Breast pump & bottle question Mr's&Family* 2 kids; Arizona 3699 posts

Lansinoh breast pump.
Anyone have one? Thoughts about it? Is it a good/decent pump?



Also, what bottle brand would be the best for a breast fed baby? Like closest to the nipple?



I do plan to EBF but I want to go back to cosmetology school.
I only have 3 months left and it's night classes. 4 hours a night, Monday-Thursday and Saturday (9am-12). So DS won't be on the bottle much, but he obviously needs to be fed so I'll need to pump for when I'm gone. I'm also not planning on going back until he's a little older, maybe around 6-8 months old, if that makes a difference with bottles?



Thanks ladies!

I used gerber nuk and mam bottles for my breastfed baby.

a lady on here told me to use the avent bottles. I believe she said a size 1 nipple as well.

I had the same questions about the bottles for a breastfed baby. I'm thinking about Medela bottles.

For the pump?
I read good reviews about it. I just never heard anyone's personal experiences with it. I think I may purchase it.

The pump I had with my daughter was the Medela In Style (amazing) and I plan on using it once my son is born. As for bottles, we tried a lot of different ones and the only ones she would take was Tommee Tippee for colic/sensitive tummies. She was great going back and forth breast to bottle with Tommee Tippee.
