Which breast pump do you use?

What brand of breast pump do you use or recommend? I was given a madela but I was just curious to what brand everyone else thinks is good, and are there any must buys along with it?

  • I used the medela PISA. I thought it was a great pump; almost all parts were available at BRU. My power cord went out & I had to go to Amazon for a new one; 2 days of AA batteries so that part sucked.

  • I used a medela pump in style advanced electric pump. I got it on ebay for $80 then replaced the parts that touch the skin/milk for another $20. I loved my pump!!

  • I'm renting the hospital-grade Medela Symphony. Love it, and I'm kinda afraid to down-grade when the rental is up!

  • seems like i'm the odd woman out here. i'm cheap, and didnt want to spend alot on a pump, so i didnt get a medela. i got an evenflo single side (i'm pretty sure they also make a double model also). i have nothing to compare it to, but it seems to get the job done for me. it has a removable insert you can use if the regular pump doesnt fit you. it also came with a storage cap and nipple for the bottle. it can go on AA batteries or the power cord. i got it from target for around $40.
