Re: couple of newbie questions - help?
I am EBF my son who is a month old. I plan on going back to work one day so I bought a manual pump. (An electric just isn't in our budget right now) I think it does the job well. I just pump when I get extra time, which is rarely during the day. But I always pump at night, and so far I have about 25oz total in my freezer stash.
AND, I TOTALLY reccommend Gerber cool breast gel pads. Those first few weeks that are real rough and your breasts are sore.. seriously, these things are AMAZING. I bought mine from Meijer..
