Re: help me pick a breast pump

IMO, the Medela PIS is best. Plus, if you're an intactivist, the Amea Purely Yours is manufactured by the company that manufactures the plastibell. But even if I weren't an intactvist myself, I still wouldn't get the Purely Yours, the PIS is way better.

Re: help me pick a breast pump

I used both the PIS & Purely Yours, the Purely yours was way more comfortable, better control settings & gave better output, the PIS was so uncomfortable I couldn't get a let down and the plastic being a softer plastic than the PY flange caused too much friction and rubber my areola raw

Re: help me pick a breast pump

I had a PIS and a PY and really, I was NOT impressed with the PIS. It wasn't bad at all, don't et me wrong. I just prefered the PY. It was easier to adjust the settings on it, it was more compact (this was before you could really take the motor out of the PIS case) and lighter. The case was ugly, bulky, and top heavy though.
If I can manage it this time, I'll be getting an Avent dual electric. As nice as their manual pump is, the electric's gotta rock.

Not on the poll, but I got a Lactina on eBay for $200, and it's a great pump. It's a real workhorse, built to withstand years of constant use, and has excellent resale value.

It's nice to have one I can loan out without any contamination issues.

Re: help me pick a breast pump

I have an Avent Isis Electric and it works perfect for me (new Ebay $65) but my friend who pumps and feeds has a Ameda (the double pump) and she has good luck with hers and she uses it much more than I use mine.
