Hello Ladies. I'm trying to figure out when I will need a pump and what kind I should get. After the baby is born I plan to breastfeed and be a SAHM. So I most likely won't need a pump right off the bat. I'm due the beginning of Feb. so it's the middle of winter and I probably won't be going out much. What are your opinions about if/when I would need a breast pump? Also, I've been reading online reviews. I've been comparing Medala & Ameda. It seems that Ameda is not only cheaper but when you get the backpack version, has a lot more accessories than Medala. Anyone have thoughts/opinions on these brands. One friend is using an Ameda and she really likes it. Just curious what you all think.
I'm also a SAHM and very rarely need to pump. I use an Avent Isis manual pump and it works great for me. It's easy to use and I'm able to get a decent amount of milk when I need to. I think it cost around $40 and it was definitely worth it.
