DH gave in! He said "*I* think it's a waste since we have two, but if you feel it's necessary rent a pump"
Gavin turns one in Jan. And my classes end at the end of November. So I only need to pump for a little over two or three months.
So Renting costs $48 to buy the kit plus $60 a month. For the medela symphonie.
Or I know of someone (not personally, but through a playgroup) that is selling a 2009 PISA for $200. (sell new here for $359.99 - which there is no way I can convince DH that's worth it) I've asked her a bunch of questions on what 'gently used' means. She offered to let me try it (umm no thanks if I want it I'll sterilize first ).
I know some of you are totally against buying used and others feel ok with sterilizing.
