Hand pump broke after 5 months of use ;(

Was pumping as normal and the piece that pushes the pump inside broke right off!! I'm really disappointed! I never felt like I was ever being rough or force it, and I don't sleep with the pump, so I have no idea how it could just break like that? I had only just started pumping for the day when it broke. I know it's plastic and somewhat delicate but yeesh!

Has anyone had this experience? If so, any way of fixing it? I'm thinking of super glue or a hot glue gun, but I know some types don't work well with some plastic (from experience).

Thanks for any tips/suggestions/help!

After years of pumping, I never found a reliable pump that didn't eventually break. I did find that buying self bleeding kits for car brakes have an identical pump to a lot of these styles of kits, and they even have pressure gauges so you can ensure you don't accidentally over pump. I will say that I did find an electric pump that was not cheap (about $130-ish I think) but it has been absolutely amazing. I don't know if I'm allowed to share links, but they're not too hard to find if you look for vacuum therapy pump. The one I have has a gauge in it and adjustable intensity, so I can ensure I'm getting the same strength of suction every time. No more wearing out my arms! Has definitely been a game changer for me and my pumping routine

That's the same model I bought. It's not quiet, but, it's not terribly loud no. I'm able to use it with it right next to me while I'm watching TV. It sounds kinda like an air compressor but not quite as loud as those tend to be. It also comes with breast cups, but they are not Noogleberry quality nor do they have any airlocks. I just used some cheap tubing I bought at a local hardware store to make a really long version for myself, though I have used the tube it comes with for my airlocks as well.

He's a video with just music over it to show what all it does. I was trying to find one that showed the sound, but found my same model. It comes with all those attachments that I've never used lol

A good electric pump is indeed a game-changer. This one looks ok - interestingly the scale on the gauge is exactly the same range as on the NB hand pump. I use a home made electric one (I'm an electronics enthusiast!) but the one you've illustrated looks pretty good value compared with making your own, and it looks robust enough. Maybe the advantage I have is if the pump motor fails I've only got to pay about 20 dollars for a new pump motor.

so, do the electric pumps really make such a difference?, in what way, eg quicker or better results?

not that I need an excuse for more boob related gadgets

It is indeed a game changer. It is much faster to build up the pressure (not unsafely so though). Kind of hard to describe, but a hand pump tends to be "jerky" in that you only get suction when you squeeze the handle. With electric, you just turn it on and it goes. I've never experienced it, but I would imagine it's quite like the difference between a hand pump operated breast milk pump and an electric.

well, I have the electric breast milk pump, which is sooooo addictive!
the point I was making, or asking, is does electric pumping give better / faster results for boob growth?
having read somewhere recently that if you use the electric bosom beauty or brava system, I cant remember which, you can expect a 20% redaction after stopping use?

In the way that a manual breast milk pump will have the same results as an electric, I don't think you can expect any different results from an electric pump. However, it's that it's so much physically easier to use it, that you may be more apt to use it more frequently. I think the reduction in size is just common across all methods of suction enlargement. Eventually things will go down in size. However, I would say I've gained at least 2 permanent cup sizes over the years.

I agree with Briannam, but I'd add that electric may be more effective because it automatically increases the pressure before it depletes too much - thus increasing average pressure. In the cycle that you have with a hand pump, by the time you replenish the pressure it will have got down to a very low level. (talking negative pressures of course) x A
