I want to buy a new breastpump for this baby. With my first one I ended up with a second hand medela breastpump and I never felt comfortable with the matter it was a second hand. So I decided to invest in a brand new breastpump and I'm looking for option. I was convinced that I wanted the Medela pump in a style- double electric but now with the Medela Sonata out I'm not sure.
I have a couple of factors to consider:
-This is probably my last baby
-I'm planning to breastfeed for a year
-Last time I exclusive nurse my baby for 13 months and I barely use my breastpump but this time I want to be able to pass a little of responsibility to DH and take breaks.
-I want to store my breastmilk (I failed in this last time and struggled every time I have to let my baby alone with DH)
What do you think are my best options? Have you heard any reviews about the Sonata? Did you like other brand?
I'm scared to try a different brand because health insurance gave me an Evenflo single electric breastpump and was the worse!! I ended up throwing the machine in the trash can and buying a medela manual breastpump because if was an emergency.
Is the performance of your machine is good? You never had any issue?
I came on to ask the same question. I lent my manual Tommee Tippee to someone, and I have the feeling that they have replaced it for whatever reason with a second hand one. The box has a £4 price tag...
The TT was ok but I'm sure there is better but all my bottles were TT so it makes it easier. The manual is in Asda for £15 electric on amazon for £35.
I liked my tommee tippee closer to nature electric one. But then I was fine with a medela one I hired too
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
