a hospital grade breast pump? I'm having a hard time pumping with Lansinoh that I got at walmart, and I've heard the hospital ones are so much better. I ask because in order to rent one, I'll have to travel 2 hours to the nearest hospital that rents them out.
Medela pumps in general are better than any others. I have a pump in style at home that works well. I pump once a day from one side and then occasionally an extra time if I am going to be leaving her for a feeding. I work at a hospital and we have an employee pump room that has a symphony in it so I use that instead of bringing my PIS. I think they symphony works a little better...especially because I pump both sides at the same time at work.
I would say yes it is definately worth the drive to get a symphony.
I agree, the hospital grades ones are great, but which Lansinoh pump are you using? If you need the pump for a while, you may want to look into purchasing a Medela Pump In Style, but I would need to know what pump you're currently using before making the suggestion.
I used a Medela (not Symphony though) when I was in the hospital and rented an Ameda Hospital Grade for 8 weeks I HATED the Ameda I went out and bought a Medela Pump In Style Advanced and it was 1000x better than the Ameda I had been renting.
I personally got better output with my bought Medela than the rented Ameda
I think it's worth it if you are going to use it for a good long while and possibly with another baby to go ahead and purchase a good quality pump. I had an Ameda Purely Yours and it worked well. I wish I had a large chunk o' change and I would've gotten a Medela Freestyle. I had a frie nd who has one and LOVED it.
