I really want to try to pump this time around when we have baby number 2 rather than formula...I'm strictly using bottles either way...I really want to use the tommee tippee brand that babies r us carries, but the only downfall is that they don't carry the breastpump. So I do have a few questions...:can I use other bottles?...what's a good breastpump? I would like to use one that's battery or electric operated...any other advice would be great!Answer Question

It is very difficult to pump and bottle feed. Twice or three times or more harder than breastfeeding. Unless you are blesses with great supplies of milk and have a great let down reflex you are going to be pumping every 2-3 hours around the clock and always worried about supply. You will be cleaning pump parts at 3 am and needing to feed a hungry baby bottles. Few women that think they will do it for months make it 6 weeks.
I suggest talking with a LLL Leader, lactation consultant, doula, or counselor about your issues concerning breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is better for the baby and you and is so much less stressful. Your baby doesn't get many or the benefits by bottle feeding.
