Review:

As far as reviews go, the AVENT Double Electric Breast Pump did pretty well. With 41 out of 55 reviewers rating it 4 to 5 stars, with 5 being the max, that means about 75% were extremely happy with their purchase. As for the other 25%, reviews were mixed. The number one complaint being that there are so many pieces to assemble, clean, and reassemble. It seems to take up a lot of time. Other reviewers stated that it seems like a lot at first, but then you get used to it, and get faster. Another common complaint was that because there are so many parts, the milk tends to get trapped in places, and if it’s not sealed properly it will leak from the bottle when pumping. Aside from those complaints, most of the reviewers loved the AVENT Double Electric Breast Pump. Also, this pump is basically a newer model of the AVENT ISIS iQ Duo which was given the highest rating (a grade: A) by Baby Bargains. Most of the reviewers loved the customizable controls, as well as the efficiency, stating that it worked just as well, if not better, than the professional grade hospital double breast pumps. Plus, its nearly half the price. Most also stated that is was extremely comfortable, and easy to use, once you get the hang of assembly.

I personally love the fact that you have so much control. The above demonstration video pertains to the AVENT ISIS iQ Duo, but both breast pumps work the same, so you have to watch the video to truly understand how it works. Also, check out the customer feedback below.

The Good

  • Affordable – it’s half the price of other high quality double breast pumps.
  • Newer model of Avent ISIS iQ Duo, which was given the highest grade A rating by Baby Bargains.
  • Its a double breast pump, which means more milk, less pumping, and it also comes with 2 5-petal cushion massage breast shields for comfort.
  • Extremely customizable – you control it all, speed, vacuum, rhythm – controls are at your fingertips
  • Electronic memory stores your favorite settings
  • One-touch memory control – recalls your stored settings
  • 100% BPA free

The Bad

  • Soooo many pieces, it seems to take forever to disassemble, clean, and reassemble.
  • Because of all the parts, milk tends to get trapped in little places
  • In it’s not sealed properly, it will leak from the bottle when pumping, or if it falls over.


Customer Feedback:

great pump, March 13, 2011

By Emma,

I hope this will help breast pump shoppers because let me tell you what, I did a lot of research and was extremely undecided until I came across the AVENT Breast Pump Double. I found a video on Youtube. It works great and the price is decent for what all you get. So here we go:

– The speed is controllable right at your finger tip, great option.
– It is comfortable with the use of the breast shells.
– Parts to clean- breast shells, diaphragms, valves, horns, seems like a lot but I think that’s pretty standard and it’s not that bad.
– Love the long cord I can move around the room with the pump if I need to.
– Replacement parts easy to find on Amazon at a great price.

Cons- comments to other comments I’ve seen:

When you buy the AVENT bottles, don’t buy the clear ones with the seal ring, they suck and leak. Get the good hard plastic ones like the ones that come with the AVENT Double Breast Pump. You will know because they have a honey colored tint to them. They cost a little more but so worth it, no leaking and easier to clean. If you don’t want to use their bottles get the adapter to fit others, found on Amazon.
The AVENT nipples are great for breast to bottle transition for the baby plus when you are done with the 4 oz bottles and level 1,2 nipples, get the storage sealing disc and use them to store baby food!!!!

Tipping: You have to use the discs to keep them propped up if you are setting them down. If they still fall it’s because of pulling on the cords or bumping them. If you use containers bigger than 4 oz. they won’t fit in the discs, but they will sit on their own you just have to be careful.

Really good pump!, February 20, 2011

By B. Cano (Santa Monica, CA)

I got the AVENT Double Electric Breast Pump a few weeks before returning back to work. My best friend had her baby a month after me and she was able to get a Medela Lactina hospital grade pump for herself, unfortunately she was not able to breastfeed. She let me borrow her breast pump and I started pumping exclusively with the Lactina. I didn’t want to take her pump to work (it’s a rental, expensive to replace, and not easily carried) so I was in the market for a good work breast pump. I decided I would use the Lactina at home and buy another breast pump for myself. I naturally looked at the Medela Pump in Style, but the cost was pretty high, and I don’t care what bag it comes in or what it looks like as long as there is a bag to transport the equipment. I read lots of reviews and based on my needs, and affordability I chose the Avent Double Electric Breast Pump. This decision was not made lightly, in large part because I know this cannot be returned like you would a piece of clothing that does not fit. My decision in large part was based on Amazon reviews and other peoples experience with Philips customer service. Fortunately I have not had any negative issues with this double breast pump and am extremely pleased with the level of suction and ability to empty out my milk while at work. My pumping routine is pretty much using the Lactina in the morning before I go to work, then twice a day at work I use the Avent pump, then I get home and pump on the Lactina. The Avent Breast Pump helps me produce 5 oz. bottles in one sitting, it’s not loud, and best of all, it has similar results to the Lactina. I have had this Avent Breast Pump for over a month now and am so happy this worked out. If you want a breast pump with good suction similar to a hospital grade pump look no further. I love reading reviews but am guilty of not writing them, especially when I really like to base my purchases on them, so here is my small contribution because this really is a good breast pump!
