I do not know anyone personally who uses it, but I have heard good things and hospital grade pumps are usually good. I think you will like it.

That said, it sounds like you only plan to pump occasionally, and a less expensive one would probably suffice. I pumped 3x a day working full time and you need a workhorse for that, I actually went through a couple of pumps in the 18 months I worked and pumped. Now I use a manual pump for the occasional pumping needs.

I have the Spectra S2 and LOVE it. I had a Medela PIS before with my first, and the Spectra was light years better for me. I was able to get mine through insurance, but I would have paid the money easily. It was/is awesome!

Thank you for the reassurance I definitely want to try this breastpump. Did you have any problem? I read that I can buy and adapter and use all my medela accessories.

Did you notice much of a difference between them?
The medala one was more powerful and a double so I got done quicker but if anything I got more milk using the tommee tippee. I'm gutted as I just realised I chucked mine as it came back from my sil really discoloured. Don't really want to fork out for a new one so hoping to just exclusively bf and not need one
Broody thanks very much for your reply's. I took the plunge and got the TT electric from Amazon at 35, used it for the first time this morning. I managed to fill a 150ml bottle in about 10 mins. It is a much better pump than the manual one that I used last time.
