Product Overview

The Ameda Purely Yours double electric breast pump has adjustable speed and suction so every mom may be able to find a setting that works for them.

A dual hygiene-kit milk collection system is included with this pump. This kit helps ensure that milk goes in and bacteria stays out of the collection system.

This pump can be operated by battery power or an outlet.

This kit comes with:

  • ​One Purely Yours Pump System with AC adapter
  • One dual Hygiene-kit milk collection system
  • One shoulder carry bag
  • One Cool'N Carry Milk tote 
  • Four collection bottles with lids
  • Three ice packs

PROS

  • This unit gives you the option of pumping one or both breasts at the same time.
  • Being able to control the speed can reduce discomfort for some women.
  • Easy to clean.

CONS

  • This machine is fairly loud which might be a drawback if you are pumping at work.
  • The suction isn’t the best.

Key Features

The adjustable speed and suction is one of this machine’s selling points.

It gives mothers more options when they are pumping, which may help them find a less painful and more successful way to express their milk. Some mothers may find that the slower speed draws out more milk and is less painful too.

This pump is portable and lightweight, meaning you can take it with you on a trip or to work without any fuss.

The dual hygiene-kit milk collection system helps give you peace of mind. 

This kit can take some of the panic out of whether your unit is storing breast milk in a sanitary fashion. The last thing you want to do as a mother is give your child tainted breast milk.

The unit comes with a carry-all tote that can help you transport your baby’s milk.

The kit doesn’t contain BPA or DEHP. 

Many moms are familiar with BPA, but DEHP is another compound moms will want to avoid (source).

Because it is a double pump, you can pump both breasts at the same time, or just do one at a time. 

Moms are always in search of time-saving tips, and pumping both breasts at once will save a few minutes off each pumping session.

Build Quality

For an electric pump, this one is a solid choice for the money.

The suction doesn’t seem to be as strong on this unit as it is on many other electrical pumps, especially after long-term use.

The pumping suction doesn’t always seem uniform between both sides – one side can sometimes seem to pump more strongly than the other.

Keep tinkering with the speed and suction settings to find the correct setting for you.​

Ease of Use

Moms who are worried about emergencies should feel fully prepared with this breast pump.

This is because it can be operated with an outlet, batteries or even a car charger. All three methods are simple to use, and because the unit is so lightweight, it is a cinch to carry it out to the car in case of emergency.

There are no intimidating buttons or strange-looking parts on this pump.

It’s easy to figure out how to operate and simple to clean. When you are a new mom, the last thing you want to do is spend extra time trying to take apart all the pieces of a machine so you can be sure it is thoroughly cleaned.

With this one, you may be able to get a catnap instead of wasting your time with a complicated cleaning process.

It fits any standard sized bottles. 

That means if you have already purchased your bottles, but you are still stumped when it comes to selecting a breast pump, you can still consider this unit.

Who Should Buy This Pump?

For the price, Ameda Purely Yours offers moms a hygienic way to pump their breast milk. That’s important because keeping our babies safe is our number one priority as moms.

The pump is light, portable, easy to clean and it comes with the carry-all tote that will keep all the pieces together.

Factors to Consider Before Buying a Breast Pump

Togetherness is a wonderful thing when it comes to moms and newborns. But sometimes, life interferes with your plans to see your newborn as much as you would like. Things like work, emergencies or medical issues can cause you to be away from your baby at her mealtimes.

You’ll need a good breast pump to stockpile breast milk so your significant other can handle the feedings when you can’t be there.

Not everyone needs to buy an electric breast pump. You can get by with just a manual pump if you plan to pump milk less than once a day.

If you plan on pumping once or more a day however, you should invest in an electric breast pump.

Before you buy your pump, you may want to consider:

  • Price: Don’t spend more than you are comfortable with.
  • Portability: If you plan on taking your pump out of the house, you’ll want something you can pack up easily.
  • How hard it is to clean: With your precious baby around, you won’t want to spend one extra minute cleaning. Make sure your pump is easy to clean.
  • How hard it is to figure out: If solving a Rubik’s Cube is easier than putting your pump together, you’ll want to consider another model.
