Is the playtex nursing necessities 16 piece petite double electric breast pump kit a good one to use?

  • Honey the lil 20, 30 bucks one that is a manual work's just as good. I tried the one's that cause 80, 90 bucks and got fed up with them. Then I got one of the lil 25 dollar one's from wal-mart that was a manual pump and it was the best thing in the word! I ended up using it the whole time I was breat feeding.

  • I had problems producing milk, and I later found out from a lactation consultant that the exact same breast pump was not strong enough. They tole me the same thing, that I would have been better off to have used the manual one. So, i would not recomend it. Good luck!

  • I have used a hospital grade for 3 months now (Medela Symphony) and love it. I was advised by a lactation consultant to stick w/ brands that focus on breast pumps, like Medela or Ameda.

  • Okay...the person that said the manual pump is fine is a brave woman! You need an electric one if you plan on pumping often. Manual pumping works but takes a long time and is a pain. The electric one takes long enough. I used the madela pump in style, you can find a used one on craigslist.
