I think this is very individual. Some women find more success with certain pumps vs other pumps. It's kind of like wearing shoes. A pair of shoes that are comfortable for me may give you blisters. Generally, the two brands I hear about most are Medela and Ameda. I have both but have never used the Ameda as it is second hand from a friend and that's generally not recommended.

Rule of thumb is that hospital grade pumps are the absolute best. You can rent hospital pumps most of the time from your local hospital.

I HATED the electric pumps I used at the hospital but that was just my own opinion. I have Nuk's manual Jolie pump and I absolutely love it! Each to their own though of course. I found for me personally the manual pump was easier and more comfortable to use instead of the electric.

Good question. I'll look it to it and get back to this thread.

I used my medela swing for 15m with my son before it gave up, and that was second hand from my aunty so lasted a while! I've bought another one for this baby.

I had the Lansinoh breast pump and it was great. I definitely recommend it
