    I have the avent electric pump and I liked it. Easy to use and no problems. I also have the avent bottles and sterilizer.

    Default Breast pump- avent, Medela or other?

    Last time I used a medela swing which was good but this time (DS2 is 4 wks old), I brought a unimom allegro and its even better. All bits n pieces fit into my avent microwave sterilizer and most bottles will fit the pump. You cZn buy an attachment do larger opening bottles like avent can attach

    I have the tommy tippee closer to nature was good, but after reading about open vs closed systems I will be getting a closed system. I have been looking at the amadala (sp?) and unimom.

    I'd rather have bottles that didn't match then risk getting an open system personally.

    Just bought the avent single electric - had a manual one years ago and it was great.

    ^^^^this. I have a Unimom & love it, it minics the natural sucking motion of bub & works with the natural let down plus it's half the price of a Medela. There was a thread a few months back about open & closed pumps, definitely read it as it was a huge eye opener to me & I would never use an open system!!!!!
