We are thrilled to be kicking off our Blogiversary Celebration with a breastpump from Ameda! The Ameda breast pump is our favorite and the only one that we carry in our boutique. Ameda is a great company to work with – they care about moms, they employ lactation consultants to help moms with questions and to help out stores like me! So you might wonder – beside Ameda being such a great company – Why do we like the Ameda pump?
The Purely Yours Breast Pump is the only portable double breast pump that combines the legacy of hospital-proven technology with mom-friendly features. It’s ideal for moms working full-time or for anyone who wants a quick, easy and effective breast pumping experience.
- The Purely Yours does not require inspection of tubing or a six step cleaning process for milk/moisture. No worries about mold growing in tubing or alcohol vapors from cleaning. There is no air exchange between the tubing and expressed milk. The Purely Yours has a diaphragm barrier that protects baby’s milk. This FDA Cleared Viral Barrier does not require inspection or cleaning of tubing. There are only four parts to wash. This barrier also keeps outside air out of baby’s milk that may contain pollutants, allergens and smoke.
- The Purely Yours is Piston-driven – for comfortable and efficient pumping. This is the most recommended form of breast pump technology!
- The Purely Yours is Compact and lightweight – weighs only 1 pound.
- The Purely Yours has individually adjustable cycle and suction controls — you create a pumping experience most comfortable and effective for you.
- The Purely Yours saves you time – its unique design prevents milk and moisture from entering tubing, so there’s no need to clean pump tubing!
- The Purely Yours kit is the same as the kit for all Ameda Products – no extra expense for extra parts and no troubles with reconfiguring. Switching from dual to single pumping does not require levers or plugs.
- Use it anywhere! Operates using 3 power sources – AC adapter, AA batteries or car adapter.
- The Purely Yours is appropriate for mother’s who are returning to work full time, as well as for occasional pumping needs.
- All of the components and accessories for this pump are BPA Free! So you can be assured that the milk you are working so hard to pump for you baby is safe for him to drink!
- It’s AFFORDABLE! With four models to choose from – any mom can afford this pump!
The Ameda Purely Your Breastpump comes in four different models. All models contain a base pump and the patented Ameda Dual Hygenikit accessory package which contains all of the parts/pieces that you need to get started pumping. And when you get your pump from our Boutique Store, you also get a copy of our great Pumping and Working Tips article which will get you started on your journey with breastpumping! Our favorite model (and our best-selling one!) is the Purely Yours Breastpump with Carry All Tote. It has the perfect amount of accessories whiile still maintaining a very affordable price – so that you can get everything you need with your pump (carrying case, extra bottles, milk storage case, etc) and sill have room left in your budget for some other things that you might “want” or “need”.
