With Elias, I breastfed/pumped for almost 11 months. I used the Medela Pump in Style every day. Overall, I was very happy with the pump, except that occasionally the tubing would get condensation in it. I never could get it out, despite sterilizing it. I found this to be a bit annoying and was planning on replacing all the tubing for this time around.
But, I now have something better.
Lansinoh sent me their new Affinity Double Breast Pump to review and it looks amazing.
Here are the things that look really great about it:
- The price: My Medela pump was about $275. The Lansinoh Affinity is only $135, and it is just as good (as best as I can tell). Sure it doesn’t come with a bag and a little cooler, but I hardly think either of those items are worth doubling the price.
- It has a timer on it – I love that! Particularly since I will be pumping at work, it is nice that the time will be right there.
- The flanges have a soft rim.
- The tubing is guaranteed to prevent milk back-up into the tubing.
In the past six months, I have registered with three girlfriends expecting their first babies – and every one of them registered for this pump over the Medela after we chatted about the two side by side.
So if you need a breast pump, I would check this one out.
Did you use a breast pump? Which one? What did you like/dislike?
