Mother & Baby 2018 Shortlist

At a glance:

With six different adjustable settings in each of the two phases, Lansinoh have designed this single electric pump to be small, but comfortable. Using the same technology as their gold award winning double pump for gentle expressing, the digital display is also a super handy feature worth mentioning. It can be tricky working out how to reassemble, so keep the instructions to hand.

What they say:

“Lansinoh’s Single Electric Breast Pump has been designed to help you express your precious breast milk both efficiently and discreetly. The pump is lightweight and you can either plug it into the electrical mains whilst at home, or you can insert batteries when you are on the move. Incorporating the very latest two-phase technology, the pump has six different suction levels that imitate your baby’s natural sucking action. The ‘let down’ phase produces a rapid suction action which stimulates milk flow, while the ‘expression’ phase has different settings enabling you to tailor the suction for your own comfort. The system also features an LED light up display, allowing you to express in low light conditions. Lansinoh guarantees that the innovative closed pump system will not let any milk enter the tubing.”

Tested by mum Hannah Ireland for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to other breastfeeding mums for a number of reasons. Firstly, I really like how the power cord and rubber suction tube are of a good length. This enables you to tend to your baby's needs if they happen to be in more than arm’s reach away from you. The pump is extremely easy to clean and sterilise, making me feel at ease when using it to pump milk and feed to my baby. The light display is very useful and enables you to immediately see what suction speed the pump is working at. The breast pump is also good value for money as it comes with additional attributes including a complete bottle, a sealing disk, a bottle holder and a few breastmilk bags.

How did this product make your life easier?

The product has enabled me to successfully express milk which then can be fed to my baby when I have to be apart from him. The long wire and suction tube also makes it easier to move around when expressing if needed. My son only takes milk from Lansinoh bottles so the fact that the pump connects to the Lansinoh bottles makes life a lot easier, as I can use the bottle for expressing, storing and feeding

Would you choose this product to win?

Although I do like using the breast pump and find it works effectively, there are other breast pumps on the market which I prefer, so therefore I don't think this one should be the winner. However, the one thing that I prefer about this breast pump is how it has the ‘light function’, which is a quick visual way of seeing which speed setting the pump is working at. When putting the pump together, I was able to suitably follow the instructions, however, the diagrams are slightly blurry which made it slightly difficult to name and identify the individual parts of the pump. I also think the breast pump is made up of a lot of pieces, initially making it difficult to remember how to put it together. Also, I found it was a lot bulkier and noisier than other breast pumps and also there is no travel bag for taking it away with you.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about the breast pump it would probably be to make it quieter whilst it is performing at its maximum speed. The breast pump makes a lot more noise than the other breast pumps that I have used. I would be very reluctant to use it in the same room as my sleeping baby as it would probably wake them.

Tested by mum Victoria Price for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend it to a mum because of the size as it is so easy to store. The design is nice and simple, especially for first time mums who haven't used a pump before. The price is affordable compared to many competitors and the cleaning of the product is simple. This product is also quick and easy to put together.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes my life so much easier! As I’ve returned to work, I am expressing every day to have extra supply. I have used a non-electric breast pump before but this is just so easy to use and easy to store. The sound isn't too loud so doesn't cause too much disruption when baby is asleep in the room, or when my husband is trying to watch television.

Would you choose this product to win?

I think this product should win as the main selling point is that it is easy to put together and not too noisy. It cups around the nipple securely compared to other pumps and my daughter enjoyed feeding from the bottle and was comfortable with the teat. The bottle also fits in holder nicely – it’s everything you need to express.

What changes would you make to this product?

One thing I would change would be the size of the tubes. I find them very hard to clean as they are small and I feel that if they were slightly wider it would be easier to clean or remove any air bubbles. It is nice that the tubes aren't bulky, but I find cleaning them very difficult.

