Anyone use the manual Avent pump?

I bought one of these today and when I pump sometimes the milk stays in the top and doesnt drop to the bottle. Anyone have any experience with this? I love the pump but am very frustrated with this!

  • I used that pump with my first daughter. I had the same problem which was frustrating!! I agree. I used to have to pull it back away from my breast and wait for the milk to go down where it was supposed to.

  • you may have to pump bending over, open up the hole a little bigger. question is it the purple pump with the rippled cup?

  • Yes and that pump sucks! Ugh. I gave it to my daughter for a toy and got a Medela manual pump from Target. It was 100% better!
