  • Well, it's more expensive, but I love my Medala Pump in Style. But if you check Craigslist, you can usually find them for pretty cheap.

  • I used a Medela Pump in style ( I think that's what it was called!) and it worked perfectly for me for a year, and I had borrowed it from my friend who had used it for a year before that. Neither of us ever had an issue with it.

  • Medela Pump in Style is great, but it will be near $300 and it is not recommended to buy a used one.

  • Thanks, I will look into that. I would never but a used pump anyway. Doesn't seem sanitary to me.

  • I got a playtex double breast pump towards the end of my pumping career with my last baby and i LOVED it, I got it from babies r us wasn't that expensive, less than $100, I used the playtex bottles with the drop ins so it was perfect, all the bottles fit it and the drop ins stored it and I could freeze them its wonderful!
    this is exactly it, they have the deluxe that comes with a bag and is more portable or something I didn't look but this is the one I got

  • I forgot to mention that my first pump was an evenflo single battery powered pump and the ONLY reason I stopped using it was because it died after 5 yrs of ownership. I loved it, my kids weren't eager eaters, they were grazers, but it had an adjustable suction power knob dohickey that increased the suction and speed. It was awesome but I wanted a double pump and got the playtex one, bc I didn't like the way the evenflo was remodeled. Still 2 of the best purchases I have ever made, and for both inexpensive price tags, they are and were phenomenal pieces of equipment.

  • I had an evenflo before. It was inexpensive and electric and was great. The only thing I didn't like was I could only pump one breast at a time andi was wasting milk because if one was stimulated the other would leak.
