  • Is you LO not going with you? If she/he is, I'd skip pumping and just nurse! But if your going baby-free, I have heard great things about the Avent Isis manual pump. It's pricey for a manual but I know several moms who have it and they all LOVE it. Make sure you bring a cooler bag!

  • well i dont know for sure but i dont remember my manual ones really being loud so i would just say the smallest one y0u could find so its easier to hide

  • My advice- go back to the hotel room to pump. I spent the day at cedar Point, and I needed over 30 minutes to get all my milk out. Having not been around my son in half a day, I got out like 13 oz total. I used a Medela Swing Pump. I just personally would not have been comfortable at all doing that in an amusement park.

  • I really liked the Medela hand pump... I don't know what it's name is though... Harmony maybe? Anyway, it's a really nice pump I kept it in my diaper bag. It has a really strong suck I could pump really fast with it.
