    Comments about Pumping Band:

    I was a working/nursing mom nine years ago with my daughter & invested in this pumping band. Best purchased I made. Once adjusted & a little practice it freed my hands up for just about any task,especially when I had my son 5 years later. It allowed me to read & play w/my daughter. I have borrowed & recommeded it to many. Thanks to the mom who designed this. Worth the money.

      Comments about Pumping Band:

      I like that this can be used while still wearing your nursing bra. I'm a bit worried about the impact the velcro will have on the soft material - it catches and pulls the material. overtime, this might create greater wear and tear than hoped for. for a large breasted women, it would be nice if the neck band was longer. might also be nioe to have a band that goes under the breast and kind of lifts them up...

      Comments about Pumping Band:

      This seemed like a really great design - why put on a whole bustier over a nursing bra to pump when you could just put on a strap? Unfortunately, this product failed in execution. The attempts to make it "one size" mean it's a mess of velcro and extra fabric. The "optional" neck strap isn't really optional, as it cannot be removed. Finally, I found the openings for the flanges to be too small for easy insertion/removal, but I do use a larger than average flange.

      a pain!

      By Bean

      from Los Angeles

      Pros

        Cons

        • Poor Construction
        • Poor Design
        • Too fuzzy
        • Velcro sticks everywhere

        Best Uses

          Comments about Pumping Band:

          I hated using this pumping band. It is made of several velcro patches and a stretchy band. Everytime I would go to use it the velcro would have stuck to a different part on the band and yanking it off would make the fibers in the band start to get all fuzzy. Then when you slide the pump through the slits, the fibers would get in the pump and I would have to pick fibers out so they didn't get in the milk. It seems like a simple design but for some reason the velcro is always sticking in the wrong place and the straps are so long since it is one size fits all that they are always in the way. I finally decided it was just easier to hold the pump in place than use this band. I eventually got the Medela one and it is so much easier to use and works just as well.

          Comments about Pumping Band:

          I have found that the best feature with this Bra is the ease of putting it on and taking it off. There are no shoulder straps to contend with. Therefore, all I have to do is lift my shirt up, unclip my nursing bra and secure the pumping band. I am pumping two to four times a day in various locations. It allows me to be completely hands and worry free. I can even pick up my baby while I am pumping. I highly recommend this product to all of the multi-tasking mothers reading this!

            Comments about Pumping Band:

            Not pretty, but works well. I've used it with Medela and Ameda breastpumps. Because Ameda's 'horns' do not detach from the rest of the system, it's a bit of work inserting them into the holes of the band, whereas with Medela, I can just stick the breastshields from the inside first, then attach the rest of the flanges... both possible, just easier with Medela.

            Initially, it took me longer to put this contraption on, and I felt like I was pumping less milk. It took a while but I figured out... I had the band on too tightly, and that restricted milk glands. Now I set it loosely - and stays on fine while pumping. Actually pumps more than not using it.

            I wouldn't say adjustment was easy because it took me a while to get it just right. But I don't see how much better it can get. This has a velcro opening in the back as well as front, so you can set the spacing between the nipples using the front velcro, then set the total length using the back velcro. Once it's set, unless you start loosing weight and get skinnier, and/or your breasts reduce in size (they both happened to me over the course of 7 months of breastfeeding!) you would most likely leave the back velcro alone.

            This band can be worn over a nursing bra, but I do not like wearing nursing bras to work... and I don't have to with this band because I can just switch regular bra with this band while I'm pumping.

              I loved this band. I exclusively pumped and it allowed me to read, wash dishes, check my email etc....I ended up cutting off the top loop (around the neck). I am small chested and didn't need the extra support. I also put large safety pins in the back once I found the proper fit because that is kinda a pain to undo everytime you want to use it, then I only had to open it from the front. I'm not sure why they don't sell this with the pumps?? Wish I would have invented it!

                  I can't say enough good things about this product. It's not pretty, but who cares - I wasn't pumping in front of an audience!

                  And because it's made with velcro, it truly is - one size fits all!

                  Before I discovered the pumping band, I felt like a trapped cow. I couldn't move my hands without interrupting progress - I could only sit there.

                  But lo and behold, I found this great product, and it was a whole new world for me! I was able to type, talk on the phone, use the remote, read a book. FREEDOM! I've sinced purchased one for a friend, and I'm about to purchase one for another friend.

                  When traveling, I once thought I'd left my pumping band behind, and literally panicked!! Fortunately, I found it, but that shows you how dependant I had become. Never leave home without this one, ladies! Highly recommended!!

                    This product is not the best looking thing, but it really works. It works so well because it is adjustable. When you first get it, you have to set it up to fit you. I am smaller and it fits very well, and has so much room to expand if needed. It is comfortable. I am able to put it over most of my nursing bras (opened), and don't have to take my shirt off, just hike it up. I have a medela pump. It holds the parts very firmly in place, I can move all over. You have to put the breastshield in first under the band, then attach the valve. I've never had any spills or leaks, unlike when I pumped without it. They should include one of these in every breast pump kit!

It washes well on delicate cycle and hang to dry.

                        I had a premature baby and therefore pumped exclusively. I pumped for about two months before I had this product. I wish I had had it earlier. This product made so much difference. Instead of sitting with my hands tied up holding the bottles, I could instead talk on the phone, use the computer, even something as simple as change the channel on the TV without having to stop pumping. This product was fantastic! I don't understand why people say it doesn't fit properly.... The size can be adjusted in the back and the front, so it should be able to fit just about everyone. I am on the smaller side and I had no problem getting this to fit properly. I used it with Medela pump parts and it worked well. I used this product 6 times a day for 4 months and feel the quality was just fine. It machine washes well and dries quickly (drip dry). I have no complaints and would recommend this product to everyone!

                          Great idea but poor construction. The velcro is hard to do & its tough to fit properly. I use a medela pump & the shields didnt fit properly through the holes & I couldnt get it tight enough to be able to pump both sides. It was a waste of money. I never even used the "halter" part since it was rough & stiff like the band. I ended up having to hold the pumps while wearing this. Dont let the picture fool you. Not worth the money.

                          This was the BEST purchase I've made!! I absoulety hated pumping, because I got so tired of sitting there holding the bottles as they where being pumped into. When I came across this product, I thought Wow great idea. A scammed across it a few times, because of price. I would then sit and dream about having it. So I finally broke down and bought it. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!! I pump out alot more at one time, cause I can do more than just sit there. It's really a must have, and easy to use, it travels with me in my pump bag. It comes with a neck strap, but as long as you got the cups placed well over the nipples and the front strap good, the neck strap is not necessary to use.
