    Default Returning to work - cant get away with not pumping

    I guess just keep trying with the formula incase you lose your supply and hope your not in so much pain that you can't function at work.
    Does he have formula mixed in cereal? That could be a way to get some into him
    Because he's only 2 months away from not needing any formula, it may be worth just trying in the meantime to get some in cereal and some from cup- but they are cheeky aren't they?

    Can you get a second hand electric pump? I got a Madela swing for $30 off eBay. I used all the attachments from my Madela lactaset hand pump so the only second hand bit I'm actually using is the motor bit.

    Im concerned about buying a second hand pump as most of them arent closed systems. I would also have to buy all the attachments (shields, tubes etc) for hygine & if thats the case i might as well just buy new.

    If DH isn't working, couldn't DS stay home with him?
    Or do you need to keep the days so as to not lose the spot if/when DH goes back?
    You could of used the money saved to get an electric pump )-:

    This was never an issue for us so I don't have any useful advice sorry.

    What about this pump it is in Brisbane - with replacing the parts it still is a fairly cheap price and it is a closed hospital grade system!

    We need to keep the daycare days as we had enough drama getting him a spot in the first place. Plus dh needs to be able to go to job interviews at short notice & cant take ds with him so its better that he goes to daycare.
