Re: pumping question..

If you're just trying to store for the occasional bottle, might I suggest hand-expression? Here's a link that explains a great method: http://www.askdrsears.com/topics/bre...sing-your-milk

I exclusively pumped with a hospital-grade pump for 3 months, and then when both kiddos were home from the NICU, switched to a commercial pump (Ameda Purely Yours). I found that with practice I could hand-express an extra half-ounce on each side after each pumping session, and eventually ditched the pump altogether.

There are videos out there, or I'd be happy to pm you with tips.
