    so there's no need for any special care in order to be able to breastfeed, am i right to say that?
    scared me.. keke~

    i agree with summerday. just ask for the FM glass bottles, they take lesser space that milk bottles in the fridge. Just replace the metal caps with plastic caps that you use for milk bottles because the metal caps will rust.

    Yes, like what happybean mention any standard mouth size bottles will do. Hee hee hee , did not buy any extra bottles other then the 6 bottle that come-in in the package, cos i ask for the glass bottle from the hospital that contain FM

    yes, i understand the distributor sells it for $280 including delivery. But i'm not in a hurry (only due 2nd half of july) so if i can get it for under $200 (after claiming VAT) then I figure that's quite a good deal.

    SummerDay, the price is just for the pump, not the whole set. I figure I'll mostly be pumping from home so I don't think i need the travel kit. Can i use normal bottles for the pump or does it have to be ameda bottles? Thanks for the advice!

    Hi happybean,
    I did try calling the distributor in singapore before buying from the net but the phone is forever no one answer
    How much did you pay for your pump ?

    Review on the Ameda breast pump

    I think the pump was great .
    At first is quite quiet but after sometime of using the noise get louder. According to friend that have use the medela mini plus set say the noise make by her set is louder than my ameda, but i have never hear the noise of medela before so dont know is it true. i think ameda was great because i use it very heavily. the first time i start to use it was when i son admit to the hospital due to jandice when he is only a few day old, at that time i pump every 2 hour for 3 day.... hee hee so lucky the pump did not burn , after i go back to work i pump 3 to 4 time in the day and additional once in the night and once in the morning as my son is teething now so he does not want to latch on. So average i am pumping around 5 time a day and i have being using for the pump for 6 month, and the pump is still working well. Definitely a great pump to have
    Due to my purchase is from US so the voltage is different but with a transformer the problem will be solve. Transformer cost a few dollar only and you can easily get it from any electrical shop or DIY shop like HomeFix

    Oh, one more thing if any of the part is wear n tear you can purchase them from the breastfeeding organizition, but the price is not cheap

    Hope this review is helpful for those mum-to-be to decide which breast pump they want to get.

    Hi gajahgirl,
    i brought my ameda from a US website and bring in through Vpost, total cost about S$370.00. i know you can get the pump is singapore at the price of S$288.00 for the pump only from muminmind or the breastfeeding organzition. The box wasnt very big i think it around 60cm x 40cm, not very heavy lar cos i can even bring it home on my own when i am :preggie:
    if you can get it at S$230.00 that is really very cheap but it is the whole set or just the pump?

    What i brought is http://www.breast-pumps.org/ameda_pu...s_backpack.asp

    I've been shopping around for a breastpump as well, and am also keen to get the ameda lactaline. SummerDay, may I ask how much you paid for it and how large and heavy the packaging was? Its available for GBP75 (about S$230) including delivery within the UK so I'm thinking of getting a friend to carry it back for me. Should also be able to get VAT refund which makes it significantly cheaper than buying from here. Getting from the UK also means no problems with electrial compatability.

    My son is teething now, and will not latch on at all
    Anyone has this experience ? How long will it take for him to be willing to latch on again? What can i do to help improve the situation?
