Lansinoh’s 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump is comfortable, durable and effective. It includes two phases – ‘let down’ and ‘express’ and offers variations in suction strength. The timer is also a nifty feature. 

The dual-pump functionality is convenient and time-saving although not that easy to use; with both hands occupied it’s difficult to change settings whilst pumping. The pumps themselves are soft and the bottles are a good size. The screen is big and easy to see during midnight expressing or bleary eyed days, and it’s easy to clean and assemble.

The pump is quite noisy and comes with only one breast cone. It uses batteries as opposed to a rechargeable battery unit, which would make it more portable. It is, however, excellent quality and highly efficient – great value for money!

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would absolutely recommend the Lansinoh double electric pump, thanks to its simplicity of use as well as the different phase settings. It is sleek and discreet in design, and the quality of the components feel high quality and robust. The digital screen makes it incredibly easy to alter the speed and suction, which makes for a really comfortable pumping experience.

How did this product make your life easier?     

For me, the 2 minute let down feature on the product sped up my let down and I managed to yield more milk, more quickly than my current pump does (Ameda Lactaline double electric). This makes life much easier for me now I am a mum of two, as I don't have the luxury of as much time as I did when I expressed milk for my first child.

Would you choose this product to win?

I prefer this pump over othersdue to its comfort and effectiveness at removing the maximum amount of milk in a short space of time. I managed to express milk very shortly after I fed my little boy, which is something I am not usually able to do and I try to pump a small amount prior to a feed because of this. The ability to adjust the settings digitally is an extra feature which makes the unit feel as high quality as it is effective.

What changes would you make to this product?

So far, I can't think of anything that I would change about this product. It seems that Lansinoh really know their stuff about mums who breastfeed, and have considered comfort, speed and simplicity as factors that will make mums' lives easier. Expressing milk when you have more than one child is a difficult thing to fit into your day, however I think this product will continue to make it easier to do this.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This pump is very easy to assemble and clean. It comes with two different sizes of breast cushion, which is really important, as using the correct size will help prevent soreness when pumping. It's a closed pump system which means it's more hygienic than an open system, in which milk can enter the tubing. I also like the foldaway storage bag, which is a brilliant added extra.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Using it as a double pump means that I can express milk twice as fast - always useful when you're a busy mum. Life is non-stop, and the last thing you really have time to do is sit down expressing milk, so anything that makes that job quicker is great! It's flexible enough that you can also use it as a single pump if you fancy pumping one side, while baby feeds off the other.

Would you choose this product to win?

I really love this breast pump. I think it's great, and I would actually choose it over the single electric pump that I bought with my first son. It's an amazing pump, really effective and efficient, and most of all, when you're spending a fortune on a new baby, the cost of this pump is so reasonable.

What changes would you make to this product?

I really don't think I'd change anything. It's fantastic. I guess if I was being really picky, I'd ask for some extra milk storage bags, and it'd be worth including a leaflet about the bras that hold the pump in place, as it's quite tricky to hold two bottles at once when you have other kids needing your attention. Some mums won't know about the bras, so it'd be a good upsell opportunity too :)

Tested by mum Stacey Jeebooah for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this product to a fellow breastfeeding mother! I love that it is versatile and can be a single breast pump or double breast pump. Since receiving this product, expressing has been made more enjoyable, and am able to do it in half the time with the double functionality. It is very easy to use, and I like that there are two sized cones in order to be comfortable as possible for a range of sizes, and it is very comfortable. I like that there is a 'let down' function. The pump was packaged really very well and the pump comes with a plain black bag, so if you did need to travel it is very discreet and an ideal size for the pump.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The double breast pump makes my life much easier when I need to express. I used to have a single breast pump, so to have a double breast pump that also has a let down function, I am able to pump more milk in half the time... it's such a revolution to me! Also, the timer on the LCD screen makes life easier as I used to time myself for a set time on each breast by using my phone, now I don't need to as it's on the pump. The LCD screen is lit which is great when I pump of an evening in low lighting.

Would you choose this product to win?

It has been a lovely experience pumping with this two in one breast pump. It is very comfortable, all very easy to clean and to store in the bag. Sleeping time of an evening is very precious once baby is asleep, so to have time spent on expressing halved due to the double functionality, is just brilliant! The one thing that really stands out for me is the let down setting, which I've never used before. It's fantastic for stimulating and initiating the milk flow. I love that the pump comes with a plain black shoulder bag which is great for transportability and very discreet if I needed to express whilst out and about.

What changes would you make to this product?

One thing that can be an issue is that you need to hold two bottles with one arm or hand whilst using the controls with the other hand. This probably isn't very efficient when expressing as the bottles and breast cushions could move, not achieving the best suction. Also, for busy mums who may want to check emails on their iPads etc, not having a spare hand free could be an issue. So if there was a way in which the bottles could be held to the breast more easily with only one arm and hand, then this would be taking this already fantastic product, one step further for convenience.

