(As from their website)
"More than 70 years ago, Swedish engineer, Einar Egnell made it his life’s work to help breastfeeding mothers. After years of research, Egnell created the first comfortable and effective breast pump that closely mimics the sucking rhythm of nursing infants. In the process, Egnell also created the vacuum and cycling standards that today’s lactation professionals use to judge breast pump quality. Today’s Ameda breast pumps combined Egnell’s innovative technology with the features a 21st century mother expects. Everything Ameda offers – Ameda breast pumps and products, Ameda breastfeeding education, Ameda’s support of lactation professionals – reflects our passion for breastfeeding. Since 1942, Ameda has been the leading innovator and has delivered unmatched quality and service to lactation professionals, institutions and most importantly, mothers."

With the recent insurance changes in 2014, I was lucky enough to receive a complimentary breast pump from my insurance when I became pregnant with Little Boy. I was thrilled because when I had Little Mister, I didn't see the need for a pump and never got one, and when breastfeeding didn't work out for us after a while, I had no where to turn. With Little Boy if feeding directly from the breast doesn't work out, I plan to pump like a mad woman and feed that little guy my breastmilk! The breast pump that I received from my insurance was the Ameda Purely Yours and I will admit that I knew absolutely nothing about it, and wasn't really familiar with the Ameda brand. Once I did a little research, I was thrilled to see that they offered several other wonderful breastfeeding and pumping products and began to follow them on their social media channels.
One thing that stands out to me is the interaction that Ameda strives to achieve with their fans. I see daily updates on their Facebook and Twitter pages along with fun giveaways for their fans to enter. I myself even won a giveaway!
Ameda generously sent me a handful of their products to try out including their NoShow Premium Disposable Nursing Pads, their Nursing Bra, their Cool N Carry System which is perfect for pumping and working moms, their ComfortGel Breast Pads, and their Store and Pour system. Although I am not pumping yet, I am extremely excited about all of these wonderful products and have even begun to wear the nursing bra! There are several breast pump brands on the market, but Ameda is at the top of my list!
