"This has all the features I needed. It is comfortable and easy to use and get used to. It's battery pack for pumping on the go is great too! Easy to clean and disassemble/reassemble. I definitely recommend it."

"I highly recommend the Isis iQ Duo to any mother that plans to return to work. It’s worth every penny! What I like the most about this pump is that I control it. Everybody that I knew said that they were always able to get more milk with a manual pump, but I knew that I wouldn’t have that kind of time to pump at work. I chose this pump because it lets you pump manually then you press a button and it mimics your manual pumping.
The storage coolers are great for bringing milk home from work, but I also like to use them to carry milk in the diaper bag whenever I take my daughter with me to run errands or visit friends."
Jenny W. - Ann Arbor, MI
"With this pump I am able to get enough milk for two of my daughter’s feedings in 10 minutes. I think that the massage cushions really help to make this pump comfortable. The bag makes it really easy to bring my Isis Duo to work everyday. My only complaint is that the motor is a bit top heavy, but I would still recommend this pump to anyone especially working moms."

"When I first decided to breastfeed I bought a Medela Pump in Style because I had heard so many good things about them, but after using it for about 4 weeks my milk supply started getting lower and lower. I got really upset because I couldn’t pump enough for my son’s daily feedings, but luckily I had extra milk stored in my freezer. A friend of mine told me that Avent had a new pump so I decided to try the Duo. It was so comfortable to use because it didn’t pull or tug on my breasts, and within two weeks I was able to build my supply back up"

"I've been using this pump for about 6 weeks. I chose it over the Medela because I like the Avent bottles and wanted to stick to one product and be able to pump directly into the bottles I'd be using. I think it works great - when I had my daughter 4 years ago I tried the Avent manual pump and liked the design, but found the manaul pumping a little tedious. This has the same design, but does the pumping for you. I have found the motor strong using both electricity and the battery pack. The only drawback is that the motor is attached to suction cup, so you're holding both while pumping and it gets a bit heavy - but I'm fine with it and like the overall simplicty of the design better than the Medela."

"I had used the Avent Isis manual pump when my first daughter was born, but this time around I found this electric version. I find that it pumps just like the manual one, but without all the extra work on my part. With this pump I’ve been able to express at least 4 oz. of milk from each breast and in less time than when I used my manual. I’m a stay at home mom, and I only pump to keep an emergency supply. I would recommend this pump to other mothers, but it may be time consuming if you have to pump for all your baby’s feedings."
Kim Degeyter - Baton Rouge, LA
"I bought the Isis IQ UNO so that I could pump once a day to give my husband a chance to feed our son and help out with late night feedings and it works great. I am able to empty my breasts each time I pump. When I was at the hospital I used one of the rental pumps, and to me the UNO’s suction is equal to the minimum setting on the hospital’s pump. I think that this pump would work well for moms who do not need very strong suction to express milk.
I like the fact that pump learns your pumping pattern, but it is not always exact and is slightly slower than the pattern you initially used. I would definitely recommend this pump to moms who like the Avent Isis manual pump and are occasional pumpers. If you are a frequent pumper, I would suggest the double version."

"This product is wonderful!! I breastfed my first child exclusively, using the avent isis handpump for probably 10 bottles total his whole life. Things are different with my daughter. I don't have the chance to catch up on sleep when she sleeps b/c I'm caring for my son during the day. I wanted my husband to be able to help out during nighttime feedings on the weekends. I also wanted to be able to have an evening out. I decided to get an electric pump after renting was too expensive... and those pumps are painful. I researched and finally settled on this pump. It took me 5 minutes to read the instructions .. 2 minutes to set it up , 30 seconds to figure out how to change the suction, and 1 minute to get results... milk. I can't say how much I love this pump."
Sara Shields - Little Rock, AR
"This is a great little pump. It is affordable, which is one of the features that makes it is great (having a baby, especially the 1st one, is expensive enough). You can use the Avent bottles and magic cups interchangably for milk storage, so there are fewer things you have to wash. This is awesome because there isn't much time for working around the house with a new baby. This pump also stores quite well in the Avent microwave steam sterilizer. After sterilizing it, I just leave it in the sterilizer. I know it's out of the way and I also know where all of the parts are."
Jennifer Mayo - Birmingham, AL
"This pump works better for me then the one from the hospital! It's very easy to use and clean and I love that it attatches to the bottles so I can give it right to my baby or throw it in fridge for later. It pumps pretty quickly and is easy to travel with."
Wilda Sutton - Corpus Christie, TX
"I got this pump because I wasn't returning to work. I thought I wouldn't mind the manual pump because I wouldn't need to pump often since I wouldn't be away from my baby very often. I found that I STRONGLY dislike this pump. It is poor quality and breaks often and it simply doesn't pump much out. The rubber seal on the mouth of the pump has to be removed because it is often the reason you can't get a seal. I would NOT recommend this pump. It's a huge waste of money..."
Abby Belaire - Richmond, VA
"Easy to use. Lightweight. Fast clean up. I chose this pump because it had everything I was looking for in a pump. Using the Isis is very convenient for me because I can pump right into the Avent bottle that my son will eat from. There’s no need to pour the milk into anything else after pumping, which makes things so easy for me when I’m in a hurry."
Linda Evans - Yakima, WA
"When I was exploring the world of breast pumps by reading every review I could find and talking to anyone who has pumped within the last 3 years I came to the conclusion that the Isis On-The-Go Set was the one for me. I am an active person who likes to camp, hike and mountain bike so I am not always in a position to find an electric outlet. I am also someone who will not use an item that is uncomfortable or inconvenient. The On-The-Go Set comes with everything you need to pump away from home. I also find the pump to be painless and easy to use. For me this was a wise purchase."
A. Shelton - Naples, FL
"I bought this set thinking it was a bit more than I needed, but I actually used everything in the set. I think it's great for pumping once or twice a week, but not daily. The pump is very lightweight, silent, and very effective as manual pumps go. I gave it only 4 stars because the pump also seemed very fragile. After only a month of light use, I had to utilize all the replacement parts included in the set. All in all, if you need a pump for going back to work, consider a double-sided electric pump for quick and hard use. But if you only need to pump occasionally, are going on a trip, or just need a manual backup, I recommend the Avent Isis!"
J. Baker - Cornelius, NC
"This pump was a lifesaver for me. My husbandand I were planning to take a day trip so we could spend some alone time together, but I had been breastfeeding exclusively since our little girl was born. Since I’m a SAHM, and I wasn’t going to be pumping on a regular basis I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a pump. The Avent Isis pump with the on the go bag was just what I needed because it came with a pump, an insulated bag, extra bottles and cooler packs. The pump was comfortable and easy to use. It was also very easy to clean. This is a great pumping option if you don’t need to pump very often. Since I’ve gotten I have used it several more times when I needed to leave my daughter with a babysitter and I have been satisfied with it every time."
