I need help making a desicion about my pump

Okay I have been using an Avent pump for 6 months now - it has been included in the bottle recall.

I can only find the Medela Swing pump that I need at one place(unless you all know of another), and it's on backorder for an undetermined amount of time.

I'm not out any money regardless because I can return the Avent to pay for the Medela.

I am only going to need the pump for about 3 more months, should I wait for the new pump to come in, or just use my Avent for 3 more months? I hand wash it every time, how bad would the BPA be? I have no idea if I could still takeit back 3 months from now.

I'm too sleep deprived to think this one out on my own

I don't see any ads

I emailed a couple of those places to see if they'll ship to Canada

I found this company as well, waiting to see what their shipping is

I bought my PISA from them a couple years ago. Fast and friendly. A very good business to buy from- if they ship to canada!

I bought my medela from "The Birth Experience" (birthexperience.com). They are an on-line Canadian company. I travel a lot so I bought the Advanced Back Pack. I love it!
