If you used a manual breast pump before Justine's Mama Due November 28 (boy); 1 child; Boynton Beach, Florida 1939 posts

How did you like it ? Does it work out okay or did you hate it?

I like it, but only for occasional use. The key is to get the milk to "let down". Once that happens, the milk flows freely.

I only used it for relief when I was engorged. I MUCH prefer my electric dual pump. It is way faster and doesnt give you a hand cramp. If you plan on pumping for feeding purposes I'd recommend an electric.

Yeah I want the double electric playtex pump but its $72 new. I could probably get it two weeks after she's here. But I was thinking maybe I didn't need a electric one. But I have heard the manual ones suck. I plan on working part time so I need a pump.

That's not that bad if it works as good as you say :). I'm thinking about getting one. How long does it take for you to pump enough milk?

<blockquote><b>Quoting C&C ♡ M&N:</b>" I don't know about your state but here in MS, WIC gives ebf that are returning to work/school a free pump. They gave me a Medela Double Electric pump. If you qualify for WIC, I'd look into it."</blockquote>




Are they used, I am a little weird with certain used things. I have WIC but ne er planned to breast feed so I never talked about it with them.

one to three days. Depends on when I need a bottle for. I usually just nurse unless I have to go someplace. Takes 3 days if I only pump once a day after one nursing session. Or one day if I pump after every session.

Hmm that would be nice. Not trying to sound like a snob I just am a germ a phone with certain things. I would rather buy a manual cheap pump then get a used one.

I'll have to talk to them that would help a lot, thanks for telling me.
