SIL gave me a Medela Pump in Style that has been through a few people and yesterday when I went to hook up my new tubing to it the part that connects the tubing to the actual pump snapped (the plastic was just too old). So now I have no breast pump as it isn't a part that can be replaced.
Anyways I don't plan on having to pump that often (if at all) as I will be home full time. But I would still like to have a pump for a night out or emergency. The Pump in Style is like $280 and although I have read that it is one of the best I don't think it will be worth it considering I won't be using it alot. Anyways what kind of breast pump would you recommend? Do you think a manual pump would be okay? They are the most economical option. Should I just wait until after he comes and decide then if I even need a pump or have one on hand just incase?
Here are some of the options I am looking at-
This is my first baby by the way so I am not really sure what to expect with breast-feeding.
