    Default Hospital grade breast pump

    Hi,

    I am looking to buy a hospital grade breast pump. I found the Avent standard one useless so am really looking for a Hospital Grade pump. Has anyone bought one of these, know the exact name of it and could recommend it (or not). Any help would be great. I'm not looking to hire one as I will need it for up to 2 years. Thanks in advance!

    The Medela Symphony is hospital grade, but it would be mega-expensive I imagine. Is there a reason you want to buy a hospital grade one?

    If you want one suitable for frequent use, I can thoroughly recommend the Medela Swing. It's a single electric pump but it's designed for frequent use. I have expressed SOOOOO many times with mine and it's still going strong (I've been expressing multiple times a day for almost a year). If you shop around online, you should be able to get one for about $240 on sale?

    I would stick with a trusted brand whatever you decide. I've never heard of the one in your link.
