Oh definitely subbing. I want to breast feed as much as possible but I know due to medical reasons there will times when I'm going to need to pump.
I am a little confused though. Everyone here is recommending good pumps to use but does that necessarily mean that you have been using the same brand of bottles? Ie avent pump, you used avent bottles?

Same as missie_mack. I didn't use pumps that matched bottles. And many slimline bottles fit other pumps. Otherwise you just collect the milk and store or decant into the bottle you prefer.
Oh and listen to missie_mack... She has awesome advice on all these things!! Every piece of advice she's given me on breast feeding and pumping was invaluable to me.

I have closer to nature and avent bottles but a unimom pump (bought a few extra bottles for storage that I will pump into that are unimom brand but will just tip what I need into a different brand bottle).

I have never had an issue with supply, but Avent manual pump is the only one that gets milk out of my breasts. Ice tried an electric one and another manual one!

Oh good. I really like the closer to nature bottles but haven't had the chance to look at their pumps. Sorry OP for hijacking the tread for a bit!

Electric Breast Pump - Hassle Free
I've been using SnowBear Electric Breast Pump (I'm from India and have bought it online @ www.HealthManas.com btw..) since 4 weeks now...! Never faced any issue. I feel no hurdle while the motor is onn. I guess problems arise when we try to fill bottles of milk to store in refrigerators due to many social problems. Otherwise, it should be good.

There is an advent manual pump I have found cheap on catch of the day for $50 everywhere else I have looked have them for $100.. Does anyone think this is a good deal? I only want a pump for if I have to be away from bubs for a few hours so that my husband can feed also, I really don't think I need an electric pump as I plan to be breast feeding most of the time.. I'm so confused lol I was only thinking avent as I have the bottle/steriliser set already. Any bad reviews on the avent manual pump?

I have an avent manual pump. It was the only one I could find at the hospital pharmacy!!! Lol so I have no comparison with other ones but I found it excellent. It was comfortable to use and efficient. No complaints here except for the price tag of $100 so that sounds like a bargain.

I have a unimom allegro. Love it! When I bought it she threw in a switch kit so I can use it manually and an adaptor thing so I can use any bottle to collect the milk and also some breast milk storage bags Best service and such a good price!!
