Manual Breast Pump

Posted by on Mar. 12, 2014 at 3:03 PM

 Hi Everyone,

I am looking to buy a cheaper manual breast pump for traveling only. We travel during the summer and I would rather not haul my electric pump with us in the car to save space so I was looking for a cheaper but decent pump that I could pump with while riding in the car between stops. I have looked at the Medela and the Even flo. I have a Medela electric that I love but was wondering if anyone has ever used the EvenFlo brand and liked it or if you have other suggestions. :)

Thanks.

EvenFlow is terrible. We call the electric version "EvilFlo" or nipple shredder. I can't imagine the manual would be any different.

I have the Avent Isis and a Medela Harmony the hospital gave me. I like them both. Think both are around $40

I loathe manual pumps but prefer the Medela over the Avent.

I had a medela manual when I had my son and it was absolutely awful but no one showed me how to use a pump until I bought my electric one. At that point I had tossed the manual one.