Tested by mum Louise Goodman for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend this double electric pump to a fellow mum for many reasons. It is lightweight, portable and powerful to name a few. I really like the way that it can be used as either a single or double pump and it is a closed system so no milk can get in the tubing and it is therefore a very hygienic method of expressing. It can be used with mains power or batteries making it versatile for different situations.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This product makes my life easier as a mum as it allows me to express milk effectively and efficiently to allow other caregivers to feed my baby if required. It is lightweight and can be used with either batteries or mains power which means I can take it with me if I'm travelling unlike other cumbersome expressing systems.

Would you choose this product to win?

I feel it has all the features any pumping mum would require from a pump. It is portable, it can be used as either a single or double pump, it is a closed system, it is comfortable to use due to the silicone on the ends of the flanges, and most importantly it is effective in expressing milk with the let down phase and expression phase of which there are three styles to suit the individual user.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I would change about this pump is that it would be good if it came with a system so you could pump directly into one of the same brand milk storage bags which you could then attach a momma teat onto like another well known brand of pumping system. Apart from this, I can't think of anything else I'd change.

Tested by mum Jenna Hirst for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I like the versatility of being able to use this as a single pump or double pump, and the adaptability of being able to alter speed and strength of the pump. The unit is relatively quiet and expressing was easy and comfortable. It was good that it came with two cup sizes to ensure a comfortable fit easily.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Breastfeeding twins it's hard to find time to express, so being able to express from both breasts at the same time, halting pumping time was very useful. It's great that it works from mains and from batteries, making it easy to take it places and not just use at home. It was nice that it comes with a bag to keep all the bits together neatly and safely.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would chose this over single pumps as it halves pumping time. It is easy to wash and sterilise, and easy to put together and take apart. I like that the unit makes each session adaptable, and it was easy to create a profile for each session depending on how I was feeling and how much I'd been feeding that day.

What changes would you make to this product?

I liked that you could store expressed milk in the bottles that were expressed into - but the bottles could have been bigger as I kept having to empty and reattach the bottles through the session.

Tested by mum Sally Dudley for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Yes! It is good, light weight electric pump with the bonus of being able to use batteries as well. The instructions were in very small text which was hard to follow at times, but once all put together it was very simple and effective. The carry bag is a nice touch too! Being able to use it as a single pump whilst also feeding was really useful and effective. It has a good seal so no leakage whilst pumping.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Being able to pump both breasts at the same time means I saved time and was able to express more. It was also very effective so I got more off than with my had pump. Its very quick and easy to disassemble to clean and sterilize.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

A quick set up guide on a piece of card in larger text would have been good. The instruction manual was quite daunting and actually, once I started, the set up was far more simple than I expected. Also, maybe provide two different sized cups rather than two the same. I was ok with the ones provided but they are quite small and I could imagine some people finding them too small.

Tested by mum Loiuse Parr for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I liked the design of this pump as it did not look too clinical and was a nice color. The storage bag was very useful too. I was disappointed that I did not seem to be able to express very much milk compared to other pumps. The breast shields were too big and didn't create enough suction. It was very weak.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I liked the bag which made it easy to travel.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would change the breast shield size and it was too big and I think that is why the suction was so weak.

Tested by mum Chris Brotherton for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Love the idea of changing from one pump to two, can't recall the option to do this with any others, great flexibility for milk output. Can be used on mains or batteries, which means you have a bit more freedom if you are on the go or in the car for instance. Easy to clean after a few disassemblies as there are rather. Few parts to aseemble.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I love the choice to have one or two pumps, obviously I get A LOT more milk when double pumping and this is great for planning ahead or getting stuff done quicker. I love using batteries and being able to sit out side or away from the plug, you can relax a bit more.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The option to use rechargeable batteries would be so helpful and lower costs of replacing spent batteries.

Tested by mum Katy Orr for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This pump is an attractive design with lots of curves and smooth edges.  It is a handy design and the controls are easy to use.  The funnels are comfortable and have extra plastic padding.  Although the diaphragms are a pretty colour it would be useful to attach them better to the pump.  The teat provided with the bottle is excellent, smooth and comfortable for the baby's mouth.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

As a twin mum, expressing milk is almost obligatory. It is important to do this with a product that is easy and quick to use (actually this product is the least efficient of the ones that I have used) so that you can store milk to give at a different time or by a different person...a double pump saves time.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I found that the maximum power setting was not strong enough.  Although comfortable this meant that pumping took longer than usual and that pumping did not fully empty my breasts.  The instructions suggest not to sterilise in the microwave.  My steriliser is a quick and easy microwavable one and it would be better if you could use thia pump in conjunction with it.
