  • The Medela Pump in Style is pretty much the best pump you can buy. I have a friend who could never manage to get her baby to latch, so she used her pump in style to exclusively pump for a year. She even had tons of frozen breastmilk that took over her whole freezer. It's an awesome pump.

  • Medela makes many different models. I had one that had a shoulder strap and storage for easy transport. They also come with handpumps.

  • I used the medela pump in style. It was the most effective one that I researched.

    since they specialize in breastfeeding, they put all their research into the subject to produce the best pumps. Unlike other brands who are just out to get more money by flooding the market with supplies...like playtex.

  • I would recommend learning manual expression:

    It's free, silent and you can take it anywhere. It never needs cleaning. Even if you decide to get a pump anyhow, check out the massage technique that goes with this --it will greatly increase the amount you can extract.
