You can find an Ameda Purely Yours on CL for around $100 I've seen. All you have to do is buy new tubing and valves which is around $25. Plus you get extra flanges in the pack It's comparable to the Medela hospital pumps. I've used both.
Amanda- Mom to Dylan 11yo, Mikayla 7yo, and Arielle 3yo, and Juliet born April 20, 2012!
Well, the Medela pump that I am renting is over $1000 to buy new. It works well. I also own a pump in style advanced from when my son was born, but it never pumped much. I attribute my pumping success with this baby to the hospital pump. Since I will be pumping 3x/day at work, 5 days a week, I want one that's efficient and speedy. Since this one is working so well, I hate to try and mess with finding another one.
Nothing :duck: Olivia is still technically a ward of the state, so she receives WIC. She has to drink the ultra expensive formula because of her tummy issues, or else I wouldn't bother with the WIC stuff and just buy it myself. If I was paying, it would be close to $150/month!
The pump costs less than what I spend a month on formula. These 2 hoover-like formula snobs are quite costly. I don't think too hard about what we spend since it's a necessity or my head would spin into orbit.
