Purely Yours Breast Pump Review


The Purely Yours Breast Pump by Ameda

The three Purely Yours breast pump models have received a lot of attention lately.  They are the leader when it comes to breast pumps that insurance companies will cover.  The lower cost of these breast pumps is intriguing too.  Here are the specs on the models:

Is Purely Yours the Best Electric Breast Pump?

I cannot in good conscience recommend the standard Purely Yours model (the one on the far left column) to anyone due to the unreliability and the inevitability that you will have to buy another pump anyway.  You are better off going with a more reliable manual pump.  As for the other two…

Most ladies are looking into the Purely Yours breast pumps because either insurance companies will pay for it or because they are considerably less expensive.  Those are great reasons to with the Purely Yours Express or the Purely Yours Ultra, which are reliable (just get some earplugs).

Are they as reliable as the Medela breast pumps? No, but the biggest issues surround the need for replacement flanges and valves more quickly than Medela’s.  While it is a nuisance, those are not expensive.  One plus to the Purely Yours models over other less expensive models is the availability of replacement parts.  You can order Purely Yours replacement parts here.  If you are going to buy this pump, I would go ahead and order replacement flanges and valves since they do tend to wear quickly.
