Any advice, part of me wants to go ahead and purchase a pump instead of renting one from the hospital. 

 

Since I will primarily be pumping in order to be able to miss a feed here and there, I was thinking of getting the Medela Swing Pump.

 

Any recommendations?

 

Thank you!

How long are you planning to pump?

I will most likely use it for occasional pumping, to be able to leave the baby to go out to dinner, or out in general. 

 

I went ahead and bought the Medela Swing pump...

 

Hopefully it works well!

Have you seen the reviews for the Hygeia EnJoye LBI breast pump?
