The Simplygo is a great option for moms who want to supplement breastfeeding, it is a small and light device that you can take anywhere to pump when you need it. It is made of completely BPA-free material.
The main feature of this manual pump is the MemoryFlex band in the pumping system, which basically lets you have a consistent flow of milk without pulling or tugging. It actually feels very comfortable once you find that sweet spot. It is not meant to be used rapidly (something that in the end will just tire your hands), it is better to go slow and steady to avoid pain; the key here is to develop a rhythm. The handle has an ergonomic design, so you can use it easily even with just one hand.
The SimplyGo Manual has a just a few pieces, something that helps you save time at the time of cleaning and sterilizing them. There’s no chance of mold growth in this pump and it contains a valve that acts as a backflow protection system that keeps milk from traveling back to the flanges.
The flanges are comfortable too and they accommodate nicely to the form of your breasts. It has a good size that can be useful for moms with large breasts. In any case you can ask for a bigger size of flanges when you make your order. The standard flange size is 28.5mm but with the aid of the included silicone insert, you can reduce it to 24.5mm.
The Evenflo SimplyGo is a good manual breast pump for the price. Surprisingly, it is very effective expressing milk, and you don’t have to work fast to get it. Still I find the mechanism to be harder to squeeze than other brands so if you use it for too much time your hands will not feel good at all. If you want an emergency pump for special occasions, this can be a good choice.
Over all, I’d say it was worth the $20 I spent & yes, I’d recommend it for anybody who hasn’t done this sort of thing. Now that I’m used to it & wanting to pump even more often, I’m looking into an electric pump for at home, & I’ll keep this for travelling or emergencies, etc.
I purchased this pump while away in another state. I am more than glad I did. It is manual which wasn’t something I was used to since the one I have at home is the AVENT electric twin pump (which btw its great too) but it was VERY easy to get used to. It’s simple to put together and simple to take apart. I read some reviews where it said that mold grew in parts that couldn’t be taken apart and honestly I have no clue what they are talking about.
