Ameda Purely Yours Double Electric Breast Pump (vs. Medela Pump In Style)


The Ameda Purely Yours Double Electric Breast Pump provides for an efficient and easy breast pumping experience. There are many different Ameda Purely Yours to choose from, based on the accessories that you want and need. All pumps come with the same pump but accessories vary with package which means prices range from $180 to $300.

CustomControl™ Ameda breast pumps feature fully independent CustomControl settings for speed and suction. Dual adjustability lets the mother select her best levels for milk flow and comfort, so she can create a multi-phase pumping experience.

Proven Airlock Protection™ Helps protect breast milk and the baby from bacteria, mold and viruses while pumping. Proven Airlock Protection keeps tubing dry by preventing air flow between the expressed milk and pump tubing while pumping. There’s no need to clean the narrow tubing and the milk stays pure.

CustomFit Flange System™ The Ameda CustomFit Flange System makes it easy to find a good breast flange fit by offering seven breast flange sizes that adapt to all Ameda breast pumps and kits. Seven sizes allow for a comfortable and customized fit.

VacuSense™ Technology The VacuSense Technology is found only in the Ameda Platinum® Breast Pump. It adjusts internally when single and double pumping and at different altitudes to ensure consistent suction levels. Engineered to emit and receive signals nearly every ½ second, VacuSense Technology offers the most consistent pumping experience no matter the location or protocol.


  • Closed System – Ameda Purely Yours breast pumps use the patented HygieniKit Milk Collection System, which has a silicone diaphragm designed to prevent milk from leaking into the pump’s tubing. This saves clean up time since the tubes do not require washing after each use.
  • BPA Free – All parts that come in contact with expressed milk are made of BPA free polypropylene plastic.
  • FDA Approved – The HygieniKit is the only milk collection system approved by the FDA to keep milk and outside air separate from each other.
  • Compact and Lightweight – Pump motor only weighs one pound.
  • Microprocessor Controlled, Piston Driven – According to pump experts, piston pumps are more effective at expressing milk comfortably than diaphragm pumps.
  • Individually Adjustable Controls – You can better mimic your baby’s natural nursing rhythm with 4 cycle speeds and 8 suction levels.
  • Built-in Bottle Holders – Help to keep bottles and freezer storage bags upright during milk expression to prevent spilling.
  • 3 Power Options – Since the Ameda Purely Yours can be operated via AC adapter, 6 AA batteries, or car adapter, you can pump anywhere you go.

Ameda Purely Yours (PY) rivals the Medela Pump In Style (PIS). The Medela PIS is more common but also more expensive. The Ameda Purely Yours is not as common but people should seriously consider this one because it is just as good but less expensive.

A few of the major differences is that the Ameda PY is a little louder than the Medela PIS. Medela is more readily available in stores so if you need replacement parts, they are easier to find than Ameda replacement parts. It all has to do with the fact that Medela is more popular but not necessarily better.

Overall Ameda Purely Yours is a great pumping system. It may not work as fast or as efficiently as the Medela but if you are pumping from home then fast and efficient may not be as much of a necessity. You get a great pump that is less expensive than its Medela counterpart.
