The three most commonly used flange sizes are included with the breast pump, giving you the ability to find what works best in the beginning and what works best later on as your body changes. Four other flange sizes are also available and sold separately.

My Review:

After researching the 117 reviews I found on Amazon, I’ve come to a conclusion. The Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump is a great pump for a great price! What I like most about this breast pump is the fact that the breast milk goes directly into the bottle and there’s no chance of backflow to contaminate it. Most breast pumps have lots of tubing and sometimes the milk will backflow into the tubing, possibly contaminating it or causing moisture to build up in the tubes. Once this happens it’s extremely hard to get the tubing cleaned. Because of Ameda’s airlock protection, you don’t have to worry about that.

I also like the fact that its powerful and you have so many options to choose from as far as comfort levels go. I also love that the Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump comes with three different flanges, standard to large, offering you different choices. Plus, as your body changes, and it most likely will, you’ll still be able to custom fit your own unique size.

Now, having said all that, I must tell you what I don’t like about the Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump. The NOISE! It’s loud, and after using it continuously for an extended period of time, it seems to get louder. Several reviewers claimed to have problems with the motor after using it for a long period of time, like 7.5 months of using it every day up to 6 times a day. The plus is that those same reviewers were able to contact Hollister (the manufacturer) and had replacements parts, or even motors, replaced within days. Reviewers stated that because the customer service was so incredibly friendly and fast, regardless of the motor problems, they were still extremely satisfied.

The Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump is not perfect, nothing is, but I do feel it is still an excellent investment. Keep in mind, just like anything else parts have to be replaced occasionally. Unfortunately, it’s not like you can just run down to the store and pick up extra parts for your Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump, you have to order it online. I recommend purchasing an Ameda Extra Parts Kit to have on hand just in case, or a separate manual breast pump, like the Medela Harmony, or the AVENT Manual Breast Pump, just in case your Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump is out of commission.
