Re: Pump Recommendations?
Is there a way for you to rent a pump to see if you like it before you buy it? Some hospital supply stores rent breast pumps. I rented a Medela Lactina for 8 months, kept it at home. My work schedule was such that I only had to pump at home. Maybe you could try a PIS for a month or so to see if it works, while investing in a manual and use that as well.
I used to use the Lactina, but now I only do a Medela manual pump when I am going to be away from the baby (almost 2) for more than 8 hours, which is rare. I was away for a weekend for work, and pumped 3 times per day while away then got my supply back up with tea.
