I really do hate pumping and so with the rest of the boys they NEVER had a bottle at all all demand until the clw. but with this baby I see that I will have to offer a bottle for my sanity and logistics. I really dont want to have to drag around my ameda pump and deal with tubes/power sources and whatnot.
Any suggestions for good manual pumps? back yrs ago I tried the old medela handheld (the kind where you pulled the piston not the newer squeeze handle ones) and HATED IT. Also tried a batery operated pump (first stages?) it was ok. Ameda hands down for comfort,effectiveness and amt of milk.
I want a manula for the occassional outing w/o baby say if I need to make a quick run to the grocery store or whatnot.
