VI-E. Rental pumps Ameda Egnell

There's some debate over which pump [Ameda Egnell or Medela Lactina]
is better (Nursing Mothers' Counsel has been considering
stocking Ameda-Egnells). Our panel of pumping moms found the A.E.
pump kits less comfortable than the Medela kits. The plastic is
harder and the nipple tends to get pinched in the shield.

I get a better letdown with the Ameda (I was starting to have problems
with letdown using the Nurture III). The Ameda is somewhere in
between the Nurture III and the classic Medela in terms of size and
weight; it's fairly portable and can be carried back and forth to work
easily. One advantage to the Ameda over the Nurture III is that you
don't have to use your thumbs to turn the suction on and off; the
machine does it for you.
