I am going to be pumping quite a bit with this baby as I work full-time 12 hour shifts. Would it be better to get the Lactina over the Pump In Style? I used the Lactina with my first child and it worked great, I never tried the PIS. I like that the PIS comes in a backpack or a tote bag. It will look a lot nicer carrying it to work. LOL
Pump in style vs. lactina
I exclusively pump and I've killed one PIS already. The first one had been used some before I started exclusively pumping but 7-10 times/24 hr period for 10 months was just too much for the PIS. If I could go back and do it again, knowing that I would be pumping for the long haul, I'd get a Lactina.
I used the PIS for a bit, but the Symphony I rented from the hospital was infinitely better. If you're going to be pumping a lot and for a long time, I'd suggest that. It took me half the time to get the same amount with the Symphony versus PIS. My hospital rented them for $50 a month. Often insurance will cover it, too.
