Does anyone use a pump? What kind do you use? How much milk are you usually able to pump in a session?

I have tried pumping before and had 2 different pumps but never managed to get any significant amount of milk They were only hand pumps though, maybe if I had been able to afford an electric pump I'd have had more success.

I pump everyday to save milk up for when I go back to work. I use a Medela In Style electric pump. I get more milk in the morning. I Get about 2-3 oz a time and i just pump two to three times a day. I tend to pump on one side while my daugther nurses on the ot her. That seems to work best for me. If your little one tends to have a long sleep period at night consider pumping at that time, you may get more.

At the moment Sam's waking more often at night, he's had a bit of a rough patch of sleeping and wanting to feed more, I'm hoping he'll settle down soon.

I just don't seem to get on with pumping, but maybe if we're lucky enough to have #4 we'll get an electric pump. I hear that makes a big difference. How did you choose your pump?

sorry for the delay getting back... I have a hospital grade pump which i bought used for 50 bucks. My sister in law bought one from Walmart which I believe is
The First Years brand. She pumps exclusively and it works really well for her and i think it runs around 80 bucks which is really good for an electric double pump.

That sounds like a really good price for an electric pump. I haven't found anything that reasonable over here. I'll definitely try to get hold of an elecric pump if we are lucky enough to have #4.
