Re: Breast pumps

will you be using this pump just occasionally or most of the time?

i have a hrd time recommending anything other than a medela or a ameda...there truely are the ONLY two pumps that dont injure the breast tissue and stimulate milk when used correctly...

Re: Breast pumps

I think ocassionally. but first i'd like to get a stash of milk in storage. then after that, ocassionally.
How could I prevent chaff??ing? should I use lanolin?

Re: Breast pumps

As long as you don't pump for too long or too hard, I never chaffed... If I got sore, I would take a break from pumping and just let DD nurse. Although, I always used my Ameda.

(BTW ~ I have an Ameda PY for sale, if you want a good deal on one!)

Re: Breast pumps

the issue with some of the "leser" pumps is that they dont make various size shields, so it usually doesnt fit the mother correctly, causing pain and a drop in milk supply

Re: Breast pumps

I have a comfort select single and hated it! It worked well for about 2 week and then broke. Thats when I bought my Medela Pump In Style and love it! I haven't had any problems with it. Sometimes I get a little sore if I use it too much but I only pump once a day so its not too bad..

Re: Breast pumps

A common nickname for the Evenflo pump is Evilflo due to too many horror stories.

If you want an inexpensive pump that does the job right, get the Avent Isis manual pump. Works great!

And Amedas have a closed pump so you would just need to get new tubes and horns as there is NO risk of anything being passed along.

Re: Breast pumps

I've heard the evenflo refered to Evilflo b/c its so awful.

do NOT use lanolin- there's too much friction in it and it will cause issues. if you're getting chafed, use olive oil or pure coconut oil.
