    The Harmony is a great manual pump. It has a small lever at the top that allows you to pump fast (to initiate let-down). Then you move down to the big lever to empty the breast.

    Your WIC office might be able to provide you with a pump. That's an excellent suggestion.

    Oh, and don't forget about the best cheap pump in the world--your hands! Hand expression is easy, efficient (when you learn how) and totally FREE! If you want some info on this, let us know.

    for me...i preferred manual expression to using a manual pump. with manual expression, i got a better yield with less work. don't rule that out as an option. there are great websites that help teach the best manner in which to manually express. i am very embarrassed to admit that i cannot remember what they are right now!@!

    What is WIC and what is BPA? I think some one in the earlier threads said that Medela's products are BPA free and Avent is not. But I don't know what that means.
    Thanks for all the suggestions though. I appreciate it!
