  • If you plan to pump all the time I would get an electric if not The Medlea Manual bump is AWESOME.. Most hospitals give them in the maternity ward..

  • Gerber hand pump massages your breast and it is #1 in my book but for the first 6 months i rented one i was so engorged that machine really made the difference for me
    good luck

  • It is rather pricey, but out of all the pumps I used the absolute BEST was the Medela Pump-In-Style (it's automatic). It's the closest you can get to a hospital grade pump, and it's just so easy to use. New they're something like $225, but I got mine used for $100 and I was able to sell it for $80. If used pumps give you the heeby-jeebies you can always replace the tubing which is super cheap.

  • Also, the last post about replacing tubing. You can usually get new tubing, bottles, and suction cups from the hospital or WIC office if you get that.

  • I had a hand pump & I HATED it. I'm going to try to buy an electric one this time. Medela is supposed to be the best.
