I have been using a ameda pump but understand they are not the best. I haven't been able to bring in my supply yet and still hoping for this to happen.
Lenore told me to ask Nona about pumps well Nona help!

Hello!
The 2 best pumps you can get are the PIS or the Whittlestone. The PIS has proven itself over and over to bring in milk. The whittlestone has been up graded now. It works very well to. Its like a baby sucking at the breast. But it is very comfortable. Either one of these would work great! <img src="http://www.asklenore.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/wink.gif" alt="" />

Carol,
I use the Medela Latina Select pump, and I have had great success with it. Just an FYI. Good Luck. <img src="http://www.asklenore.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif" alt="" />

Where do you get the PIS pumps? Who makes them?

They are made by Medela. You can order new ones on ebay for about 190.00. New never opened. Or you can order them from online babystores. Local pharmacies carry them to..But they usually want about 259.00 . A lot higher than ordering them online <img src="http://www.asklenore.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif" alt="" />

Make sure you get the NEWEST PIS with speed control AND suction control. <img src="http://www.asklenore.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif" alt="" />
