Live and learn, I suppose...
So I mostly want a pump so help me get a good supply ASAP and if I do need to go out without baby, have spare milk handy. Really want formula to be a last resort. No need to worry about expressing at work or anything I am taking an extended period of maternity leave. So will mostly be used at home.

I'm really liking look of the unimom allegro. The price is good, reviews have been pretty good and it's a closed system.
So for those that have the unimom they have a combo deal on at the moment with a few little extras. I will post the link, if someone could give me advice on if its worth it or just get the standards machine with no extras?
Special bundle: http://www.unimom.com.au/combo-deals...o-bonus-bundle
Machine by itself: http://www.unimom.com.au/combo-deals...o-bonus-bundle
I don't need a nappy bag (but a spare is always handy!), so i am thinking more from the perspective of the storage bottles and pouches with the bundle deal. Is this what everyone uses to store milk?

If you're after something to help establish your supply you really should go with a hospital grade pump, not a personal use pump for the first 1-3 months. The Medela Symphony hospital grade is brilliant, and can be hired.

Thank you ladies. So if I am expressing to establish supply how many times a day would I express in addition to BF baby? (Feeling a bit confused!)

I had the same question as you a few months ago and ended up going for the spectra s2. Haven't had the chance to use it yet but looks fantastic and is very easy to set up as clean. And i ordered it online and was here in two days....very good customer service and they chucked in loads of extras like milk bags, silicone covers, bottle converters etc

My post got eaten, but i wrote similar things to missie_mack.
you might find that things are easier this time, and bub is able to attach and so pumping is unneccessary.
do you still have contact with the LC? maybe making an appt before baby arrives to make a breastfeeding plan would give you a bit of confidence if you have some ideas just in case you need them.

Thank you ladies, I will follow your recommendation and wait to see how I go when bub arrives.

Help ladies! My baby arrived early on Saturday at 34 weeks. I went to purchase an s2 and they are out of stock. They have the dew 350 in stock and the new one s1 but I can't afford the s1. I am considering the dew 350 which is almost as good as s2 but doesn't have the let down feature and batteries. Im not worried about the batteries will just connect to main power.
So with the let down feature It says this is more important for mums with older bubs rather than newborns and the dew 350 will be fine. But I'm just concerned that it doesn't have all the features of the s2 and I don't fully understand what this let down feature means anyway? Can someone please give me advice. Should I be looking at another pump all together?

I would absolutely recommend a Unimom forte for what you need it for. Hospital grade, double electric pump. I borrowed one a few times last time and this time I have bought my own.
