"best pump if you're Facing Low milk supply…"
I first bought the Medela Mini Electric after giving birth to my daughter since the hospitals told me that pumping would increase my milk supply. However the min electric didnt work and i decided to buy this expensive pump as a last resort. After frequent pumping for about 2 weeks, every 2-3 hours, my abundant milk supply finally came in! No more formula!
"Although this pump is expensive it is the best one…"
Although this pump is expensive it is the best one I think you can buy for home use. The dual speed allows a really effective let down and you can change the speed and suction to suit you. It pumps much faster than the Ameda and I have found I can get the job done in half the time of other single speed pumps. It is easy to clean, though the diaphragm bits need care not to loose them. I loved this machine.Read moreLess

I bought this second hand on Ebay. It is very effective indeed and produces lots of milk. I like the way you can adjust the sensitivity, although I still find it makes my nipples very sensitive. Double pumping is possible, but tricky. The whine of it drives us a bit mad and we bury it under a cushion to try and shut it up. It's not very portable as it's large and bulky and I have bought a Medela Swing for taking out and about which is much smaller and lighter. If you have the choice, I would choose a Swing rather than the Pump in Style traveller.Read moreLess
"I went back to fulltime work when my son was…"
I went back to fulltime work when my son was 2.5 months old and I don't think it would have been possible without this pump. Fast, comfortable, quiet, and easy to use, I can highly recommend it. It may seem expensive but it has been worth every penny to enable continuous breastfeeding. The only down side is that it is quite heavy, but the rucksack in which it comes enables you to carry it easily and discreetly in the workplace or elsewhere. The kit also comes with a hand pump and a case for storing milk with an optional cooling element.Read moreLess

"can't recommend this pump enough, particularly for mums going back…"
can't recommend this pump enough, particularly for mums going back to work. i went back to work when my son was 10 weeks but continued to breast feed him until he was 15 months which i doubt i could have done without the pump in style. i'd tried a hand pump beforehand and could barely get any milk, though using a double electric pump meant i could express quickly and effectively. The pump can be plugged in or run on batteries and all comes in a rucksack which is great for carrying to and from work and taking away on trips. the suction strength and speed can be adjusted and a cool bag with room for 4 bottles is contained in the rucksack. expensive but was a godsend for me, and seems to have quite a high resale value on ebay.Read moreLess
"I bought this from a fellow mumsnetter at a greatly…"
I bought this from a fellow mumsnetter at a greatly reduced price so as far as I am concerned it was great value for money! I found it very easy to use with a quiet pump which was extremely effective at achieving a fast letdown. The pump speed and suction is adjustable for comfort which is a great plus point, although I never managed to actually use it hands free. It is a bit bulky to carry around, but the fact that it comes with a cool bag to store expressed milk is a great bonus. I would definitely recommend this breast pump to others.Read moreLess

"After buying this (because I have a premature baby in…"
After buying this (because I have a premature baby in hospital and would be pumping around the clock), I found I ended up returning to my Avent Isis, which was easier to use and produced more milk. I was told the 'Pump-in-Style' was as good as a hospital breast pump but this is not the case. It was harder to achieve let-down, and the breast shield was fiddly to assemble and sterilize. The 'hands-free' thing didn't work for me either; even after buying a special bra I still needed to hold the breast shield in place most of the time. And you are still plugged in. At under half the price, the Avent Isis did a better job for me.Read moreLess
