I started out with a TomeeTippee electric pump. After one use of this manual breastpump I've not touched the electric one since! It's more convenient, there's a better drawdown of milk too.
Manual Breast Pump
Lansinoh® Manual Pump is an excellent option for Mothers who are going to be pumping occasionally. The unique, two-phase system allows Mum to switch easily from the stimulation phase to expression phase- a key tool which was until recently only attributed to electric pumps, and which will potentially enable greater volumes to be expressed in a shorter time (Meier et al 2012). Cochrane (2015) suggests that hand expression or manual pumps may be as effective as electric pumps in terms of volumes expressed in some circumstances. There is also evidence that gentler expression (hand or manual pump) may be preferable in the very earliest days because of the altered nutritional content of the milk when larger volumes are expressed. (Becker et al 2015)
What the manual pump offers is ease and simplicity with less financial outlay, with an ergonomic, easy-express handle which reduces hand fatigue. It is ideal for short-term or occasional use, but also for some mothers who may find the manual control less intimidating than the electric.Additional Information
I've been using this pump for occasional pumping to increase supply and it's great. It's quick and easy to assemble, the instructions are simple to understand. Suction isn't painful, and yields a good amount. Pumping can be quite tedious and give you arm ache, but I like that it's portable and quiet, and can be carried as is, once sterilised.

Lansinoh’s Manual Breast Pump provides a portable and convenient option for breastfeeding women who want to express discreetly and in comfort while on the move, as it does not require batteries or an electrical source.
Designed for ease of use, a simple switch at the top of the handle enables you to switch between the ‘let down’ and ‘expression’ phases of breastfeeding. The ‘let down’ phase mimics your baby’s natural sucking style at the start of the feeding process. The ‘expression’ phase replicates the longer, slower draws your baby makes during breastfeeding.
The ergonomic handle means the Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump can be used with one hand without placing any strain on your wrist. It also features a unique ComfortSeal cushion that creates a secure seal which makes pumping not only more efficient, but also more comfortable.
A unique stand is included which keeps the pump bottle stable during and after you have expressed. Lansinoh’s wide neck bottle also comes with the Manual Breast Pump, which is compatible with the different pumps, lids and teats within Lansinoh’s product range.

Is the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump dishwasher safe?
All of the parts in the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump are dishwasher safe. To prevent loss and extend their usefulness, we recommend hand washing the white valve, silicone diaphragm stem and the ComfortFit™ breast cushions.
Can I sterilise the manual breast pump parts in boiling water?
You can sterilise the manual breast pump by boiling the parts in water for ten minutes. Please make sure you have a large enough pot and enough water so all parts float freely and do not come in contact with the pot.
Is the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump BPA-free and BPS-free?
Yes, the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump is both BPA and BPS free. The bottles are made of polypropylene plastic which is also chemical-free and additive-free.
What is BPA and BPS and why should I choose breastfeeding products which do not contain these?
BPA or bisphenol-A is a chemical used primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics and acts as an estrogen imposter, being widely known as a hormone disrupter. Studies have linked BPA to cancer, depression, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and a number of other ailments. BPA can be especially dangerous in pregnancy, infancy and childhood – so much so that many governments around the world have banned BPA in the production of baby bottles and other products.
BPS or bisphenol S is an alternative to BPA used by some manufacturers as a plasticiser to replace BPA. BPS is also a hormone disrupter and is considered to be equally unsafe, however this is currently allowed for the production of baby bottles and similar products.
Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh we have taken proactive measures to ensure the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump is both BPA and BPS FREE.
What is the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump made of?
The Manual Breast Pump parts are made of Polypropylene, Silicone, Polyethylene and SEPS.
Can I pump from the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump directly into Lansinoh® Breastmilk Storage Bags?
Because the Lansinoh® Breastmilk Storage Bags have a double zipper closure, they will not fit directly on either the Manual or Electric breast pumps. You can however express directly into the bottle and then either transfer the breastmilk into a Breastmilk storage bag or use the sealing disc provided with the Manual Breast Pump to seal the container for storing.
I need a larger size breast cushion - is there one available for the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump?

What is the suction strength of the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump?
