Lact-Aid Nursing Trainer vs. Medela SNS

             I am wanting to get one of these to help me relactate and was wondering if anyone has ever tried either one and which one should I get? I want to make sure I spend the money on the one thats going to do best for me and my baby. Any suggestions or advice is greatly needed.

I'll also throw in the links to help show you want they are(if you don't know all ready)

I don't use them, but I know a few moms who do and all of them prefer the Lact-Aid and recommend the SNS only for short-term use with new babies. I have information about them on my profile in one of the widgets that includes video links if you're interested.

I have uses the Medela Starter SNS (A disposable system ideal for short-term (24-hour) supplemental feedings at the breast),


the Medela SNS


the Lact-Aid

For multiple feedings a day and long term use I defintely choose the Lact Aid! You can prepare a bunch of bags of milk in advance (it really heps to have several assemblies as well, a bit of an investment but cheap when you look at the formula you won't buy becuase you brought milk in!).


I found the SNS to be cumbersome and often leaked.
