Re: Good, Informative Article On Buying a Breast Pump
I got that feeling too. If you're breastfeeding you automatically need a pump. With my first I got a mini-electric because I was paranoid about leaving my baby without any expressed milk even if I was only going to be gone for two hours. It was pretty useless though. I was never able to pump more than 1/4 to 1/2 an ounce, no matter how long I spent at it. Hand expression worked better. With my second I didn't bother with a pump at all.
