Best Manual Breast Pump? Help Please!
 
I am expecting our 3rd girl in Sept. I want to have a pump on hand for engorgement or an evening out. With my last DD I had an Avent Isis single manual pump and it was ok for a while then the little petal part sort of lost suction. So, maybe it was a fluke. I've thought of rebuying it.

Any recommendations for an inexpensive manual pump that works well?

no:( im sorry but i would say that a medela pump in style is amazing!!! well worth the money and maybe you could find one cheaper somewhere.

I loved the ISIS, but if that isn't your cuppa, maybe you can try the Medela Harmony? I have a friend that has it and loves it as well. My ISIS has now lasted me through 2 kiddos and 22+ months of bf'ing with sporatic use.

I've tried several - and by far -my favorite has been the lansinoh manual pump you can get @ Wal-Mart for $35. I've got several friends who say they feel the same.... of course, for electric were Medela PIS addicts! lol.

I bought the Medela Harmony for my diaper bag (for when I am out and about and nursing isn't ideal or if I am engorged) and I reallyt like it. I have a PISA for frequent pumping.

I have a Medela Harmony manual I got from the hospital. Its the only manual Ive used, but it got the job done. I also have the Medela Swing, not as pricey as their bigger pumps, and perfect for occasional pumping.
