Thread: Request for thoughts on choosing a hospital-grade pump

    Default Request for thoughts on choosing a hospital-grade pump

    I wanted those of you in this community if you have any thoughts on how to select a hospital-grade pump without being able to try them out first. I realize they may work differently for different people, but I'd love to hear any tips or experiences, especially about any of the following:

    Medela Lactina

    Ameda Platinum

    Medela Symphony

    Are there any of these you have seen or heard to be especially helpful for maximizing supply? Do you have any tips for a novice on how to select one between these?

    Thanks so much for any thoughts!

    I used a Lactina and it worked really well. I wonder if there's a big difference between the hospital-grade pumps- I think they're all pretty good, YK?

    Are you thinking of buying one, or renting one? And what has got you to this point of needing one? If you let us know, maybe we can help!

    I love the Symphony. It was the only one available at my hospital but it's awesome. I've used it for almost 9 months now.
