Question Help me chose Hygeia Vs. Ameda?

Hey mamas,

So I am EB, but I want to start pumping in case I get sick and I cant breastfeed my 6 weeks old directly due to the antibiotics.

I have narrowed my choice down to the Hygeia and the Ameda pumps. Do you have some experience with the pumps?

In the past, only the manual Medela pump would work at extracting milk when I was working.

Please advise me

i'd go with Hygeia. The company is World Health Organization Code complient and supports breastfeeding more then other breast pump makers. Plus, the system is made for multiple users so you can sell it when you are done using it.

I used the Ameda and it worked well for me. I've heard great things about Hygeia as well so I'm sure you can't go wrong there.

Oh and as far as antibiotics, just about all are totally safe for nursing. If you have a local IBCLC or LLL leader she can help you find more info on any drugs

Thank you Mamas. We are in the process of moving to Florida. Once we get there, I definitely want to plug in with LLL. I have never attended a meeting before...
