    Hopefully in the next 8/9months lol

    I know $130 seems a lot at the moment but it is still better than $229-$299 for a brand new one...

    It will help maintain your supply and will hopefully prevent any chance of mastitis like you are worried about.

    Who knows the lady selling it may even drop another $10 off if you ask her nicely?

    If you sign up to receive the Specta Newsletter on their website at the grab a coupon section you get free shipping I think...or a discount can't remember which...

    If it were me (and i know everyone is different,so this might not be right for you), i would suck it up and deal with a bit of wrist pain,and just express 1x per day at work, on a lunch break perhaps? Why does it hurt your wrist so much - do you think you could alter your technique at all to minimise pain? Eg, do long, slow pumps instead of lots of little quick ones?

    I think it hurts my wrist cause ive had issues in the past with my neck which extended down my arm into my wrists - i had burning nerve pain in my wrists for a while in the past when my neck was bad. Its probably related to that.

    How long do you pump before it hurts your wrists? Could you just pump for a couple of minutes and that might be enough to receive the fullness and leaking

    I could pump for a couple of minutes on each side. Hopefully that would be enough to maintain my supply

    I would imagine as your DS settles into daycare and gets used to having formula there, you may have more luck at home (especially if your supply drops off). I worked 3 days per week when bf'ing my DD and found that I did need to express at least once during the day or would be too uncomfortable. I found that when my breasts were really full, I would really only have to do a couple of pumps with the manual pump and the milk would just flow out of there! So definitely take your pump to work with you.
    I would just wait and see how you go, if you feel that you won't be able to get through the day at work without an electric pump then I would look for one then.
