My On-The-Go Breast Pump | GoMini Electric Breast Pump by Pigeon

Presenting the GoMini Breast Pump by Pigeon, the stylist breast pump for any modern mom
Despite being a stay at home mom, I would say that I have a pretty busy schedule to keep up with in addition to caring for the baby. From attending events to doing grocery, running errands and even just having a break with friends to maintain my lifestyle. As a modern millennial mom, I try to not let my baby slow me down from doing the things that I love to do. And one of the greatest breasts pumps that im utterly thankful exist right now is the GoMini Electric Breast Pump by Pigeon.

Here's what it looks like.
Close up details, and yes this pump double pumps on the go!
I know what youre thinking, a breast pump has only one function, which is to express milk from the breast. But this is where I'll change your perception! Most breast pumps in the market focus a lot on the suction power and usually are pretty heavy to bring around making it tedious to pump when you need to (especially for mom's who pump at work). When I discovered the GoMini Electric Breast Pump, I was surprised to find that it functions as a double pump AND its as light as an iPhone 8 or in more specific measurements, 145g in weight. And yes, its also compact in size too! Since its lightweight, it's super easy to bring it in your handbag without it taking too much space as well.

Aesthetically very classy and minimalist
With only 4 buttons, its easy to control your choice of settings
I also admire that the design has been designed to be usable with just one hand. There are only 4 buttons on the machine which functions as 'an on and off button', 'to increase suction level', 'to decrease the suction level' and 'to switch between stimulation and expression'. One day I was out without my baby, and I was experiencing engorgement while I was having lunch with my sister. Thankfully the mechanics of the GoMini Electric Breast Pump is simple, that I didn't need to take it out of my bag, where I could just select the buttons and pump discreetly. Hehe. I'd consider that an achievement considering that I was pumping in public.

Did I mention that you can use your power bank to just charge this too?
Did i mention that it can be charged with a power bank too? With this feature, I won't have to worry too much on the battery level of the pump as I could just grab my power bank and charge it on the spot while im on the go. Being a mom now, I realize that the minute you have a baby on your hands, there are tons of things that you can potentially forget, for example, charging your breast pump. Not may breast pumps that I know of offers this option, but again being Millennial, this is a pretty handy feature!

Definitely easy to pump even when im traveling overseas.
With the double pumping feature, I personally feel that it gives me more 'me' time as I don't spend too much time to fully fill two bottles at a time. I went on a trip to Bali recently, and pumping has never been so light and compact. All I needed to do was wear a breastfeeding cover and quietly pump in my seat in an airplane (literally!). It doesn't really make too much sounds, making it perfect to pump even in public. Since the pump body is very small, it was actually easy to adjust the setting without looking at it. Trust me, once you've pumped a few times, it gets easier and easier.

WHATS IN THE BOX?

Here's what the set includes
Each box contains 2 sets of breast pump, which is the Pump Body, Funnel (2pcs), Bottle Stand/Cover (2pcs), Tube Connector (2pcs), Wide-neck Adapter (2pcs), Lid (2pcs), Cap (2pcs), Hood (2pcs), Sealing Disc (2pcs), Bottle (2pcs), Tube (2pcs), Inner Cup (2pcs), Milk Valves (2 pcs), Nipple (2pcs), Motor Pump Unit, Power Adapter, USB Cable. Honestly speaking, I haven't used the power cord and plug given as it's already compatible with my power bank charger. I think this is a great feature to highlight as you won't have to worry about compatibility and instead you can use a universal cable to charge your breast pump. Not many breast pump offers this feature, i can gurantee you that. Hehe

EASY WASHING WITH MINIMAL PARTS

Minimal with washing too! After every pumping session, these are the crucial 5 pieces to wash
Don't we hate washing our breast pumps? Well, in case youre wondering how many parts does this breast pump contains, if you dismantle it, it only has 5 parts to wash which are the pump body lid, inner cup, pump body, funnel, and the milk valve. Considering the bottle immediately collects the milk, you can just interchange the pump into a bottle and immediately feed your baby. Isn't that convenient? Also, if you already have bottles that are wide neck, this set includes an adapter so you don't have to worry about switching bottles. How convenient is that?

What are my thoughts?
So, as an overall verdict, I would have to say that its great breast pump to have and you'd definitely wouldn't need any other breast pump once you've tried this yourself. Looking for a pump that is light and compact? This is it! It can perfectly fit at the side of your handbag pocket without adding on to the weight. For those who know me, they would know that im petite and big bulky bags dont look good on me. Thus, with this breast pump, it helps me keep things minimal effortlessly and it definitely doesn't add on too much weight in your bag. Hehe. LOVE IT! If youre buying this for a pregnant friend, or for your wife or simply for yourself, I can guarantee that you can never go wrong with this purchase. There's really nothing to not love about it. Well, i'll end my post here, and i thank you for reading up till the end on my review. Leave me a comment if you may have any other questions, and i'll be more than happy to provide you with the answers. TTFN xx
