AVENT pump?? — The Bump

AVENT pump??

I'm a SAHM and looking to get an electric pump so someone else can feed the LO occasionally. I have a Medela Harmony manual, but it takes forever and my hands cramp up.

I know Medela is highly regarded, but they're also above my budget unless I save up for a while... And Amazon Mom has a 30% off deal on AVENT pumps right now, which makes it a viable option if they're any good.

Are the AVENT pumps worth it at all, or should I just save up for the Medela?

Re: AVENT pump??

  • I have the Avent duo and I love it (I have never used a medela, so I can't compare).  I like that it is a closed system, meaning no tubing to clean.  I've only had to replace the valves once.  I pump 4x a day, if that makes a difference.
    From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere!

    Ha - all of this exactly!  I'm an EP'er for 5+ months, and I love my Avent dual electric.  They have excellent customer service also.
