I bought this pump right after I had my first child. I only pump 1-2 days a week and it worked very well for me. I like the let down phase and all the levels of suction. It was easy to learn how to use it, and putting the parts together and taking them apart for cleaning is very easy. I like that it can run on batteries as well as plugging into the wall. I have used it standing (it comes with a long strap/string and I found I could put that on my shoulder and still have one hand free to do other things while I pumped) and in the car with out problem. It is small and easy to take along. It does make noise. I do get questions when I use it at work even though I always pump under a shawl, I just see that as my chance to share my love of breastfeeding! I think that this pump is very durable I used it for over two years with two children and it worked very well. One part that is hard to clean is the tubing I have gotten milk in it a few times by not paying attention and over flowing the bottle, It was difficult to clean the milk out of the line and get the line dry again. I would recommend this pump to moms who want to pump occasionally!
