i plan on breastfeeding my daughter when she arrives in feb, and im a first time mommy so i have a few questions. 1) does anyone have a recomendation for a good cheap automatic breast pump? (i only need a single pump, i dont need one that does both b**bs at once i dont think) 2) any tips? 3) anything i should know? i will be attending a breastfeeding class and i have done a very fair amount of reading but theres nothing like hearing from someone who has done it already.
thank you for your time guys :)

I bought one from walmart it was a evenflo it worked great I think it was like 30 bucks lol make sure you don't get a manual one OMG talking about some bad hand cramps with them. Also it helps a whole lot to get storage bags. BF can be a challenge but as long as you stay focused and don't give in to easy formula way you can do it. Good luck. :D

I have Cigna for insurance and if you can get a prescription from your doctor they cover 100% of the cost for a hospital grade one. Id call your insurance company cause they might give you one to use thats one of the best you can get.
