Re: Buying a pump

Just so you know, unless you are going to be working outside the home or otherwise separated from your baby regularly for long periods of time, or you have a baby in the NICU, you don't need a double-electric pump. You don't need a pump at all to have a successful breastfeeding relationship. Pumping early in your breastfeeding relationship can exhaust you, decrease your confidence in your ability to breastfeed, cause oversupply, etc etc.

A good manual pump will do everything you need unless you WOH or have a seriously ill baby. The Avent Isis is a good manual pump and isn't very expensive.
