MissesRootbeer:I love my Lansinoh Double Electric (same as Ameda Purely Yours). It's a closed system with very few parts to wash. Also much cheaper than others out there.
I love this one too. I really like not being confined to carrying a certain bag. It is small enough to fit just about anywhere. I would hate to have to leave the house in the morning with 3 bags instead of my two. One for DD and one for me... LOVE IT
To be fair the Ameda does not tie you to a particular bag either!
And I have never seen evidence for the claim the Lansinoh is the same. Does it also have FDA approval like the Ameda? Where?
The Ameda is the only 1 I know of that has FDA approval as a closed system pump, which means germs and microbial amounts of milk can't fester in the motor (gross!). The medela is just a germ factory.
I used the Ameda for a year or more, it was great. The customer service was great too. I wouldn't buy anything else.
