    Question Best pump for less than $100?

    I am getting ready to start pumping and I would like a nice dual pump. I did a search but I didn't see any information about the Evenflo pumps. Does anyone have one? What are your thoughts? The person purchasing it for me is more than likely going to walmart... suggestions welcomed!!!

    I have a single evenflo pump and it is terrible, it was a waste of money. I get more with a hand pump.

    I have many mama's speaking of the purely yours pump. At walmart they carry the Lansinoh which is the same pump just different color and name on it. Might be something to consider..

    So i decide to call the lactation specialist and she didn't recommend the Elan system. She said I was better off getting the Medela Swing (single pump) that was basically the same price. she said I would spend a few more minutes pumping, but the results would be greater!

    Please do some research before purchasing an Evenflo pump. Moms sometimes get really bad nipple damage from these pumps because the cycles (how long nipple is drawn into the breastshield) are so long and the suction is not easily controlled. The First Years often has the same kind of issues. Think of it this way--any brand that has interest in the bottle feeding industry doesn't have incentive to manufacture pumps that help maintain a mother's milk production levels and breast integrity.

    If you want information about a particular pump, check out epinions:

    I would suggest trying to get a pump through WIC or even through your insurance company.

    There are good pumps that are not too much over $100. The Lansinoh (made by Ameda is about 125 at Target.

    ETA: Your IBCLC made a very good point.

    I bought the Evenflo Pump from Wal-Mart for $49, complete waste of money! In order to get any milk flow I have to have it set on max and my nipples get very sore. I already am having a problem with that so I am not going to use it anymore. I only bought it to relieve engorgement and encourage a good milk supply. It did relieve the engorgement enough for my lo to feed again.

    Exactly why some mothers call these pumps "evilflo".
