I would NOT recommend the Avent Manual Pump to anyone unless you want to waste your money and time on buying it. I find that this pump was VERY difficult to use and even with a breast full of milk this pump would barely pump any of my milk. What little milk it did pump I had to manipulate the breast pump and do more than I probably should have had to do just to get anything to come out. And that was with following the directions that came with the pump. I know in some cases being cheap works out well, but in this case being cheap gives you exactly what you pay for, which is a piece of JUNK! I ended up giving up on breast feeding and throwing my Avent manual pump away after several failed attempts although I wish I had kept on trying to breastfeed my daughter anyway. I would most definitely recommend that any mother who would like to breastfeed should spend the money on a better quality breast pump, whether it is manual or electronic. Also, do your research and read reviews before buying and don't do like I did and buy a pump based off of just the price.
