The pump gives you the option to pump either one breast at a time or both breasts at once. The pump starts off with a special two-minute "let down" cycle, which is supposed to mimic a baby's natural sucking action when she first latches on (faster, shorter sucks). After two minutes, this automatically changes over to the "expression" cycle (longer, slower sucks), but if your milk lets down sooner, you can manually change the cycles with the push of a button. You can also control the strength of the pump using a knob - a very nice feature because you can really customize the sucking strength to your exact needs and you can adjust it with the turn of a knob at any time during your session. The design of the pump is very simple - it takes almost no time to set up and break down. The Pump in Style comes with an A/C adaptor and a battery pack (batteries not included) that takes *TEN* AA batteries. If you're planning on using the pump in a car, you can purchase a car adaptor separately. One of the nicest features of the Advanced is that the pump is housed in its own little black case that comes completely out of the backpack (unlike the original Pump in Style, with a battery that couldn't come out of the bag); this allows you to leave the pump wherever you'll be using it (ex. at work) and only take the bottles or bags of expressed milk back and forth in the cooler. Since the majority of the weight of the Pump in Style is in the pump itself, this is a wonderful feature.Read more ›
Be sure to pay attention to the dates on the reviews that you read here. Prior to 2007, the actual pump could be removed from the bag. Not so on new pumps. They figured out that they could charge extra for that feature and now you have to buy the more expensive Metro bag set up. It's a shame because that was a really great feature. Also, the current version of this product no longer includes a manual pump. The old manual pump that they used to include was miserable to use, so this isn't a big loss. But you should go ahead and buy a Medela Harmony manual pump to keep with you for emergencies. The Harmony is a fabulous little pump, so it's definitely worth it -- if anything ever goes wrong, you will be so glad that you have it.
If this is your first baby or your first time pumping, PLEASE take this to the hospital with you and have the lactation consultant walk you through using it. It seems like a no-brainer, but you really do need a little guidance on one or two things. Just for an example, the pump comes with size medium shields. Most women end up needing the large shields. An LC can fit you properly. And as an added bonus, most LCs will give you extras, like a second set of valves and connectors, extra tubing, and a few bottles of lanolin. Don't be shy about asking for help while you're still in the hospital -- once you get home, it is harder to get.Read more ›
1) Discreet, convenient
2) Pumping 2 at once and electric is really convenient. I purchased one of the handsfree kits (really just a tube top with holes around the nipples) and I can continue to work at my desk while pumping. (Door closed, of course).
3) Easy to purchase parts for. This is really important. I can go to my local Target and get parts for this. It is not so easy with some of the more obscure brands.
1) Motor seemed to wear out some after about 6 months of daily use. It still pumps, but I have to turn the power higher to get the same amount of voltage. I don't feel that I could use this for a second child. It's not only a "one person" product as described in the manual, I think it's meant to be a "one baby" product as well.
2) Battery-operated feature doesn't work well at all. It requires 8 AA batteries, and loses power by the end of the first session. For pumping on the road I recommend the car charger (sold separately).
I ended up purchasing an Avent Isis hand pump to supplement this one. It is easier to use when I am home and I actually get just as much milk from one breast with the Avent as I do with this, in about the same amount of time. The difference is that I can strap the Medela on and keep working. If I didn't have the handsfree kit it would be very inconvenient to use the double pumping feature.
