    Default where to rent hospital style breast pump

    Hi

    Has any one found a good place to rent a hospital style breast pump? the ones that do the suction by themselves? I am in the country so they have to deliver.

    Im thinking ahead, im not due till august, but i would like to be prepared.

    I expressed with my DD in hospital and when i was discharged i struggled with the little batery ones. I cant breast feed, im a red head and my nipples bled all over the place and i had other issues too.

    I dont wan tto use formula, i realy want this baby to have EBM for as long as possible, at least 6 months exclusively.

    Thanks

    I think most chemists rent them, but if you want to try for 6 months, have a look on eBay. I got mine from there second hand, and when I resold it (again on eBay), I got more than I paid for it!

    It was a lot cheaper to buy one than rent it for 3 months and you can also buy new ones cheaper than in stores if you don't like the idea of second hand.

    Good luck!

    You can hire them from the ABA (you get a discount if you are a member) or most chemists.

    If you plan on using it long term, I'd just buy one. I expressed exclusively for 13 months with my Medela Freestyle. It cost me $660 and I sold it for $270 when I was finished with it. They are only about $500 now brand new.

    Thanks will check the ABA.

    I was looking for the hospital style ones, the big ones with the swaying tubes that controll suction. They run over $1000 second hand on ebay.

    The medela swing and freestyle are not what im after, i tried them last time and had trouble.
