For those of you who have and use a manual pump... what kind do you have?? I HATED my electric pump... and after some recommendations I bought a manual. I went with the Lansinoh and I think I'm already going to try another. I get about 1.5oz to 2 oz total each time I pump but I feel like it's losing suction. I have to readjust mid pumping to get things flowing again
Shaun went out this morning to get me a manual one - we have an electric one on order from Amazon but it hasn't come yet. He got a Tommee Tippee one which was on special offer, I've expressed with it 3 times and it's getting lots and really easy to use. But I agree, every woman is different so different pumps may work better for different people.
I have the Lansinoh manual. It's what I use when I am at births. I've used it since 2009 and it's been great. I don't require lots of stimulation though. Once my milk lets down, I simply just start the suction and let my milk flow.
