I bought a spectra s1 but Bub isn't due for 6 weeks so I don't have any personal experience as yet. I'm prepared to pump a lot, maybe even exclusively if breast feeding doesn't work for us so I wanted a good pump. I had read a lot of reviews including many on a Facebook breastfeeding page and many people were raving about the spectral mainly that they were quiet, efficient compared to using a Medela (for those that have used both) and the closed system.

I hired a hospital grade Medela double pump - Symphony i think it was. I had a smaller Medela, but it just wasn't cutting it for me. Used the smaller one when going out, but the big one at home. Didn't try the Spectra, but have heard good things about them.
Good luck ☺

I use a manual pump here and there but my cousin told me today that her son wouldn't latch and had reflux and she hired the medela one from a chemist and it was $30 a week.
She had a short supply but said it was fantastic.
She breastfed for 4 weeks and was severely damaged but then the medela pump got her through another 6-8 weeks.
I have no real information that could influence your purchase but it was only today that she said how great it was!

I would stick with the Medela if you liked it. Buying another pump is extra $ you could use for other things.
