  • Once you use a good electric it's hard to go back to manual. Manuals are all I had except in the hospital when my son was in the NICU. My sisters and all of my cousins use(d) the Medela. They all rave about it. I believe they spent around $240 for them.

  • I used medella pump in style. It was expense but I had twins and went back to work when they were 2 months old. I could not have breastfeed without it.

  • The pump in style by medella is really worth the cost. If you are committed to breast feeding then it will be worth it. Just think about it in comparison to what formula would cost. One or two months worth of formula is what this pump costs. You can also go hands free wen pumping because it is so good.

  • I use an Evenflo electric pump. It was about $40 at Wal-Mart. It has been great!

  • It depends on how much pumping you'll be doing. If you are only going to be using it occasionally, the Avent manual pump is amazing. If you will need to pump when you go back to work, get a Medela or Ameda double electric. Yes, they are more expensive, but it is worth it. If you'll need to be pumping exclusively (for a preemie in the NICU), then you'll need to rent a hospital grade electric pump. Your local hospital should be able to direct you to a medical supply company that rents them, or some hospitals rent them. I prefer the Medela hospital grade pump, but the Ameda hospital grade pump works nicely, too.
