I went back to work for awhile when Tanith was 4 mos and I used my Medela Pump In Style. The one that looks like a backpack. A friend sold it to me for $50 (I know! A steal!) and I LOVED it. It was a double pump, so I didn't have to pump as long, it has adjustable suction, adn it stimulates how a baby suck longer and slower at the beginning of the feed to trigger let-down, then becomes more regular. It's also battery powered or you can plug it in, so very convenient. I will likely use it this time to leave bottle for babysitters, or if I decide to donate breastmilk.
Kelty - I agree with everything that PixieQueen said about the Medela Pump...I have the style that looks like a purse or sholder bag, and I LOVE it...It works very well. I bought mine from the store for around $300.00, but it is def worth every penny. Later I was told that some DHS locations offer the pump at a lower cost, or free depending on income though, so you might want to check that out....I wish I had know that before I bought mine.
I agree with what the other ladies say, I had the same one that Sam has and I do like it, I had some problem with the first one I had, but they are sending me a replacement so I will have one at work and one at home
