firstname.lastname@example.org (364.6 days ago) Also my lactation specialist said its not necessary to wash with soap and water in between every pump I used the pump wipes at first super expensive then switched to paci wipes. Also i used regular old paper towels shen i ran out. I would pull all the parts off/apart and make sure I got all the milk wiped off then would wash it when i got home. I sterilized with the Medela steam bags a couple times a week. Worked like a charm.

lilyxox19 (365.6 days ago) I use the medela pump in style and I have been exclussively pumping for 7 months.
ajoke (365.8 days ago) With my 3rd I pumped for a year and was full time at work for 7 of those months. I used ameda electric double pump in style 179.00 but switched to a single manual avent for the last 5 months and had TERRIFIC!!!! result with the avent. I got more milk with the manual in the same smount of time with the electric. It cost me 40.00 brand new and picked up a second for 2.00, yes two, dollars at a kids consignment store. Now with my 4th i still just use the manual.
jamie86 (366.8 days ago) I bought the medela pump in style from a friend that had only used it a couple times and it`s an awesome pump. I replaced most of the parts and sterlized the ones I didn`t replace. My daughter refused a bottle so I didn`t get to use it very much but it came in handy when I needed it.
angie2008 (366.8 days ago) I had the pump in style and LOVED it! Used it for both kids for a total of about 16 months. I would go with the used one because you can sterilize the parts that come in contact with any milk or you can buy the replacement parts for fairly cheap. Good luck and congrats!!
Waiting for Roland (366.9 days ago) Whatever you get, I would suggest fully changeable parts in terms of what gets milk on it or multipe pumps if you work a job that ooes not have a flexible schedule. I had 20 minutes to pump and twenty minutes only each time (3X a day for a ten hour day) and I felt I would have been better off not having to both pump and clean the danged pump all in twenty minutes. I got multiple cheap pumps and washed them at home. A good pump with changeable parts might be a better option, I just went with what I could get my hands on at the time, I think.
