I am a full time working mom. i was a little concerned when i had to go back to work and leave my 8 week old breast fed baby. i wasn't sure i was going to be able to keep up with his demand! this pump made my life so much easier with it's automatic settings. with a little practice before i went back to work, i was a pro in no time! I was not only able to keep up with my son, but i was able to always save a little milk that i was able to pump each day for a special occasion when i had to leave my son. it definitely gave me peace of mind to know that i was not going to run out of milk! I did not buy this pump though, i have a friend who is a lactation consultant and she let me borrow the pump! I used this for a whole entire year. These have great motors in them and will not burn out anytime soon. If you're looking to buy a pump and will breastfeed more than one child, this might be a pump for you!
