Pump It Up, The First Years miPump Deluxe Double

Pump It Up

A friend of mine had a love-hate relationship with her breast pump. She loved that it allowed her to provide her son with breastmilk while she was out, but hated feeling like a cow every time she was hooked up to it. You'll be hard-pressed to find a woman who is fond of her device as they are usually too loud, heavy or inefficient. With 80 percent of new mothers attempting to breastfeed their lil ones, it's a wonder that there aren't more tolerable items on the market.

The First Years miPump Deluxe Double ($100) is the latest to enter the fray and billing itself as the answer to nursing mommas' demands. Weighing in 60 percent lighter than its competitors, but providing the same power as pumps twice its size, the miPump offers moms both electric and battery power. It's also very quiet, so the whole world doesn't have to know that you are pumping in the bathroom stall next door.

To see what a kit includes,


Though available in three models, the Deluxe Double, the model with the most bells and whistles, comes with two BPA-free Breastflow Bottles, the only bottle system that requires suction and compression — the same motions as breastfeeding - easing the transition from breast to bottle and back again. The kit also comes with flexi-fit breast shields, bottle adapters, a cooler bag with ice packs and a rather stylish tote for carrying it all.

MissSushi, there's bras that allow for hands-free. I just put the bottles on my knees so I could read while pumping. Also, there's one called a Whisper Wear that's not big cones and bottles, it's a bra insert and tubing that you put right into your regular bra, then the bottles are attached to the tubes. That one has very mixed reviews though, people either love it or hate it, no in-between. I agree that the Pump in Style is more than worth the price.

The Medela pumps are worth the price. This one is not worth it.

I didn't mind pumping so much as the time it took to do it and having to hold it on with both hands. I didnt have cable television at the time, so i had to sit there holding it bored to death for however long i pumped. If i have another baby, ill probably look into a band of some sort

The reviews don't look good.

Mine wasn't heavy or loud and I didn't feel like a cow, I just hated it. And it's impossible to get as much milk with a pump, so it's almost inevitable that supply is going to suffer. When I was laid off I was so thrilled that it meant I wouldn't have to pump anymore. *lol* The price on this one's great, I'm off to see some reviews on how it does. You'd never catch me pumping in a bathroom stall though. Luckily in California, law states that employers have to find a suitable private pumping room that's NOT a bathroom, even if it means a boss giving up their office for each session.
