I have the Lansinoh double electric which is exactly the same as the Ameda purely yours but is purple instead of green. I bought mine at Target, and I love it. It was a lot less expensive than the Medela electrics. I also have a Medela Harmonly manual pump that will come in handy when I go out in the evening or something and need something small that will fit in a handbag. I have used it when I am home and it works great for the occasional pumping.

I have an Avent electric and love it! We also have Avent bottles that screw in to it so that's convenient for pumping.

I too have the Lanisnoh double electric and it works great and has a great price! I think especially since you may not being using it daily, this might be a good option. I usually use mine daily and am now using it with a second baby and I can't complain.

Just wanted to let you know I saw the Avent manual pump on clearance at Target yesterday. It was around $30 I believe. GL!
