    Default Ameda Vs Medela breast pump - please advice

    Hello,

    My son is one month old and i rented medela symphony for the first month from the hospital. Now I am planning to go back to work and planning to buy either medela backpack or ameda backpack. Please post your opinion on which is good in terms of convinience, functionality and performance. Does ameda has the let down button as in medela??

    Thanks for the opinion,

    i was told by a lc that medela has something wrong with the tubing, where you can't clean it, and milk splahes back into the tubing... i have an ameda purely yours... works great!

    I have the Ameda Purely Yours and I love it! It's not that big and I chose the one that came with the tote bag as opposed to the backpack and it works great. The lactation consultant who taught my breastfeeding class recommended Ameda over Medela.

    Thanks for the replies. I wanted to know if ameda has the let down function which is there in medela symphony i rented from hospital. It seems easy to use that let down button which gets the milk fast. I already bought the medela pumping kit, can i use it with ameda pump??

    Thanks alot,

    Just another note, i initially had very low milk supply thats the reason we rented the pump to increase supply. So i want to buy a product which is close the to the one we rented in hospital,

    thanks,

    The Ameda doesn't have a let down button like the medela does.
