Small, compact and super lightweight, it has everything one looks for in a single electric breast pump.
Main Functions in Detail
First up, it is a one-split dual use electric breast pump. What this means is that it can either be a complete all-in-one on the go pump (without the restriction of a wire), or a separated table top pump at home.
In portable mode, this integrated electric breast pump can be operated with just one hand, thanks to its small and exquisite size.
Nevertheless, it is engineered with 3 modes - Massage, Pump and Milk - the first two of which you're probably already familiar with.
The Milking function, though, is where it may be confusing to some. This is actually specially designed for newborn mothers who are not so familiar with breastfeeding yet. More like an automatic mode, it does everything for you when you press and hold the 'M button' for 3 secs.
Each mode is compatible with 8 adjustable levels (up to the number of suctions per minute and intensity) so you can choose the most comfortable one for yourself to help with better lactation.
Don't worry about noise - the working noise of this pump is 48dB only and that is equivalent to say, a quiet indoor whisper.
You do not have to worry about about waking your baby up or disturbing your colleague anymore.
Now, perhaps what most of you are most concerned about, is the suction ability of the Yihunion.
We don't blame you, after all, it is a single breast pump that relies on batteries (in portable mode) most of the time, and we know how batteries are often inferior to that of power outlet.
But boy, aren't we so wrong! The suction power of this little device here is unbelievably strong - there is absolutely nothing to worry about in that department. In fact, if you read the users' review here, you will see that the powerful suction is what's most raved about.
We will say that the lasting power of the 900mAh rechargeable lithium battery is decent.
One full charge can give you 6 pumps so it should last you a day at least for sure.
It comes with a USB charger so it is very convenient to charge with different sources as almost everything has a USB port nowadays.
Nevertheless, it will be nice if a plug in is provided as well so that you get the option of charging via a power socket when at home. You can buy it separately though, if this is what you prefer.
Nevertheless, the Yihunion Single Breast Pump is not short on the accessories department. The package includes:
Yes, even a mini breast pump bag is included. A high quality one, mind you, with the inside insulated with aluminium film and the exterior made of 600D high-elastic PVC oxford cloth. It is durable and scratch-resistant, not to mention very lightweight.
And yes, it also provides 10 breast milk storage bags that can hold up to 7.75oz/220ml of breast milk. Made from BPA-free food grade material , they are suitable for both fridge and freezer and they come with easy-to-use perforated tear-off tops. is leakproof with double zipper locks.
You can express milk directly into these bags and not worry about any spillage as the leakproof double zipper lock ensures no milk can spill out during storing or freezing.
Likewise for milk bottle expression - the Speaker cover (a large-diameter silicone) prevents milk from spilling and it is suitable for mothers of all types of breast shapes.
An anti-back flow design further strengthen its hygiene level as the closed system prevents breastmilk from backing up to the pump. It separates milk and air to ensures milk hygiene, prevent infection, and keep the milk fresh.
Last but not least, we like how the split design of the Yihunion makes it super easy to clean and disinfect so you can rest assured there is no bacteria residue creeping around your pump.
