Wildgreen, I use an Ameda purely yours double pump but I had to pump while I was at work.  It was a double electric.  I liked it because it's a closed system pump so no chance of milk getting into the motor or parts to create mold issues.  I also used a medela harmony hand pump when I slowed down on pumping.  I much prefer the electric; easier.  You don't have to pump and dump if you want a drink once in a while.  Your breast milk is going to have the same alcohol content as your blood.  If you "over do it" you just might need to hold off nursing for a bit and pump if it gets uncomfortable.  Don't waste that liquid gold.  yummy.gif

I just started looking into pumps and getting one from my insurance last night. I'm glad to hear you like the Ameda Purely Yours, Becky, because I think that's one I can get. I need to call the supplier and then they will contact the insurance and birth center to confirm coverage/need. Not sure yet whether I can get it ahead of time or have to wait until baby is here. So complicated!
