PROS

  • Takes lesser time to express milk from your breasts
  • As I expressed often , it helped me to keep up and increase my BM production
  • The bag can be taken as our handbag too as it’s quite good in terms of quality and appearance. Mine was a black bag as shown in the pic
  • Quite user-friendly , can be used with one hand
  • Since it is a mini electric one , it can be used with main supply or with batteries . So even if electricity is gone, you can use it with batteries . If batteries are not available, plug it in with the adapter to the main supply , quite comfortable isn’t ?
  • Light in weight and compact hence travel friendly
  • The medela bottles are sturdy , leak proof and sterilisable
  • The milk storage bags provided with it are quite useful for storage purposes
  • The icepack provided with it can keep the stored milk fresh for about 8 hours
  • The motor is not loud , though I can relate the sound to that of a hair dryer.
  • Easy in expressing and storing milk
  • Can be used about 3 times a day
  • You can choose the most comfortable vacuum level quickly by switching one controller
  • As the pump only comprises four parts, assembly and cleaning only take a few minutes.
  • Bottles are BPA free
  • Available in Amazon, babyoye , flipkart and many other online sites.

CONS

  • Expensive

MY EXPERIENCE : I started using it when Anshika was 3 and a half months old. And the breastpump is still in good shape. I had an easy and comfortable time expressing and storing milk with medela mini electric breast pump . Even if electricity wasn’t available I used it with batteries .  I used it thrice a day ; in the morning , post lunch and at night. The stored milk was kept in the icepack and transferred to the freezer when I reached home. At the daycare I asked the caretaker to store it in the refrigerator and warm it up as and when Anshika felt hungry.

Even though it was expensive , I felt it is economical when quality , durability , usage and my baby’s health is taken into consideration . 1 year passed by , still I use the medela bottles without any leakage . The best thing about this product is the stylish bag , I can vouch on this , no one would ever guess that you have a breastpump handy in that bag :P. Anshika was just on BM till 6 months , All thanks to Medela Mini Electric Breast Pump Starter Kit :):)

WOULD I RECOMMEND MEDELA MINI ELECTRIC BREASTPUMP ? Yes for sure. If you a working mom , then medela mini electric breast pump starter pack is just for you 🙂

MY RATING  : 5/5

  1. Hi Sangeetha, The product that you have described is the starter pack but the link to amazon shows only mini electric pump, which I presume does not have the bags and other additional bottles. Is it the same? can you please clarify?
    Thanks, Dr. Banu

  5. Hi, product description says its for occasional use. I planning to use daily for 2-3 times. Will you reco this or medela swing? My budget is 8-10 k. I can get mini electric brand new or swing second hand wid new bottles. N is it safe to use second hand pump?

    • Hi Geetika ,

      Yeah Medela mini electric can be used 2 times a day as per my personal exp. Medela swing\’s motor is powerful, produces less noise and pumps faster than the mini electric … Second hand pumps are safe to use if its its sterilised and sanitised properly. try with new breast shield and bottles if you can. If you plan to pump frequently a day , then go for swing ones…
