Tommee Tippee is one of those companies that you trust! They have been around for such a long time and back when everyone used them.
When we received sippy cups in the mail from them a long time ago, both my mother, Jon's mother, and Jon all recognized the name. It's a very popular brand and most everyone has heard of them!
This time I was fortunate to receive the Closer to Nature Electric Breast Pump.
Everything you need is included.
It comes with the pump which plugs in OR can take batteries to make it portable. It comes with one 5oz bottle, all the necessary parts to hook the bottle up to the pump, 2, 2oz storage containers for storing in the fridge or freezer, a sterilizer case which is also great for storing everything, some breast pads and a couple extra parts.
Everything all together, ready for pumping.
The shield pops off easily for cleaning.
Then this part unscrews for easy cleaning
Then the main pump area unscrews from the bottle
All the parts.
Or you can leave it together and just unscrew from the bottle itself.
The bottle, which comes with a nipple and cap.
There is also a little pod that the bottle sits in. Great for on the counter.
So I've gotten to use this pump quite a bit since breast feeding hurts me a lot. I've been using it so I can get something in him but it's less painful for me. It works quite well! The only downfall is it's a single pump and not a double.
You push the power button and let it go for a few minutes. It will bring on your let down, then you can choose which setting you want, setting 1 is short and frequent pumps, setting 2 is medium and frequent pumps and then setting 3 is long and semi frequent pumps. It's more powerful for 3 too. It's whatever you can handle basically.
I find setting 2 or 3 does the best for me. I turn it on, get it to suction and latch and then turn it to level 2 or 3. Since my milk isn't in yet it is okay to not wait for let down, since there really isn't one.
The whole pump is BPA free too which is awesome.
One downfall is that there is only one bottle. So after each pumping session you need to pour it into another bottle to put in the fridge.
Price: This electric pump is $129.99. Babies R Us carries it. They also have 6, 4oz storage pods with storage container for $13.99 for easier storage.
Overall: *****. This pump works for what it's intended for!
