I know its been done before but thought I'd put the question out there in case there are some new brands or models on the market.
I had a terrible tommee tippee manual pump with dd and want to invest in a good electric one before bub #2 arrives.
Any suggestions and where did you purchase yours from? Noticed big w have started a baby sale so the others can't be far off. Or even better if its cheaper online...

Spectra s2 or a unimom. Both are excellent and affordable. I love my s2 for at home and take the unimom allegro to work as its more compact. Whatever you do, choose a closed system pump. Medela, for example, are very pricey and a good pump BUT they are not closed system which means there is nothing to stop the milk back flowing into the machine which can then contaminate your milk with mould etc

Also spectra and unimom sell switch kits which make them into manual pumps if needed

Avent Isis iq was the best thing for me. So much better than the medela

I have a unimom allegro. Love it and also have a switch kit to change to manual and I can make it a double if I want to.

Thanks ladies, keep em coming! Great advice on the closed pump system. I had heard of some pumps doing that so certainly something I wanted to avoid.

Love my unimom. I've had the medela and I didn't love it.

depends why you want a pump. how often will you use it? why you are using it....there are many reasons to express (to increase supply, you need to leave a young baby regularly, or an older baby, or just the occasional break from bub and you want to leave milk just in case...) and you want a pump to match your needs.
many ABA groups offer advice on pump selection.
