So, I tried breastfeeding with both of my girls. Ended up with Mastitis so I had to stop. Then again, I never had a good pump..
Which brand would you recommend for electric pumps? Double or single?

I used a Medela swing pumo with DD which I LOVED but it took like 20 mins on each side since it was a single. This time with baby #2 I'm investing in a medela in style since I won't have as much time to pump with a 27 month old and newborn. Definitely go for Medela if you want to pump exclusively for awhile (which is what I did and plan on doing again).

Thanks! I was looking at those and avent, since I will be using Avent bottles. I want to try to not pump exclusively because I want that connection with baby, but I may have to in order to prevent mastitis again, that was the worst ever!!

I loved the Evenflo one, I only got a single one to pump one breast while I was nursing on the other.

I produced SOO much I needed to, my aunt swore by evenflo when she had her twins so she recommended it and I'm glad she did b/c I loved mine.

I had a Medela pump with my daughter. I loved it, it's well worth the money! I even bought a Medela this time around. Target has a sale on Medela pumps right now they're $225, much cheaper than BRU.

OMG! Even the double Evenflo pump wasn't $100! Wow I could never buy something so expensive! But hey if it works for other's that's all that matters:D

Hey, I have a brand new Avent pump that I never used and have been trying to sell for a while. I opened the box so I couldn't return it, but everything in it is still packaged. Its a twin electric one. $219 new, I am asking 150 OBO.



So let me know if you are interested in an Avent pump. :)

I agree! Well worth it. I sold the one I used with DD since I wasn't planning on getting pregnant again so quick and will be buying a new one with this pregnancy for sure!
