Re: Best electric breastpump?

My Ameda Purely Yours was awesome.. The other ones that you have are ok if you are just going to pump once in a while.. but if you are going to pump more than that a good double pump is needed..

You can get great discounts on pumps at http://www.hackleyhme.com/

I got a swing and a PISA from them. I love them both for different reasons. I had ever intended to get the PISA, but found myself exclusively pumping for the first 5 weeks and really needed a double pump. The swing is a great pump though, especially for under 100.

Lansinoh makes a double electric that is identical to the Ameda but the Lansinoh run about $150 and they have them at Target and Wal-mart. You can also feel okay about buying them used because its a closed tube system which means milk never can back into the pump! therefore everything can be sterilized!

I absolutely love mine (EBF and stayed home so it didn't get alot of use) I just wish I had had one with DD. I would have probably been able to BF longer if I had this awesome pump!

I just wanted to say thank you for this post. I went to that site and they had to email the prices to me. Definitely the best prices I've seen and I needed to find this pump at the lowest possible price. My doctor wrote me a prescription for my pump in order to get our insurance company let us use our FSA card to buy it. Then DH had to have an unexpected medical procedure that took the last of that money, so now the pump money has to come out of pocket again. I'm determined to get this pump, so finding this website was very helpful.

Re: Best electric breastpump?

The medela pump in style is great. It was worth the money to me and I'm sure I"ll use it with future kiddoes. I also have an avent isis hand pump that I like really well. The two you currently own are pretty bad. Definitely get yourself a better one! It will still be cheaper than the cost of formula!

MEDELA PUMP IN STYLE !
Or medela hospital grade ..
almost the same..
double pumping.. electric (or battery) differant speeds and suck strenghth..
I have been using my PIS for over 2 yrs ( I used an Ameda hospital grade that the NICU loaned to me, for 4 months , and while it is pretty awesome, it isnt AS awesome as the Medela, IMO)
I pumped occationally when my son was a toddler with an evenflo electric and a manual one ( cannot recall brand) and it was so horrible and inefficiant ( and painful) that i had better results with hand expressing!

If you will be pumping full time/long term and qualify for WIC, WIC offers a Medela PIS to select clients , for you to KEEP.!!
We qualified for the free PIS through WIC because my youngest DD is an ex- micropreemie,medically fragile/special needs and has a feeding tube and I have been pumping long term.
..... AND often times they will loan you a Medela hospital grade one for free.
