Worth the higher cost!
As a working mom who breast fed three children, I found this breast pump to best fit all I wanted in a product of this type. Yes, it is a little pricier and harder to find than those other brands you find at all those "Mart" community shopping centers. Believe me when I say it is worth it! This is from a mom who will not step foot in a store without her coupon organizer. I tried the cheaper brands of breast pumps, and only got sore nipples and hungry babies from the experience. Top reason this product works so well: it reacts like a normal baby when it is pumping, giving a nice pull/release action as it works. You can also adjust the speed, which is a godsend when you have just given birth and are sore. Then, as you become more adjusted to breastfeeding, you can vamp up the power for faster pumping. I highly recommend the electric version, even though there is a manual version out there. Especially if you are a working mom, the electric version works faster and requires less energy to get the same results. And as new moms, we need to reserve all the energy we have, I know! There are several versions out there, with numerous attachments. If you are a new mom who works outside the home, even just the single pump will help you out tremedously.
