Hi all! I posted on the intro board about my situation but I will give you all a brief of what I am about to go through.
I am 100 % dedicated to my children, their health, and our relationship. I have been a SAHM for the past 8 1/2 months and had worked on and off before we have DC #2
I successfully nursed DD for 10 months until she self-weaned. I was lucky enough then to have had a dedicated husband and father to our child back then as I was able to SAH for the entire time.
Well, this time around I am not so fortunate. DH has taken a turn for the worst. His attitude is in the dumps and he is of no help and no support what-so-ever.
He had promised me over and over during the summer months when he was working that he would help me to buy a dual electric pump but he never did.
I found one for $175 at a local drug store. A Purely Yours too! I don't think it comes with the travel bag, but I am sure I can do without it for that price. All I will need is a good insulated bag to store the milk and a book bag or tote bag...which I already have.
I will be returning to work full time in a week or less. I plan to purchase it after I take car of top priority bills such as the car payment and insurance so that I don't lose that.
I am willing to bring along my hand pump to work with me as I do let-down pretty quickly with it, but just the fact...it will be time consuming and it will be a pain.
I will not have the time to pump out enough to keep my supply up to par, just enough to relieve the engorgement. I do not in any sort of way want to lose my milk as there is nothing in this world that I enjoy more than nursing my baby and giving him the best.
So to get right to the point of all of this...
Does anyone out there have a good pump- any brand, but reliable, used, new, whatever that they could loan me or sell to me for a reasonably low cost. I am sure that I can ask a family member to loan me the money to cover the cost, if need be.
If anyone can loan one to me, I promise that I will return the pump as soon as I purchase my own. I am willing to do this through email... firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can give you my mailing address.
I thank anyone who can help me so kindly. It would really mean a great deal to me and my little nursling to be able to continue what we have been so dedicated to.
