    Default Seeking to purchase Double breast pump - any recomendations?

    I'm after a Double breast pump. At the moment I'm exclusively pumping up to 8 times a day using the Medela Symphony. This is a rented unit & it looks like I'm going to need to pump longer than I thought, so wanting to purchase my own.

    I'm considering a Medela Freestyle @ $510. I like that its portable, so I can take it with me when I'm out rather than having to use the manual pump.

    I have also heard if Unimom but I don't know anything about it.

    Does anyone have any feedback in the Freestyle, good or bad?

    Does it stand up to long term frequent use?

    Thanks

    What is the unimom pump called? And where can you get them from?

    I second the Unimom pumps. You can get the Forte, which is a hospital grade pump, or the Allegro, which is portable. They're much cheaper than the other brands so I ended up getting both! I use the Forte at home and take the Allegro to work with me. They're both great and you can double pump with both of them, though I think you have to buy a second breast shield to double pump with the Allegro (I just used the second shield from the Forte kit because they're interchangeable).

    They are selling the Allegro# with a bonus extra shield at the moment.
