2 Bumps

For all the breast feeding moms out there I have a question

If you use a breast pump which one do you use?
Why did you choose that one?

I will be only using the pump for when I go back to work and to build up a stock pile for the freezer.

  • I have a Medela Swing Breast Pump

    Why? Because I had to go to work, it was way better than the other one I had, it is portable and can be operated with batteries, and it's very light weight and small.

  • I hated pumping, I never had a good pump.

  • I LOVED the Medella Pump in Style. It is super expensive though which is a bummer. I bought a used one on ebay and replaced all the parts that contact the milk.

  • Medela Pump in Style Advanced. Medela is the best, I like my pump and am very happy with it. The cheaper pumps are just that...cheaper, they just don't work nearly as well.

  • I never bought a pump. I found the Marmet technique: to be extremely effective and free.

    I love things that are free.

  • I had a Lansinoh Double pump. It was alright, but I had REALLY wanted the Medela Pump in Style. I've heard nothing but good things about it.

  • I have the ameda purely yours and have no complaints. I find this is one of the ones that usually ranks second to the medela pump in style.

    I have had nothing but positive experiences with my pump, I like the way you can adjust the suction and how fast or slow it pumps to help mimic a baby's suction.

  • I have the Medela it! It is the only one that can get anything out on the few occasions I need a bottle. You may find it hard to get much out so allow plenty of time to stock the freezer.

  • I had a few, but the best was the Pump in Style by Medela. Well, the best were the hospital rentals, but that's another story. I will absolutely recommend against any Evenflo pump, don't waste your money.
