Ameda Purely Yours Double Electric Breast Pump Review
|Product Name:||Ameda Purely Yours Double Electric Breast Pump|
|Ease of Use:||3.5|
Ameda Purely Yours Double Electric Breast Pump is a lightweight and portable pump with an added advantage of being a closed system which means more hygiene. It has a carry-all tote shoulder bag but lacks battery option which curtails its portability. The suction is decent and the performance is satisfactory. Ameda has its share of admirers but is not a stellar performer like Medela PISA. It has many things going for it like brand name, hygiene, price, looks and size. Best for working moms.

Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump Review
Ameda Purely Yours Double Electric Breast Pump weighs in at 5.9 pounds and measures 14 x 7.8 x 11.6 inches.
It also provides a carry-all tote shoulder bag. It has a proven airlock protection that protects breast milk and the baby from bacteria, mold, and viruses while pumping.
The kit also includes 4 milk collection bottles and a Cool’N Carry milk storage tote to keep milk cool when on-the-go.
1. Ease of Use: Ameda Purely Yours Double Electric Breast Pump is easy to assemble and operate because of a customization feature called CustomControl™.
Speed and suction control knobs are intuitive and give lot more control over pumping.
Ameda Purely Yours gives great flexibility in terms of speed and vacuum. You have 32 combinations to choose from.
Both, suction strength and cycle speed can be controlled by their individual knobs. This gives unprecedented flexibility to moms to adjust the suction and cycle according to their convenience.
Every mom would love this feature because everyone has her own preferences.
2. Efficiency: Ameda Purely Yours double electric breast pump is a decent performer.
Ameda Purely Yours doesn't have a pre-configured let-down mode which is usually available in popular breast pumps such as Medela Pump In Style Advanced.
Due to the lack of this let-down mode, mom may have to struggle to find the best mode to trigger the let-down reflex.
In our reviews, we found moms getting frustrated to get the proper settings.
Ameda Purely Yours is best for moms who need to pump sparingly.
If you intend to use it few times everyday for a prolonged period of time then you should go for Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump without any hesitation.
3. Portability: By virtue of being lightweight and small with a carry-all tote shoulder it is very easy to carry. The bag is almost half the size of Medela PISA.
It includes an AC adapter. You can also use batteries (6 AA) also but those are not included.
Ameda Purely Yours is perfect for working moms who have to pump at work as it is very compact and portable.
The pump doesn't take much space on the desk or in the bag.
You can also use car adapter which again you will need to buy separately.
4. Comfort: Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump comes with flanges in 3 sizes ranging from standard to large which I found very useful.
The pump is comfortable but weak. Due to this long duration of pumping may mean more discomfort.
Ameda is comfortable electric pump. I wish it could have been bit more powerful also.
5. Hygiene: Ameda Purely Yours is a closed system which means breast milk is protected from dirt, dust, mold and bacterial infections.
Ameda claims that this pump is the only pump with a proven protection barrier called Airlock Protection™ barrier which keeps pump and the tubing dry and clean.
Hygiene is a major concern with breast pumps. Since Ameda Purely Yours is sealed and the milk doesn't back up in to the tubing or motor, there is no chance of buildup of mold or infection.
Cleaning the pump is easy as it has few pump parts.
As a mom, I find this system very assuring . The pump scores highly on Hygiene.
6. Sound: It is quite at lower levels but when I increased the speed and suction levels, the sound was much more.
I think this may be an issue with my pump so giving it a benefit of doubt. The beeps though could have been less loud.
7. Price: Ameda Purely Yours Double Electric Breast Pump is an affordable double electric breast pump.
Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump Reviews
I have been able to establish my milk supply for my baby only because of Ameda Purely Yours. It's is a great pump from every angle. It is easy to clean and I don't have to worry about molding in tubings. The service is great. All parts are available online on Amazon.
I give it 5 stars. It's almost god's gift for those mothers who want to provide their baby with breast milk and not formula feed. It's noisy but it doesn't bother me much. All accessories are good and long lasting.
Before spending any money for a breast pump, I almost devoured the whole internet. I found Ameda to be a brand which has been around and is well known. Ameda Purely Yours has good reviews and the price was just perfect for me. Considering these factors, I ordered from Amazon. I must say that I found Purely yours a great buy. I have not used any other breast pump so I cannot compare. But I this pump fulfilled my needs perfectly. I could it use it comfortably and clean in a jiffy. I am also taking it to the work where it takes very little space.
I bought Ameda purely yours last year. I used it for 4 months before I stopped using it as my boy started solids. All the while I was using the pump, I never had any trouble. I have also used a couple of other pumps, but i loved its flexible settings. I will recommend it to everyone.

I have tried to collate the best information available and write personal & real reviews for the benefits of parents who are confused with the plethora of breast pumps available. I have made an effort to steer clear of technical jargons and used layman language which is understood by people like us.
