  • I exclusively pumped for the first 3 months because my son was in the NICU. I liked the Medela Pump In Style. I also have a Medela Harmony hand pump which works great for small amounts and infrequent pumping.

  • You can rent a really effective high quality breast pump from most hospitals. Call the one you are plannning your delivery. The freedom a pump will give you is awsome:)

  • I have a Medela Swing pump, and love it. I get a lot of milk when I pump.

  • I loved my Medela I believe it was the pump in style not sure. It was a dual electric pump in a carry case with a little cooler. I loved it! I used it for well over a year and never had to replace any parts. I did steam clean the parts tubes and every thing with the microwave bags to make sure it all stayed sanitized. And my cousin was able to use it for a year as well. The thing rocked!

  • Medela Pump-in-Style! It's awesome. I used mine for a year, three times a day at work. And yes, it's a dual electric pump. You can either plug it in or use batteries (you can also buy an adapter for your vehicle).

  • I have a lansinoh double electric. It's half the price of the medela. It works great. BPA free.
