Ok so I have to share my excitement about this...DH just wouldn't get it, nor would any of my girlfriends as their kids are all too old.
I mentioned earlier this week somewhere on here that my Medela electric pump was broke. No warranty-hand me down twice. So I went all week worried about the 4 frozen bags of milk that I have left in the deep freeze.
I had to do something and b/c of yucky employment insurance being so low, I decided I would cave and buy myself a manual pump. I was terrified b/c I've only heard negative things about them.
Well...I set the whole thing up so that I would know how it should look after I sterilize it and I put it on. After nursing LO for at least 45 minutes for his bedtime feeding, I pushed on the handle about 4 times and had milk just coming out freely! I couldn't believe it. No pain...I could hardly even feel it!
I am just sooooo happy!!!!
I have no idea how well it will go tomorrow morning when I try it but I guess it should be fine since I am always gushing with milk even after the first few feedings!
Ok I'm done! I just had to share my suprise and excitement with anyone that would listen. In case anyone is interested it was a Lansinoh pump. Only $45.00 (canadian)
Happy pumping ladies!!
