The MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump follows the launch of the company’s hugely popular single pump. The pump’s stimulation and expression modes each have 9 settings, and users can select different settings for each breast. Other features include a timer to track expressing, optional alarm, and a rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 3 hours.


As well as operating as an electric pump, it can also convert to a manual pump, and comes with two bottles and storage pots. At £215, the pump is slightly more expensive than similar products from other brands, but its versatility and portability make this MadeForMum Awards 2021 Gold winner worth the money.

Tested by

Jessica, a journalist based in North East London, tested the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Pump to assist her in exclusively breastfeeding her 3-month-old daughter.

What were your first impressions of the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump?

I love the sleek design of the MAM 2 in 1 breast pump unit. Along with the double electric pump, the box contains a handle to convert one to a manual pump, as well as two milk storage pots, two anti-colic bottles and two additional size 0 teats, for extra slow milk flow. All of the pump components feel sturdy, durable and well-made, and the parts are BPA and BPS-free.

How easy is it to put together?

Both the electric and manual pumps are easy to put together once you’ve figured it out, although the instructions could be a little clearer. I had to check out a couple of YouTube videos before I could get everything working properly. It’s important to make sure that the valve membrane forms a seal with the valve body, for example. And in my sleep-deprived state I initially tried pumping with the funnel cover on! But, once I’d got the hang of it, I could put the pump together in around a minute.

How long does the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump’s battery last?

I plugged the pump into the mains for my first use, but the device was already almost fully charged, so could have been used without mains power. Once charged, the pump unit should last for up to 3 hours before it needs recharging, similar to the Nuby Double Digital Electric Breast Pump, £170. The fact that the battery is rechargeable is a big plus.

How comfortable is the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast pump to use?

I found the pump to be really comfortable. The funnels each have an optional silicone cushion for comfort, but I didn’t feel I needed to use these, however they might be more useful for someone who is new to pumping.

Once switched on, the pump starts on a stimulation setting, designed to mimic the first sucks a baby takes when she latches on. Once the milk starts to flow, you press a button to change the suction to draw the milk out as a baby would, with slower sucks. The stimulation and expression modes each have 9 settings, and you can select different settings for each breast when both pumps are in use. All of the controls are on the pump unit and I found I didn’t need to move beyond level 1 for either mode.

How effective is the pump?

I found the electric pump to be really effective. On my first use, I was able to collect around 120mls from one breast in 10 minutes – enough for a feed for my 12-week-old. As someone who has only used a manual pump in the past, this was a revelation! You can pump directly into a bottle or attach a storage pot, which can go straight into the fridge or freezer.

Is the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Pump noisy?

The pump obviously does make some noise when it’s running, but I personally wasn’t bothered by it. It seemed quiet enough ­– the baby slept through it!

A number of parent reviews on the MAM website also commented on how much quieter this pump was, compared to other pumps they’d tried.

How portable is the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump?

The pump unit itself is roughly the size and weight of a 500ml bottle of water, so definitely feels portable. The pumps come with funnel covers to keep them clean while on the go, too. The double electric pump easily fitted into a side compartment of my nappy changing bag, however as a parent review on the MAM website pointed out, it would have been great if the pump came with a storage bag for when you’re out and about.

Was there anything about the MAM 2 in 1 pump you would have changed?

One niggle is that the pump doesn’t come with a carry case, which is a shame as it is such a handy portable device. If I ended up travelling with the pump, I’d probably buy a travel pouch to keep everything together. Also, because there are so many components, I did end up having to store the pump in two pieces of Tupperware – not the most attractive storage solution!

Is the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump easy to clean?

Yes; the pump components are easy enough to clean and are dishwasher-safe.

It’s worth noting that the set doesn’t come with any sterilising equipment, so while you might feel comfortable doing this in a pan on the stove, it may be easier to buy a steriliser. I used a microwavable tub for sterilising and that worked well.

How does the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump compare to other breast pumps you’ve used?

In the past, I’ve used a Tommee Tippee manual breast pump and found using an electric pump a much more comfortable experience. It’s definitely easier on your wrists! And, while I tend to give myself a neck ache craning to see how much milk I’m collecting in different positions with a manual pump, I found I wasn’t doing this with the electric pump.

What’s in the box?

  • Pump unit with adapter and tubing connectors
  • 2 x funnels, with silicone cushions and covers
  • 2 x pump membranes, caps, valve bodies and valve membranes
  • 2 x additional spare valve membranes
  • Manual pump handle, handle holder and cap stopper
  • 2 x anti-colic bottles with teats and caps
  • 2 x storage pots
  • 2 x additional size 0 teats

Are there any additional extras you can buy?

There aren’t any extras specific to the pump, although MAM do sell sterilisers if that’s something you’d like to invest in alongside this.

It’s a shame they don’t sell a travel pouch or case for the pump as I would definitely buy one if I was planning to take it out and about with me, or on a trip away.

Who would the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump be most useful for?

I didn’t use the pump to increase my milk supply – I’m more of an occasional user, and tend to pump when engorged, or to prepare a feed that my partner can give to the baby. The MAM 2 in 1 pump worked well for me, but given the multitude of settings, I imagine it would also be suitable for people looking to boost their supply.

Also, as it’s a double pump it’s great for those mums who are short of time and need to pump as quickly and effectively as possible. And if you like the freedom of swapping between an electric or manual pump, this means you only need to buy one.

Is the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump worth the money?

All in all, I love this pump. It is really simple to use, and the many settings make it easy to customise to your needs. At £200, the pump is slightly more expensive than similar offerings from Tommee Tippee and Lansinoh, although it’s the same price as the Philips Avent double electric pump. But it absolutely made my life easier, and I can imagine it having an even greater impact for someone who pumps regularly.

I was also impressed that it came with two bottles. My baby took to them straight away, even though she had never fed from a bottle before.

MadeForMums verdict:

I found the MAM 2 in 1 Double Electric Breast Pump easy and comfortable to use and was impressed at how quickly I was able to express a sufficient amount of milk. The multiple settings make it easy to customise, and the sleek and compact design, as well as protective funnel covers, make it a good option for travel – although it does not come with a carry case. The pump was quiet enough and didn’t annoy me or disturb my sleeping baby. Overall, I feel the pump made my life easier, although I would probably recommend it to those looking to pump regularly, to justify the price tag.
