Cant decide which breastpump to buy? Help

Ok I have read great reviews about Ameda but it is not sold locally I would alway have to order anything I needed for it over the internet. I have heard good things about Medela and some bad things about it. But Medela is sold locally at stores so if something was to go wrong I could go to the tore that day. I am also on a fixed budget and the Ameda pump is a $100 cheaper. Which one should I choose? Please give me your reviews. I will be a busy working mom so I need a portable and quick pump.

  • Medela Pump In Style is a reliable pump. You can find used pumps on craigslist and then buy all of the tubing and personal parts new.

  • Medela for sure. I had an electric double pump and used it every day for 7mo. My son with Down Syndrome would NOT latch on. Believe me i tried. It was definetly worth it.
