Medela Harmony?!?!

Anyone use this? Not for like all the time pumping, but I will probably need something after the baby is born to just relieve some engorgement/get my milk to come in/etc...

Mostly he'll be nursing straight from the tap.

I don't plan on pumping for bottles or anything.

I had the Avent Isis with DD after buying several crappy pumps. I just want to buy ONE this time. And, the Medela is slightly cheaper than the Avent for what I need it for.

Yes, I have this and like it a lot. Its a good pump for just occasional use and relieving engorgement.

It is a great pump. It works great and it is super easy to assemble and disassemble and clean. IMO, much simpler than the Avent Isis that I previously bought. It is very compact. I used to keep the pump disassembled in a quart sized baggie and I would take it if I was traveling and in a place where I couldn't use my electric pump.

My LC told me about an acquaintance of hers who was a lactation educator and traveled frequently and only every used the Harmony. I can't imagine doing that, I think my hand would get tired if I used it too much.

Good to know. I am glad to hear that, because I really wanted to try something other than the Isis, even though I had a lot of luck with that pump it was a PITA to put together and clean/etc...
