Re: breast pump blues
I used the Ameda Purely Yours pump, which I think is just as good as the Medela PIS that most people seem to use, but is less expensive. It is also supposed to be somewhat safer to use 2nd hand because it is a closed system, so you could conceivably get one used and then buy your own attachments. It is still sold as a single user pump, so you should do your research first and see if you are comfortable with that option.
Also keep in mind that the cost of formula would quickly outpace the cost of a pump within a few months.
