Pump Rating:

"This is the pump they gave me at the hospital when my daughter was born.

Pros: It is super easy to put together and clean afterwards. The suction is easy to manipulate with the one handed pump mechanism. I have used it 2-3 times a week for 3+ months without any problems. The original valve continues to work great. You can actually clip on and use bags verses the bottle that comes with it. (although it does take some practice taking them off when full)

Cons: A little long to pump one side while feeding from the other. It can be done, just takes a bit of adjusting. Would definitely recommend it for the primarily breast feeding mom that pumps occasionally."

"I've been really happy with this purchase. Perfect for mamas that are mainly nursing and want to use this as a back up. Love the design for the one handed pump. Easy to clean and you can use most other brands of bottles."

S. Wright - NY

Pump Rating:

"This is a great inexpensive manual pump! The lactation counselor at the hospital where my son was born actually gives this pump to moms after one month of successful breastfeeding. It is easy to use, very comfortable, and easy to take apart for cleaning and re-assemble. This pump is perfect for a mom that wants to pump daily to have extra milk stored for someone else to give baby a feeding, or to use to make cereal when baby is older. I would not recommend this pump if you plan to use it more than once a day, just because it would get old using it, washing it, and putting it back together every time. But if once or twice daily use is what you have in mind, this is the pump for you!"

"I've had this pump for a couple of months now, and I have to say it is very easy to assemble and use. It's so easy, I can even use it while nursing my son on the other side. This pump also cleans up really easily and you can even sterilize it."

Pump Rating:

"This pump is great! The different suction levels made it easy for me to get used to pumping. It literally only took me five minutes to set it up the first time, and now only takes a little more than a minute, which makes it much easier than I expected to use at work. The quick set up of the Purely Yours provides me with sufficient time during my break to pump. The closed style of the pump makes clean-up only necessary for the breast cups, bottles and the little valves. I use a bottle brush to clean the cups but only hand wash valves because the brush will tear them."

Deanne Rogers - Lusk, WY

Pump Rating:

"The Ameda Purely Yours is very easy to assemble and use. Clean up is fairly easy as well except you need to hand wash the white valves; however, I assume this is true with any breast pump. Overall, I am very happy with this pump although the motor is a little noisier than I had expected."

Aimee Simms - Shreveport, LA

Pump Rating:

"I received my pump two days after I ordered it. I was initially nervous about purchasing a breast pump since they are a bit pricey and you cannot try them out. I decided to buy this one after much research because it seemed to be a really good pump, and it was reasonably priced. This pump works great! The first time I used it, I was able to express about 2 ounces from each breast in about 15 minutes. Most of the moms that work at my office used the Medela pumps, but I have been happy with my choice from day one. The collection parts for this pump even came pre assembled, which really helped me to see how everything fits together without having to figure it out with an instruction booklet."

"I have used this breastpump for 2 children now. My first child I pumped exclusively for over 1 year (no formula supplementing)...so this breastpump I used ALOT. No problems at all. Around the 1 yr mark the motor died (I understood though with as much as I used it), but the customer service people replaced it anyway (although the warranty was expired). I am now using the replacement pump three years later with my second child...She is 3 months old now and no problems with the breastpump (even though it was in storage for over 3 years). This is a great breastpump and the customer service is amazing."

Samantha Grace - Fresno, CA

Pump Rating:

"I went with the Ameda Purely Yours based on recommendations from a few friends and I have been pleased with its performance. It's quite simple to operate, as well as keep clean. I got the pump without the bag simply because I figured I wouldn't be traveling with it as I am not working, but I'm sure it would be great for women who might pump at work. All in all I think this is the best value you'll find in a breast pump, considering it is much cheaper than many other brands. 5 Stars!"

Mary-Lynn V. - Flagstaff, AZ

Pump Rating:

"This pump has been really great. It has made my life so much easier since using it. I now have backup bottles in my freezer so my husband and I can enjoy occasional nights out for dinner/movies without having to rush back for feedings. The motor is a little noisy, but not too bad. Still, I would gladly recommend this pump to anyone looking for something that is reasonably priced and works well. Why spend a ton of money on a breast pump when you don't have to?"

"I love this pump- it works great, is powerful, and quiet enough for me to talk on the phone while pumping with no one knowing that is what I am doing. HOWEVER, it started to crack when the motor/base meets the bottle holders. I don't know quite how to describe except that the cracks outline the bottle holders in the shape of a half circle. I returned the first to Ameda and they over nighted an replacement pump and it cracked AGAIN. They are replacing yet another one, which is great, but I am worried that it will happen again."

