You DEFINITELY need an electric one.

Most areas have programs where you can borrow one for free.

Call your local lactation specialists at the hospital you had your baby and ask for advice.

HUH??  Yes those manual ones are a work out.   Pumps are not a good way to get breastmilk since they do not contain the hormones which are in a baby's saliva.
