    Default which pump to buy?

    I currently am using a Medela Single Deluxe electric pump. I only have to pump once at work if I have to pump at all. It takes about 15-20 minutes for me to pump each breast. I only work 4 days a week for a few hours.

    I wonder should I upgrade to a double pump, or just keep the one that I have since I am only pumping occasionally. If so, which pump would you reccomend.

    I use a Lansinoh double electric once or twice a day and it works very well for me. I think its the same thing as an Ameda purely yours. It also was fairly inexpensive about $150 at Walmart.

    That's reasonable. I wouldn't mind purchasing a double, but can't reason spending twice that much for a medela when i am only pumping once a day if that.

    I was going to recommend the Medela Pump-In-Style, but I guess you've considered that!

    I only work 4 hours a day and pump once while at work. I had a playtex pump and then went and bought the PISA. I think it was worth the money. I also found that I was able to pump more with the PISA. HTH

    Of course, it's more expensive since it's a Medela, but the Freestyle is GREAT - being able to pump handsfree while moving around anywhere is an amazing blessing. I got mine for $285 from bestbuybaby.com.

    I would love to get the pis, but don't know if it 's in my price range right now. I may invest in the future. Christmas and my birthday are coming up, so I am considering getting one then.
