Hi all, just wondering what is the best manual breastpump.  I saw some pumps at Target but not sure which to get.  Thanks!

I second the Avent Isis. I started with the Medela Harmony and wasn't impressed.

Can't find the Isis anywhere near me...only the Medela Harmony and I don't want to get that since you guys like the Isis.  Where can I get it online?

hated the isis - couldn't squeeze a drop. period.

 

i haven't tried the medela harmony but i tried all sorts of other medela pumps (older styles) and they all worked well. my fav was the ameda single-hand manual pump, it simply worked the best for me. plus it could be used on my Purely Yours electric pump too.

Thanks myk.  Well I am ending up with the Medela Harmony(no offense to you who hate it). I am returning the hospital pump i rented and that is the one they have for sale as a manual from the lactation center so I figure they can help me if I lose parts or whatever.  Thanks again everyone!
