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.
I wass just coming here to post the same thing. I thought I had seen a manual pump at the drug store for 12 bucks. I looked today at BRU, and the only ones were $35-45.
I don't want to wash all the parts and drag out my big pump for quick trips. Plus, I have lots of supply, so I think a manual one will do me fine for lots of things.
Any advice on best places to buy your favorite manual pump?
I really like my Medela Harmony. Back when I was donating I'd be able to keep my supply high enough to feed my DS and pump 5 oz. From one side in one sitting. Twice or 3 times a day. It was awesome.
