Ameda Purely Yours Una Electric Breast Pump Review
This breast pump is perfect for mums who want a fast, comfortable and easy pumping experience as well as those who prefer a slower and more relaxed pump.
You can choose from 32 different settings, giving you the best option for your maximum comfort and milk flow each time. There are 7 different funnel sizes, offering the perfect fit for all mums. Due to so many different options, however, it can be difficult to find the right option and fit for you at first, especially for first time pumpers, and the pump is probably better suited to more experienced mums.
The breast pump claims to be used by hospitals, and certainly lives up to the hospital standard, with quality pumping.
The Ameda Purely Yours Una Electric Breast Pump is a tad expensive, and doesn’t have as good a value for money as some other breast pumps on the market, but for mums who want a high quality pump that’ll pump quickly and conveniently, this pump is great.

Sharing is caring!
Disclosure: I received this product free of charge to facilitate my review. All opinions are % mine.
When I had my first little one I had the worst pump in the history of pumps. To top it off I had to use it while working full time as a teacher,it was a recipe for disaster. So it was no surprise I only breastfeed for 7 months and not the whole year like I had wanted to. I know there were many other contributing factors but when youre working having a good pump is not only a luxury but a necessity. That is why when I had my next little one I knew I had to upgrade to a good pump and after lots and lots of research I decided to get a Medela. Thank Goodness for great research because that breast pump has been a life saver and it still works after 7 years. Thankfully though I needed something more compact that would go with me on trips. So when I was given the opportunity to try out the Freestyle I fell in love!
The Medela Freestyle breastpump is a double electric breast pump that is not only incredibly effective but also incredibly stylish.At first glance you would never guess this is a breast pump bag . Its so stylish and cute I would definitely buy it even if it didnt have a breast pump 🙂
Even inside youll find lots of great pockets and storage.
Even when empty you can see how many neat spots it has to get organized.
The Medela freestyle breast pump includes two different size breast shields and all thats included below along with 2 other bottles.
The pump itself is extremely light weight and compact and includes a rechargeable battery for mobile pumping.
The most interesting part about this pump is that it comes with a 2-Phase Expression® technology that is proven to produce more milk in less time and most important it is deigned for moms who pump several times a day.
What is 2-Phase Expression technology? Through research, Medela learned that there are two distinct phases of how babies breastfeed.
- Stimulation phase when babies first go to breast, they suck faster to start milk flowing.
- Expression phase after milk flow or let-down starts, babies breastfeed with a slower, deeper suck to remove milk.
So youre not just pumping endlessly youre getting the most out of your pumping session.
This great set also includes a nice little cooling bag which you can use to put your milk along with an ice pack keeping it safe during your working or travel time.
Need hands free comfort? It includes the accessories needed to pump hands free. To maximize the hands free experience The Easy Expression™ bustier is also recommended (not included).
It has a rechargeable battery that helps you while on the go so you can essentially pump anywhere, while doing anything.
Grabbing some liquid gold for your little one. Some other great features include:
Memory button: Records pump sessions so you can easily return to your favorite pumping pattern
Adjustable speed/vacuum combinations: Provide for a comfortable pump setting
One touch let-down button: Produces more milk in less time when pumping at Maximum Comfort Vacuum™ in the expression phase
Once youre done simply clean by disassembling it all and its ready for the next use 🙂
Ready to upgrade your pump? Dont forget to check out the Medela Recycles, a program focused on helping moms who have finished their breastfeeding journey help another mom start hers.Each pump they receive through Medela Recycles supports the donation of new hospital-grade, multi-use breastpumps and supplies to Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). All pumps recycled through the Medela Recycles program will go toward a donation of hospital-grade Medela Symphony® Preemie+TM Breastpumps and breastfeeding supplies to the Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). The goal is to provide moms with the same high-quality equipment they use at the hospital during their stay at a Ronald McDonald House. This consistency will ease the transition from the hospital to a Ronald McDonald House and give families caring for a baby in the NICU one less thing to worry about.
So not only is Medela a leader in Breast Pump equipment but they are ready to give back to the community in such a big way. I am in love my breast pump. It has become an important part of my breastfeeding journey. After breastfeeding 5 children I realize the importance of a good breast pump. You can purchase this pump online at Medela for $ or on Amazon (dont forget prime shipping) I dont look at it as an expense but as an investment, an investment in my time,and an investment in wholesome goodness for my little one that will allow me to pump when I cant be near to him. Head over to the Medela page and find out if your insurance covers a pump as well as more information on the Medela Recycles program. Most important dont forget to get social with them and keep up with their latest news and more on Facebook and Twitter.

They sat not far from me, which allowed me to take a closer look at them. All of them were, in my opinion, about 20 years old, thin, even probably skinny, but it suited them. I watched them for about 20 minutes and decided to go to the vestibule to smoke, lighting a cigarette, I turned to.
The window and trying to see something in the dark, I dragged on and then one of the guys entered the vestibule.8 Best Breast Pumps 2015
She asked fearfully and dragged the confused Gene into the car. Everything in the salon was strict and expensive, but Gena. Sat stiffly in a comfortable chair like in a dentist's office. The woman got behind the wheel and smiled affably: If I pump you, will I compensate for the moral damage ?.
