My Ameda Experience

Monday, October 17, 2011

Recently, I won a breast pump from Manila Fashion Observer which was sponsored by Babymama. I wanted to have another breast pump after buying my spectra. And the timing was just right. I couldn't wait for it to arrive. I was excited!

When finally it came! I slowly opened the package, examining every parts included. (By the way, this is my third breast pump).

At first glance, it looks kinda weird, having different controls for speed and suction. I was afraid that it might hurt me so I started with the lowest suck, and the slowest speed, working my way to full blast. It wasn't painful at all. In fact, I love it.

This is where I store my Ameda, inside my drawer.

It is lightweight and handy. I can carry it anywhere. I tried putting 6 AA batteries. Yes you read it right, six (6) batteries and it felt the same as if it was plugged.

Okay enough with the positive side, let's move on to the negative ones.

First, although it looked like you can put two Ameda bottles, it really doesn't fit the whole bottle. It really doesn't fit at all. It may serve as a stand for the bottles, but even then, your bottles may end up falling instead.

Second, although you can put AA batteries, it would have been better if it had rechargeable batteries like the medela freestyle. It would have been more hassle free.

Third, the adapters are heavy.

Other than that, I'm happy with my Ameda.

Thank you Manila Fashion Observer and Babymama for the wonderful prize!
