    Default Lets talk pumps!

    Hi Ladies,

    Can I please have your recommendations for a good pump?

    With my son I had an avent manual and it was horrible!

    Spectra
    Worth every cent
    I've got the S2 it's $299 but paid $239 on sale in December. A friend did a breastfeeding class last week in hospital and they are even recommending spectra

    I bought a medela swing second hand as a backup to bf'ing but used it a lot as DS wouldn't latch. It was $80 and worth every cent. I bought new tubing etc off eBay which was much cheaper than any chemist. I also converted it to a double with tubing. I highly recommend that whatever you get, you get a double pumper. Much less stuffing around and I got a lot more milk that way...

    Hi. I only have one bub (10mo) and in the early days I had a manual too. Thought it was fantastic till it stopped working. Lol
    Then I rang the BF hotline and was recommended a few. I ended up getting a miomee single electric pump for $40 (RRP approx 200). It was bran new the owner just got given it for baby shower and had already owned one. Mind you my milk was REALLY easy to come through, leaking was an issue. Haha.
    But I find it works great for me. I would recommend it.

    Spectra s1! I'm actually using it right now.

    I had a medela freestyle last baby but spectra is wayyyy better

    I've been using the spectra s2 as my friend has given it to us to borrow. I wish we had the s1 as it would be great to have a battery operated when for when we are out instead of needing to find a power supply.

    ETA it's a great pump though!!

    Another vote for the spectra (I have the S1). It's a great pump, closed system, and if you sign up to the mailing list, they often have 20% off sales. I paid less for my spectra S1 double pump than I did for my medela swing single pump. That being said, my medela did serve me well - but the spectra is better.

    I bought a spectra s2 on the recommendation of the ladies on here. Bub isn't here yet so I haven't used it yet.
    I messaged Spectra on Facebook to ask if they had any sales coming up and they said they had one the next month, but gave me a 10% off code if I needed it more urgently. So if you do need it before they have a special, see if they'll give you a discount code :-)

    Love spectra! I have an s2 and also an s9 plus which has been so much lighter to take to and from work as that's the only time I use it. Can't fault them at all.
