Right now I'm trying to decide exactly what type to get and im not sure. I wasn't able to breast feed with my first child because of complications....

I used Avent Isis manual pump. I loved it! Used it with both kids. No matter what pump you choose remember at first you wont get a lot, so don't get discouraged. Practice makes perfect. Within a week of nursing and pumping i was able to get more then 8ozs a bottle. the only reason i pumped was because i had over production from day 1 and it killed. I donated my extra milk to the NICU:)

I used the Medela Pump in Style also, but I never had much luck with sister used the same pump and she exclusively breastfed twins while working...she is my breastfeeding hero!

I used the Avent Duo Isis IQ with both of my boys and I loved it. Well, loved it as much as you could love a torture machine. Lol. My boys were both born premature and would not take to the breast so I had to pump my milk. The Isis IQ has a memory or it can be used as a manual pump. I had to use mine a few time as a manual pump in the hospital and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. I have recommended this pump to several women. Two of them happen to be close friends. And they both loved it. Good Luck.

I used the Medela Pump in Style - it worked great! It's a double electric pump. The whole thing comes inside a backpack so you can pack it up really quick and go. It comes with four bottles, a carrying case and ice pack to keep it cold, and it's easy to wash and operate. You can plug it in to the wall or use batteries. You can check it out here:

For my first few weeks I had to use a breast pump. I went with the Evenflo Comfort Select Performance (Dual Automatic Cycling Breast Pump) I think it was great. only down fall to it was that you had to hold it. It has no BPA and you can set it to how strong you want it.
