Re: Pumping for a friend

I recommend pumping on one side (cheapo pump) and feeding your baby on the other. That's the only way I can pump!

Start lightly. And pump 20 minutes after you feed. You will get very little at first.

Add a pump session after baby goes to bed.

Can you tell me more about this? I have a swing and sometimes it would be so much easier to have a double but since Im a SAHM I can't justify the most of a PISA for the number of times I do pump.

Re: Pumping for a friend

whats your price range? you can buy this for the price of a used medela (which technically are single use pumps) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

I would ask your friend to buy it. in the long run it will be cheaper than formula

Fixed the link. OP i got my PISA on here and it came with all new tubing and bottles for $50 ppd. so you can occasionally find a good deal on here.
