This worked great. I used it 3x a day for a year and had good results with getting milk out.

Where to begin. I originally chose this pump(through insurance) because of the cost, the closed system and positive reviews. I was so excited to get a good pump. By this point, you're probably glancing at the 1 star I've left for the Purely Yours. I will stand by that rating. I am no newb to pumping. I've been breastfeeding my kids through the years and I have *never* experienced a pump with such poor suction. I've used other pumps, even manual pumps, and never experienced this. It seems the quality, or maybe just quality control for Ameda pumps has gone downhill over the last couple of years. If you look through many of the 4 and 5 star reviews, you find these are all older. If you are given options for pumps, be sure to research brands before you purchase. Ameda is a well respected brand, or was.. I'm not sure how telling this will be for their future. I just know I have connected with many moms who have the PY, and they're all very unhappy with the pump they've received. I shouldn't have to go jump through hoops to get some mediocre suction. That's ridiculous. I can go buy another popular brand and know I can depend on it when I need it.

I am a mother of 3 and this is by far the best pump I have ever used! Its quick, efficient and worth every penny. Custom settings make this pump a great fit for anyone!

If you plan to EP or work full time you are probably better off with Madela. But as a SAHM who pumps occasionally, this works fine. I think it would be fine if you work parttime too. Also, their customer service and warranty are awesome. I had an issue and the FedExd me a new pump overnight for free and gave me new flanges/diaphragms and free shipping to return the other one. I haven't had a problem since. If you will be pumping a lot, the freemies hands free Is awesome.

Like others have said, Ameda's customer service is great but the product is just awful. This pump started out OK; I was filling both bottles (and sometimes more) in less than 15 minutes. However, at around week 5 of pumping the suction started to fail. Over the course of the next week I replaced every single external part: shields, tubes, valves, caps, diaphragms, literally every part. This did nothing.

I called Ameda's customer service and after a lengthy call they shipped me a new motor, power adapter, and valves. I was sure that this would fix the problem but here I am a week later with a second pump that has already failed!! Only the first 2 or 3 draws are able to get any milk out so I have to keep turning the pump on and off to get the required suction. I also have to pop the caps off a dozen or more times per session to get any suction. Even when I'm engorged this pump gets very little milk out! As an added bonus the new pump completely shut off twice, mid-pump, for no reason. I seriously want to cry! For a company that claims to "want to help mothers meet their breastfeeding goals" they sure sell a crappy product.

I'll be going out today to purchase a Medela out of pocket; I wish I hadn't wasted my insurance on the Ameda. Please avoid this product!

I love this pump! Way better than my medela I used with my first. Very easy to use.

I received this pump as a gift and it works fabulously. I'm currently using it for my son and I used or with my daughter as well! I'm a working mom so pumping is imperative. This definitely gets the job done right!

I really wanted to like this pump, and for a while, I did. I was suckered in by the lower price tag of this vs the Medela PISA, and by the promise of a truly closed system. And for the first few months, it worked okay.

But.

I hate the integrated flange/bottle connection piece. I'm sure the idea is that it's one single part to wash, but it's not an easy configuration to wash in any case. Plus, it's more difficult to use with a hands-free pumping bra, and worst of all, if the standard size flange doesn't work well for you, the adapter flanges are useless. I needed a smaller flange (yes, really, as uncommon as that seems to be), and although one exists, it doesn't snap into place. It fits loosely inside the attached flange. So it reduces suction (meaning longer, less effective pumping sessions), and it's almost impossible to see your nipple through the two layers of translucent plastic. I had a very difficult time making sure the flanges were properly centered on my nipple, so I got lots of rubbing.

Oh, those damn silicone diaphragms. Bone-dry and squeaky clean, I still had issues with them not fully expanding EVERY. DAMN. TIME I used the pump. And I pump four times a day! I found myself constantly disconnecting the tubing from the pump body to let them expand - once again meaning longer, less effective pumping sessions.

I kept at it with this pump for two months, and by the end of it I was frustrated, stressed, and just barely keeping up with what my baby ate at day care. Then I finally threw in the towel and rented a hospital pump that used Medela parts. Night and day difference. I'm well aware that the hospital pumps have better motors, but for me the primary benefit was in the parts - easier to clean, more comfortable, no need to repeatedly disconnect to restore suction. If there's a next time, closed system be damned - I'll just buy a Medela.
