Babyology review: does the Philips Avent Comfort Breast Pump pass the mum test?

Not all breast pumps are created equal – some profess ultimate comfort, others supreme speed. We asked three Babyology mums to test the Philips Avent Comfort Single Electric Breast Pump in their own homes and tell us how it worked. 

As the name suggests, the Philips Avent Comfort Breast Pump is all about creating the right, comfortable environment to ensure pain-free, quick flow expressing sessions. Philips Avent boasts it’s the most comfortable breast pump its created, ensuring your back is nice and straight when pumping – no need to lean forward.

It also has a gentle stimulation mode, and three pumping settings so you can choose which best suits the time of day, or your own flow.

We had three fabulous Babyology mums give the Philips Avent Comfort a whirl, testing it in their own homes. Here’s what Lyndall, Larissa and Kylie thought:

Overall, our three testers were pretty chuffed with how the Philips Avent pump worked in their homes – here’s what else they had to say:

How does the Philips Avent compare to other breast pumps you’ve used and what were the best features?

“This was my first experience with an electric pump and I found it easy to use. It was easy to express but more work to set up than my manual pump. I don’t think it was faster than my manual pump but later in the day I think I was able to get more milk than I would from my other one. The bottle is also good with a teat my baby took with no trouble.” – Larissa

“[My other breast pump] has a much stronger suction, so the commencement of milk flow/let down is faster. Despite this, the suction cups on the Avent pump stimulate the breast and I feel I end up getting more milk from the Avent than [my other breast pump]. I liked that the tube was totally separate so there was never a chance that you would get fluid in it. I like that it feels more compact than [my other breast pump]. The suction on the outer ring was excellent as it stimulated the ducts and so resulted in more milk expressed.” – Lyndall

“The Avent pump feels more luxurious to use. [I liked] the fact that you can use batteries, that you don’t have you lean all the way forward.  – Kylie

The Philips Avent Comfort Single Electric Breast Pump retails for $249.95, and is available from leading retailers nationally.
