    Which pump did WIC give you! As a hospital grade pump is $1000 or more.

    Thanks for the well wishes and great information ladies. Super glad I joined this group/forum! I wasn't able to BF my son as long as I wanted to basically because of poor information and no support. So I was so determined to BF with my second baby. Glad I'm on here getting input and information from people who have "been there and done that". I was so happy when she returned to BF, and she was too! She just seemed so at ease and comfortable. I wish I could talk every mom into BFing, because it is soooooo great and the bonding is amazing!

    Now I just gotta get these stones to pass and we'll be aces!

    Thanks again ladies!

    It's a medela double pump...they said they are worth over $300....so probably not a hospital grade pump. Our hospital doesn't have an OB department anymore, so I would have to travel to the hospital where I delivered (45 mins away) to get a pump--and that is IF they would loan it. I

    Medela makes both hospital grade (Symphony, Lactina) and professional grade pumps (PISA, freestyle). I'm betting WIC is giving out one of the professional grade models.
