Which is the best double breast pump for twins?


Apologies if this has been discussed before but I'm really hoping to breastfeed my twins and would like to find a great pump to up my supply so OH can get involved too.

I'd love to hear if you've found a fab pump or if there are any to avoid? Are some more noisy than others?

I haven't got a clue where to start but the lansinoh affinity has caught my eye.....

Medela double pump hun. Very good, and very quiet. Pricey at 200 but I ended up exclusively expressing so it was well worth it.

I used mine for 3 months, but you could buy it from me at knock down price if you want? You might prefer to buy new pump heads and tubes to go with it, but pump machinery, back pack etc are all as good as new. Let me know x

I agree, medela breast pumps are great! I used my single one which i bought when I had my eldest, i didnt bother buying a double one as they arre really expensive. Theyre really good though.

Sorry i have no answer to this but am interested to see what others have to say. Is a double breast pump imperative for twins? Would a single not do?

Single pump will suffice if you're expressing occasionally, but if like me you end up doing it 6 times a day, then a double is definitely worth investing in. It takes 20mins to pump both sides as opposed to 40, and with twins time is scarce

Having breast fed before, I know how hard it can be to establish, so prepared for the fact that I might not be able to do it. Sure enough expressing was for me far more efficient, and allowed me precious time with my older kids.

cazd why not PM me and let me know what you could afford hun

I had a single medela swing and I loved it. I didnt use it for long tho as my milk supply dried up pretty quick. We just had far too much going on with in and out of hospitals. I would have loved the double though.
