4 Bumps

What auto breastpump?

I have only used a manual breast pump but would like to be able to pump more efficiently this time around since I'll be working nights... Any advise on your favorite type of breast pump and why?

  • I dont like the auto ones.. i really liked the manual ones.. i could control everything myself and it seemed to get more milk as well

  • I used a Lansinoh for over a year...multiple times a day when I did work and it was fantastic...MUCH cheaper than the Medela but both very good :)

  • Me, and just about everyone I know, use the Medela Pump and Style. Works well, relatively easy to get new parts.

  • I too used the Medela in style double pump. It was the best investment I ever made. I used it for both of my kids. And if I have another one, I will take it out again.

  • I have a Lansinoh and I love it. It is cheaper than the medela but seems to do the same thing.

  • I used the Ameda Purely Yours pump and it was great!! I bought one recently for a friend who just had a baby and she likes it.

  • I have only used a manual pump and wasn't sure if I should do an auto.. really, and this may be TMI, but I feel like a milk cow when I tried an auto pump last time. mentally not a good pic for producing.
