    Default Breast pump

    If you want to hire the best get a medela symphony, they are Wonderful. I've been using one for 7.5 months. Second to that I'd recommend the medela swing.

    I saw a lactation consultant at my CHN check up and she advised full time expressing for at least a week then try bf again. I'll hopefully be able to get him to latch but over time he's become a nipple chewer (started well before I introduced a bottle) and refuses to take a good mouthful of areole - now my nips are ridged, scabbed and I was suffering very painful vasospasm post feeding that would last for up to 40 minutes. Made getting any sleep close to impossible. Bottle feeding and pumping is hard and takes time but at least at night I can sleep after without pain, esp if DH helps with feeding and changing so I just have to pump and clean afterwards. Thank you all or your advice and support (as usual I feel much better after reading people's messages)

    Default Breast pump

    I have been exclusively pumping for over 6 since DD was a few weeks old and have the avent manual, Medela swing and Unimom forte. I find Unimom forte to be the best. I have used this to build my supply successfully.
