I will be returning to work in a few weeks. Babe will be 8.5 mos, and I will work 2 days/ week (non-consecutive). I will be away from him for a good 9+ hours each of those days. There is a possibility of nursing at lunchtime; we'll have to see how that pans out. My son has never taken a bottle successfully; admittedly, we haven't tried too hard. We may just go with sippy cups at this point. I wouldnt' be shocked if he refuses the milk or takes just enough to take the edge off his hunger and mostly reverse cycles on my work days. Because of all of these factors, I think I'd just like a mid-range priced pump. This is my third, and probably last, child. I do have a Lansinoh hand pump, but feel like that will be too slow and inefficient.
Please give me your pump recommendations. What works well for you? What is comfortable and efficient, while still a midrange price? Anything I ought to avoid? Thanks so much!
