what parents are saying
I love this breast pump! It was a little high prices, but it's worth every penny! (Aug 21, 2014)
This is far-and-away the favorite among weeSpring moms. It's a workhorse: reliable, easy-to-use, and effective. Or as one mom put it, "This is the Volvo station wagon of breast pumps; it may be a bit big and heavy, but it always works when you need it." It comes built into its own bag, with space for all the requisite pump parts and a little cooler to keep milk fresh. Be sure to call your insurance company--it might be free!
The Catch: It is large, which can make commuting and/or traveling with it cumbersome.
I exclusively pumped for 10 months with my first with this pump and I'm doing so again with my second kiddo. Pump parts are easy to clean and, if I need replacement parts, I can find them at Target.

Go to breast pump. Has enough power to keep supply up yet comfortable. Can use a battery pack to make portable (though you loose a bit of power). Parts are easily found and decent price. Holds up!

It is frustrating using the battery pack and comber some with lots of cords. I wish it came with the bra to be able to use hands free. I found the spectra portable pump to be more effective.

I have two of these, one for upstairs and one for down. I exclusively pump and have not had any complaints. It lasted through 7 months of pumping with my first and I am on month 4 with #2.

I work at a hospital and used the hospital grade pump but the PISA expressed more milk, even though it is louder. Easy to use and I liked the cooler bag. My milk stayed cold for over 10 hours.

I didn't love or hate this pump; it was just ok. It started out working well, but as I used it more, I seemed to get less milk when pumping. I switched to a different pump for my next little one.

I loved this about as much as you can love any breast pump. I actually had the tote bag style that I kept at work and the smaller version (not part of a bag) for home and travel, which I preferred.

It is but if you're going to be exclusively pumping, I'd look into the smaller one that is more portable. I forget the style but I remembered thinking it might have been nice to not be limited to a wall outlet. Not sure if you compromise power. This one will do the trick though!
I had to pump for the first four months (my son was a premie and had to be on a combo of breastmilk and formula until he was 4 months old) and then I pumped at work until he was a year. I used this pump at work but didn't like it nearly as much as the hospital grade one that I rented. It's powerful enough but the hospital grade ones are even stronger. I also had some supply issues though.
