Well I had to start pumping because my little guy was diagnosed with Failure to thrive...so my LC had me pumping and giving him an 1OZ bottle after each feeding. I had no pump because I wasnt planning on having anymore kids and sold me Medela double electric that I used with my daughter.
She suggested I contact a WIC office and ask for a pump and if they didnt have one for me to ask about a pedal pump....no electric ones left but they did have a pedal pump! This thing looked barbaric to me when they first gave it to me but I got it home set it all up (they gave me the new attachments for it) and I just LOVE it! It is very efficient does an awsome job of pumping and it isnt painful at all! I like it BETTER then the electric medela I had a few years ago with my daughter!
I told me LC that I was looking to buy one incase WIC needed theirs back anytime soon and she is a Medela dealer...she said their hospital was letting her sell theirs for cost which is $30..so I bought it from her! They have one on Ebay right now too though if you do a search of Medel pedal pump. Sometimes I even have my husband do the pumping
