    Default So, which is best?

    What is the best pump for FT working mamas?

    I had gotten the Avent Isis Duo Electric, because it seemed like it got decent reviews and it was cheap. Get what you pay for, right? I only get 3 oz, and that's with compressions and massage the whole time. I'm not pumping nearly enough for DS; yes, I do believe he was getting over-fed---we'e fixing that out of necessity since we're out of frozen milk--but I'm not even pumping enough for the 1.5 oz/hr guide.

    What have you found to be the most reliable pump that gets you good output?

    Medela Pump in style worked great for me, my sister used it after me for a little bit, and a friend borrowed it after that

    I used a Lansinoh (back when it was a purple Ameda PY), a PISA, a Freestyle, a couple others, and several hospital pumps, including a Symphony and a Limerick.

    I'd buy a Hygeia if I was a FT working, not EPing mom.

    WHO compliant, FDA approved for more than one user, unlike other commonly used pumps, and the motors are excellent.

    3 oz for a pumping session isn't bad. Fairly average, actully. I used to average about 3 oz.

    Any of them, as they are all built to the same standards ad all WHO compliant, pass-along approved and recyclable

    http://www.hygeiababy.com/product-details.php?pid=3 is their professional grade pump
    http://www.hygeiababy.com/product-details.php?pid=1 is their hospital grade, and the price is not bad at all
