Re: Freestyle- to buy or not to buy
I whined about mine after I bought it, but now that my body is adjusted to it, I get more milk using the freestyle than the hand me down pis from my sil.
I like the hands free component, with the bra clips. The pumping bustier kept sliding and shifting (do you wear them over your bra?), but the clips hold everything in place. Also, the tubes stay in place more securely, so when I shift around at my desk during pumping, everything still stays plugged in.
It's pricey, but I'm happy with it. Target online has it cheaper than in stores, and if you do a registry, you can use your registry completion coupon towards it. Also, AAA has a discount with Target online. I think there is also a baby store people mention on here that has it cheap, but you have to call in to get the price. Maybe search the previous freestyle threads for that info.
