Re: Pump Recommendations?

ITA that a manual pump should be more than sufficient to pump enough for being gone 10 hours a week. At $35 v. $200, I would definitely try a manual pump first. Honestly, by 2 or 3 months, dc may be able to go the 2-3 hours that you'll be gone without eating anyway. You would of course want to leave milk in case, but my son isn't yet 3 months old and I usually nurse him right before we go somewhere and he'll usually not get hungry again for 2-3 hours.

I only have Medela products, so I can't compare, but I can get lots of milk with a manual pump, the only drawback being that my hand starts to cramp after a while.
