I am a first time mom and was hoping someone might be able to suggest a good breat pump that isn't going to break the bank.

Depending on your insurance, you could actually get one free with a prescription from your doctor. I got one for free and used it 1 time. lol.



I had a rental for a month and decided to bottle feed only like right after I picked my pump up from the pharmacy. My daughter had a hard time breast feeding and I hated pumping like 3 times for 1 of her feedings. My milk supply was gone almost instantly since my baby spent a while in the NICU after she was born.



If you don't mind using a pump that was used once, I'll sell you mine. Its a Medela Pump In Style Advance. It's pretty expensive,and It's a popular one. It's electronic (power outlet or battery operated) and comes in a black case with a section in it for keeping bottles cool. You just need to buy new attachments for sanitary purposes. Attachments are about $15.



Let me know. iysha525@yahoo.com

Ameda is #1 in canada. I have the Purely yours double electric with closed circuit.It's hospital grade. look it up on the internet the reviews are phenominal.



I am done with it if anyone is interested in purchasing from me.

It's 215 new!

Also weights only 1 lb and is very compact and many speed and frequency settings



I also ahve some replacement pieces as well as the smaller breast cups for it.



Like NEW!



Is good for minimum puping to maximum every 2-3 hour pumping!

Medela Pump-n-Style...best one aside from the hospital grade pumps. You know what you may want to explore? My hospital rented out pumps. It's a good idea to maybe do that first if you're going to pump just to see if it will actually work for you. You don't want to spend $300 on a pump if BF doesn't work out for you or if you can't use a pump, which some women do find they have difficulty with. But, I also recommend a manual pump, Medela makes one, I had that and liked it as well. Good Luck!

I bought the Lansinoh manual pump at first, then purchased the Lansinoh double electric pump. I loved both. Very affordable ($30 for manual; $160 for electric), with most of the features similar to Medela... just no bag with the double eletric. Which I didn't mind, because I just put it into the diaper bag that the hospital gave me. www.lansinoh.com for more information... Good luck to you.

Medala swing is a great pump. I had problems with feeding right from the breast so I only pump and this pump is great!

I was recommended a hand pump from the hospitals lactation nurse. the Phillips Avent single hand it was only 35$ it worked GREAT!.


I also used the Avent breast pump and I loved it.



My friends have bought the Medela Advanced Backpack Pump In Style Breast pump becasue they plan on going back to work it has two pumps for both breast. But it cost about $250.00 Canadian.

Medela Harmony is what I use! it's not electric, but it isnt the least bit hard on your arm/hand. And it only cost me 75 bucks :)

I love my medela pump in style! its is pricey, but I think that it is wonderful! Based on your income, you can sometimes get help renting them.

Medela is a great brand! I bought the Medela Mini Electric, which has a manual option, a battery powered option and a plug in option. It was great because I only pumped occasionally and I didn't need anymore of a pump than that. It cost me $160, but the Babies R Us website has it for $129.99. If you are going to pump lots, go with Lisa's suggestion of the Style Advanced by Medela. Good luck!

I love my evenflo comfort select it's not one of the most expensive but in my opinion its wonderful.... like stated below, though, if your expecting more then... maybe get a more pricey one b/c im sure its worth it.

Medela Pump in Style Advanced, it's pricey but I think it's well worth it. And if you plan on more children, very worth it! Also, if you rent it from the hospital, you could have bought one for what they would charge you in 4 months! Good Luck.