Tested by mum Amber Smethurst for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product because it is comfortable, great sucking skills and it is fast! It is easy to use and easy to clean, and because it can be battery operated it’s amazing for a holiday. I would recommend this, especially to first time mums who want to breastfeed, due to how simple it is to use and how small and easy it is to store away and clean.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier as a mum as I can express a whole bottle of milk in five to ten minutes. It’s so simple to use and very easy to clean, which saves time especially with a crawling baby. It is so quick and easy to set up - takes next to no time to start expressing. Life is also easier because the pump is so compact that I can feed on one side and express on the other as it’s so lightweight.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product over any others I've tried due to the suction force and the fact it’s the quickest I've used that has been in a decent price range. I would choose it to win also due to the fact it’s easy to clean and store away. I also love the fact it has six settings so you can adjust it to your comfort.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would change the suction cup that goes over the nipple to come in different sizes, luckily, I have large boobs so it's comfortable, but some ladies have smaller boobs and the cup would cover the whole of their boobs. Maybe give an option upon purchase of small, medium or large?

Tested by mum Lindsey McCarthey for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

One of the most important things to consider when expressing is how comfortable the pump is. This pump is comfortable to ‘wear’ thanks in part to the breast cushion, which also provides a better seal to assist with the expressing. It was very simple to put together and take apart, and was also quite straightforward to clean and sterilise prior to use.

How did this product make your life easier?

Overall, the pump is easy to assemble, easy to use, easy to clean, and allows me to quickly express a large amount of milk, which is the most important element for me. One specific point which made it a lot easier is that the power cable is particularly long, which means that you can sit in comfort when pumping without having to worry about being close to an electrical socket.

Would you choose this product to win?

I think this is one of the best products on the market as it makes expressing so easy. The pump is really easy to operate and has a range of expressing strengths, however, it is the let-down function which I found most useful. This encourages the milk to flow which makes the whole process of expressing a lot quicker. I particularly like the fact that the pump automatically switches from the let-down phase to expressing after a couple of minutes.

What changes would you make to this product?

Although the pump itself was comfortable to use, I found that I couldn’t sit back comfortably in my chair to express as I prefer, and instead needed to lean forward slightly to ensure the milk flowed into the bottle. This wouldn’t necessarily put me off buying the product, but I think it is something that should be taken into account if Lansinoh were reviewing the design in the future.

Tested by mum Sarah Bennett for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to fellow breastfeeding mums as it is so easy to set up and very easy to use and clean. It not only allows you to express milk quicker, but also gives breastfeeding mums a break. This product was very easy to store and didn’t take up much space.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes a mums’ breastfeeding journey so much easier. It has a very lightweight pump and is very well made and designed. I also found it really easy to clean after use too.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product as it’s a good price and also has a good range of products to go with it. This brand is very well-known to breastfeeding mums and I would highly recommend it. In my opinion, it’s the best breast pump on the shop shelves.

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn’t change this product. It is a must-have!

Tested by mum Katherine Funnell for the Mother & Baby Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

The Lansinoh Single Electric Breast Pump is a simple-to-use and simple-to-clean product with no little bits that get lost or broken. It cleans easily and is microwave steriliser safe. It is small and will easily fit into the changing bag if needed to be used whilst out. It pumped off much more milk than a manual pump and doesn't cause any pain. The change in the suction ensures flow is begun but then automatically changes down once it's established making it more comfortable to use. The stand is also handy to prevent spillage.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The option of using batteries rather than mains power adds to the convenience when needing to pump while I'm out and not always near a socket. It's quite quiet too so much more discrete. Pumping from just 1 side is also beneficial as I can do this while I feed baby and the sound doesn't distract him. It works very quickly and the adjusting suction made it a successful and less uncomfortable way to express, I was impressed the pump did this automatically.

Would you choose this product to win?

This is easy to use and collects more milk than a manual pump. It is quiet and the change in suction makes it more comfortable to use. I like that it's only a single pump as it can be used whilst feeding and as it is quiet it does not distract baby. The speed that it collects the milk is good and makes it convenient to do whilst feeding. I would choose this product over others as it is reasonably priced for an electric pump and so much more convenient and comfortable to use than a manual pump.

What changes would you make to this product?

The pump arrived in an attractive display packaging but this would not be convenient for transporting to pump away from home, a simple carry case or box to keep the pump and all of the parts clean and ready for use would make it easier. I would be worried about the tuning becoming damaged if I were rouse it outside of the house. Also storage pots that fit into the top of the bottles. The bags are good but pots would cut down on waste of both milk and bags.

