||My mood while writing this blog:|
So i've decided when the baby is born to try breastfeeding exclusively...i've had a lot of friends who struggled, but i'm determined to succeed! After all my husband is letting me be a stay at home mom! However, I wanted to find an electric breast pump incase I struggled with breastfeeding, needed help with my milk supply, and so that I can have a break from feedings on occassion. I can't decide what breast pump is best in regards to function and $$$.
I am leaning toward the Lansinoh Double Electric Pump because of it's good reviews and the cost...but wanted to see what the opinions of others are. I don't know how to use a breastpump, and don't fully understand the entire concept. I see that I can purchase additional freezer bags (love the idea), but with the freezer bags can I just drop those liners into any bottles??? Any advice would be great! First time mommy, and there are just a lot of decisions to make...last week it was the crib! Who would think all these things would be so difficult!

- Tuesday, 1 Sep I'm kind of late here, sorry. I plan on renting a pump from my hospital until I know if the breast feelding endeavor is going to work for us. The I will go buy one. I hope I can BF!! I don't think the bags can just be thawed and dropped into the bottle, but I really don't know. I ordered a breast milk bag thaw cup, abd storage bags and organzier for my freezer. They don't say anything about being able to go right into the bottles. But that could just be the brand I'm using as well. I have a breast feeding class next Tuesday night which I'm hoping answers all my questions! Have you taken a class or gotten any more answers recently? Got a bun in the oven
- Tuesday, 14 Jul I have heard the hand held manual ones are better than the electric ones. Good luck with it! jrsully24
- Tuesday, 14 Jul I hear ya! I was so confused with my son...I bought the Medela one as well and it was okay. I am with you...I might do some more research and try something else this time. For traveling though I used the ISIS pump (by Avent) and I loved it! Super easy to use and packed up really easy. I definitely plan to sue that one while I am traveling or at work . For a maual, it didn't take too long. Let me know if you hear of another brand that might work. Good luck! Gigantor
- Tuesday, 14 Jul I had Medela with my daughter and it was OK. But I read and heard great things about Ameda Purely Yours type of dual pump. I think this time around I go with the second one.
