Hi All, I am a newbie here writing my 1st post. I am now enjoying my 2nd month maternity after my 2nd baby.
Expensive pumps doesn't mean good.. .
Personally, I had used Medela PIS for my 1st child and Ameda for my 2nd; and i prefer the latter because it did not cause pain and sore / cracked nipples. I find it depends on shape/size of individual's nipples... whether suitable for the pump funnel. The brand does not affect the milk supply.. cos I have friends using Avent or Ameda and producing sufficient supply for few months consumption in storage. There are some factors that contribute to low milk supply.. like milk duct, stress, fluid intake etc...
Luckily both the pumps were borrowed from my sisters.. and I only used them for couple of months. Sad to say, my perserverance was not good.. and gave up cos very tired with nite feeds and partly laziness :P. Hence, I really salute to mummies who BF for many months.. or even years!
BTW, I have a set of pre-loved Medela duo pump.. could sell cheap to any mummies who is interested (hp: 98755553). You could replace some parts if hygiene is a concern.
