Hi mommies! I only used pigeon breast pump. Ok din sya kasi it can be either electrical or battery operated kaya portable din. It can be converted to double pump just buy an extra hose and suction. U can also adjust the level from light to hard and speed of suction. It has small parts lang kaya kelangan extra careful sa paghahandle. I didnt use the rubber thingy na pampakapit sa nipple kasi masakit eh nakaka express naman kahit wala nun. Matibay naman kasi one year ko nagamit at napahiram ko pa sa cousin ko. Its really affordable kaya sulit! I think its around P2.5K... not sure na ha basta di lalagpas ng P5k yun. ;D
 
this is the one na may maliit na unit not the portable one na nakadikit yung bottle?

Pigeon Breast Pump din binili ko, yung pwedeng battery or with electrical adaptor. nasa almost 3k na ata siya when my mom bought it. Hindi ako agad bumili ng pump kasi gusto kong makasiguro na I have breastmilk. Sayang din kasi kung bibili ako tapos wala pala akong milk.  7months ko rin nagamit kasi 'til 7months lang ako nagbreastfeed. ok naman siya :)

hi mga sis, i'm selling my Philips Avent Manual breast pump (on-the-go set). Almost brand new po kasi hindi ko sya gaano nagamit dahil less than 2 weeks lang ako nakapagbreast feed tapos andito lang naman ako sa bahay so no need for breast pump pa talaga at that time. nung bumalik naman ako sa office after my maternity leave, wala na talaga akong maproduce na milk.

i will be selling just the following items:
- philips avent isis breast pump
- insulated travel bag and cool packs (never had the chance to use kaya brand new talaga)
- this set includes breast pads, instruction manuals, and spare parts.

hindi ko po ibebenta yung kasamang mga bottles since my baby's using it. just pm me for actual pic and details. thanks!

I am using a Spectra double electric breast pump. Pinahiram sa akin ng pinsan ko. Happy ako kasi nakalibre ako. Ang mahal mahal kasi ng mga dual electric pumps. Kaya lang, bakit ganun? After 20 minutes of pumping, wala na lumalabas na milk from my breasts sa pump pero pag i-hand express ko sha, ang dami-dami pang laman! So imbes na dapat 15-20 minutes lang ang session ko, nagiging 30 minutes, sometimes 1 hour pa! Eh diba dapat empty ang breasts kundi kokonti ang milk supply? Tapos, pag hindi ko kasi ni-drain kadalasan nagka-clog ang ducts ko eh. Anybody else experience this? P.S. - minsan kapag malambot na ang nipples ko, nilalagay ko pa sa highest suction level yung pump.

For breastfeeding moms, which breast pump would you prefer, the manual (just like a nasal cleaner with pump) or yung katulad ng Avent, First years, or pigeon may handle and na-attach sa bote?

 :D..thanks for the info...

May you also message me what is the cheapest here in Philippine market na talagang ok naman at sing-functional dn ng mga branded...

Also which brand is trusted and very convenient, comfortable and easy to use, clean, and maintain. :o :) ;)

been using Avent Isis Manual pump for the past 10 months. just make sure you replace the parts as soon as it loses its suction.  ;)

^sa multiply and ebay may mga sellers ng spare parts ng avent.

i like avent and lansinoh pumps. i used to use lansinoh double electric before ito masira. more than 1 year ko din naman napakinabangan and super sulit sa akin. i also have avent manual and avent iq uno. love ko rin ang avent pumps ko. madali lang mag express ng milk using both brands and hindi masakit. i'll be having my lansinoh pump repaired and i'll most probably sell it na lang. sayang kasi nakatambak lang siya ngayon.

Moms, have you heard about Disney Breast pump that imitated the Avent ISIS breast pump?
Its only 749php at SM Makati DS baby section.

they tried it on my upper chest and the suction is almost the same (except the psychological fact that it is more comfortable w/ avent  because of the brand name :D)

the cons of Disney breast pump are: no spare parts available. no warranty. not sure if you can sterilize it together with your bottles on a Pigeon Rapid steam sterilizer(the one i will use :() the plastic handle is not that durable if you will seriously compare it with Avent. 749php for a pump is worth it assuming it will last 2-3 years.. however there are no testimony yet.. the pump is not precise w/ regards to the design, the silicone pad that will stick on your breast, the valve, and everything.
 
the pros of Disney Breast pump are: affordable talaga! fits avent bottles (however the sales lady and i had have a hard time on turning the Avent PP bottle.) it actually has the same pressure of suction w/ avent isis Breast pump... kaya lan may alangan talaga na feeling that i will just throw away my 749php diba kung makakabili naman pala ako ng Avent isis affordable than those @the market specifically SMmalls.. ...

Im planning to breast feed my baby until she stops drinking from her bottle (for 3 yrs maybe). unfortunately i will be working... that's why i want to make sure i will buy a product that is in my budget range (749php-4000php). i dont know yet if i can express milk but i think its psychological (if you want to express milk for your baby you will succeed on doing it).. im due this month but there are no signs of milk yet.. help me decide moms.. i know one of you has the same feeling like mine during the last days of pregnancy (its the feeling of being rushed but not necessarily needs to rush). thank you!
