Very quiet and easy to use
This has been a very comfortable pump to use. Roughly used for 5-10 mins each side to relieve discomfort or make a small bottle if I was going out.
Very easy to clean, I put all parts into the steriliser.
Would definitely use this product again, I'm keeping it around for baby #2.
Perfect for breastfeeding mum
This is the perfect double side Brest feeding pump, it has 2 different functions which are massage mode and pump mode from low speed to very high speed suits every Brest feeding mums. I have used it everyday 8 times a day for one year! I bring it with me doesn’t matter where I was. Ex. Home,office,train,airplanes, overseas
Great little Pump
Small, compact pump that is still powerful. Battery doesn't last too long if using on higher settings. All the parts are easy to clean and put together. Makes a bit of noise, but much more quiet than other pumps. The spectra bottles aren't great. The measurements on them wash off very quickly so you don't know how much you actually have. Website is user friendly and affordable. Customer service is fantastic.
Amazingly small and quiet
Apart from a few times in hospital this is my only experience with breast pumps. I was attracted to this one because of the reputation of the brand, that it's a closed system and its portability. I only pump as necessary during the day for the following day at daycare. It's tiny! I can easily carry this with my lunch and a bottle in a chiller bag on public transport. It fits into a small chiller bag to discretely stow in the fridge at work. It's very light, about 1/4 the weight of the other Spectra pumps, but is not less powerful.
Powerful and truly serves its purpose
I have two pumps that two of my friends lent me. I've tried the other brand first as advised by the midwife when I started my breastfeeding/pumping journey. I then tried Spectra 9 and can tell there's a huge difference! This pump is heaps more powerful and its portability feature is a plus. I strongly recommend this product and would use this for as long as I need to pump.

Love the portability
Bought this pump for when I am at work. I had already bought the Spectra S2 and had this idyllic vision of me being able to set that up in a dedicated room with a power point when I went back to work. I thankfully realised that this would be so far from reality before I went back and thought I better invest in a portable pump.
I bought this pump after very patiently waiting for a sale because these pumps are not cheap. I am very happy with the spectra 9 however - I letdown just the same as I do with the S2 at home.
The portability wins i...t for me, its so compact - the flanges take up more room than the pump. With an insulated double lunch compartment bag that I scored at Kmart, I have a pumping bag ready to go all the time. It is comfortable and easy to use. I dont really like the bottles that come with the pump or the fact that the flanges dont dismantle but the awesome customer service at Spectra gave me some credit for the bottles that I had issues with. How great is that!? I still give the pump 5 stars because it has made my transition back to work while choosing to still breastfeed much smoother and the customer service cannot be beat.

Very happy. Works well.
I would definately recommend this. It's very comfortable and easy to use. I ordered massage sheilds but really don't need them. I always get letdown on the massage setting after a few minutes and only need to express for 10. Have tried both double and single pumping and it is very effective either way. Parts are easy to clean in warm soapy water after use and leave to air dry.
Great product, portable too!
Love this breast pump. Easy to clean, closed system, portable, rechargeable. Win win! I definitely recommend getting a hands-free pumping bra with this though. The bottles it comes with are also somewhat small, so you may wish to get larger ones for storage purposes. Overall, very happy with this product.

Handy to have
I only need to use this occasionally, and it is great to have on hand. It is compact, not too noisy and the screen lights up to use in the dark, without being overly bright. It is simple to clean, and the closed system means I don't need to be worried about milk going into places I can't clean. I found the different settings and massage function good. I have never used any other electric breast pump (although I do have a manual one which was a bit of a pain to use), so I don't have much to compare it to. However, I am very pleased with this pum...p, and it's an item I would definitely recommend to anyone seeking an electric breast pump that is portable and fuss-free. The company often has 20% off sales too, so keep an eye out if you're in the market for one.

