I have been pumping at work for three months (my little one is 6 months old now) using the Medela Symphony. I just found out that my insurance will buy me either the Medela Freestyle or the Pump In Style Advanced. What are your experiences with either of these pumps, and which one would you recommend? I pump 3-4 times a day at work. Thanks in advance!

I use the Medela freestyle, which I love! It allows me to be hands free so I can work while pumping or do compressions to increase output. Plus, the pump is pretty small, portable, and not too loud (I don't know how loud the others are) and I've been really happy with it! The spare parts are not too expensive, so I can have a set clean and ready to go for the next day and a set ready to be washed at the end of the day.

Wow! how lucky! I'd get the freestyle-- I've heard it's wonderful.
