    Don't quite get what you mean, the difference between pumping and sucking.. but I use Avent manual pump and have always found it ok though haven't tried any others.

    I used the tommee tippee one too and it worked fine! Couldn't get on with the avant one. Never tried anything else though!

    Avent Isis hand pump! Great stuff :D With that one you dont have to pump all the time, but you pump, pump and then hold, and milk still coming out! :cheer:

    The medela swing is very good, it imitates the natural sucking reflex of a baby (i.e. fast at first until you let down and then slower longer sucks once you've let down). It's expensive but a very good pump in my opinion :) I got mine for when I'd had DS, for DD I had the mini medela which was good but a little brutal!
