I have the medela in style but I don't feel it's doing it's job. My insurance is giving me a hard time about renting the symphony . My options from them are the hygenia q, or ameda purely yours. Anyone have experience? Are they just like the medela ? I'm also looking up the medela lactina on ebay. Anyone use that one ? In need of reviews

If your insurance is giving you a Hygeia, get it!The Hygeia will do the same job as the Lactina, so it's not worth investing the money. I recently sold my Lactina on ebay (I was using the Hygeia more because of size), it is a great pump, but since I've tried them both, I can tell you they have the same power and suction, so, take the free one! LOL!

I personally am not a fan of the lactina, it has no letdown feature and I dont feel it was at all better than my PISA or Freestyle.

I would go with a hygeia for sure.

Whats up with the pump in style thats not pleasing you?

All hygeia are closed systems so they are worth it

It's the same pump except the Q does not have a record button, there isn't a handle and it doesn't have an internal battery. The motor and performance are the same. The Q is only sold to insurance companies and the Enjoye is sold retail. It performs like a hospital grade pump.

My insurance gave me the ameda. I have to put speed/suction to highest for best effectiveness. Overall tho its fine. I don't pump a ton.. i got it since insurance covered it and we visit family alot so i pump for trips. I never had medela to compare.
