I am a Medela PISA user, been using it for 7 months na. I was happy with it but i had a problem with it starting about 2 wks ago, I have been suffering from "low milk supply" lately and at first I thought it's because it's that time of the month, but it was going on for more than 10 days na, usually 3-5 days lang ako nag lolow output. As in, nappump ko na lang 1oz for 30 mins, usually 3-4oz around 20mins. So I bought a unimom manual pump, it was easy to use, and madami pa nakukuha kong milk, 3-4oz for 20mins. So I thought something was wrong with my medela. Hindi ko matanggap na there was something wrong, eh I purchased my medela from Amazon, hindi ko siya mapa service at medela house (bec of non-repair policy). So nag research ako, sabi sa medela website, dapat daw yung membrane flat daw sa valve. Eh yung membrane ko punit na. Pinalitan ko yung membrane with my extra pair and in 10mins, I was able to pump 4.5 oz! Yun lang pala prob, membranes have to be replaced. So medela users out there, baka membranes lang pala ang culprit sa "low milk supply". So, for me, if you are serious sa breastfeeding, medela pump will help you become successful, ok ang electric pump, mas mahal lang siya, Pero, mas ok ang manual pump, mura na, madali pang dalhin anywhere.

I am currently using the sesame street brand and napupump ko lang in 30 mins is less than 1 oz. Sa isang buong araw hindi umaabot ng 2oz yung napupump ko. parang feeling ko hindi lahat napupump niya. Iniisip ko tuloy kung low ang milk supply ko or yung pump lang mismo may problem. I am a working mom and before ako umalis ng house nagpapabreastfeed ako. paguwi nagpapabreastfeed din ako. I am thinking if I should buy another breast pump. I bought the sesame street brand at around P600 lang. Malaki kaya difference niya sa mga breast pump na worth thousand plus ang price. Anyone na nakagamit ng sesame street brand and tried the avent, pigeon and madela?

Hi sis! So far Medela is the best mommy-friendly breast pump.  Medyo expensive but worth the investment.  Plus, we appreciate the after-sales service and the free seminars they offer to their clients.  You can even call them if you have questions not only on how to use the pumps but on breastfeeding, too.  I suggest that you buy the pumps from them since they are the exclusive distributor here in the Phil.--there's warranty plus they have service center for their clients only.

hello! I am a working mom and been providing breastmilk to my second kid for 5 months na!!! I am using two breastpumps- avent manual and spectra dual electric pump. since I am working, I placed my electric pump sa office para I can express trice a day. happily, I bring 18-20oz daily. then pag uwi ko sa gabi, I pump again using my manual avent pump.nakakaipon din ko ng 4-6oz.
okay yung spectra na brand. matibay then kaya niya maubos talaga yung milk on both breatst. It's cheaper din compared to the popular brands. I bought  mine at 3900php lang. you can check babymama.ph for more options.
babymama.ph is a very useful other than providing the best pumps, the seller also gives great advices pa for breastfeeding. she sells other breastfeeding items din like supplements, covers, hands-free breatspump bras etc... try to browse. nice sya,.

i bought a spectra dew 350.

i opted to do exclusive breastfeeding pero exclusive pumping since 2 weeks old pa lang si baby....

late na kasi ako nakapagbasa ng threads nung nagka nipple confusion na siya ayaw niya na sa breast ko tsaka kulang supply ko kasi after ko siya ifeed, she cries a lot pa rin pero when we give her formula, she would fall asleep na.

read a lot of reviews before buying a dual electric pump and then finally deciding on spectra 350, un kadi yung wala masyadong bad reviews though meron ding konti :) and it helps in building the supply...

my only aim is to exclusively feed my baby with breastmilk only and luckily, i did it.

after a little iver two weeks, nagawa ko na din sya and may konting buffer na ko for her next feeding....

Ako din spectra 350 yung binili namin. Akala ko dati masakit yung pump pero hindi naman pala. Nagtry ako ng manual pero nakakangawit kasi yun unlike sa electric. medyo malaki nga lang yung spectra 350  kaya hassle dalhin sa office pero it really helps me to build a stash of breast milk.  I also intend to provide breastmilk for our baby  until she's  1 yr. old. Sana magawa ko. 4 mos. na siya ngayon. ^_^. Nabili ko yung pump sa babymama.ph. Pati milk storage bags dun na din ako nagoorder.
