    Default finding a pump issues



    So I'm looking for a double pump for when I go back to school.

    All I can find is the mipump and the evenflo comfort select within my price range and both have horrible reviews.

    Other than those I can only find medela and I cant afford to spend $400 on a pump.

    I'm getting frustrated.

    $400 are you serious??? I got my Medela PISA at BRU it was $280 and I got it for $250....Wow, $400 is really expensive. Are you close to the border at all?

    Not close enough really...

    But now that you mention it I have two friends who travel to the US often (they are citizens and here on work permits).

    And yeah... the medela PISA is 359.99 plus tax and the Freestyle is 399.99

    I really need something not more than $200.00

    I'd see if they could help you out.

    I though there was a link floating around on here where you could get one cheaper...I can't remember what it was though to even search for it.

    The PISA is good, has everything you need but you will want something like a pumping bra so you can do hands free - you can make one for free though. I stupidly bought one for $30.

    Yay! I have a friend who can pick me up a Lansinoh Double Pump when she goes to vermont in a few weeks.

    That one has many more good reviews than bad!
