    Default Breast pump

    Unfortunately my nips are too damaged to keep bfing at present - I'm expressing every 4 hours with an avent manual pump and getting plenty of milk BUT my wrist is starting to get sore from the pump - recommendations for electronic pumps pls??? Better to purchase or hire? I may be pumping for some time..

    I like the advent single electric, but others i have spoken to swear by the Medela swing :-) Goodluck!

    I have one of those manual ones but prefer the medela swing I've been loaned. I've heard really good things about unimom ones though and they are currently on special through their website- I think it's $140 for a hospy grade electric pump

    I have the Unimom Allegro which I've found works way better than the Medela Swing which I replaced as the pump died. I've also heard reports of the latter being susceptible to mould contamination.

    Definately get a closed system pump, or you'll be susceptable to mould getting in the milk (open systems allow the milk to back flow to the motor, which cant be cleaned). Unimom is the only non hospital grade one I know of, or any other hospital hire will be closed system.

    I have the allegro pump. It has been great for me, i like that it is portable, I only use it once a day and had it 11 weeks! I had cracked nipples for nearly five weeks and pumping was a great break for my poor nipples! Do what is right for you!
