Re: How long did you keep your hospital grade rental?
I had mine a long time -- around a year. It cost me way too much, but I needed one for home and one for work (used the rental at home). Around the year point, I realized it would have been cheaper to buy a second pump! But my friend ended up giving me her old one, so I still had one for at-home use (which was not frequent at that point). I also used Gaia lactation herbs a few times right after going back to work, but they seemed to work almost too well, giving me a bit of oversupply after just a day or two of use.
