I have the Affinity Pro. It’s ok. I ilke that it has a timer on it. When I got an extra set of parts, I had to order directly from the company.

The bottles and bags are almost universal. I’ve used Medela bottles on the Lansinoh pump apparatus, and it works fine.

No direct experience, but the instructor of our childbirth class said that Hygeia was wonderful, actually a step above Medela. Hygeia is a closed-system pump, meaning it can be safely used by different women, or stored and brought back into use a couple of years later, without worries about fluids, mold, etc., getting into the mechanism of the pump itself (Medela and other open-system pumps are not supposed to be shared/resold/etc. because of this issue).

I was reading up about them on Hygeia’s website and liked what I saw; unfortunately they are hard to find in our area, and pricey to buy out-of-pocket – but I will be looking into whether I can get a reimbursement for one from our insurance. If not I’ll get a Medela, but Hygeia would be my top choice.

Yeah, I’ve heard great things about Hygeia.