Kim - Albany, NY

Pump Rating:

"I used a hospital grade breast pump while my duaghter was in the NICU. Once we came home I used the Ameda Breast pump and found it to be better quality than the hospital grade breast pump. It is faster, quieter, and I get more milk expressed with the Ameda versus the hospital breastpump. The accessories that came with the breast pump are great. I have used the car adaptor many times-it makes it easy to pump on those long drives. The only downfall is that the markings on the bottles wear off overtime so you can not tell how much is in them. This is not that big of a deal as I use different bottles for feeding."

Pump Rating:

"For a mom-to-be pregnant with twins, I thought purchasing a good hospital grade pump would probably be needed. I was gunghoe on nursing the girls...not to meantion the savings in formula costs. Well, I lucked out and found this one on ebay brand new in packaging for $130 - good deal, right? At $200, $300, or $400 this would have been a GREAT deal. This pump ROCKS! My girls ended up being born 8 weeks early and this allowed me to pump exclusively until the girls were ready to nurse - 3 months later! No need to rent a pump - this is a good as you can get without owning a huge cumbersome hospital unit. Plus, the car adapter was a must with me. I pumped while driving (not sure what the cops would have thought about that - but mom has to do what she has to do). Then it can take batteries - great if you want to take it to the county fair or a sporting event. Plus, it is totally compatible with all hospital pump parts (made by Ameda - my hospital used ameda). Any way - this pump saved me money on formula (I probably would have given up if my supply dwindled - but this pump kept it up there) and it allowed me to get out of the house. This thing was my best friend for 3 months straight. Highly recommended and easy to use!"

Dawn Perkins - Mobile, AL

Pump Rating:

"Unlike many moms I know, I do not find great ease in pumping. For some reason I struggle. It may have something to do with not being relaxed while performing this art. However, since I started using this pump, I have become a pro (at least in comparison to what I was before). This pump is a dream compared to the pumps I have tried in the past. It works very efficiently. Great buy!"

Jessica Abshire - Spokane, WA

Pump Rating:

"Great Purchase! I've used this pump for both of my children and it works great. The benefits of having this pump are just too many to list. The one thing that I can say I love the best about it is the mobility of the pump. It fits neatly in the backpack, which definitely helps keep things organized. Also, they offer the replacement HygieniKit(spelling?) for your next child, which is a little pricey, but not bad."

Karen Rutherford - Lexington, KY

Pump Rating:

"I chose the Ameda pump with the backpack because it was less expensive than most of its competitors. The suction on this pump is a little weaker than I thought it would be. I'm still able to pump enough for my baby, but I think that I would be able to get more had I spent a little more for a stronger pump. Also the pump motor is kind of loud. I've heard that the pumps with motors that are built in the bags are a lot quieter. I still plan on using this pump, but I'll always wonder if I made the right choice."

Pump Rating:

"I bought this pump because I knew I would only pump 1 time a day (for back-up bottles) and I didn't want to shell out lots of money. It has been a good pump, but if you are well endowed you will need to order larger horns for about $15 because otherwise the pump hurts a bit. The fact that I had to buy extra horns is the only reason I'm giving this pump 4 stars instead of 5."

LuvsViola

Pump Rating:

"I have been using this pump at work for the past 5 months and have been pleased. I had one issue and Ameda was quick to send me another pump. It fit the pump parts I was given in the hospital, so I have 2 sets of horns--a huge bonus. I would definitely buy it again."

Cameron's Mommy - Colorado Springs, CO

Pump Rating:

"Absolutely love this pump!! Without this pump it would have been impossible for me to continue breastfeeding my son. I can't say that there is anything that I don't like about this pump. It is even easy to clean. I love the fact that the tubing never needs to be washed. My sister had a Medela and always complaining about washing the tubing and waiting for it to dry out. The Purely Yours is also really lightweight as well which was a plus for me."

Kayla - Dover, Delaware

Pump Rating:

"The Purely Yours Pump is really easy to carry around in the included bag. I really liked the idea of the built in bottle holders because I'm a bit of a klutz and I was worried that I would spill my precious milk everywhere. The holders help me out a lot. I am still surprised that I haven't had a disastrous spill yet. The only thing that bothered me about this pump was that it was noisier than I would have liked."

"This same pump was $1100-$1300 dollars at practically every place I looked online. The Medela Symphony was $1500-$1700, what a total ripoff! I have been using the Ameda Elite for about 4 months now, and I have to say I am glad I went this route. It works really well and is quite comfortable once you get used to using it. Clean up is fairly simple too. A good friend of mine bought a Medela Pump in Style and has had a few problems with it."

Meredith Larson - New York, NY

Pump Rating:

"I've been using this pump for about 4 months now and I have been very satisfied with its performance. The pump seems to be very well built and it was the best price I found on a hospital grade pump anywhere online. The only thing I regret is not getting the one with the rechargeable battery. Highly Recommended!"