Light and easy
Bought it before bub arrive. Perfect for my need as I am only pumping every now and then. It's light and easy to transport, i could pump in the car while on the road and feed bub straight after pumping. The rechargeable battery lasted long. Haven't try any other brand, but I am pleased with my purchase and we've got 20% from their website when they have a deal.
Portable and strong pump
Excellent pump highly recommend this! I bought it as I had twins and it hasn't missed a beat. Perfect as I can move about while pumping and do house chores or attend to the twins. Great for increasing breast milk supply and I recommend using it in the early days to bring on milk production.
Excellent and highly recommend!
Compact and effective
The rechargeable battery and compact size make this pump so handy, as can pump anywhere without needing a power point. Good massage and suction settings, lots to choose from for personal level of comfort. I use it once a day mainly for single pumping. Love that its a closed system - very hygienic as the milk never comes in contact with the motor unit, super easy to clean.
light and easy to transport
Great powerful pump that is light in weight and portable for movement around the house. I have used my pump a lot and while electric pumps are not cheap in general, I highly recommend this pump as it will save you time and sore hands from a manual pump ( I have used both).
Great portable double pump
It is a great little machine for double pumping, I was exclusively pumping for 3 months at home and even in the car! Battery lasts long enough for whole day use, and is easy to clean. There was no milk backflow into tubes (old Medela from hospital did) and it functions as it should. My only problem is it didn't increase my milk supply like I hoped it would, despite me taking Domperidone and lactation cookies. I did read that it's not as strong as the hospital grade, but I chose this because of its portability, I think for next bub I will try the hospital grade one instead of this one.
I love this pump. Good value for money, it's really easy to use, I love the digital display telling you what pumping level you are at and how long you have been pumping for. It holds a charge well, is quiet and small & light, great for travel. I didn't really like the bottles that it came with (a bit small and the teat sometimes leaked), so I just bought Avent bottles which fit the breast shield perfectly.
Great portable pump
I have been using the S9 Plus for about 6 months now. I typically use it for 10min (double pump so saves time!) once or twice a day when I'm at work. I work 3 days / week and usually only need to charge it every few weeks. I love not having to sit close to a power point to pump.
I agree with a previous review - the bottles/lids that come with the pump leak and so I need to use alternative bottles to store/carry milk. Though usually I would need to empty the bottles between pumping sessions as they would overfill anyhow.
The pump is super easy to use and customer service is fantastic - I got over the phone advice when I had an issue and got it working again with in minutes. Delivery was also super fast. Super happy with this pump.
Questions & Answers
Good morning, I have been using the Spectra S9 for almost a year now. It has worked perfectly. Yesterday when I went to turn it on, it would not work. I thought it must be dead, so I plugged it in and it worked. When I was finished pumping, I kept it plugged in so it would be fully charged the next time. The next time I tried to use it with a full charge, it would not turn on unless I had it plugged in. It still works perfectly if plugged in but this is not possible all the time for me. I need to pump without it plugged in. Any suggestions or thoughts on what could be going on?? Thank you!
I've had my spectra 9 plus for 9mths now. when I pumping and I try to go past suction 4 it all feel the same and it really not pulling the milk out the breast. Any help?

Hey Ashley, sounds like your shield kit parts are due replacement.
We recommend replacing them regularly to avoid suction loss which can affect your pumping needs, or impact on your output.
If you send us a message to [email protected], we can let you know which parts need replacement and how often, depending on your use. :)
I’ve had my Spectra 9 Plus for just under two months and as of about 2 weeks ago, while pumping, it will stop having suction, however it still sounds like it’s trying to suck. I’ve checked all my parts and reassembled the kit and it is still an issue. When it stops having suction, the back flow protectors don’t move either. What can I do to fix it?
Customer Service T.Spectra
Hi Miranda, not sure if you have replaced your shield kit parts at all?
You should probably check in with us by sending a message to us at [email protected] so we can see a video of what is happening, and understand more about the care and use of the pump and parts so we can help you get this sorted out. :)
