Description

Yes, you read right! A hospital grade breast pump for under $250! The Dew 350 was the first pump we introduced here in 2012 and remains a firm favourite with mums. The Dew 350 is a simple, powerful hospital grade breast pump which is ideal for most pumping mums. It has been used by hundreds and hundreds of Aussie mums now who love how effective it is, how easy to use, and how quiet! Please feel very free to read the reviews on the 'reviews' tab or come and visit our facebook page and ask other mums directly!

The Dew 350 is hospital grade, so it has a larger motor and is not a small pump - it is about 2k and 20cm across the base. The Dew 350 does need to be plugged in and can't be used with a car adaptor, so if portability is essential to you, then consider one of our portable breast pumps, like the M1. If you are able to set your breast pump up at work or somewhere at home and just pump in that spot, then read on. The Dew 350 has suction up to 350 mmHg, and with its strong motor, this means that you can be sure of pumping strong enough to draw out milk and build supply if needed. The suction is completely variable - the dial can be turned to adjust the suction all the way down to zero, and then turned up to suit your comfort level once pumping. When single pumping you might have the dial turned 1/3 of the way, and 2/3 of the way for double pumping. The Dew 350 has an easy and comfortable pattern of suction which mums just seem to love - it's a very smooth action.

The drawback of the Dew 350 is that it has no letdown mode - the letdown mode is a quick, light pattern of suction which helps trigger letdown, or the process by which your body starts the milk flow. As a general guide, the longer you've been breastfeeding, the harder it is to get a letdown with a breast pump, though every woman is individual so there are many exceptions. The Dew 350 will work wonderfully for perhaps 90% of mums, but if you're a mum who finds it harder to express, then a letdown mode will really help, so look at the M1 or the S2. We generally advise that if you're a new mum wanting to express, particularly if you are relying on the pump or need to build supply, the Dew 350 is ideal, but if you're a mum with an older baby, say going back to work at 10 months, then you're more likely to need a pump with a letdown mode.

What features does the Dew 350 have?

Powerful, efficient pump with a gentle pattern of suction.

  • Comes with everything you need to double pump, which saves you time and also better supports milk supply.
  • Is suitable for heavy duty use ie 8 x a day.
  • Suitable for initiating lactation and building milk supply.
  • Very quiet - it has a soft, constant noise (sounds a little like heavy breathing) and has none of the 'frog' noise that breast pumps generally have, so you can pump next to your baby or at work without worrying about the noise.
  • Closed system - like all Spectra breast pumps, the Dew 350 has a backflow filter which ensures that moisture from your milk cannot enter the pump motor. Using a pump without this kind of protection can result in mould growth in the pump motor and is a potential source of virus transmission.

What are the negatives?

  • The Dew 350 needs to be plugged in and can't be used with a car adaptor
  • You can't change the cycle speed and doesn't have a letdown mode, which some women need.

I really dislike mine. The valves come off CONSTANTLY. I have used duct tape, electrical tape, and glued them together but they still constantly fall apart during pumping. I can't explain the FRUSTRATION when you are almost done pumping, have stuff to do, have been sitting there for half an hour, and then you realize, one of the tubes has come off, and you haven't got half the milk you should have. The amount of times I have had to sit there, where I would usually enjoy the only part of the day where I get to sit on the computer, an arms everywhere mess, trying to hold the tubing together! ARRRRGH! I have had mine for about 7 months now and it holds up just fine, I'm still getting a good amount, but I am finding it gets really tired on the longer pumping sessions, now that I only have to pump twice a day. After the 45 minutes it takes to fully express, it's really struggling and hot when I finally finish up and turn it off. Wheezing... barely holding suction, even if I turn it up more. Otherwise, it works every bit as good as the $500 Medela Harmony I had before it, for a fraction of the price. Even without a let down mode. So... Yeah.

This pump is amazing. I debated over which one to buy for a while but I am really glad I went with the Dew as it is super quiet and does not annoy the poeple around me which was one of my main concerns. This will allow me to breastfeed for much longer. It also is not very heavy meaning I can take it with me when I go away. A fantastic pump that does the job in a fraction of the time that my old manual pump took.

After a lot of research and comparing, I decided on the Spectra Dew pump, and I'm so happy I did. I'm currently pumping in between feeds for my 3 week old to boost supply and getting full feeds of 120ml in 15 minutes, it's amazing!! It's so quiet and can be taken anywhere. Will recommend to all friends from now on. Beats my old Medela Mini pump by far!!!

Spectra Dew 350 is perfectly amazing and friendly as well. The delivery was very quick that i got in next 2 days of my order. The spectra bottles are also good with no spills compared to other bottles and my little one likes it a lot.

I love my Spectra Dew. It arrived the day after I ordered it and the lactation consultant at the hospital said it was a great product and that she was glad Spectra's got enough in stock to send them so quickly-- there was apparently some fears about a shortage earlier! It pumps really efficiently for me-- I'd used a Medela hospital premmie at the hospital and I can't tell the difference in pumping efficiency to be honest. The only thing I'd improve on would be the connectors on the tubing-- I'm unsure if you should wash this item and I have ended up washing it-- it's really easy to lose if you do, and it does come loose if you sterlize your flanges like I do with a steam sterilizer.
