It looks really good and it is super-expensive. Just wondering if anyone heard anything or have tried it themselves. I am a SAHM but want a good pump. I used to have an Avent but never got more than a couple ounces out. I sold it thinking we were done with having kids but surprise for me, lol!
Here's a link to it: playtex embrace
I did read the reviews which were good. I may check on ebay though. $300 is a lot of $$$.
I have heard good things about it. However, I'm not sure if I would buy one off ebay. The main reason is it won't have a manufactures warrenty, if something breaks or it has a manufacturer defect it won't be covered.
I just recently bought an ameda purely yours from the hollister sight and it was about $200 for the top of the line and a pair of comfortgel breast pads (free shipping)... This pump has also received great reviews.
I have read both good and not so good reviews of the new Playtex Embrace. It seems like the downfalls have to do with the motor quiting, but most seem to think this one is more comfortable than the Medela. I have not purchased mine yet, but I think that I am leaning toward the Medela Advanced Pump in Style.
Have you looked at the Medela pump in style? If your going to spend 300$, they are old faithful and you will find tons of reviews on them, and seriously they look much more sturdy. The motor is actually in the bag, which comes with a place for ice packstore the milk and a hand pump. And the motor never quits. I used it every 3 hours for 3 months with the boys, and am going to use it with this one too. Check that one out too before you make your decision. And look around. I found mine for $200 from a medical supply company on line. It was 2 years ago though. It was brand new in the box, not used. So do a search before you look on Ebay and go with babiesrus, cause the medela at least has been around long enough you can find them for less. You might find the playtex for less too though if its new that might be tougher.

Still trying to decide if I should spend that kind of $$ when I will be staying at home. I would not buy a used pump, I want one that's sealed for sure! I just thought a good pump would help me to breastfeed longer since it seems like after a few months, I start to want more freedom from bf'ing. If I had a good pump I could continue longer. Not sure what to do.
