    Red face Breast Pump Advice

    When I had my daughter, 3 years ago, my lactation consultant turned me on to the Avent Isis hand-pump. The hand-pump was great, low cost and effective, but a little time consuming. Now Avent put out the Avent Isis Duo electric pump, and I haven't heard much rave about it. Has anyone tried the pump out? How well does it work? I looked on Babiesrus and they only had 3 feedbacks on it.

    I do plan on going to work and I'm hoping to try and make it easier for my boyfriend. It was great with my first because I didn't have to work due to me being a stay at home mom. Now that I have to support myself, I have no choice in the matter. I know that the hand-pump is going to take some time and I hear that the electrics are ofcourse faster. But I also hear bad things and electric pumps. Some only have 1 suction level and some have problems with suction in general. Its all a little overwhelming.

    heres a good page too....
    have you thought about renting? That would still cheaper than formula.
    and if a beter pump helps you to keep nursing even beter..
