What we did was we bought this manual breast pump when I was still pregnant. As of writing, my baby is only 4 weeks old, not even 1 month. I can say that this pump works. We bought the First Years Manual Breast Pump and it worked until it broke.
Yep. Not being a month of being used and it is already broken. One of the silicone part inside was torn, making the pump unusable. It is sad as we bought this for almost a thousand pesos. We no longer have the receipt so we can’t even return it for replacement. We never really counted on it being that quick to break.
