    Default For Toting around Your Pump

    When I recently upgraded to a double electric after hand pumping for 5 years (yep, five years) it didn't come with a bag, as it's a Lansinoh. I found this bag at Target, way in the back with the camping gear, and it's insulated and everything. Fits my pump and all the accessories along with a cool pack, and I stick my wallet in there too. Under $20! I've had women ask me about my "purse."

    Cute!

    How do you like your pump? Mine is starting to go. I'll stick it out until it dies (hopefully not before Lulu's a year old) but just in case.

    I actually really like it. The milk never comes into contact with the tubing, so I never have to deal with that mess. The only thing I don't like is that the inside of the horn, if that makes any sense, can be difficult to get into to scrub out -- even the nipple brush I have doesn't get in there just right easily. So I make sure to rinse it out well every single time before anything can dry in there and then come home to wash it up with hot water and lots of soap and scrubbing. There are little bits to keep track of, but that's par for the course with just about any pump.

    But for $150, it's a very good pump. Wish I had gotten one a long time ago and saved myself a lot of effort.

    Thanks. That's a pretty decent price too.

    Great bag! I wish I'd thought of getting a cute bag for my pump - would've been great psychologically, too.

    You have to do whatever works for you. If you still want to pump, kudos to you! And whenever you are ready to stop, just remember how hard you worked and what it did for your DD.
