I'm using the Medela "Pump In Style Advanced" and find it pretty good. Suction is adjustable by a knob. The pump is also quiet so you can pump rather discreetly should you need to bring it out (pump in office?).

The pump also comes with accessories like battery pack, manual pump converter (converts the pump into a manual pump), cooler bag with ice pack, a nicely designed bag to store the pump with all its accessories.

I used the mini electri pump for both my gals. Bought in 2003, kept, lend it to a fren then took back to use in 2007. Now lend to a fren again and still working. Good. No complains. My best fren during my breast feeding days. Thou i got a colleague who prefer avent (hand pump). For me i dun like avent (hand pump), tiring.

if suction strength weaken over time, just send it back to their office for servicing.

I used both madela pump in style (when in office) and avent pump (at home).

Many of my colleagues also use the madela pump in style. It's good.

i used the mini electric for my first child cos i pumped about 3X a day then.

With my 2nd child, i've more milk and my babe is drinking less than what i have. so i've been pumping very regularly. I find the mini takes a long time to clear 2 breasts.

It seems most of you are recommending pump in style. i shd go to the motherhood fair this week to check out the price. but isn't it bulky?

I bought a Mini Electric but found it too slow and and suction is not powerful enough, so bought a PIS Advanced. Now not breastfeeding already and thinking of selling away to make space for more bb stuff.

Let me know if interested.

Medela Pump in Style Advance (Backpack)
- Condition 9.5/10
- 2 BRAND NEW unopened SoftFit breastshields
- 2 BRAND NEW unopened membranes and tubes
- 1 BRAND NEW unused manual pump
- 1 removable cooler bag with cooling element
- Adapter
- 2 bottle stands
- Local warranty until Oct 2010

Letting go at only $350 (bought at $700). Condition of pump is perfect as I only used it at home for about 3 months. The breastshields, valves and membranes are also unused and still in their original packaging as I reused them from my Mini Electric.
