The Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump is designed to offer complete, customizable comfort, and efficiency. With its custom control operation you get the option of adjusting the suction levels as well as the speed, allowing you to choose from 32 combinations.
It also offers a one of a kind proven airlock protection, designed to provide a barrier keeping air and moisture from coming in contact with your breast milk, as well as narrow tubing that’s impossible to clean. Your breast milk stays purely yours.
The Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump also offers custom fit flange sizes designed for your unique breast size. The three most commonly used flange sizes are included with the breast pump, giving you the ability to find what works best in the beginning and what works best later on as your body changes. Four other flange sizes are also available, and sold separately.
The Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump comes with an AC adapter, and is also battery operational (requires 6 AA batteries, not included). You also have the option of purchasing a car adapter which is sold separately.

After researching the 117 reviews I found on Amazon, I’ve come to a conclusion. The Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump is a great pump for a great price! Out of those 117 reviews, 90 were extremely satisfied with their purchase. What I like most about this breast pump is the fact that the breast milk goes directly into the bottle and there’s no chance of back flow to contaminate it. Most breast pumps have lots of tubing and sometimes the milk will back flow into the tubing, possibly contaminating it or causing moisture to build up in the tubes. Once this happens its extremely hard to get the tubing cleaned. Because of Ameda’s airlock protection, you don’t have to worry about that.
I also like the fact that its powerful and you have so many options to choose from as far as comfort levels go. I also love that the Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump comes with three different flanges, standard to large, offering you different choices. Plus, as your body changes, and it most likely will, you’ll still be able to custom fit your own unique size.
Now, having said all that, I must tell you what I don’t like about the Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump. The NOISE! It’s loud, and after using it continuously for an extended period of time, it seems to get louder. Several reviewers claimed to have problems with the motor after using it for a long period of time, like 7.5 months of using it everyday up to 6 times a day. The plus is that those same reviewers were able to contact Hollister (the manufacturer) and had replacements parts, or even motors, replaced within days. Reviewers stated that because the customer service was so incredibly friendly and fast, regardless of the motor problems, they were still extremely satisfied.
The Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump is not perfect, nothing is, but I do feel it is still an excellent investment. Keep in mind, just like anything else parts have to be replaced occasionally. Unfortunately, it’s not like you can just run down to the store and pick up extra parts for your Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump, you have to order it online. I recommend purchasing an Ameda Extra Parts Kit to have on hand just in case, or a separate manual breast pump, like the Medela Harmony, or the AVENT Manual Breast Pump, just in case your Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump is out of commission.

Full Time working mom – used for 1 year, June 3, 2011
I went back to work after my daughter was 7 weeks old, she is now 1 and has never been fed formula. I couldn’t have done it without the Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump. I used this breast pump 3 times a day for the past year with not a single problem. Things to keep in mind when looking at breast pumps is the portability and the cleaning process. I was never able to put all of the pump accessories and the cooler into the bag and then zip it up either, but this wasn’t an issue for me. I just put the cooler on top of everything and you couldn’t see the stuff inside. Cleaning the Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump is a breeze. You do not need to clean the hoses, unlike some other brands, which means I can clean everything in under 1 minute. Keep a bottle of soap and a little cleaning brush with you in the bag. I did purchase extra accessories, but did not need them. I do however recommend that if you pump full time to purchase extra pump bottles. You will be cleaning them every night if you don’t.
For every mom who wants to go back to work full time and not give your kid formula, you can do it. It takes a lot of dedication to always pump regularly in order to keep your supply up, but it is possible!

Great & Durable Pump!, September 22, 2010
I have been using the Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump 4-6 times DAILY for at least 3 months and it has performed perfectly! I highly recommend this product. It is an electric pump so it does make noise; if you need to be quiet, I found that if you put a blanket or pillow over the unit the sound is significantly muffled. As mentioned above, I use the Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump a lot and it has done well with repeated use. I haven’t had to replace any parts, other than the one my cat thought was a chew toy. I don’t have any experience with other breast pumps, but this one is great for the price (the carry-all bag, cooler bag/ice packs, and other parts that come with the product are very useful).
