I also wanted to point out the bottle nipple you referenced about. Short and fat like a breast nipple is not what you want to look for. I know it seems strange because that is what your nipple looks like before going into the baby's mouth, but it stretches and elongates in the baby's mouth and a teat cannot do that. I would recommend a teat that is long and skinny like the Soothie teat. If you do look into buying a used pump, look for one that is a closed pump system. Medela pumps are open pump systems and even if you buy all new parts, the milk from the previous owner, could still cross with your milk. They are also more prone to bacteria and mold growth in the motor. If you tell me where you are from, I can point you to a good lactation consultant.
