    Re: A few questions about buying a pump

    Agree with calling the Ins ppl back. And tell them baby is in NICU.

    They should cover hospital grade rental.

    Re: Has this happened to anyone?

    The suction seemed to decrease over time. Even when everything was new - tubes, valves, membranes. So I have resorted to renting hospital grade medela pumps.

    Sorry this happened to you today....

    Re: Supply on a business trip?

    Yes, you will definitely need to pump at every chance you get. Everytime your LO would be eating, you should be pumping. Including during the middle of the night, since your LO is 10 weeks.
