    Default Need Recs

    My medela swing just died! Can anyone recommend a good pump just to have on hand around the house? I have a PIS at work. Gonna run out and get one now as I need to pump! TIA.

    Another Medela Swing? If you only want it for occasional use, and the Swing was working nicely for you before, maybe you could just buy another one?? I cannot imagine going from an electric pump to a hand pump, but that's just because I'm lazy like that. I do adore my PISA, but that's a lot of $$ to spend to only use it occasionally.

    Yeah I'd do another Swing. I can't wrap my head around a manual. Never had any success with one.

    Done and done. Sometimes the store doesn't have what I need but they had it.

    Thanks everyone!
