    Ameda Dual electric is good. Isetan having Offer, $350 U.P $420. Can control the strength of the vacum and the no. of cycles. But really depends how how long you intend to breast feed as Dual pumps are more expensive but save a lot of time. If you only intend to breastfeed for a short period, get a single side. Medela and Avent have good reviews. You can pop by Taka baby fair also. They have demos there.

    i'm using the Avent isis iq uno, the electronic pump. I'm happy with it, it allows you to control the rhythm, speed and strength of the pump and has memory setting. Can simulate baby's suckling. Let down is quite fast.

    i'm using ameda dual electric pump for 2 months plus. love it, it's efficient for me and gentle on my nipples/aerola. was using the medala single electric before in my first month and that hurts badly on my nipples/aerola area. also, medala single electric is very nosiy compared to ameda. ameda is also better in that i can control how hard i want the vacuum to be and how fast the cycle. very personalised [​IMG]

    Hi,
    Just happen to see this thread.

    I am also using Ameda Lactaline Personal. Its a dual electic pump. Have been using the pump for about 4 mths nw. It has serve me well so far. You can get the pump from Robinson ($388), Isetan ($?)and other retailer like Mumsfairy.

    I got mine from Mumsfairy at $399 (comes with the super shielder and pumping pal). They have a booth the the Singapore motherhood fair (4 jun to 7 Jun 09).

    I saw another booth also selling the pump when I am at the fair yesterday. You can check it out [​IMG]

    i also went to the fair but i didnt see ameda on sale. only saw philips booth.

    i am wondering if the breastpump r really that useful, coz i saw a lot of mommies selling their breast pumps here.

    may i know how often do u all utilise breast pumps? is $300+ spent worthwhile?

    which month of ur pregnancy did u buy breast pump?
     
  24. meredith

    meredith Member

    I saw 2 booth selling Ameda pumps, one is mumsfairy, cant remember the name of the other one.

    I have got 2 pumps, avent manual and ameda dual electric. Personally, i like both but back then, i m pumping every 3 hrly so abit tiring to use the manual one.

    Depending how long u intend to breastfeed ur baby, it would be a worth while investment if you intend to breastfeed for long though I must admit that breastfeeding is tiring esp after we return to workforce.

    Cant remember when I bought the pumps, shld be in my third trimester but for the electric pump, i only have it delivered to me ard 36 week so that the warranty starts from there.

    I'm using Ameda too. It's really affordable comparing to other brand. Using Dual Pump is a lot less tiring.

    hi meredith n joanna

    i think i will try to breastfeed as long as i can. if so, do i need the pumps, since i will b on total breastfeeding? ( i am thinkg of being a SAHM)

    where can i get the cheapest of this model? department selling this?

    I have medela PIS advanced, highly recommended if you intend to have more than 1 kid, and you intend to breastfeed for a long time.

    I express exclusively for my twins for 8 mths, circulated the pump among some frens, and I'm now using it for my 3rd child. The pump still works great.
     
  28. meredith

    meredith Member

    I suppose u mean you are latching exclusively? If you are, you might not need a electric pump. You can consider getting a manual pump which is less costly. Just my two cents worth.

    I think Ameda got several models in US but have only seen Ameda Lactaline Dual sold here. Btw, its known as Ameda Purely Yours in US.

    Yup, its retailing at Robinson and Isetan (not sure abt the rest). Hope its helps!

    Hi Mummies there, my wife is letting go her Medela Freestyle. Normal price is almost $900 to $1000. She is letting go at $700. Also, she is giving away the Super Shield from Mum Fairies.

    We bought it this year from First Few Years. I think warranty is still valid.

    The pump is still brand new with the boxes and everything intact.

    If interested, please PM me or sms me at 96525293.

    This pump is suitable for all mummies who travel a lot and wants to have a very mobile pump.

    Hihi,

    would like to check with mummies here on whether have ur experience any soreness or pain in d breasts after pumping?

    wondering what is d cause of it..can anyone share with me? Im using medela electric pump and pump every 3 hours.

    Kalipok - since i've switched my baby to bottle only (because it was a nightmare getting her to accept the bottle) I have to pump 6/5 times a day and I noticed it hurt sometimes after, not the nipples right? the actual boob? I use a lil baby oil and massage at night and just massage a lil after every session, it helped me.
     
  43. yumilicious

    yumilicious Member

    Hihi Marie,

    glad to know tat im not the only one going tru this. yes, the boob hurts,not the nipples. I do not know isit coz i pump too much or too hard, so wanna chk with mummies here. yah, im also like u, pump about 5 to 6 times a day. sometimes it hurts, so i reduce. wondering is the pain normal a not..

    how much do u normally pump each time? u use johnson & johnson baby oil? maybe i'll start to try also. [​IMG] thanks so much for sharing. realli felt so relieved.
     
  44. blendedbaby

    blendedbaby New Member

    Sharing is caring [​IMG]

    Depending, if I get enough sleep I can manage 200ml (together) and a little more but that's usually in the morning or if I've had a nap. If not, I get 150ml and sometimes lower if I'm super tired. She drinks about 150ml on average 6 to 7 times a day so started to give her 1 or 2 bottles of formula as well.

    I use the pigeon baby oil cos that's what I use on her as well but i think anything will do cos you have to wipe off before you pump anyways. Mine got so painful I started feeling feverish while pumping but since massaging it hasn't hurt much especially if I don't wait so long between pumping sessions.
