Purchased one a couple of days ago for my partner but can't get on with it. Even though it has been used can I take back to get a refund ?

    i would imagine it would only be returnable if faulty under the sale of goods act...is there maybe online videos or a helpline (Im not a mum) so no other advice re pumping im afraid.

    I'd be surprised if you can return it, but you should be able to sell it on easily enough if you were so inclined.

    I guess you could sell it on as tried out (in working order) but not used but I don't think you can return it as it isn't faulty.

    I used a manual one and found them ok as you're totally in control. But even they take a bit of practice.

    Before you scrap it, Is the pump the issue or that the milk is not let down because of the circumstances? Might be worth giving it a try when your partner is completely relaxed and holding the baby - health visitor or breastfeeding support group might be able to help.

    I'm pretty sure that you won't be able to return it as when I bought mine I was told it was non-returnable unless faulty. However depending on make they have good resale value.
