My husband and I can't afford the Medela PIS, which everyone seems to conclude is the best. However, does anyone have any input about the Medela Harmony Manual pump?
I will be staying home with my little one, and I'd just like to have a pump on hand in case of engorgement, or occassional pumping if I go out, etc. Unless it's absolutely necessary, and my LL Leader advises it, I don't plan on pumping every single day. I'd prefer exclusive breastfeeding.
However, will the Harmony Manual be the right choice? Can I still have a LC size me for the proper sized flanges at the hospital even though it's not the PIS? I looked at renting and buying used PIS models, and it's still too expensive. Other than the Harmony Manual, does anyone have any other suggestions?
