I just bought the Evenflo Advanced Double Electric, even though, like you, I don't plan to go back to work for at least a year...but I do know that DH would appreciate being able to feed his son too....something we never really did with the other 2, for various reasons. And, like you, the idea of a bit of freedom does appeal to me too!!! I only plan on pumping once a day, max 2 times, so I looked at cheaper pumps (my insurance does not cover them).
I pumped for 10 min the day I got it, suction is quite decent, and I even got maybe half an ounce if colostrum. Not bad for a pump under 130$! If I had more $$, or a need for a workhorse pump, I would have bought the Ameda purely yours or the ultra. Like the Evenflo, they are both a closed system. And they both get great reviews online, for the most part. Let me know what you decide on!!
