-inserted. As the valve is quite fiddly to insert some thought could be given to improving this aspect of the product in the future.

    Overall I was very impressed with the pump and will continue to use it and would recommend it to others looking for a simple, effective breastpump that is painless to use even if you have issues with arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome.

    This morning was my first go at using the Avent manual breast pump and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use. I already have an electric and a manual breast pump (both different brands) and it has been great to compare the 3 different brands.

    I particularly liked the fact that the Avent is completely clear allowing you to see the milk flowing through from the breast to the bottle (some have frosted components that don’t allow this). The Avent is extremely comfortable, pain free and isn’t too large and clunky, which makes for good handling.

    In regards to assembly and cleaning again, it is easy to pull apart and put back together quickly, which is a bonus when you are time-poor and trying to fit in time to express.

    I’d definitely recommend the Avent manual to other mums.

    Great quality for the price

    I have been an Avent manual breast pump user for over 2 years now and am very happy with it. Unlike other brands this has never lost suction and is easy to use and clean. I used mine regularly and even took it out and about with me. Was easy enough to wash and sterilize and with the convenient carry case could take it anywhere, including back to work with me! Thanks Avent, made breast feeding and storing milk much easier.

    I have one of these & I have to say I do not like it. I never really worked for me & I ended up just putting I away in a cupboard & hiring an electronic pump from the hospital. I found the suction wasn’t sufficient & it didn’t have enough umph to do the job well.

    I purchased one of these breast pumps after a nasty bout of mastitis, it was a miserable time for all involved but the avent pump was so gentle and easy to use. I especially like the ‘drawing’ action it has, it seems to encourage a natural letdown rather that trying to force the milk out. Its also super easy to pull apart and clean and importantly easy to put back together! I’d highly recommend it for anyone with a new baby, establishing a good feeding routine can be a little tricky in the early weeks, I exclusively breast feed but wish I had of had the pump on hand from day one. I also use it to express before a feed to slow down my jet powered letdown that bub was having a bit of trouble handling.

    Got this on sale with my first baby and I found that using it was hard for me personally. I found it didn’t provide adequate suction for me to be able to pump hardly anything out at all. All that effort and I wasn’t able to get a lot out! Then I had to take apart all those pieces and wash it! I lost the instructions so guessing it wasn’t easy either!

    I think if you can get it on sale, and are able to get adequate supply from it – then it presents great value as an emergency pump. If I was pumping full time, I would not be getting this at all.

    I ended up giving it away on Gumtree.

    I wish I had gotten a automatic one, and for some reason it needed to be slightly loosened in order to get a good flow of milk out, very over priced for what it is.

    I bought this way back in 2007 with my first born. I loved it and found it simple to use (although it can take a bit of time to pump, if the flow is slow). i loved the fact that my hubby could do one of the night feeds on occasion. I love how we could just put the bottle top on and away we went. Fantastic! I ended up passing mine on to a friend.
