Our Analysis

The Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump is compact enough to be carried discreetly. With this small (dimensions are 7.48" length x 3.54' width x 7.48' height) and efficient one-hand pump with ergonomic handle and ComfortSeal cushion, nursing moms can pump breastmilk quickly and easily. It's BPA-free, simple to clean, and has an adjustable lever to control suction pressure. And it's surprisingly gentle on mom's hands and breasts.

We especially like this affordable, self-sustaining pump as a great on-the-go compliment to an electric double breast pump that may work better for everyday use at home or work. Lansinoh is also a bestseller of breastmilk storage bags designed to freeze or save breastmilk for later use.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
  • Cleans easily
  • Adjustable suction lever
  • Comfortable on hands and breasts
  • Efficient
  • Very portable
  • Quiet


User reviews frequently note these disadvantages:
  • Should be cleaned after each use to avoid build-up
  • Must reassemble tightly and just right for suction to work
