Avent or Medela Swing?
In two weeks, maternity leave is over for me. Time to go back to work! Now I have quite a dilemma here which I’m sure fellow moms can help me with. I want to buy an electric pump which I can bring to the office to express milk for my preemie baby. I’m currently using an Avent Manual breastpump and it’s been wonderful. However, I can not bring it to me at work because (1) since I do not have that much milk, it can be very tiring to manually pump to get as much as 2 ounces and (2) it is time consuming as well. Now, with the electric pump, I can stay at my desk and work while expressing milk (with the help of a breastmilk pumping bra of course).
I’ve been scouting for the perfect breastpump and I’m down to two choices; either an Avent Electric breast pump or a Medela Swing Electric Pump.
These two are on the same price range. Since an electric pump is quite pricey, I want to make sure that I buy the right one so I won’t go wasting money. Fellow moms, which of the two will you recommend? Basically my concerns are:
1. Which one produces more milk (better let down)
3. User friendliness
4. Quite motor (some pumps have very noisy motors. How embarrassing to officemates!)
I do hope you can help me out here moms! I will appreciate all your feedback! Thanks.
