My son is 10 months old and I had been renting hospital grade from when he was 3 months old(I know it is too long to rent a pump but I was worried to move to another one with the fear that it might not be as effective). But now, considering that it is pretty expensive continuing it further, I'm planning to buy a new one( I know what you ladies are thinking... since my baby is almost close to year, I may not need to pump during the day, right?). Well, here comes my question #1: If I don't have a freezer stash of bm, should my baby drink cow's milk when I'm away for work ?
If yes, I want to give him bm even when I'm away. So my second question is : What is the best pump out there(under $300)? How can I know if it works for me or not? I can't return it if it doesn't work for me right? I read online that some pumps work good for some people while not for others.
Sorry for too many questions.I'm confused
