  • it really depends on they reason you will be needing it. If you will be working, you need a good dual electric pump in order to make it. Medela is the best

  • If you need it for full time at work or school or something like that then a double electric and I recommend Medela. If it is just an occasional outing then a single hand pump is sufficient.

  • I have a Lansinoh and it is half the price of the medela and it works great.

  • I have a Medela swing pump, and it works great.

  • Ok the medela sounds great, ive actually used their manual pump in the hospital for previous births, but ecodani, what lansinoh brest pump would you reccomend?? it will prolly be either/ or one of those, and yes im going to try to pump full time, and for outings.

  • I'm sure ecodani is probably referring to the Lansinoh double electric pump:

    Target also carries it in store.

    If you don't mind me asking...why you are going to pump full time? It's really, really difficult to maintain a supply that way...(I know from experience)
