    Default Medela SNS vs. Lact-Aid

    Any thoughts one these two supplementary nursing systems; Medela SNS and Lact-Aid? Does one work better than the other?

    Please share your thoughts and experiences.

    I don't have any personal experience, but word on the street is that a lot of moms prefer the Lact-Aid.

    Anybody have experience with one or the other (or both)?

    I'm told that the Lact-Aid is a much better system, and that the SNS tubing needs replacing fairly often as it is prone to breakage. I'd happily get myself a Lact-Aid for my DD but unfortunately they don't sell it in the UK and postage would be around $50, almost double what I found the actual Lact-Aid for! Ah well.

    Go with the Lact-Aid if you can. I've also done a load of research into the two systems and most mothers swear by it over the SNS.

    Good luck!

    One consideration with the Lactaid is that you have to replace the disposable bags. 50 bags is only a week's supply for a baby nursing 7 times per day. And the Lact-Aid is only sold by the manufacturer as far as I know...
