I plan on breast feeding, I just wanted some opinions on which pump is better to use... And why?
Electric is wayyyyyy faster and more efficient IMO
I love my electric pump because it's easier and quicker to pump at work :)
*Also my electric pump runs on batteries so that is super helpful if I was out and about and had to pump.
I have only used a manual a few times with my first. It is EXHAUSTING if you need to pump regularly. You do all the work. The electric is like a set it and forget it especially if you do hands free.
Electric was way better.
But, I also liked having my hand pump when I needed it. On the go and etc. The electric pump just wasn't functional for me on the go. But insanely exhausting.
I was using manual pump for the first 2.5 weeks cuz i was so engorged. i got about 2 ounces from each boob but it never made me feel empty. i finally got an electric one and OMG! it felt like heaven! i get 5 ounces from one and 3.5 from the other every two hours. i am no longer engorged and feel so much better after i pump, so with that said.....i say electric is better
