    Default Suggestions for small pump...

    Hi ladies! I'm going to be traveling at the end of June with DD and need to be giving her a bottle at least once a day or so as she will start daycare when we return home so she needs to get in the routine of it...but I don't want to lug my PIS around with me. Any suggestions for a small pump - manual or battery operated, that is affordable? I might even end up using it at home some too, as I'd like to start pumping the side she doesn't feed from in the mornings (to start freezer stash) without lugging out the PIS...thanks!!

    I used the Medela Harmony pump for travel. It is very small and easy to pack. I also liked that all of the Medela parts are the same. I could use the same horns, bottles, and even valves and membranes that worked on the PIS.

    Any hand pump. I have had decent luck in the past with an Advent Isis.
