The Ameda Purely Yours Ultra Breast pump is a double electric breast pump that comes in a micro-suede and pebbled faux leather tote bag. This breast pump offers mothers a convenient way to feed their baby when they are away from home or unable to breastfeed. The motor for the pump weighs around 1 pound, making it very light weight and easy to carry in the tote bag. The pump uses an AC adapter, battery power(uses 6AA batteries in the built in battery compartment), and comes with a car adapter(depending on the model). If not a car adapter can be purchased separately. Also, it includes a manual pump adapter in case you don’t have access to a power outlet or your batteries die during a pumping session.
