Re: which pump is better?

My 11 mo old goes through about a large can 25 oz? every 8-10 days at daycare, but we also thin out her formula more than what the can says. HTH! The formula costs about $26/can

Please make sure you are fully funded and DH approved before comitting to buy.

Re: which pump is better?

I have an Avent Isis duo which is great! I think if you are working full time a double pump would be the best investment to make. You really can't go wrong with Medela, Avent or Lansinoh/Ameda. They all make great double pumps.

Re: which pump is better?

Lansinoh has a pump that's the same as the Ameda Purely Yours and it's only $149 at Walmart, which is really reasonable. I have a Avent Isis Duo and love it. I get way more with it than I did with my hospital grade Medela in a shorter amt of time. I've used it for almost 12mos and it's still going strong. Well worth the money.

There is a formula/bottle feeding forum now, they may be a good resource for you. I had to use formula with ds 1 and I bought his special kind (usually $35 a can) off of ebay for about $5 a can and that included shipping. THere was no other way we could have afforded it. I think we went through a can like every 2 to 2 1/2 days. Don't forget to add the nursery water, since you aren't supposed to use tap water. $$$ I DEFINITELY say its worth the $ to buy the new pump versus the formula. It will end up cheaper even though your daughter is already 10 months. hth
