    Default Manual Vs Electric Breast Pump

    I am currently using a manual pump to express milk, however am finding it rather time consuming for what seems like little reward (i.e. not enough milk to satisfy DD in a single feed).

    My question is have you found an electric pump to be more successful than a manual one and which one do you recommend?

    I rented a Medela Symphony from our local chemist. It's the same pump that they use in hospital and can also double pump to speed things up. It worked really well and I got plenty of milk out, but if you want to rent it for a long while it is an expensive option.

    The medela is by far the best. I also had an electric Tommie tippy, I really didn't like it and it hardly anything out when I used it. I ended up selling ad the lady that bought it from me loved it so i guess it's whatever suits you.
    I also had a cheap pigeon hand
    Pump which I used all the time for about 6 months, that was great

    My sister had a similar thing - rental for madela was almost up so she bought TT one and kicked herself later for not spending the extra on madela.
