Ameda purely yours breast pump

Postby Greystreet » Thu Mar 14, 2013 4:30 pm

This breast pump and a playtex one are the only ones my insurance company covers, I'm pretty sure based on reviews I have read so far that I am going with the Ameda, but I did want some insight from anyone on here who might have some experience with this brand. So far some reviews for it are pretty awful so I'm looking to what y'all think! Thank you!!!

I don't have one, but I have heard great things about the Ameda Purely Yours. It's supposed to be equal to or better than the Medelas! I have a Medela myself, and it works great.

Hopefully someone who used an Ameda can provide you with more insight! :)

I loved my Ameda. Used it over a year. Plus the customer service is great, they will even help you with general pumping questions. I packed it up a few weeks ago and will use it with the next baby.

Mrsg- I have heard the same thing that it's comparable but yet more affordable to the Medela, all of my friends have the medela so they were pretty bias about me getting that brand, but I'm taking what I can get covered!!

Jess-Thank you for your opinion! I am so new to all of this and it's reassuring to hear from someone on here that they liked theirs!!

I have the Ameda purely yours and LOVE it!!! I have been using it for about 4 1/2 months (rented a hospital grade pump before that) and I EP so I use mine A LOT!! And so far (knock on wood here) no problems!!! And I have the "backpack" one since I need to take it with me and I have to say its easy to travel with and use away from home.......

This is the pump I've been using. I pumped til my first son was 1 and until my daughter was 1 and now I've been pumping for the past couple months for my second son. I actually have 2 and alternate between them, one at work and one at home. It's been a great pump, no complaints from me!
