  • The one I got was from Sears and only cost $50 bucks. I used it for 3 weeks and I don't plan on ever using it again, heh, if you want to take it off my hands for $10 plus shipping costs, send me a message :)

  • I got mine from Target for $250. It is the Medela Pump in Style. It is fairly expensive sounding, but considering that I will eventually have more children, I will be getting plenty of years' worth of use. Especially compared to the costs of formula, it is so much cheaper to pump and save all that extra milk for when I'm not home! I have more than made up the cost.

    With Christmas coming up, you can let people know you'd like giftcards to someplace like Target and combine them to buy the pump... Also check out ebay. Used pumps are safe as long as you buy new lines and horns, I know Medela sells kits. I bought one for my SIL (from Target) since she's borrowing my pump for her newborn...

  • Your local hospital will rent you one for a very low price. They are REALLY good pumps, too.
