    I've brought the Unimom one, haven't used it yet but I liked it cause it was a closed system and converts to a double pump if u want it to be

    Double pump is very very handy, but the frustrating thing is different pumps are good for different women!

    I loved my ameda purely yours, but I recently tried some new import models for a friend and they were even better! Quiet motors, longer tubes, better settings, one was even rechargable (automatically charged while plugged into power). There are a few different reviews here, and a few new types of pumps. Check out the Spectra DEW hospital grade pump. You can hire it for $50 a month too, so that might be an option if wanting to see if it suits you.

    I also got a medela swing (bought it overseas as they are really expensive here) and it was great (had been recommended by several friends who are midwives) and then upgraded to the medela freestyle (double, handsfree) as I wasn't able to bf and had to solely express. Great pumps, hospitals use (hospital grade) ones.

    Am I the only one that thought ameda and spectra were infinitely better than medela?

    I haven't tried the ameda so can't say

    I was happily getting 200-250mls of breastmilk in 15-20 mins, on my lunch break at work, with my medela. Is the Ameda fast?

    I bought the medela swing after having the avent with two previous kids...

    And because I bought it 2nd hand I tested it... Sorry tmi but it actually expressed some colostrum out!!!

    I bought mine off eBay for $100... I cleaned and sterilized it and I'm in love !!!
