    Default Best hand pump

    We will be traveling in January with my parents. They have offered to babysit the kids so DH and I can go out alone while we are there. I don't want to lug my PISA along on the trip, but will need to provide DD with enough milk so DH and I can be gone for a day (not to mention keeping me comfortable.) Does anyone have any recommendations on a good, small and cheap pump I could pack along for the trip?

    I have the Medela harmony, and it works fine for me in a pinch (not like the PIS, but fine). It's $23? It has a separate function for "let down" with a faster shorter suction, and I like that. I'm sure they're all pretty much the same, though ...

    I used the Avent Isis every day for almost a year. It worked great for me.
