Are you looking for the best breast pump to either rent or purchase? As a new mum, breastfeeding the right way will be one of your top priorities. You might be a little nervous and that’s to be expected, particularly if this is your first time. You want to provide the best solution to ensure that your baby gets the greatest nutritional value from breastfeeding.
So, you’ll be thinking about how easy a system is to use, how much you can produce, hygiene levels and how comfortable these products are. We may be a little biased but we think that the Ameda range are the best breast pumps for new mothers both at home and in the maternity unit. Here at O’Flynn Medical we only sell the highest quality of items and this is why we think these two products can compete for the title of the best breast pump.
The Ameda Elite Breast Pump
Top of the range and hospital-grade, this pump is designed to help mothers achieve a greater level of milk flow. At the same time, the system is intended to ensure that pumping remains safe and efficient. It also allows mums to store milk who are unable to nurse directly due to a busy work schedule or a variety of other reasons.
While this product is designed for hospitals you also can rent it with us. It’s suitable for both single and double pumping. If you are single pumping, you can massage one breast while milking with the other. Some mums find this both comfortable and effective.
The product also provides dual adjustability. As such, it is possible to completely customise settings to ensure that you get the perfect response for your body. It has a high vacuum too as well as a cycle rate of 30-60pcm. This product only weighs 6.4 lbs and as such, it can be moved wherever you need it. So, you won’t have to worry about keeping it in one room of your home. This provides a great level of flexibility. When purchased the item does provide a two-year warranty which should give you the peace of mind you require if you invest in this product.
There is great practical benefits too. For instance, this item comes with dual bottle holders, so you can easily fill up the bottles that you need. It also has a closed system which protects the milk from contaminants and the tubing stays dry and clean. As such, you don’t need to clean the tubing to keep the milk safe.
In terms of set up, you should first turn the cycles to the right which will put them on the max. Once the milk starts to flow, you can try different settings but we suggest that you start at the halfway point and then adjust from there.
Why Choose This Ameda Elite Breast Pump?
If you’re looking for the highest quality of breast pump that is available on the market, this one is for you. It provides a massive range of customisation and ensures that you can get the most efficient solution. You won’t need to worry about whether or not you are getting the most from your milk supply. It’s also ideal if you know you are dealing with specific issues with nursing and provides medical level support.
Ameda Finesse Breast Pump
We think this is another great candidate for the best breast pump. One of the reasons why we think this might be the best breast pump for you is that it has actually been designed for home use but unlike other options on the market, it still includes hospital technology. So, if you choose to purchase this product, you’re not going to be missing out on a high standard of quality.
This double breast pump is automated and provides 32 different options that are completely customisable and ideal for multiphase pumping. As well as this the system does provide speed and suction dials to once again give you a greater level of control.
Ameda has also designed this to mimic the waveform of the platinum hospital pump. This again highlights that you are getting a hospital standard product in the comfort of your property.
You might be worried about the cost. Well, while the quality level is high the price is low. The best breast pump for home use is available to purchase for less than €170. This is going to fit into the budget of a lot of new mothers while still providing the big benefits they need. More info
The system is battery operated which again adds to the level of portability. It also ensures that you get a system you will be able to rely on without worrying that it will stop working at the most inopportune moment.
In terms of both comfort and support, this device uses technology that ensures a smooth and consistent sensation during pumping. With cheaper, low-quality devices, there will always be issues with agitation and stopping then starting. This isn’t a problem with this particular device.
The product is also designed to be quiet which is great news if you have a baby sleeping nearby while it is in use. A quiet system isn’t always a guarantee when you buy a product like this but it is if you invest in the best breast pump.
Another issue present with cheap, low-quality breast pumps is the high possibility of infections and viruses or even mould. This isn’t an issue here because it does have an FDA cleared barrier that is designed to protect against all these issues. The surface is also easy to use, ensuring that you don’t have to worry about spending hours getting it clean.
Why Should You Choose The Ameda Finesse Breast Pump?
Aside from the reasons listed above, this breast pump provides a high level of portability and customisation. Ultimately, this means you can use it however and whenever you want. It has certainly been designed with daily use in mind which again, isn’t always a guarantee. The efficient product also provides a great level of support to mums who are working on a busy schedule or who need to make sure that milk supply is available for their baby minder while they are at work.
You might be wondering whether there are any additional products that you need or should consider once you have decided to invest in the best breast pump. Well, there are a few options and the most important choice is the flange. A flange is a device that fits on the breast and it’s important to get the right size. When you rent a breast pump this is particularly important to note that they don’t come with the device.
Milk bags will also ensure that you have a suitable option for storing the milk that you produce. With the bags, you will be able to pump directly into them for storage in the fridge or freezer. Since they have a zip seal you also won’t have to worry about any leakages or other issues. These are fast and freezer friendly so you can get a fully flexible solution that you need. (see Store’N Pour) We also supply Axifeed bottles which are also fantastic for keeping milk safe and secure.
What Does ‘Hospital Grade’ Actually Mean?
You have probably noticed that we have referred to these products as hospital grade. It’s worth noting that these aren’t any old item that you can buy from Amazon or even your local Argos. These are considered to be medical standard devices.
As such, they are the equipment that you will likely find nurses, doctors and lactation consultants use to help new mothers. In fact, we regularly supply the breast pumps we have to hospitals and clinics. Ultimately, this means that they are trusted and tested to provide the support and benefits medical professionals want for their patients.
Hospital-grade pumps can also be used by multiple users with an accessory kit which is why they are so suitable for rentals.
As this article explains hospital grade pumps are also beneficial for low supply levels as well as exclusive pumping. They are also recommended for a baby that is preterm, too sick to breastfeed or breastfeeding twins.
Why Else Are These The Best Breast Pumps?
One of the key reasons why we think these are the best products available is that they are both classified as a double breast pump. What does this mean?
A double breast pump provides fantastic benefits because you can get milk from both breasts at the same time. This provides a more efficient solution that will typically result in a higher level of milk without issues from soreness. Typically, pumping with both breasts is recommended by lactation consultants which is why hospitals will always have a double breast pump on site.
Multiple studies have shown that a double breast pump will lead to a mother being able to produce more milk and there’s one other factor to consider. Pumping one breast can lead to leakage from the other. With the double breast pump, you avoid this issue completely.
These are also electric breast pumps. With an electric breast pump, you gain the option of altering the settings, taking complete control and this is great news. Again, it’s going to ensure that you get a higher level of comfort that you want and avoids any manual strain.
With these devices, you won’t have to pump the breast yourself. Once the flange is positioned the process is completely automated. This again ensures that you do get a higher level of comfort and you don’t have to worry about needing to pump for too long.
Indeed, with a double breast pump and an electric breast pump, the time is cut in half.
Where Can You Purchase The Best Breast Pump?
Have we convinced you that one of the two breast pumps we offer is the right choice for you? You might be wondering where you can get one for yourself. The answer is right here. It’s easy and fast to arrange your own high-quality electric breast pump that you’ll be able to rely on time and time again.

It’s always going to be nerve-racking figuring out the ideal options for breastfeeding your baby. Particularly if this is your first time. Getting a high quality breast pump can reduce stress and give you the peace of mind that you are providing the ideal option for your little one.
It can even provide a more comfortable and relaxing experience. That’s why we are recommending the hospital grade products that we sell. When it comes to breast pumps you should never settle for anything less than the absolute best for you and your baby.
