Hate my Medela (although I suspect it may have been faulty as everyone else raves about them?)

Need to pump as much as I can before I go back to work.... also I am quite skint so the cheaper the better.

Have you contacted medela? Their customer services are really helpful.
What are you struggling with?

Oh also, some women just can't pump. My friend successfully breastfed for 9 months but couldn't pump a drop. She was gutted. It's no reflection on how much you produce, just some women can't pump for some reason!

I have the Ardo Calypso double pump and it's pretty good. I found it hard to work at the start I was using wrong settings and now I get loads from it. It's also really quiet. Would you consider buying second hand to save you money?

I have the medela swing which I have always found good, but I have also recently been using the Philips avent manual pump which has been good, can pump around 4/5 oz in 25mins it's comfortable to use and good value.

I bought this one, not expecting very much, but it's actually really good.
