Apologies if this is posted in the wrong section. I'm due in a month with first LO and intend to breastfeed but thought it would be a good idea to have bottles and a pump on hand in case I have difficulty with my supply. I was given Tommee Tippee bottles and a sterilizer as a gift, but have read bad reviews of the Tommee Tippee pump. I'd like to use a Medela pump. Am I able to use a Medela Pump with Tommee Tippee bottles?
Also, since this is my first bub and I have no idea how I'll go with breastfeeding, should I spend extra on an electric pump or get a manual; OR wait until bub is born then decide what to buy? Or is it better to have the pump available right after birth?
Finally, I've read amazing things about the Medela Swing but it seems quite pricey. Is it worth the money? Is the Medela mini electric pump comparable? Any advice would be really helpful
