LACTE DUET Breastpump Review

This is a super overdue post but I still have to do it just because my life is boring so erego the long silence.hahaha

It's a review of the fifth breastpump - yea I know. Dah boleh bukak kedai.hahahaha

It started a few months ago i think in early May. I was taking my Spectra S1 out of the car for my usual pump routine in school. I had too many things in my hand and I accidentally slipped off  the bag and it dropped on the road. The sound broke my heart because I knew the damage was done. The impact of the fall made Spectra 'pengsan' coz it just wouldnt turn on.

And as an EP mom where my supply depends so much on the pump, I panic..All bad thoughts started coming in so 1 hour after the incident, I already purchased a new one, through online. I think EP Mom out there can relate to this because the pump is our savior. Without it, how our babies gonna get supply? huhu

So in the quick research for the best and cheap pump, I chose LACTE DUET. Double pump, reviews were good and cheap. But there's no built in battery and it depends on electricity. But i think this year the technology of breastpump has evolved so much that most pumps now are compatible to be used with power bank.hahah

So here is my honest review. As usual, cincai one ok. As long as you get the idea.

  • Double pump. Can be used as single without having to pull out one tube. it has two motors that work for each side. Very suitable for heavy user.
  • Suction: SUPERB. READ THIS, JUST SUPERB! It feels like it's not working but after every session, you'll get a bottle full of milk.
  • Small, light weight, convenience
  • Each session: 30 minutes then it will turn off automatically
  • Worth the money as it costs me only RM450
So, in comparison with all the pumps that I have bought and used for sometimes, here I arrange it starting from the best to the least. Please be reminded that this is my personal opinions so please dont bash me if you disagree.

LACTE DUET ---> SPECTRA S1 ----> SPECTRA M1 ---> MEDELA FREESTYLE-->manual pump

After almost a year becoming an EP Mom, trying different kinds of pumps, the amount of milk you are producing doesnt depend on what type of pump you are using. It depends on your body. My SIL is using Medela FS and she could get 10oz after 10minutes of pumping. me? 40 mins with FS I could get around 4oz. hoho and also because my supply isnt that much la.hahaha

Ok, let's enjoy the photos


By the way, I bought this from my favourite only store: PumpOntheGo.
For RM450, it came with the free gifts: ziplock bag, cooler bag and ice packs. Totally worth it.
 


Inside the box. The white cable is the special cable that can be connected to any power bank. =)
 

The pump: Stimulation function, suction level and the button at the bottom is where you can control whether you want to have double pump or single pump. Very convenient if you are a fan of power pumping.


The power bank. Bought from FabulousMom. This power bank can tahan for 5-6 sessions. not bad huh?

As usual, any further question kindly leave a comment or better, shoot me an email so I can personally reply you flyawaycandle@yahoo.com

Tata!

Melody Tan said...

If comparing the mobility and comfort suction for spectra M1 with lacte duet, which one are you recommended?

Melody Tan said...

Lacte duet breast shield got different size?

Melody Tan said...

Refer to lacte duet suction, what do you meant that it is not working ?

nurul razak said...

There's only 1size of breastshield.regarding the suction not working what i meant is i can barely felt it's sucking.the first time i used it i tot it's broken.hehe the suction is not painful but left the breast empty.

I will deliver my 2nd baby soon and exploring for heavy duty (7-8 time a day) double breast pump now. Currently, I'm short listed Lacte duet and M1, need some advice for the 2 brands that mommy Nurul used. M1 best or Lacte best? Compare to their ketahanan motor, suction, service.

Nurul Razak said...

Hi, i wd strongly suggest you to get lacte as M1 is not built for heavy user,unlike lacte

Thank you for your great review. I'm currently using Medela Freestyle but found that it is not able to empty my boobs. Thus I'm looking to buy another pump and undecided between Spectra S1 which is hospital grade VS Lacte Duet. Would you mind to advise which one I should go for in view of the fact that I already have a Medela pump. Thanks in advance!
