If you haven’t heard of Spectra, that’s okay! They used to only be available overseas but now, they are here and thank HEAVENS for that. If you are a breastfeeding mama, wanting to build a milk-stash or if you pumping and feeding – keep reading.

I had a breast pump, but for some reason it just wasn’t working as efficiently as it should. It was a single pump breast pump as well, so it took work pumping out both breasts – a LOT of work. And time. And we all know as new moms, we have very little of that. Introducing the Spectra S1 “heavens-opening-sunbeams-shining-music-playing-ahhh”. Game changer.


You see, it’s no ordinary breast pump. It is a hard working hospital grade breast pump that meets every expectation you might have. Double pump, so both breasts can be pumped out in 10 minutes, i promise you! Honestly my favorite part about it is that it charges instead of being plugged in or using expensive batteries. You charge it and it can be used for 3 hours. 3 hours! That’s a lot of milk, man. It also indicates as the battery drains so you won’t be caught off guard when it dies. Happened way too often with my old breast pump I had before the Spectra S1.

It has a nightlight, lightweight, portable and it’s so quiet, perfect for a night time express-session. It even times your sessions, but I’m still not at the best part of this oh-so-awesome breast pump. Even cooler? The cycle settings. Completely Adjustable Suction and Cycling in let-down and expression mode. Each mother can customize her pump’s settings to her own body’s response and follow her flow to find her own best settings every time – urgh, guys, this machine is way too cool. Never in my life have I been this excited about something that used to be such a annoyance to me.

Ok now I am at the best part of this entire post. Ready for it? Are you even ready for it? It only costs R2999 ! A double pump breastpump with all those wonderful features for a ridiculous price of R2999. I would pay double that for this beast of a machine. Will you be getting one? #LetsOpenADairyFarm #Mooo

PS : The milk pumped out in the photos were AFTER a feed – how cool is that??

  1. So happy to hear this one is a winner!
    I had the previous model and I was less than impressed… too noisy and too heavy to take anywhere. It packed up completely after a month of daily use (I pump exclusively).
    Also, that one didn’t have the adjustable pump modes.. it truely makes all the difference, especially if you want to up your supply!
    Very keen to get my hands on this one. Thanks for the review Chenel.

  2. Wow! I have just returned my Tommee Tippee Electric Breast pump because it was completely useless, I have way more success with the manual one (also a Tommee Tippee)… I would love to get my hands on ones of these because after retuning to work my supply is definitely not as good as it was when I was at home…

  3. I had the Spectra M1 after using another well known brand and the Spectra absolutely rocked the other brand out of the water. The hospital grade pump looks amazing!
