Do you have any you recommend?
Let me tell you if you are a first time mum, avoid getting ones with so many ****** pieces
my first time I bought a stupid tommee tippee one and it was the most useless device on the planet.

This time I have a medela swing pump, I hear great things about it

Do you have any pumps you recommend or pumps you should avoid by bad experience?

I had Medula Pump in style. Although I have to spend almost 85 $ to replace the parts since my last baby was born 4.5 years ago. THe tubes and parts add up. But worth it i hope.

I have the medela pump in style -- before you buy replacement parts check with your hospital BC some of them have the replacement kits if you pump in the hospital so you can have your own on their loaner pumps. That is how we replaced all of our parts for NOTHING -- in the long run you pay for it all since a q-tip is a buck -- lol
Good Luck
April

I just used the Medela Harmony Manual Breast Pump.
I had purchased the electric one but I just used it for spare parts.
I preferred to pump based on my own timing and found the electric ones too slow and too loud.
I pumped exclusively at work (3 times per day) so I wanted something small and discreet.
I plan on doing the same thing again with this baby so I should look into buying replacement parts. I really did wear that thing out! LOL

I had the Medela Pump in Style and i loved it but this time I'm thinking of getting the Ameda Purely Yours. It will come down to what my insurance will cover.

I have the Medela Freestyle. I love it and have used it for the last two kiddos. With DS1 I had a hospital grade one that I rented. That thing was horrible. It was HUGE and I really think that a Medela one would've been better.

I'm a FTM bfer/pumper so I don't have any experience but I did buy the Medela Harmony manual one because I heard that for a manual it is the best. Since I don't plan on pumping often I figured I would go this route. After my friend weans her daughter in August she is going to let me use her Medela Pump in Style which she loves.

I had gotten an Ameda based on recommendations from JM and it worked really well! I was an exclusive pumper for 6 months and didn't have any issues.
