Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump with Carryall
- Product Review (submitted on August 2, 2009):
I bought this pump before my first child was born, expecting to be able to use it to continue my milk supply once I returned to work. As it happened, I have wound up using it quite a bit prior to my return - I'm still on maternity leave - and am not very happy with it. It works fine for expressing milk, but the pull of the suction is quite uncomfortable for me. I find it harsh on my nipples, and it also feels awkward to pump both breasts simultaneously (the suction is significantly reduced if you only do one at once). In general, I am uncomfortable using it and find that I tend to avoid pumping because of that. I have recently purchased an Avent ISIS hand pump and am MUCH happier with it.
In addition, even with the carry all bag, the Ameda is heavy and bulky. It's hard to imagine carrying it into the office every day!
On the plus side, it is pretty easy to clean and doesn't have as many parts as the ISIS.