Tested by mum Triona Kemp for the Mother & Baby Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I loved this breast pump and would completely recommend to other mothers. I loved the design and it was really easy to use and set up by following the instructions. Transporting wise it is a little clumpy due to the long wire length and weight but with some folding of cables and wires it was easily done. With regards to transporting though being able to use batteries instead for me was a big plus.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I had a hand pump with my first child and I would definitely say that an electric pump is the way forward in future. It saved so much hand ache and actually an enjoyable experience as I had a free hand for a cup of tea when the little ones were napping. I also found that I was able to pump a lot more milk a lot faster with an electric then I have previously done with a manual.

Would you choose this product to win?

I loved that the pump came with storage bags as well as you could literally open the box and go. The product was so easy to use when following the instructions and I loved how easy it was to clean. I also loved how easy it was to put together. With this in mind I have already recommended it to friends who are soon due to have babies. It’s so appealing to the eye and also easily stored away when you have visitors over.

What changes would you make to this product?

I am not sure I could find much I would change about this product. The build and feel is so nice and worked so well for what I needed it for it has been a god send in my house with having 2 so close together. I loved the cable length for the ac power adapter it was the perfect length for every where I took it as well! Thank you for making such a lovely product.

Tested by mum Jodie Howell for the Mother & Baby Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This breast pump out-ranked all other that I have tried. It was easy to use, and came with everything you need to ensure that you can express and store the breast milk safely and conveniently. The pump came with detailed instruction. It was easy to set up, use and clean. This pump made expressing both comfortable and quick. I loved the led display feature that allowed you to see exactly which pump setting you were using. And to make life easier the pump automatically switches from the 'let down' mode to the 'expression' mode after 2 minutes.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This pump is quick to use and quiet (unlike others on the market). It was comfortable and doesn't make you sore following use, allowing you to express on a regular basis. It makes expressing more enjoyable and once expressed, it allows your baby to be fed by others, giving mum a well deserved break.

Would you choose this product to win?

This is the best pump I have used. I have breast fed all three of my children and tried a different pump with each and I have to say this one was the simplest to set up and use (the detailed instructions covered everything you need to know before use and more). It was the only one that I have used that didn't make me sore and visually had the nicest design too. All elements of the pump are high quality and made with comfort in mind. The key pad is simple to use and the pump is quiet when expressing.

What changes would you make to this product?

It would be beneficial to provide a storage box for the pump and all the relevant parts, as once you have sterilised everything you have no where to store them other than to return them to the original box. The pump came with a regular sized breast cushion which is ok for most women, however, you are have to purchase a large breast cushion separately if you have a larger bust size. It would be better if both were provided or if you had an option to buy the pump with either depending upon your needs.

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

The best thing about this pump is the quiet motor when pumping, it’s such a relief when pumping at night not to wake the whole house. I love the purple colour on it, I think it makes it look quite iconic. I found it easy to keep clean and small enough to store away in bedroom. Very easy to use and comfortable so would be great for someone who is pumping for the first time

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

I can pump at night time which saves me time during night feeds as the motor is quiet, so I don't worry that I'm waking people up, which is obviously a bonus and saves me time. I also pump when baby is feeding which saves me time.

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

I would like to see more storage bottles with the kit.

Lansinoh Single Electric Breast Pump.  This breast milk pump came with quite a few parts, but they were easy to put together.  It also came with a long flex which was very handy.  It also can be used with batteries, 6 x AA.  It is very easy to use and has different suction settings.

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

Using a breast pump helps to ease my engorged breasts and there is always milk available for my baby if I have to go out without him.

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

Very good pump.

Lansinoh: Single Electric Breast Pump.  This breast milk pump is easy to set up and use although the instructions are in quite a small font!  The long flex is certainly handy.  With the various settings I was able to find one that suited me best.  Expressing the milk was a lot quicker and less messy than I thought it would be!

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

I'm glad that it also runs on batteries as I've needed to us it when I've been away from home.  So easy to take around and so compact!  My baby is getting the good stuff even when I'm not there!

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

Very good pump!

Tested by mum Emma Young for the Mother & Baby Awards 2016:

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

This pump makes it quick to express milk and it is easy to use. Compared to some other pumps it is not too loud either which is great. I use it every day now and wonder what I would do without it!

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

Quick to clean and easy to use.  Makes life so much simpler knowing that my baby will always be getting my breast milk even when I can't feed her myself!

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

It’s a very good pump!
