I'm a soon to be mom, for the first time, and am fairly lost! I want to bf my son, but will have to return to work at some point not too long after his birth due to financial reasons. At this point, I'm considering returning part time after 3 weeks, then full time after 6 weeks. Best case is being off for the full 6 weeks, then going straight to fulltime.
In any case, I'm trying to pick out a breast pump and am uttery lost. I need to choose an affordable model, but want one that will function well and not have too many problems. I've been reading reviews on various pumps, but haven't been able to come to a good conclusion about what will be the best choice. I did notice that some reviews on various models mentioned that they didn't work well for large-breasted women, which is DEFINITELY a concern in my case.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Major pros or cons to any kinds/models? Manual or electric? Brand? Single or double?
I really need some help!
