Need a pump for "a little here and there"
 
My 6 month old is starting solids this week and I've never pumped. I want to mix breast milk with her food. I don't want to hand express every time. I'd rather pump a few ounces every couple of days. Can anyone reccomend a good pump? TIA :goodvibes:

I have the medela advanced breast pump and I LOVE IT!! The only problem is that it is a little pricey. Some people buy them used and replace the parts which can cost less than buying it brand new. Good Luck!

i've used the avent manual for "a little here and there" and when i returned to work part time with great success! it's comfortable, affordable and very easy to wash and assemble.

Try the Medela Harmony. I have one that I haven't used yet, but I've got it on good word from others that it's wonderful - and it's only $40. :goodvibes:

I've been renting a hospital-grade Medela Symphony but, at $45 a month, I realized that I could've bought a PISA with the amount I spent in the past 7 months. D'oh!

I'm also a "here and there" occasional pumper. I don't really need the ability to pump both sides at once. And I'm not really concerned about doing it as fast as possible or anything. I didn't want a manual pump, though. I'm too lazy to sit there and squeeze the trigger over and over. ;) So, I just ordered a Medela Swing...which is a battery-powered single pump that supposedly has the same power as Medela's expensive double pumps. Drugstore.com has it on sale for $129.99. Haven't gotten it yet, though, so I can't say whether it works as well as the fancy one I've been renting. But it seems to get pretty good reviews from other moms.

I definitely recommend the Medela Harmony. :thumbsup: It works great. It is easy to disassemble and wash, only a few parts. It is cheap ($40 or less.) And it is readily available, places like Target.

I love my Medela Swing! I got it at Target :)
