Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump with Carryall
- Product Review (submitted on July 30, 2009):
I've never written a review for anything before, but I just felt compelled to let those of you who are looking into buying a breastpump know that THIS IS IT! I have purchased 2 pumps before and have had not-so-satisfactory results. My first pump was the Evenflo Electric and that poor pump stopped "sucking" after only a week of use. (Evenflo should stick to making bottles!) After that I was told to purchase the Avent Isis, which I did absolutely love. My son was 3 months old at the time and I was staying at home fulltime. It was okay for the time being but I needed something a little more powerful for when I started going back to school fulltime. When I decided it was time to buy a double electric pump, I was reading almost ALL of the reviews online, trying to find the best one. I'm sooo happy I decided to go with this pump. It is absolutely wonderful!
The pump is quiet, it sounds kind of like a copy machine.
It is FAST. I am able to pump about 6-8 oz in less than 15 minutes!!
It is very comfortable. I keep the vaccuum setting in the middle and the cycle setting at the highest at first, and then turn it all the way down low after let-down and it feels just like second nature.
I did have a little trouble getting used to the suction at first. It is different than the Avent pump and there are so many settings to play around with. I'd say it took me about a week to find the settings that worked for me and to get the let-down thing going but once I did, it was as if the milk just flowed right in the bottles!
There's nothing I don't like about the Ameda. The parts are easy to clean and put together. The tote bag is really cute and so is the cooler. I actually look forward to pumping! and I'm sure you will too if you go with this one!
