Breast Pumps (General)
At the minimum, you will need to select a breast pump motor (TailorMade Pro or MadeToTravel); measure each of your nipples for 2 breast shields; select a set of T-Joints to fit your milk bottles. For details, head here.
Our system is currently compatible with the following brands of wide-necked milk bottles: Pigeon, Tommee Tippee, Spectra, MAM, Philips Avent, Snapkis & Hegen (when used with their adaptor). We have different T-joints to cater to the above, so do check with us or your Retailer if you need help on selection.
TailorMade Pro: 524g, 116 x 116 x 85mm
MadeToTravel: 224g, 95 x 95 x 56mm
For Singapore, a TailorMade Pro demo set is available at the Mothercare store in KK Hospital. You may wish to call up the outlet before heading down .
TailorMade Pro is a lightweight, hospital-grade pump. With the Individualised Breast Customisation Programme, it is a highly versatile pump that can assist mums with their breastfeeding issues and milk-yield goals.
MadeToTravel is a petite personal-use grade pump, which is just as powerful as TailorMade Pro. Its Dual Stimulation Phase is designed for mums with precious little time, as it helps stimulate a faster letdown.
|No, MadeToTravel do not have Individual Breast Customisation Programme. MadeToTravel has the Synchronised|

Breast Pumps (Troubleshooting)
This feature is only available on TailorMade Pro. To select Individual Breast Customisation programme, press both Left and Right buttons together at the same time.
Our breast pumps have a Memory Function that remembers your last settings used. The Memory Function does not apply when for the Individual Breast Customised Programme.
You can sterilise milk bottles, teats, pacifiers, pump parts, cutleries, water bottles, cups,etc. For the LoveClean Pro, electronics cannot be sterilised. Latex and materials with less than a 60°C melting point should not be UV Sterilised.
You can purchase a replacement UV Steriliser Lamp through NotTooBig by clicking here.
The Mate has 5 functions (steamer, blender, reheating, defrosting, sterilising) while the Pro has 7 (additional milk warmer, porridge/rice/pasta cooker). That aside, what our customers tell us is they love the Mate for its fuss-free selections – it only has one button manual blend or steam. Those who use the Pro favour it for the convenience of a built-in timer, timing selections and multiple blend selections.
LoveCook Pro: There is Timer Function to set the duration of each programme. You may adjust the timings with the (+) or (-) signs.
LoveCook Mate: There is no Timer Function and you would need a separate timer/clock. The User Manual provides estimated cooking timings.
