Spectra Handy Plus Manual Breast Pump

As you may know I just had my son and was not willing to spend thousands of rands for a breast pump because I am done having children. I searched for affordable breast pumps and settled on the Spectra Handy Plus Manual Breast Pump I bought from Takealot.


The Spectra – Handy Plus Manual Breast Pump is a small and very portable manual breast pump which makes expressing a breeze. It is easy to clean and assemble. All parts can be washed and sterilized.

It’s suction strength of 350mmHg is comparable to that of hospital-grade pumps and ensures effective nipple stimulation and removal of milk.

Comes with a removable silicone massager is included for extra comfort. Your Spectra Handy Plus can easily be transported. All parts are BPA free and the product has a 6 month warranty.

Love that the pump comes already assembled in the box, that was a relief for me because hate putting things together. The box is small and portable.

Tried using the pump ,on my first try could not express any milk and got worried that I just wasted my money.

Few days later I removed the silicone diaphragm that comes with it and voila, was able to pump milk and filled the whole bottle of 150ml in one go.

Found it easy to use when my son is sleeping because it does not make noise and it is very gentle on my breast.

Spectra Handy Plus Manual Breast Pump works for me and fits into my lifestyle because I want my son to get used to drinking from the bottle for when I go back to work and gets on formula in January.

Also expresding to build up my milk stash for when I go out for errands it is convenient.

Well it is a manual pump , you have got to be patient to make it work otherwise get yourself an electrical breast pump. Fits very well into my lifestyle and also use it to ease breast engorgement when the baby is sleeping and not feeding.

The price is R259.00 at Takealot.
