    Default breast pumps

    I am wanting to buy a breast pump instead of renting one this time does anyone have any advice on which pump is the best? I also want to ask others what they think of buying a used pump I am not sure what to do I have my 4th c-section in one week and still can not decide on what to do

    depends upon how often you need to use it (occasional, every day, working full time, part time, etc). Can you give any more information? If you're pumping every day I would say at least get a double electric one like pump in style advance.

    I think a breast pump is a personal thing.

    I bought a Medela Pump In Style Breast Pump. But, this was when my son was 6 months old and I went back to work. Before that, I used Medela Swing Breast Pump (a friend lent me) because I wasn't pumping every day and I didn't need to pump in a specific time.

    The Pump In Style works great for me at work, I can pump both breasts in 15 minutes and be back at work! A must since I work at 9-1-1.

    Personally, I gravitate to Medela nursing products and Avent bottles/pacifiers.

    I have a Medela Swing pump and I use it once every morning. I did have a few problems with the motor, but after calling customer service at Medela, they sent a new one overnight. It was great.

    I tried my sister-in-law's Ameda double breast pump, and I didn't think it got as much milk from me.

    So, if you have time to spare, Medela swing. If not, I would get the Medela double breast pump. One thing about the motor...make sure you keep it on for a few minutes after pump to get rid of the condensation. Also, my insurance company reimbursed me $50....def. worth looking in to.
